The narrator sounded bored, the stories were poor to average. It was hard work finishing the book, will avoid this narrator in future.
The short stories all feature a prince figure, either royalty or someone who comes to the rescue of the other man. Sex and love ensue. Happily ever after or happily for now are assured. As with any collection by different authors, some stories were very good, others so-so. JL Merrow and Josephine Myles were standouts. In my opinion, the better stories were the ones set in modern times as they require less of a suspension of disbelief and sometimes led with humor. I felt that a few of the stories set in more romantic, "princely" times fell prey to anachronistic language that tore me from the story.
I think I would have enjoyed this more as a novel. The reader killed a lot of the stories for me.
The stories weren't bad. For short stories, they were sweet and entertaining. If you are a reader who dislikes lack of depth or development (as I am), you should probably look for a full novel and avoid these short stories.
