Here are some reviews from Goodreads:
Kinds Hearts at Christmas is an anthology to benefit HIV and AIDS charities in the UK and US. I don't think I've ever given five stars to an anthology before, but this one deserves every last one of them! Each of the short stories center around an act of kindness, and shows what results from someone going just a bit out of their way. With over 750 pages of marvelous authors, Kind Hearts at Christmas is a truly fantastic holiday treat!
I feel this anthology is a bargain. There are short stories and longer stories. These are some of the well-known authors getting together, providing a wide variety of stories that kept me busy reading. I found stories I normally would not have read, I really enjoyed. This opened up other type stories for me.
These are all great stories. I love that they were all put together in this anthology for this cause.
This is a lovely collection of short stories that made me feel hopeful and happy. The collection is well worth the price and the time to read. Bravo to each of the authors!
This is my favorite type of anthology. I love anthologies. It’s even better when they are in support of charities, especially ones I care so strongly about. Thank you to all the authors and all those who helped bring their stories together here.
The range and quality of the stories in this collection had me chomping at the bit to move to the next and the next and the next.... I expected romance but I got so much more. Some of these stories are more sharing and caring with strangers and those in greater need with maybe a lick of romance thrown in and they were just as satisfying as the romances both sweet and steamy. And all for a great cause. I am so glad I chose this collection😊.
The plots range from work romances to aliens; earthly magic to a bully repenting; a kind trucker who goes out of his way to rescue a child's Christmas; several focusing on helping the downtrodden find some companionship and joy during the holidays; a couple who form a bond at a terminal patient's bedside; a road accident in Wales; angels walking the city streets; and a police chief finding it a bit difficult to fit into village life. The common theme running through it all: helping and being kind to others. Some past school bullying and home child abuse and neglect is included but overall this is an HEA bonanza.
Several favorite authors in this one and a few new ones, but every one of these stories is a winner. There is a wonderful mix of tropes, settings, some with mysterious, haunting elements, some with genuine mystery. I got involved and read these straight through one after the other over a couple of days. I'd suggest treating this like a short story advent calendar and reading one story a day which is what I am about to do in a re-read.
Kind Hearts at Christmas, a MM Romance Charity Anthology was seriously good. It features a variety of author and different troupes. Some stories are longer while most are shorter. Some authors are well known, and some were new to me. I loved that the anthology is for an excellent cause.
I loved this set of MM stories! They cover a wide range of lengths, tropes, and characters, all perfectly set at the holidays AND supporting a great cause. I recognized most of the authors, but it was a fun Christmas surprise to be introduced to some new authors, too. These mostly contemporary romances offer something for everyone.
A wonderful anthology. Lots of excellent and LONG stories, so you could really get into the characters and relationships. There were a couple stories which weren't my cup of tea but most were superb, and at over 750 pages, so very worth it. That the proceeds all go to two AIDS/HIV charities is the icing on the cake.
Firstly the Preface was in itself an acknowledgement of real people in real life crisis and seems to me reason enough for 5 stars for anyone with input into this anthology. This is a eclectic group of short stories with many different sub genres of LGBTQ+ romance writing. Some authors I have read numerous books written by them and others were new to me. I enjoyed this entertaining group of stories immensely. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Proceeds of writing donated to HIV/AIDS charity organizations is noble! This collection of some of the best authors is the cherry on top of some amazing stories! The storylines are sweet and the characters are funny, romantic and hawt! Romance stories that keep us entertained and wrapped up in the best feelings. Fantastic! Well done! Very nice cover art!
This is a wonderful Christmas Anthology. I read stories from authors I have not read before and found some keepers. There a 13 short stories in this anthology with some interesting plots. All of the authors did a great job with character development and pace. A wonderful collection Christmas stories.
This is a great compilation of short Christmas stories that benefit fighting HIV/AIDS. There is something for everyone in here: some angsty, some just sweet, and some a bit paranormal. Some of the stories are by known to me authors and also new to me authors. These are great quick reads for breaks or during lunch at work. I really enjoyed it all and would recommend as a quick holiday read.
There's nothing like a good Christmas story about sharing, caring and giving back, and this anthology is filed with them. This was such a feel good anthology, that I couldn't put it down. I usually don't read anthologies, because the stories aren't usually long enough for me, but I enjoyed this one. These authors knew what they were doing when they put it together. Five stars for sure.
A beautiful sweet cute and adorable Christmas stories by amazing talented authors. These sugary sweet stories have you hooked from beginning to end and keeps you interesting. By the time you have finished you feel heart warming Christmas feelings.
I so enjoy a good boxset and this was perfect. I loved them all and you get a little bit of everything in this set.
This is such a sweet compilation of holiday feel good stories. They all revolve around kindness or acts of kindness. It is a marshmallow and chocolate kind of read that makes you long for this kind of romances. Each story has special characters. I loved them all.
I loved these so much, they were so sweet & full of Christmas spirit! I’m so glad…this was put together for such an awesome cause! The authors are all amazing and done such a wonderful job!
Giving this anthology five stars mostly because I love the premise; stories that all revolve around kindness…at the heart of each story is good people being kind to each other. In this time of great turmoil and strife--who doesn't love that?!
What a wonderful collection of stories to warm the heart. You'll find something for every mood you find yourself in during the holidays.
These authors are some of your favorites, or they will be, after you read these romantic, thought provoking stories set during the holidays.
