Four acclaimed authors of Regency historical novels tell the exciting tales of lovers who found their way to Happily-Ever-After amid the art and artifacts. Treasures--and pleasures--await!

In CLAUDIA DAIN's A Chance Encounter - Jamie Caversham is a bastard, quite literally.

Unless a bastard convinces her to run away to Canada first.

***
In DEB MARLOWE's An Unexpected Encounter - Tall, practical girls might not be worth much in a man's world, but Miss Lisbeth Moreton knows she's worth more than the squire's prized heifer. ˇTo change her fate, she's run off to a date with destiny at the British Museum. ˇHer would-be swain never shows, but an unexpected encounter with Lord Cotwell and his lonely ward might lead to altogether new prospects . . . and perhaps to love.

Every so often I enjoy a group of short stories.  They tend to be hit or miss for me, but I enjoyed this one.  I liked the British museum tie in and though all four stories were different, they were all good in their own way.

A very sweet collection of romances all tied together by chance encounters. I loved three out of the four stories

I really loved this anthology, with all four stories tied together by encounters at the British Museum. I appreciated that the stories, though not otherwise connected, were arranged in order of when they occurred. What lovely attention to detail! I also loved that Claudia Dain's was tied to her wonderful Courtesan series and that Deb Marlowe's ties into her new Half Moon House series. They are both great authors. I also loved the stories by Michelle Marcos (whom I had not read before) and Ava Stone (whom I had). Altogether a wonderful collection of novellas and well worth the money and time!
