“It has been my pleasure to review ‘The Object of Romance Anthology”. These five talented authors have created a collection of stories that will grace your bookshelf. Sweet and romantic, each one is centered about an ordinary object or idea that becomes extraordinary in the light of love. I recommend it! “Reviewer: Jeanne Treat, author of Dark Birthright
“From murder and mysterious maladies to missed chances, magic, and mix-ups, this collection of contemporary shorts will keep you on the edge of your love seat.” Loretta A. Murphy, Author of The Pipes Are Calling
“Each unique story has it's own symbol of love that adds to it's flare, from something as simple as the secret meanings of flowers, a once sought after award, a lovely pretty blue dress, a mysterious Civil War era portrait, and a last but by no means least at all, a Carved Celtic Box linked to the realm of Fairies and their magic. A must have for the collection of any lover of sweet romance and true love.” Stephanie McGrath PNR
Magical things are important to me. Ms. Nutt weaves a story that is full of dreams coming true. Any story that involves fairies is close to my heart.
I could not get enough!
