And in a twist of fate, four extraordinary love stories combine over the course of a romantic Valentine's Day in Medieval England. Miles and Shelby find love where they least expect it. Roland learns a painful lesson about finding and losing love. Arianne pays the price for a love so fierce it burns. And for the first and last time, Daniel and Luce will spend a night together like none other. Lauren Kate's Fallen in Love is filled with love stories . . . the ones everyone has been waiting for. 

True love never says goodbye . . .

My Thoughts:

The first story in this takes place in Medival England it follows Miles and Shelby who are looking for Luce to bring her to Daniel.  While there they meet up with Medival Luce who has at this point met Daniel and lost him as she is not the proper lady he could marry but a farmer's daughter.  With the promise of finding Daniel and bringing him to Valentine's Day faire they leave Luce and decide to buy things for Luce and Daniel to help them reconnect with each other.  In the midst of this Shelby and Miles find they are falling in love with each other and buy one another a Valentine's Day token for Shelby it's gloves and for Miles it's his missing Dodgers cap he losses in the beginning of the book.  There they share a special kiss that shows they are on their way towards love.

The next story is about Roland who is parading around England as a knight.  There Roland encounters the girl he loved Rosaline and how he left her when he realized that their love wouldn't work.  I really enjoyed Roland's story about how he loved this girl with his whole being but even that wasn't enough in the end when Cam points out what Roland knows that this love isn't meant to be as Roland is an Angel and Roseline is a girl a human girl and their relationship won't work.  He goes to see Rosaline to see what has become of her to find she is married and expecting and Roland does the only thing he can insure that her husband stays home instead of heading off to war.

The third story is of Arianne still taking place in England in Medival times. Arianna is spending her time milking a cow for a family and spending what time she can with her love Tess.  When Arianna finds out that Lucifer wants Tess back Tess asks Arianne to make a huge sacrifice to give up heaven for hell one decision Arianne can't make.  No matter what the stakes Arianne can't give up Heaven even if she is a fallen angel.  Tess gets enraged by this and does everything she can to convince Arianne that they can be free to be together in Hell.

The Last story is about Luce and Daniel their story takes place in Medival England on St. Valentine's Day.  It takes place during the Valentine's faire and Luce is searching all over for Daniel, even stumbling across Cam at a dance when finally Daniel appears and the two rush off to a secluded area to have their first Valentine's Day together.

I really enjoyed reading the various stories to see some of the history between the Angel's and the ones that they loved.  It was refreshing not just be focused on Daniel and Luce!
