Summer Holiday is the entertaining inaugural release for the Timeless Victorian Collection. What do Tessa, a shop girl, Carina, a privileged girl, and Sarah, a servant girl, have in common? They find themselves unexpectedly on less than ideal summer holidays with unexpected dilemmas to navigate. Award winning authors Nancy Campbell Allen, Sarah M. Eden and Annette Lyon create well written stories with resilient characters that entertain, amuse, and charm. Great characters, unexpected plots and love along the way, Summer Holiday is worth reading. I received a complimentary copy of Summer Holiday: Timeless Victorian Collection for my candid review.
Blind Date Collection is another eclectic, entertaining addition to the popular Timeless Romance Anthology. With the romance novellas covering a variety of time periods from regency to modern, authors Annette Lyon, Sarah M. Eden, Heather B. Moore, Victorine E. Lieske, Rachel Branton, and Sariah Wilson introduce us to six women, six situations, and six unexpected circumstances to navigate love.
I loved how completely unique each story was and I enjoyed reading them all. I thought Blind Spot, the concluding novella quite entertaining. I didn’t know where it was headed at the beginning with the princess obsession but I was pleasantly surprised by the plot. A fun collection to read. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of Blind Date Collection for my candid review.
Road Trip Collection was entertaining to read and I read it in short order. Six contemporary romances novellas share stories about road trips and romance. And that is where the similarities stop. Written by six award winning authors, the variety of characters, plots, and adventures are delightful and full of surprises. Everyone likes a well written story and these authors delivered again.
I enjoyed all the stories, but I loved Antiques Road Trip by Sarah M. Eden that put a creative twist on regency romance novels and reality TV shows. Road Trip Collection is a fun way to take and break and enjoy reading. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of Road Trip Collection: A Timeless Romance Anthology for my candid review.
Mail Order Bride is the newest release in A Timeless Romance Anthology. Authors Stacy Henrie, Kristin Holt, Annette Lyon, Sarah M. Eden, Heather B. Moore, and Sian Ann Bessey have created a captivating and eclectic collection of six historical romance novellas to entertain us.
Focusing on the plight and often flight of mail order brides, these award-winning authors have written stories that both delight and bring to life a historical period where love sometimes comes second to finding a wife. Using creative plots and strong, authentic characters the authors show us a variety of compelling motives behind placing an advertisement for a mail order bride for the men, and for answering a mail order bride advertisement for the women.
While reading these genuine stories, I enjoyed learning about the mail order bride period in US history, and how people found happiness amid unknown outcomes and less than ideal circumstances. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of Mail Order Bride for my candid review.
I loved reading A Midwinter Ball, the recent release of the Timeless Regency Collection which comprises three novellas by Heidi Ashworth, Annette Lyon, and Michele Paige Holmes. With clever plots, genuine characters, and unexpected endings, this collection was fast and fun to read.
Much Ado about Dancing by Heidi Ashworth introduces Mrs. Smith hosting her annual house party to give dancing lessons to eligible and marriageable young women. Miss Analisa Lloyd-Jones has been a returning guest at Mrs. Smith parties for one too many years. When an unexpected male guest arrives at the house party, Analisa finds herself rethinking her marriage expectations. I liked how this plot played out in an unexpected and touching way.
Sweeter than Any Dream by Annette Lyon introduces Olivia, a young woman who had learned to suppress her feelings to avoid confrontations with her domineering mother. With an unexpected visit from her brother and new sister-in-law Emma, Olivia finds that her dreams that helped her deal with her mother finally have a chance to become real experiences. I liked how the siblings relationships evolved in this story to show that even in difficult circumstances, family can make all the difference.
An Invitation to Dance by Michele Paige Holmes was delightful. I loved the characters, especially Lady Ella and Mr. Darling. Michele Paige Holmes has become a favorite author of mine and she did not disappoint in this novella. I love how her stories about seemingly ordinary people are full of unexpected twists of fate and love.
Having read most of the Timeless Regency Collection, I think A Midwinter Ball is my new favorite of the collection. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of A Midwinter Ball for my candid review.
