"The Ghost of Willow's Past" by M.L. Buchman. In Portland, soldiers Dusty and Amy meet at a public garden where her grandmother's tree of love planted in 1917 was recently cut down.
"Toasted" by Mary Jo Putney. In New York, Rebecca the Hunter wakes up Simon the Guardian because she insists the children need help. Attracted to each other, her being a ghost complicates matters.
"Chains" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. In New York, Roth feels lonely as he prepares to go on stage with his father the ghost nagging him about turning in the unauthorized young girl when his only love Erika comes looking for her.
"Miss Merriweather's Christmas Follies" by Carole Nelson Douglas. Pitt informs Dark Angel singer Adrian that he is a problem dead and alive while Marianne argues he does not belong in hell as his ancestor killed her.
"A Countess for Christmas" by Anthea Lawson. In 1814 Liam writes Cecilia that her brother is healing at his estate following an accident; they continue to exchange correspondence.
The latest Fiction River anthology (see Time Streams) contains two time travel and six ghost stories, but all eight entries sage a strong Christmas romantic theme.
But even readers who don't typically consider romance may really enjoy this collection. If you like tales of the fantastic, well-written stories with gripping characters, you should consider this volume because while the heart of the story is romance, there are ghosts and time travel and all other kinds of good paranormal stuff. And some great writing.
Also, in my opinion, it doesn't need to be Christmas to read a great story set during that time of year. This anthology grabbed me with the very first story and held me to the end.
