    A very enjoyable Christmas anthology featuring the following three stories. On the Secretary's Christmas List by Carole Mortimer (4 stars) – Romance between famous photographer Jackson and his assistant Bree. They’ve had a great working relationship for a year, but now Jackson is beginning to notice Bree as more than an assistant when he starts seeing other men showing an interest in her and his jealously kicks in.

They’ve had a great working relationship for a year, but now Jackson is beginning to notice Bree as more than an assistant when he starts seeing other men showing an interest in her and his jealously kicks in. A really cute Christmas romance that also features cute puppy, Beau, who is a Christmas present to Jackson’s son. The Soldier, the Puppy and Me by Myrna Mackenzie (5 stars) – Reluctant war hero Trey is back in his hometown as a favor to a relative to be the Grand Marshall in the town’s Christmas Festival. Next door neighbor Ella, who he has a shaky past with from their younger days, is in charge of the festival so there is no avoiding of the two meeting up again. Good thing that puppy Fizz (who Ella is fostering for Christmas) is around to get these two together. This was my favorite of the stories. Fizz stole the show with every scene he was in. The matchmaking pup was simply adorable and just too cute for words. A definite winner. The Patter of Paws at Christmas by Nikki Logan (4 stars) – Romance between Gabe and Ingrid who both work at an Australian zoo and are currently monitoring African wild dogs. Although this story took place at Christmastime there was very little Christmas here. And the puppies in the story were rarely seen, since they were hidden for the most part in one of the dens that Gabe and Ingrid were monitoring. Despite that, this story still kept my interest for its uniqueness and I learned about something I was not familiar with before.

    Cute anthology of Christmas stories featuring dogs. The second story by Myrna Mackenzie with the adorable matchmaking dog Fizz was my favorite. :)

    These were three super cute Christmas romances featuring puppies as the theme. I enjoyed each of them. The first one may be my favorite though because the characters stuck with me.

    I love anything to do with puppies. They are so cute and cuddly. All three of the novellas were stories having to do with a puppy or puppies. I think my favorite was the second book because how could you not like Fizz and a hometown hero, although I thought setting the third book in a zoo was unique and the first book featured a child and a dog. How could you go wrong with any of these stories. All three books were light, fluffy Christmas reads and I enjoyed them. I received this book from Netgalley I love anything to do with puppies.

    This was a fun 3 book anthology from three very talented writers. I am an animal lover, so the cover grabbed me from the first. The combination of puppies/dogs (even feral dogs) and the Holidays brings a smile, and so did all three of the stories. I would not sit down and read them in one sitting, because they could become overwhelming. Just keep the book around for a quick getaway/escape read during the Holidays. *I received my copy from NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

