    About "Lynn Kurland"

      • Lynn Kurland

        Lynn began her writing career at the tender age of five with a series of illustrated novellas entitled Clinton s Troubles in which the compelling hero found himself in all sorts of well, trouble She was living in Hawaii at the time and the scope for her imagination poisoned fish, tropical cliffs, large spiders was great and poor Clinton bore the brunt of it After returning to the mainland, her writing gave way to training in classical music and Clinton, who had been felled with arrows, eaten by fish and sent tumbling off cars, was put aside for operatic heroes in tights.Somehow during high school, in between bouts of Verdi and Rossini, she managed to find time to submerge herself in equal parts Tolkien, Barbara Cartland and Mad Magazine During college, a chance encounter with a large library stack of romances left her hooked, gave her the courage to put pen to paper herself, and finally satisfied that need for a little bit of fantasy with a whole lot of romance

    1. My favorite was Lynn Kurland's The Gift of Christmas Past. I haven't read Lynn in a while and had forgotten how much I enjoy her writing and stories. If you like time travel, this is one to miss.


    2. There is four stories in this book.The first is: The gift of Christmas Past. Abigail Garrett finds herself in 1238 after jumping into Murphy's Pond and when she surfaces she in a moat. Miles de Piaget was being gloomy in his great hall which isn't much. When Abby bangs on the doors of his keep after taking a swim in his moat, she is frightened and cold, and filthy. She is hoping for some help from within. After telling him a crazy story he is sure she must have hit her head. Only after a few hou [...]


    3. Not my favorite And Miles was one of the characters I was most looking forward to his story, he was jilted The angel cat didn't work for me, and I never feel satisfied with anthologies because they are so short I finished Gideon and Megan's story as well, I had always wondered about them These stories are just to fast paced, there is no chance for anything to build, it's one minute this the next minute that I love all the characters, but their stories aren't what you know and expect with a Lynn [...]


    4. This book includes 4 Lynn Kurland novellas which cover a number of different romantic genres. I have read several Kurland historical novels (with time travel) and found these equally enjoyable. One thing you can count on in Kurland's novels is interesting characters and lots of humour. These were a joy to read!


    5. A wonderful anthology collection of the novellas and shorter stories that appeared in other books. If you have purchased some of the collections that she has been in (for example Christmas Cat), you may want to double check that these are ones that you still need. It is a trade, which I understand but wish it would fit in with my other Kurland books. A bunch of great stories that tie together some of the characters you see in other books and complete their stories (like Ian, Miles, and Jennifer) [...]


    6. I really enjoyed the book it was so funny from time to time I was laughing which caused me some strange look, but I had fun. The ghosts especially made me laugh I guess it depends on what you like but it was a great summer read!


    7. Four short stories with one in the De Piaget series, two in the MacLeod series, and the fourth in both De Piaget and MacLeod. Both series intertwine with historical paranormal romance and time travel into Scotland.I'd almost forgotten how much fun Lynn Kurland is to read. She romps through romance and flips through time with joyous abandon creating warm, memorable characters about whom you can't help but want to know more.Series"Gift of Christmas Past" (De Piaget, 5)"Three Wise Ghosts" (MacLeod, [...]


    8. I really like Lynn’s novels, but I don’t like the Novellas. I wish she would have gone the whole nine yards with Miles' character. In the short stores she doesn't have time to develop the relationships enough so it seems (to me) to cheapen them. With Christmas Cat, I don’t mind reading a book that makes me roll my eyes, but seriously, falling in love and deciding to get married in 24 hours? And a talking ghost cat? Come on. In Christmas Spirits, it wash. I Like Megan and Gideon, and it set [...]


    9. All four books are from the same brilliant author and give you a good sample of her talent. I highly recommend reading this.I'm not rating it, since I have yet to finish it, but these are the two I've read:And the Groom Wore Tulle - Fabulous story. Couldn't put it down. So glad Ieon got his own story. So cute. In my opinion though, this short novella really should have been an 'extra' put at the end of the first story "A Dance Through Time". Because he's mentioned throughout that one and his whe [...]


    10. I have read all three of these stories previously, but didn't know they were all a part of the same anthology. I agree with everyone else commenting, that Mile's story was a let-down. I had been so excited to finally read about him, and then to have it be just a short story with some angel catat was just annoying. And I always hate when you can tell that she wrote this before she really planned out the families and couples. Mile's family comes to visit at the end and she mentions a few of them b [...]


    11. OK, I think I am on a Lynn Kurland kick. This is her third book I have read in two weeks. I have another lined up to start today and and 15 more in my shopping cart. :o) This book is a collection of four Novellas. I loved three and liked one. Some of the characters are familiar from other stories and some are new. The heroes were, as usual, quite amazing and the heroines were each so different from each other. Lynn's characters really come alive. At first I was suprised at how quicky the charac [...]


