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

A SEASON IN LONDON was another enjoyable novella collection from this line with sweet and romantic stories, this time with an aspect of each story involving a season in London. All three novellas were quite enjoyable, although the last was a favorite. Those who enjoy sweet romance will certainly find some lovely reading here.

POOR RELATIONS by Elizabeth Johns: This was a fun story. I really liked the characters and I liked the intrigue surrounding the heroine's brother. The ending was especially sweet. It could have used just a little more development, but I still liked the story. 3 stars. 

EDWARD & EMILY by Heather B. Moore: I've read a lot of stories from this author and her writing is always well done. That was the same here. This story was cute and I loved the initial surprise Edward has towards Emily, who has quite grown up to be a beauty. I also really liked how the romance develops over time and how well the characters get on together. I did want just a little more something, but otherwise, I enjoyed it. 3.5 stars.

A SPORTING SEASON by Rebecca Connolly: I loved this story! I loved the banter and the back and forth between these characters. I loved how James really has to dig in and hang in there with Daphne and the ensuing entertainment and humor. The dialogue was fabulous and you could feel the sparks and chemistry jump right off the page. This is a new author to me, but I definitely plan on picking up her other books! 5 stars.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I've yet to be disappointed by any of the collections in this line. If you want some short, sweet, and fun novellas that you can read in one sitting, then definitely check these out. The stories were all enjoyable and I'm planning on continuing to read each new addition in the line.
