Eight authors coming together and providing short stories for an anthology. Eight short stories overflowing with romance. The Gift of Love is an anthology of eight romances written to support a charity.

It had been five years since the day Jack Burke had lost his wife, but given his beautiful, perfect daughter. The premature birth had left Wendy with learning disabilities, so he had hired Briana to help her. He had known for a long time that Bri was perfect for Wendy. But he needed to live again, and Jack had decided she would be perfect for him as well.

He had decided to offer marriage to Briana. It was an ideal relationship. It would be very difficult to find anyone who would be better with Wendy, and he respected Briana. She was attractive and intelligent, but she was a bit younger than himself. It would be very logical. He never anticipated Briana's non-logic influenced based answer.

For the Love of Wendy was a touching story of healing and love. Jack's world had revolved around Wendy since the tragic death of his wife. Briana had been hired to help Wendy, but Jack never realized before how much she had helped him. Briana simply was the perfect heroine for Jack.