I will defo have to say its equal in goodness with the second story, but in different ways. I would have to say this story is mainly centred around the puppy, Fizz. I love the way its written and told. This puppy is the role. Fizz Brings this couple together, Hes a very smart, funny dog. You would love him. Basically the story is about a hero who comes home, Trey. This guy seems to come across as not realisng hes good at anything. Hes had past problems with Ella, well to be true, i wouldnt even call it a problem, more of a misunderstanding that could have easily been explained, but i think time did them both a favour. Anyways, Trey is in the hometown that hes never liked due to his parents, for a christmas festival. He didnt want to come back, but he did for his cousin. The whole down calls him a hero, due to the fact he went to war. Ella has always had feeling for Trey, even when she was little, and he told her not to pry into his life. Which had hurt her feelings, so when she knew he was coming back into town, she wasnt looking forward to it, because she knew he didnt want to be there, and obviously she still had feelings for him. Ella also gets fizz for christmas, fostering over christmas. So you may guess who the story will go, Ella falls for both boys, but im not going to tell you if she decides to keep the dog or if Trey returns the love. I guess youll have to read it to find out. Enjoy, it is a good story.! -- I finished reading the second story in the book today, and i have to say its a lot better than the first, just saying, not that there was anything wrong with the first, but this one i just seemed to enjoy more. This one was called, “The Patter Of Paws At Christmas,” Such a cute title, dont you think? This one was quite interesting. You werent just learning about the couple and there relations as well as there pasts. You were also learing about the care for wild dogs, which i found quite interesting, as im a dog fan. This story was written very well. I love how the story ends and comes together and how everything works out, and to me, it just seemed like this would happen anyday to anyone. Its a story thats quite possible to be like a live story, get what i mean? The book is based in a zoo environment, and this couple have been together before, but from Ingrids own problems about herself got in the way, so she left Gabriel. They werent a couple, couple before, they had just spent the night together. Ingrid comes across as a insure person who has a lot of doubt ans isnt sure whether she can trust, or put beleive into future things because of past emotions. Her parents divorced when she had just moved out, leaving her with the “we only stayed together for you.” To me thats a low blow, and i can see who Ingrid would take that. So Ingrid realsises her parent love for one another wasnt real, so no doubt she questions everything else. When a new zoo keeper swoops in and takes the job she really wanted, she takes a step back fromGabriel, as she isnt wanting to get too attached to him, as well as she was putting blame to him that she didnt get the job. Gabriel comes across as a sexy guy but he doubts himself as well, all due to his parents. His parents dont like what he does for a living, they dont like the way he rebels to be able to do things he wants to do with his life they way he wants to do it. When Ingrid backs off, Gabriel goes to his insecurities thinking he’s just not good enough for her. Which to me is really sad, because this guy, i know hes not real, but the things he does, not many people would go to such extremes as he does. Anyways, the ending, thats what i really want to talk about. The confessing of love for one another. I think the last few chapter of this short story is such so sweet, i can actually feel my heart weeping, hahha. No seriously, its really good, if i cried, i probably would. The ending, is so touching, so, god its just so dreaming. It happens when Ingrid is vaccinating the pups when she starts talking to them, soothing them inn away, and what she talks about is Gabriel. She talks about her parents divorce why she cant, whys she scared to trust or to believe in love. she admits that she loves him but she cant have him. The way she talks about him, gggoddd its just sooo, damn you have to read it !!!! Obviously Gabriels hears it all, and the way it all happens, him finding out, is quite sweet acutally and funny in a way. But when he tells her he heard it all, he just confess too. Its hard to describe without giving too much away but just read it -- As you can see above the book is called A Puppy For Christmas, so you would automatically think this whole book is about puppies, which yes you are right. It does have some involvement with puppies, but the book is acutally not just one story but three. I know, interesting, right? So yes this book is broken up into three completely different stories by three different authors. Heads up for you guys, This book is an erotic one, do no its not all about puppies, if you get my drift Ive only read half, well ive nearly finished the first one, so im only going to give you a review of what i think of the book so far. Remember this book is broken up into three stories, so each story isnt going to belong. The first story is called, “On The Secratary’s Christmas List.” This story is about Bree, the secratary, who works for an artist/ photograher, who also happens to have a lot of money. He seems like an interesting character, but then again dont they always? Jackson has a son, but hes not married and obviously has commitment problems, that what i think. Theres obviously a reason why there is no mother, right? Anyway, Bree got this job on a one of chance, she lives in the basement of Jackson home. Shes a secratary, as well as she looks after Jacksons son alot. She gets on really well with them both, and she loves and shes very professionally about her job. She got this job due to the fact she had no where to stay, as her past finance was caught sleeping with her sister. I know right? Its bad enough the lousy guy cheated on her, but with her sister! thats just crossing the line way too much. So you can guess Bree hasnt spoken to her family at all since it happened. Know its been a year, and the cheating bastard is back, hes come calling. But Bree is starting to have feelings for Jackson, well shes always had feeling for Jackson, but know hes noticing her. Jackson doesnt mix work with pleasure, so that would inculde his assistant, but all of a sudden Bree’s going on dates, and for some unknown reason to him, he doesnt like it. When he sees her in a knew light, looking sexy, all he wants to do, is devour her. Its precisly what he does. They havent slept with one another yet, but Jackson has got to the stage of giving Bree a pleasureable moment. I have to say so far, i like the story but i feel that it could be better and its seems one sided, mainly about Bree but i dont mind. I guess i better get reading to find out how it ends….. —– Okay, just finished the book, and it wasnt exactly the ending i was expecting. It would seem i had the story wrong, the story seemed to in a way, involve around Jacksons son, which i didnt see coming. It would seem Jackson doesnt have any relationship problems because, well how do i tell yout his…. urm Jacksons son isnt his son. I know confusing, yeah thats what i thoought too. Danny, the son, is actually jacksons sisters son, but his sister died a long time, so he adopted danny, which is sweet. Anyways to be honest i dont think the first story was that good. its written well and all, but its a little off. They both ended up conviding with each pther about there pasts and secrets. I did think it was sweet when Jackson told Bree he was in love with her. Over all its a good light read but it just didnt feel complete to me.

    The first two stories in this anthology are pretty meh, cliched contemporaries. BUT the last story is something special with its unique setting and twist on "puppies for Christmas"--it's set at a zoo, where an African wild dog has recently given birth in a den that's about to collapse and the zookeepers are trying to save her and her puppies. This is all, of course, happening when they're short-staffed over the holidays, and the two zookeepers on hand happen to have a romantic past.

