Overview

Three brand new Regency Romance novellas by Sarah M. Eden, Annette Lyon, and Heather B. Moore:

A MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS by Sarah M. Eden
Matchmaker Adelaide Northrop may be embarking on her greatest challenge yet. Miss Odette Armistead has been dubbed "Princess Pompous" by Society's elite, and Odette's parents are desperate to see her married off to a respectable gentleman. When Adelaide first meets Odette, she is expecting a young lady who fits the pompous description. Instead, Adelaide discovers that Odette is far from conceited, but has chosen to wear a mask in a desperate attempt to hide her love for a gentleman who has been chosen for someone else. It seems that Adelaide has far more than matchmaking to accomplish.

CONFECTIONS AND PRETENSE by Annette Lyon
Anne Preston dreams of opening her own dessert shop some day and saves every spare penny she earns working at Gunter's Tea Shop. She makes ice cream molds to perfection, bakes and decorates cakes, and hopes to one day be an independent shop owner. When an American man orders an ice, Anne is immediately taken with Davis Whitledge, but he is far above her station in life, so she tries to forget about his cordiality. Soon, she finds herself in a dangerous situation when confronted by two troublemakers, and Davis happens to be nearby. He sends the scoundrels on their way, but this only makes Anne more of a target. He doesn't understand London ways, and his generosity has the potential to steal Anne's dreams, or to make them soar.

LITTLE LONDON by Heather B. Moore
Ellen Humphreys has never had a Season, has never danced the waltz, and will likely never do so while confined to watching over her ill mother at their country estate. Therefore, Ellen creates her own Little London, and imagines all the gentleman she'd dance with and all of the friendships she'd have with other young ladies, if only she were allowed to have a Season. When Quinn Edwards, Marquess of Kenworth, comes upon her quite by happenstance while Ellen is imagining herself in a London ballroom, she is mortified about her playacting. But a chain of events is set off from this one meeting that has Ellen questioning if her reputation would ever survive a Season or another encounter with the marquess.

Good light read!

The first story is a bit unique in that Mrs. Northrop is a key figure, but not the heroine. I love how she is able to untangle the problems facing the young lovers and even help additional couples. She reminds me somewhat of Miss Pearl in the Power of the Matchmaker series or even Mary Poppins. 5 stars The second story is my least favorite. The romance feels rushed and the brutality and violence is surprising given the genre and target audience in these collections. Consequently, it makes the ending forced and way too quick for believability. There are also some plot holes that are not resolved - such as how does the character who has just been brutally beaten attempt to run when their feet are tied? 3 stars Little London is my favorite of the three. Although it borders on insta-love, it still feels believable. I absolutely love Robert's character and hope the author considers writing his own story someday. There are some inconsistencies with the use of titles, but I like the characters enough to overlook the author's mistakes. 5 stars Romance - PG, kissing Language - PG / clean Violence - a character is attacked and beaten up in Story 2. Overall rating - 4 stars

I always enjoy Regency novels and these gals don't disappoint. Each story had a unique aspect to it from a matchmaker to Gunter's ice maker to a Cinderella experience. I admire the authors for thinking outside the box. Personally, I would have loved if the second novella by Annette would have been a chapter more. Too often novella's end abruptly and my wish was that these authors would stretch the ending a bit more.

In the newest release of a Timeless Regency Collection, authors Sarah M. Eden, Annette Lyon, and Heather B. Moore share memorable short stories about finding love in Grosvenor Square. Although Adelaide, Anne and Ellen have lived just on the edge of the ton of English society in different circumstances, they suddenly find themselves the center of attention of the ton for less than desirable reasons. From false pretense to unfortunate encounters to an unexpected day dream becoming reality, Adelaide, Anne and Ellen try to make the most of frustrating and unexpected situations. Full of great characters, unique plots, romances, and humor, A Night in Grosvenor Square is a collection of charming tales about life taking unplanned routes to happily ever after. I received a complimentary copy of A Night in Grosvenor Square: Timeless Regency Collection for my candid review.

A Night in Grosvenor Square A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah M. Eden (4 stars) Delightful romance with the twist of a Mary-Poppins-esque matchmaker. Sarah M. Eden is always thinking of fun new twists to help my romance addiction not get too predictable! She has yet to disappoint; I never hesitate to buy a book if its written by Ms. Eden. Confections and Pretense by Annette Lyon (4 stars) Unique situation filled with meaningful encounters. No lords and ladies in this one! An Englishwoman employed at Gunther's (famous ice shop in London) meets an American Businessman. Well-researched, interesting and, dare I say, sweet! Little London by Heather B. Moore (3 1/2 stars) An enjoyable story, some unauthentic situations and language, but Ms. Moore always writes a good tale! A daydreaming miss gets caught by a Marquess who joins in... fun premise! My rating scale: *poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