    12. There are four short stories in this compilation and each of them are worth reading. I wasn't so sure about the first one, because it has a cat's ghost playing matchmaker, but I got over that and really loved it. Each story is different, the characters are well-rounded. I found myself giggling at the clothing choices in two of the stories (especially a medieval highlander wearing a wedding dress because he thought if he were in heaven he should dress accordingly. I'm still grinning about it.) I [...]


    13. not my favorite collection of Kurland's to be honest. i enjoyed Miles' story as I previously read it in a different short story compilation, though it was a bit rushed. Megan and Gideon was cute as well, though VERY rushed as well. Jane and Ian's story was my favorite of the group and didn't feel too rushed. I enjoyed their backstories and their courtship. Sydney and Sam's story was painful to get through the beginning and then a bit better as they got around to discovering they liked each other [...]


    14. Four lighthearted Macleod and de Piaget storiesFour short stories fill in the de Piaget and Macleod family tree. Here are stories extracted from several different anthologies and covering the romances of medieval Miles de Piaget with future girl Abby; Ian Macleod into the future with Jane Ferguson; current day Gideon de Piaget with Megan Macleod McKinnon; and a very unexpected current times romance in Alaska between Samuel Macleod and the redoubtable Sydney wilderness guide. Lots of fun and very [...]


    15. Sweet little 4 stories all by the same author. Fills in some of the stories on the lesser characters in other books. Fun, fast, and lighthearted. My favorite was And the Groom Wore Tulle, where a Scotsman in the past comes into the future. He knows about the future because other clansmen have gone their, but finds himself there, and in a wedding shop. The whole couple pages of whether he's trying to decide if he's in Heaven, Hell or Limbo, and then decides he will put on one of the "angel outfit [...]


    16. As much as I couldn't wait to read about Abigail and Miles, I will admitt that having a talking Sir Sweetums was a bit much :( but for the most part I liked the story. I enjoyed Gideon and Megan's story quite a bit. A lot of these characters I've met previously in other books, and am glad to FINALLY be hearing their stories. I LOVED Ian and Jane's story and although I don't believe I've met Sydney and Sam beforeeir story was wonderful! :)


    17. This is a collection of short stories that are wonderful complements to characters from other books she has written. The Gift of Christmas Past is Miles de Piaget's story, The Three Wise Ghosts is the story of Gideon de Piaget and Megan MacLeod McKinnon, And the Groom Wore Tulle is Ian MacLeod's story, The Icing on the Cake is Samuel MacLeod's story. These stories give you more background on each of the characters which enrich your reading of related books.


    18. Deliciously funny, heartwarming and charmingly romanticThis reader's interest was grabbed right from the start with the matchmaking antics of Sir Sweetums, the 'friendly' bickering of the ghostly matchmakers and of course I love all things MacLeod! This is my first introduction to this author and immediately purchased four full length novels which I look forward to reading! Well done Ms. Kurland


    19. The Gift of Christmas Past -This was a little short but it had everything I love about Kurland's novels. Romance, time travel and a knight ready to rescue a lady. I loved this one so much it was such a sweet little story. The Three Wise Ghosts -Was really quite cute especially with the bickering ghosts having to intervene to get the two leads to really notice each other. And the ending was as sweet as I could have hoped for.


    20. While this wasn't a BAD anthology, I was left wanting more from it. The female characters all read the same and the characters seemed isolated from everyone else but who they end up with. Four stories of the same feel just left me wishing for a different book. I'm not going to give up on Kurland, but I think next time I'll try a full length novel in hopes that there are other interactions of different sorts.


    21. The Gift of Christmas Past - 4 starsThe Three Wise Ghosts - 3 starsAnd the Groom Wore Tulle - 2 starsThe Icing on the Cake - 4 starsI guess that averages out to 3 stars, but I'll give this anthology 4 anyway, because 3 of the 4 stories were pretty cute, especially the first and last ones.


    22. PB-B @ 2001, 12/01. DePiaget, Book 13. Four novellas in the collection: The Gift of Xmas Past @ 1996 from The Christmas Cat; And the Groom Wore Tulle @ 1999 from Veils of Time; The Three Wise Ghosts @ 1997 from Christmas Spirits; and The Icing on the Cake @ 200 from Opposites Attract. I always want more!!!


    23. I liked all the stories, although they all could have been longer. I liked "The Gift of Christmas Past" and "The Icing on the Cake" better than "The Three Wise Ghosts" and "And the Groom Wore Tulle". Everything averaged out to be about three and one half stars.


    24. I love almost any book by Lynn Kurland this one was no exception. All 4 books were fun,clean, silly and horribly romantic. All these characters are from the McLeod clan and a reading order for her books can be found on her websight.


    25. I really liked all of the stories in this anthology, but my favorite was The Gift of Christmas Past since it was part of the DePiaget side. The others were great too, though, and like the other 99% of the Lynn Kurland books I've read, I couldn't bear to stop reading!


    26. Four novellas. I am not sure why Kurland's heroines often have to meet their true love covered in sewage or mud or muck but they were quick, light, enjoyable stories.


    27. I especially liked Ian Macleod's story and of course Miles' story was awesome too. Any story with ALL of the de Piaget's is sure to be HOT.
