¿A Proper Englishwoman¿ by Eloisa James. In 1817, the Ton enjoys the scandalous behavior of Kerr rumored to have been seen about town with a Frenchwoman. That is the Ton minus Kerr¿s fiancée Emma who decides if Franco amour is what her wandering future spouse desires so be it. --- ¿The Vicar¿s Widow¿ by Julia London. In 1816 Darien wildly kisses Kate, the Vicar¿s wife, until she sadly walks away. Three years later, he is the toast of the Ton and she is a widow that he still desires. However, Emily wants Darien so she spreads rumors to eliminate her rival by turning the Vicar¿s Widow into the TALK OF THE TON. --- ¿Clearly a Couple¿ by Rebecca Hagan Lee. Free Fellows League agent Jonathan escort India, just freed from a harem imprisonment, to her family. The Ton blames India for her captivity though she was an innocent victim and assumes he has gotten his way with the ¿loose¿ woman. Instead Jonathan has fallen in love with India. --- ¿Miss Jenny Alt¿s First Kiss¿ by Jacqueline Navin. Everyone knows that Jenny, her aunt¿s companion, is on the shelf. Everyone that is except Miles who seeks a bride and based on their first kiss knows who he wants as his permanent lady. --- The four tales are well written especially the Ton exchanging malicious gossip that leaves a reader feeling like a Peeping Thomasina. However, the lead couples fall in love too fast as the novella format somewhat shortchanges the romances. Still these are four fine Regencies and fans will appreciate the titillating tremors of Polite Society causing a scandal even when unwarranted--- Harriet Klausner

I might have given this book 4 stars, because I really enjoyed 3 of the 4 stories, but the 3rd story was just awful. To be completely honest it was so bad I couldn't even get through the 100 or so pages that it was.The first story was of a couple who had been betrothed as children and the guy doesn't want to marry her so he keeps waiting and waiting in hopes she calls it off. She then finds out about some of his exploits about town and decides to get her revenge on him.The second story is about the widow of a vicar who gets rumors spread about her by a snotty girl who wants the man who is in love with the widow to propose to her.I actually don't know what the 3rd story is about because I couldn't get far enough into it to get the plot.The final story is about a wallflower who has had rumors spread about her for years, but when a new Earl comes to town the rumors go too far.

I love historical romance, but i am a bit disappointed with this collection of novellas. They were all quite predictable and held no surprises. I was especially disappointed with "Clearly a Couple". The author has a series about the Free Fellows League", and each member of the League got their own novel, with the exception of Lord Barclay. The story started out promising, leading the reader to believe that there would be a good secondary story of League work (spying, smuggling, and working to defeat Bonaparte) as well as the tale of romance as yet another Free Fellow realized that he would rather be wed than to remain a "free" Free Fellow. But the story quickly collapsed due to the fact that given the limited pages of a novella, it couldn't sustain a secondary plot. I felt bad for Lord Barclay because compared to the other characters in the series, his story was a rip off.

Talk of the Ton brings together the most wonderful writers of the Romantic genre! These stories are interesting, fun, and give their female characters an inner strength not often given to women.