"A Match for Princess Pompous" - Sarah M. Eden Bath - 1810 Mrs. Adelaide Northrop earns her living by helping to marry off the daughters of the ton. Adelaide has been involved in this endeavor for the last four years since she became a widow. Having succeeded in seeing Miss Charity Goddard betrothed, she is now off to London to help Baron Barrington’s youngest daughter, Odette, find a suitor. She knows it will be a difficult job for the young woman has been nicknamed Princess Pompous. Odette Armistead has a nice dowry but she is pert and says what she thinks. With just six weeks left in the season, Adelaide must find the girl a husband. But Odette is equally determined to decide her own future. Jack Hewitt is attending a ball where Odette and her family are as well. He and she secretly want to marry but know that their parents wouldn’t approve and he does not have a title. However, when Adelaide realizes that they are in love, she tells them what they need to do to find acceptance by their parents. A clever story that is nice and clean. I’m sure readers will enjoy it. "Confections and Pretense” - Annette Lyon London - 1825 Anne Preston works in Gunter’s Tea Shop making ice cream molds. She has been there for 10 years and is quite talented in her craft. Hers is a difficult job and she works a long day. Anne lives in a boarding house and saves every penny she can with hopes of opening her own sweets shop one day. After serving ice cream to an American, she cannot not stop thinking of him. When some days later he rescues her from some young rogues, she learn his name is Davis Whitledge. His sister, Bonnie, had worked herself to death to see that he had a good education. Now, he wants to help other women like Anne to be able to achieve their own dreams. As they get to know one another, they realize a strong attraction. Can he and Anne make a life for themselves to find happiness and love? This is an OK story. I enjoyed reading about the making of the ice cream molds. Of course, it is a clean romance and I know readers will enjoy it. “Little London” - Heather B. Moore Ellen Humphreys has been her mother’s caregiver for many years. Her father prefers to live in London, so Ellen and her mother live in their home, Rosecrest Estate, in the country. Once Ellen discovered a lovely area in the countryside and named it Little London. There she loves to dance pretending she is at a ball. Quinn Edwards, the Marquess of Kenworth, is returning to London to be with his ailing mother. When his horse goes lame, he hears a young woman saying his name. It turns out to be Ellen as she dances and pretends to talk to Quinn. When she notices him watching her, he introduces himself and offers to dance with her. Impulsively, she kisses him and runs home. She hopes to meet him again but knows she will never get to London as her mother insists she stay with her. Soon a letter arrives from Ellen’s aunt insisting that she be allowed to have a season. When she arrives at a dance and sees Quinn, they are delighted to dance together. Will there be a romance between them? Another sweet and clean romance and I enjoyed it.

The overall review is 4.5 Stars A Night in Grosvenor Square: A MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS by Sarah M. Eden – 4.5 stars I really loved Adelaide. It was all kinds of fun reading about her matchmaking and manipulation and the way she worked so hard not just to make a match that would satisfy the parents. The mess that Odette got herself into and the way she was extricated was great. CONFECTIONS AND PRETENSE by Annette Lyon – 3.5 stars I really enjoyed Anne and reading about her making the ices for Gunter’s Tea Shop. I’ve read many other stories from this period that talk about people going there, but never went into the details of what it might have been like in the way this story did. I also liked the fact that Anne and Davis are older than the usual characters from stories written about this era. This story had violence in it, and maybe more detail than should have been there (in my opinion!). It was pretty yucky what happened. Because the rating is about what I like, if the attack had not been described in as much detail, I would have given this story a higher rating. That said, do remember that I am a wimp where this kind of thing is concerned – the violence probably wasn’t more than you would find in a PG or PG-13 movie. LITTLE LONDON by Heather B. Moore – 4 stars I really enjoyed Ellen and how sweet and idealistic she was. The initial meeting was dreamy and oh so sweet. What I didn’t like about this book was Ellen’s mom. I know it is normal for the mean parent, but thought it was over-the-top to have her lock her in her room as she did, and for Ellen’s dad to almost treat it as if it was no big deal. This review was originally posted on AmongTheReads.net I am grateful to Heather B. Moore for giving me a copy of this book. The fact I received this book for free does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

A Night in Grosvenor Square is a collection of three stories. These stories include: A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah M. Eden Confections and Pretense by Annette Lyon Little London by Heather B. Moore I enjoyed every one of these stories. The three authors are among my list of go to authors and it would be hard to pick a favorite of the three. I believe this book is a perfect addition to the wonderful series, Timeless Regency Collection. I highly recommend it and give it 5 stars. I received this book from the authors, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

I mainly read this one because Sarah Eden is one of my all-time favorite authors. She is the standard I judge all regency books by. And she did not disappoint with A Match for Princess Pompous. It reminded me a little of the first book in the Matchmaker series, but this one was better because the matchmaker was more involved in the process. I liked the characters and the twists in the plot. A clean, fun read. Confections and Pretense was unlike anything I've ever read. This was a fun look into the beginnings(?) of ice cream. I also liked the introduction of less strict social laws of mingling among all classes of people as American's returned to England. It seemed to be a period of change. This was a refreshing as the ice cream from Gunter's. The one by Heather Moore was very visually detailed. My only complaint about this one was that some of the language seemed too modern. Some words didn't seem 19th century-ish. All in all, a very satisying read that could be done in one sitting or at three separate times. All were clean and enjoyable. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I love the Timeless Regency Collections! I’m always excited when a new one comes out, but this one had me even more excited than usual. I love all three of these authors! I couldn’t wait to see what they had in store for me! A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah M. Eden – I love Mrs. Northrop! It is fun to watch her in action! I loved her desire to help people find true happiness. And I wanted Jack and Odette to find happiness! They were such great characters! Their devotion to each other was so sweet. I also really liked Terrance. Confections and Pretense by Annette Lyon – This Regency novella was a little different. It was a nice change to have a hard working heroine, who still holds on to her dreams. And Davis, our hero, is American. I really liked both Anne and Davis and their inherent goodness. It was interesting to see some of the differences between what was acceptable in England vs. America, and how that influenced what happened. I loved the ending! Little London by Heather B. Moore – I loved this novella! Ellen is a breath of fresh air. I can just picture her dancing in her meadow. It provided the perfect backdrop for a very romantic meet. I loved the role Quinn’s brother played in everything. And there is the sweetest epilogue!! I received a complimentary copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.