But the setting and situation is striking, fresh, and fascinating--even mildly suspenseful with the ticking time bomb of the den's ceiling about to give way any day now. I highly recommend that any animal-lover check it out. Just feel free to skip the first two stories (especially because the wacky hijinks of the second story mostly involve the heroine being an idiot that keeps being careless with a puppy's safety).

The first two stories have cute puppies that you see interact with their new families. The third is a little different as they are wild African puppies in a zoo. Not for cuddling. They are short novellas. I liked them but they are short. They also have love scenes that I skimmed over. They fall in love in a short amount of time or realize it in fast amount of time.

So they can give them shots, tag them and make sure they are healthy. They were a couple for a brief time. They both have insecurities that their families helped them get.

Trey McFadden had a rough childhood. His parents were mean to him. He rebelled and joined the service. His friend who loaned him money to leave town, Stuart, asked Trey to come back to town and be in the parade to boost the morale of the people in town since a big company left town and left many people without jobs.

The dog den may cave in any time soon and there is a mother dog in there with her babies and they won't come out. Gabe and Ingrid have a monitor and are watching the entrance to the cave to see if any change in the walls. Gabe and Ingrid had a one night stand a year ago and things are tense between them while they watch the dogs. Ingrid digs a hole from one den to the one the baby dogs are in for an exit if the other entrance caves in. Ingrid digs the hole since Gabe is too big to go in and dig the hole. They talk out their difference and things happen between them and the puppy's are saved when the cave entrance falls in. A very good real.

    I am not a dog lover, but I really enjoyed these three very different (but all well worth the read) stories.Each was long enough and very detailed for an anthology book. The first story was too full of exclamation points for my taste, but the story was unique, and the main characters were very atypical but interesting too.

Full of warmth and holiday cheer, this one warmed my heart. Story 3 about zookeepers in Australia monitoring the birth of wild dogs in their zoo exhibit was pretty serious with lots of emotion from a couple with a past to work through. The dogs did not have that "cute" factor, but the story was a unique take on dogs and romance.

    This is a sweet book filled with 3 romantic Christmas novellas that all involve puppies! You can’t go wrong with a book like this. Each novella is a quick, fast read that will definitely put you in a happy mood. I will admit I really enjoyed the novellas by Carole Mortimer and Myrna Mackenzie more than I did Nikki Logan’s novella.

    This is a very simple story that shines the light on how animals have served man during war. Based upon facts about a harlequin Great Dane puppy that became a 'mascot' for a New Zealand regiment during the 'Great War', the delicate watercolour illustrations help to balance out the horror that WWI was for all soldiers at the front. This tale that can be easily read and discussed with children of all ages. It includes the backstory of the actual dog 'Freda' and her contribution during the war.

    I dressed up my golden retriever in an elf hat and took a quick snap (before he tried to eat the hat!) and won a copy of "A Puppy for Christmas" from Nikki Logan. I loved all the stories. They're classic Mills and Boon, although Nikki's had a fantastic twist by setting the story in a zoo and the puppies being wild dogs rather than the cute and cuddly tame type. Heartwarming stories for any time of year.

    This was on my Christmas reading list for 2013, but did not get to it until this Christmas. Fun, seasonal stories for the busy Christmas season. Carole Mortimer has been a favorite for some time. Always happy to find a new author (or two) to add to my list of books to look for ... and both Myrna Mackenzie and Nikki Logan are just that. It's also fun to read Christmas stories from a "down under" author to help feel a little bit of summer warmth on these cold winter nights.

    I grabbed this one mainly for the Nikki Logan story, and that was definitely my favourite of the trio, although the Myrna Mackenzie story was fun too. I was less certain about the Carole Mortimer story as I was thrown out by the central puppy having been given as an unexpected gift. Still worth reading for the wild dogs and the fostered rescue puppy of the other two though.

    I received an ARC copy from Net Gallley in exchange for my honest review. I enjoyed all 3 stories, but I did prefer the first two stories more that the third story. The Wild dogs were not as cute to me. Still, this is a fun Christmas read with 3 stories with strong characters and compelling plots. Recommended.

    Cute stories. Wished the puppies featured more heavily in them - the first one was barely a mention. I think I liked the 2nd story the best. I enjoyed the third one but the angst was a bit much when all they really had to do was have a conversation and since it was a short story I found it frustrating as I couldn't figure out why they weren't - both of them seemed a little immature.

    Three stories in this book, all centered around getting a puppy for Christmas. All three stories are very different with three different authors writing the stories. Great way to try out new authors. I liked all of these authors, will try more by all of them.
