A Season in London (Timeless Regency Collection #6)
by Elizabeth Johns, Heather B. Moore, and Rebecca Connolly
ebook, 300 pages
Published January 24th 2017 by Mirror Press    

From the publisher of the USA TODAY bestselling & #1 Amazon bestselling Timeless Romance Anthology series in Clean Romance, comes A SEASON IN LONDON.

Three brand new Regency Romance novellas by Elizabeth Johns, Heather B. Moore, and Rebecca Connolly.

POOR RELATIONS by Elizabeth Johns
As a ‘poor relation,’ Emma Standrich has already pre-empted her dismal Season by applying for a governess post. Her aunt and cousin are kind enough to sponsor her, but in truth, Emma is just waiting for it to all be over. Emma’s grief over the death of her brother while in military service casts a pallor on everything else in her life. When Colonel Shelton, the man who was her brother’s superior, asks her to dance at her first ball, Emma is more surprised than anyone. But she has questions for him, and soon she’s caught up in an intrigue she wasn’t expecting—both of the heart and the mind.

EDWARD & EMILY by Heather B. Moore
As a second son, Edward Blackwood never anticipated becoming heir to his family estate, or the need to find a wife and secure that inheritance. But with the death of his older brother, Edward is thrust into a life he never wanted. When his mother encourages him to be kind to his long-time neighbor Emily Foster, a girl he’d hardly paid attention to while growing up, Edward realizes that returning home might not be such a set-back after all.

A SPORTING SEASON by Rebecca Connolly
Daphne Hutchins is no simpering female who aims for a husband with a fortune. In fact, she’d be more than happy to live her life free of the heartache that men seem to bring. So when she sets out to play the fool in front of the ton during her first Season in order to send all eligible men running, she’s quite unprepared for James Woodbridge. Bored, but with a sense of family duty, James arrives for the Season, anticipating going through the expected motions befitting any gentleman. What he isn’t prepared for is Daphne Hutchins and the way she completely upends his heart.

My Review: 5 Stars

I love Regency romance and it seems like a lot of them follow a similar formula. That can't be said for this set! I honestly can't choose a favorite because each story is so unique and brought a breath of fresh air to the genre.

In POOR RELATIONS, Emma is ready to put herself into a role as governess, but finds herself thrust into a mystery surrounding her brother's death instead. She's one determined woman and I really admire her pluck. I wasn't sure about Colonel Shelton at first, but he proves to be dashing military hero. I love the banter and subtle attractions that develop throughout the book and the two-for-one romance is spot on, as the book also follows Emma's cousin's love life.

EDWARD & EMILY stole my heart. My husband and I grew up together, but never associated until we were in our 20s. Edward always had his nose in a book and now that he finds himself set to inherit, he's encouraged to marry. When he sees his long-time neighbor all grown up, his heart is captured. The way this couple falls in love is utterly romantic and so similar to my own courtship. They each have a way with words and I was as eager to read their letters as I'm sure they were. I had a smile on my face throughout this one.

I couldn't stop laughing while reading A SPORTING SEASON! Daphne is determined to do everything she can to deter her parents from marrying her off. Forced to endure a season in London, she has a plan to end up alone. James is bored with society, but feels a duty. He's captivated by Daphne and her plans and can't help but fall for her. This is anything but a traditional story, but was the perfect endcap to the anthology, as it's heartwarming, sweet, and so humorous.

I loved each story and feel that this book was well worth the time I spent reading it. If you like Regency, add this one to your list!

Content: mild romance; the first book had some mild violence; I think there are one or two cuss words.

*I received a complimentary copy, which didn't affect my review in any way. All thoughts are my own.*
