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. Content: Clean Source: I received a complimentary copy from ebooksforreview.com, which did not require a review nor affect it in any way.

Another book from the Timeless Regency Collection! Yay!! I love these collections, and this one did not disappoint! Poor Relations by Elizabeth Johns – 4 stars There was a good amount of suspense and mystery in this novella. I loved Emma’s determination to find out what happened to her brother. Colonel Shelton was such an honorable man. Emma had heard rumors and wasn’t sure what to think of him, but he proved to be the best of men. Edward & Emily by Heather B. Moore – 5 stars I loved the relationship that Edward and Emily shared. There was true friendship between them and it made the romance even better. And there was great romance!! I loved the way they supported each other and wanted to know about the other’s interests. I loved their story! A Sporting Season by Rebecca Connolly – 5 stars I laughed through this whole story! Daphne’s antics were hilarious. I could picture the shocked faces all around her. I loved James! I loved the way he saw through the act to the real person underneath, and was there for her when she needed him. I would love to read more about their life together! I received a complimentary copy of the book. I have given my honest opinion.

A Season in London is a sweet clean set of romance from Johns, Moore and Connolly. The stories shared a similar story line of love found between an unexpected couple set in the London Season. While they are all good, I thought the best was saved for last. Rebecca Connolly captured the time period through a backwards approach of what not to do. Mixed with comedy and lasting love, it was the best of the three.

I get so excited when there's a new Timeless Regency Collection! Thank goodness they release so often ;) I love that they are a bit longer than your average novella so the stories get a good wrap up. This one was fun because two of the authors are new to me. The first story "Poor Relations" by Elizabeth Johns is very plot focused, and although I was interested at first, I didn't form a strong connection to the characters so my attention waned as the mystery became more drawn out. There is a strong Regency setting and I think the story will be enjoyed by many. (3 stars) "Edward & Emily" by Heather B. Moore was amazing and definitely one I'll read again in the future. I loved how Edward and Emily's acquaintance quickly develops into friendship then more over a longer period of time and correspondence. The admiration and encouragement they share for each other's secret hobby creates a bond of understanding. They also join forces to unite star-crossed lovers which gives them more opportunities to be together and their sweet romance was just lovely to read. (5 stars) There are lots of fun scenes in "A Sporting Season" by Rebecca Connolly as Daphne does her best to repel any and all potential suitors. It showed just how desperate she was to avoid marriage and risk having her trust broken again, which stemmed from a heartbreak in her past. Fortunately James sees through her charade and finds her fascinating for it, and withstands her efforts to push him away. He launches a mission of his own, to make Daphne see that there are other desirable options (such as himself) and help her overcome her fears. I loved the way they interacted and that Daphne was able to finally process her hurt in a healing way and come out triumphant. (5 stars) (I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own)

I love the Timeless Romance anthologies. This was a great book, with two authors who were new to me. The stories can get addicting so just be forewarned, if you start reading one you'll want to read them all.

What do a poor relative, a clandestine painter and a young woman desperate to make her first London season her final one have in common? These women are the main characters of the most recent addition to the Timeless Regency Collection. A Season in London by authors Elizabeth Johns, Heather B. Moore and Rebecca Connolly delivers another entertaining collection of novellas focusing on the quintessential London season. Distinctive characters, unexpected plots, and plenty of wit and humor make Emma, Emily and Daphne women who know how to hold their own despite society’s expectations. A charming collection. Heather B. Moore gave me a copy of A Season in London for my candid review.

This is a great collection of clean Regency romances. Poor Relations by Elizabeth Johns Emma Standrich is having a season in London before becoming a governess, as her family is impoverished and needs her income, especially since the death of her brother, who was a soldier. However, when Colonel Colin Shelton, her brother's superior officer, dances with her a ball, her prospects change. While Emma's main goal for her season was to try to find out what really happened with her brother's death, she soon finds herself with an offer of marriage. This was the weakest novella of the three; I just felt like it wasn't as smooth or developed as the other two. While I liked the mystery aspect as Emma tried to figure out the truth behind her brother's death and who she could trust, the romance was good have been developed better; I felt like it didn't really show developing feelings very well and wish there had been more to show how they came to care for each other. Edward & Emily by Heather B. Moore Edward is recently returned home, as his brother has died and he is now the heir to the family estate. His neighbor Emily, whom he knew but pretty much ignored in favor of his books as a child, has recently experienced the death of her father. While Edward returned home reluctantly, and he participates in the social events his mother has planned even more reluctantly, when he becomes reacquainted with Emily, he finds that perhaps London has more to offer than he expected. This was a delightful story. I liked the letters that Emily and Edward exchanged and the humor in them, as well as the growing friendship, trust, and affection they showed. A Sporting Season by Rebecca Connelly Daphne Hutchins absolutely does not want a season in London. Forced by her parents anyway, she is determined to do all that she can--short of completely ruining herself--to make sure she receives no offers. So she wears dresses completely out of style, refuses to dance, and makes impolite conversation, which should ensure an unsuccessful season. But instead, Jamie Woodbridge is completely entranced by her and courts her (without her consent but to her parents' complete delight), even though Daphne tries to push him away. As determined as she is to achieve her goal, Daphne can't help but be drawn to him. This was my favorite of the three novellas. There were laugh-out-loud moments, great banter between Daphne and Jamie, and totally sweet moments as well. Daphne was spunky and determined and well-developed, and Jamie was dreamy. I really, really liked this story. I received a free copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Another enjoyable regency collection. No glaring anachronisms that I can think of though I'm reviewing this a week or two after I read it. Clean and chaste romance. The first novella was a bit silly but sweet. The second was really great! I will definitely be rereading it! The third was a ridiculous and enchanting depiction of the saying "cut your nose off to spite your face." I thought at first it was going to be a very modern cliché of the girl who doesn't want a season, who is superior to all that and only wants a good book and the country. Appealing to our modern superior bookworm outlook, but really, we'd all like to have a London season or we wouldn't be reading this! :) Anyways, this third novella was so charming and amusingly original! Highly recommend this collection!

A Season in London is another wonderful addition to the Timeless Regency Collection. There are three novellas in this installment. Which are: Poor Relations by Elizabeth Johns Edward and Emily by Heather B Moore A Sporting Season by Rebecca Connolly I enjoyed these novellas and loved to read another story by one of my favorite authors, Heather B Moore. The other two authors are new to me and I look forward to more by them in the future. 5 plus stars.

A Season in London: Poor Relations by Elizabeth Johns: A well-written and creative romance. Elements of mystery/treason included. Just when I was getting tired of every heroine marrying a peer of the realm, along comes a refreshing story where love happens on a less-wealthy, more down-to-earth scale. I'll definitely try Elizabeth Johns' full-length novels. Her writing is very good; I felt immersed in the era with no glaringly modern language or situations to pull me out. Edward and Emily by Heather B. Moore Delightful! Two unconventional people find each other and learn to trust one another enough to share their unique interests. I learned something new about the Regency era. I have read Ms. Moore's other novellas in this series and have enjoyed her writing. I'll be trying her full-length novels. A Sporting Season by Rebecca Connolly I read this one twice and it was so unique and fun and enjoyable! I look forward to more from this talented author. I think the sign of a truly talented writer is his/her ability to write humor. Ms. Connolly has that ability and yet she can write touching scenes as well as humorous ones. Another author I've discovered thanks to the Timeless Regency Collections.
