This has been one of my favorite collections so far in this romantic anthology series. Each story pulled me in fast and set me on my feet in another time in England long ago where manners were everything and civilized nobility entertained hopes of a love match in a world centered on status, not affection. The Wedding Gift takes the characters from Pride and Prejudice and writes from Elizabeth’s POV journal entries. She is trying to find the perfect wedding gift for Darcy. When she finds the imperfect gift, it leads to dangerous events that threaten her marriage and her reputation. Dream of a Glorious Season follows the life of Beth, who is 19 and has never had a Season yet because her family is waiting for their neighbor (who she has been in love with since she was 8) to marry her older sister, Mary. Her life seems wobbling on heartbreak with dreams that can never come true. I love Eden’s writing. Her words flow gracefully and sketch out multi-dimensional characters I always end up adoring. This short story was no exception.  The Mender delves into the lives of Friends (Puritans) who speak with Thee’s and Thou’s. Thankful Winnings goes to sea with her cousin Loum. When they come across the aftermath of a naval battle, Thankful must help the surgeon on another British vessel, and in the process comes to admire him.   Begin Again is a cute story of a 32 year old spinster who chances upon the love of her life after 15 years without any word from him. She feels she cannot trust her heart to him ever again, and he determines to win it back no matter what. Great writing. The Affair at Wildemoore deals with a middle-aged married couple with teenage daughters. Somewhere along the two decades of living together, their affection has grown cold and stale and they are living separate lives. As a new acquaintance throws herself into their path at the party at Wildemoore, it causes both husband and wife to recall past memories of their romance and wonder if any of those feelings really existed…and whether they can reclaim each other’s hearts again…or if it’s already too late. Loved this romance. The Duke’s Brother is a tale of two quirky characters who don’t fit into the ton, but fit into each other’s heart easily…or maybe not so easily if stubbornness has its way. The heroine loves her insects and snails, and the duke’s brother wants a life away from the ton where he can be himself and care about what really matters…and what really matters is that cute girl hunting snails down in his brother’s garden. *** I was given this collection for free from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Regency historical fiction is probably my favorite era to read.  In my early 20's I fell in love with Jane Austen's stories.  I love that time period in England and reading about the cultural conventions. This collection of Regency stories continues my love for this era.  These stories talk about the social boundaries, the cultural climate, and the romance that develops and rekindles through stolen glances and gentle touches.  Ahh...I really do love these stories.   One of the things I like about the A Timeless Romance Anthologies is that it introduces me to authors I may not otherwise read.  Plus, I know that when I read these collections they will be clean romances with a satisfying conclusion. Warnings: In The Mender there is some description of battle wounds. I would let my 16 year old read this collection of stories.

I initially delayed reading this collection, put off by the Pride and Prejudice spin off, which was surprisingly not that horrible. I might even read Georgiana's Diary because, while diary novels haven't appealed to me since childhood, I find the idea of a romance between Georgiana and Col. Fitzwilliam intriguing. I LOVED the Quaker novella - the whole collection was worth buying for it. Also, liked the story about the 20+ year married couple. Was disappointed by Heather Moore's contribution, which though an interesting story showed a startling lack of Regency knowledge (a duke's brother is a lord, if one's father was a lord his heir would be too, and going out on a veranda was pretty fast), was annoyingly high school (nonsensical misunderstanding originating from a fast flirt), and rather clichee with an opinionated heroine flouting convention. Overall, no story, Moore's included, was terribly anachronistic.

There are 6 short stories in this "All Regency Collection" book. "The Duke's Brother" by Heather Moore was a delightful read! The time period for this short, romantic novella is set in London in 1820s. Mabel goes to London to visit her sister and there meets her sisters brother-in-law Gregory Clark. He appreciates her love for science and insects and doesn't seem appalled at her behavior like her sister and society do. I love that they are hesitate to show any interest in person, so they begin writing letters back and forth. Such a great story! Loved it! I received a copy of this e-book complimentary for social media review. All opinions are my own.

The All Regency Collection introduces readers to six regency novellas, six romances, and six delightful stories written by six different authors that introduce us to characters all yearning for love in unique and compelling circumstances. If you like regency romance, you are in for a delightful treat. Anna Elliot takes us through the previously unknown two weeks before our favorite Jane Austin character Elizabeth Bennett weds Mr. Darcy in The Wedding Gift: A Pride and Prejudice Story. This was an entertaining story fit to be included in upcoming editions of the classic Pride and Prejudice. In a Dream of a Glorious Season, Sarah M. Eden Elizabeth shows readers how goodness and politeness can attract miracles and true love if people have the courage to be themselves, despite difficulties. I particularly enjoyed The Mender by Carla Kelly. Kelly creates a captivating plot around the naval battle that took the life of Admiral Lord Nelson. I loved the poignancy of her characters hardships and how she draws us into them.  In Begin Again, Josi S. Kilpack, introduces us to Regina who lives with her widowed brother. What appears to be happy, content life for Regina quickly shows itself to be a thin veneer that covers a tragically broken heart. I loved the heartbreaking depth of emotion that Kilpack so vividly conveys through Regina and Ross and their contrasting stories. Annette Lyon’s Mrs. Ellen Stanhope is a touching story about why we need love at every stage of life. Finally, The Duke’s Brother by Heather B. Moore is fun, entertaining story about when it is better to disregard polite society and pursue your dreams of true happiness. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary ebook copy of A Timeless Romance Anthology: All Regency Collection for my candid review.

I don't read many Historical Fiction books. Although, I come from a strong English Heritage and should probably read these types more than I do. The All Regency Collection is a great addition to the Romance Anthologies and even though it is not my first choice to read it was a really good one and I loved all 6 of the novellas. I think my favorite one was Begin Again by: Annette Lyon because it was about a Husband and Wife that had put their love for each other on the back burner as life takes over. I believe that we all tend to do that at some point or another in our lives. So I could really relate to it! I also enjoyed The Duke’s Brother by Heather Moore because my husband and I are both a little different from the norm that people expect us to be and I love it! As always, it is always nice to read clean romance by great Authors! Note- I was given this book by Heather B. Moore in exchange for an honest review.
