  • A Midsummer Ball to remember

    A delightful anthology of Regency romances written by fifteen accomplished authors, I found this book difficult to put down once I started reading it. Many of the plots revolved around reunions between friends as with the opening and closing books and others brought a tear as broken hearts were healed, especially those wounded when separated by war. I particularly enjoyed the story of a little girl who found a friend in the well-trained Fluppy. There were moments of humor as two aristocrats assumed the role of servants, proving that they were fated to meet, and of course the foreign prince who found himself with a different view of what took place below stairs. I have read all the well-written books in this anthology, most of them deserving of five stars. I received this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

  • Delightful

    A Midsummer Night’s Romance One magical masquerade ball, The event of the season. Love is in the air, Fifteen couples’ lives will change As you, the reader, watch. I have only read a few of the stories so far but am enamored and eager to read more. I have decided the BEST way for me to enjoy these stories are to indulge in one at a time over a period of time. Perhaps reading a bit before bed or while soaking decadently in the tub with a tasty beverage. There are authors I have read and know I love and others I am eager to befriend as I read about the couples they have created to be at this enchanted society gathering. I am sure there will be gorgeous costumes, music, dances, food, flirtation and much more as I enjoy pages filled with delightful surprises. After reading of a foreign prince meeting the perfect woman and of a couple given a second chance to find their happily ever after, I am ready read the next story in this anthology when I head upstairs to run the bathwater, climb into the tub, and escape into this collection of delightful stories. Thank you to author Erica Ridley for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

  • A midsummer nights dream

    I’ve just read some of the best stories. Different couples meet at the same masquerade house party. Great romances with fairies and dukes to footman and ladies of means. The awaking of Lady flora- Flora has lost her husband. Little does she know that her and her husbands best friend is in love with her. Now she has to see if she can open her heart again. 5* A match unmasked- Misunderstandings pull apart two old friends that had secretly loved each other since they were children. A mask ball brings them back together. Wonderful story.

  • Great Collection

    This is a great collection of 15 feel-good stories and happily ever afters by 15 awesome authors. They are all connected to the Whitwell masquerade ball. In Erica Ridley’s A Match Unmasked, Kitty Stanley and Nathaniel Baxter will settle the hurt between them (he stood her up at her debut) and have a second chance at love. That is if Nathaniel’s mother has anything to do with it. It may not happen at once, but Nathaniel is determined to apologize and try to start anew. This is a sweet story of forgiveness and moving forward. Anna Harrington’s One Enchanted Evening takes place next door to the Whitwells when a little girl wanders into Mason Granger’s garden to watch the fireworks. Nora follows Emmaline and finds her just in time to see her pet Mason’s dog Brutus and hear her say “Fluppy,” the first word she has spoken in eighteen months. Mason is taken with mother and daughter almost immediately. This kind, caring, and understanding man may be just what is needed to help Emmeline find her voice and bring the light to Nora’s eyes. Truly heartwarming. Jennifer Ashley’s A Kiss for Luck is the story of thrice-widowed Gemma Cooke and confirmed bachelor Lord Guy Lovell. This one is full of humor. After Guy sort of rescues Gemma from the unwanted attention of another man, they somehow become an item. Gemma’s friend, aunt, and stepdaughter pick right up on this and do everything they can to match these two up. There is some courting, a lot of kissing, a bit of rivalry, and a possible duel. Never a dull moment. Fun and romance. In Grace Burrowes’s Love Disguised, Rupert and Mary attend the Whitwell’s party disguised as a footman and a maid. Each of them was supposed to be trying to find and learn a little about the person to whom they are betrothed. They are, unbeknownst to them, doing just that. What will happen when they meet as the Earl of Esterly and Lady Sefton? A happy surprise, a delightful courtship, and happily ever after. Sigh… An invitation to the Whitwell Ball is definitely a good thing.

  • A Dream of a Collection

    There is nothing better than a collection of stories surrounding an event and in this case a masquerade ball. More amazing is the fabulous group of authors that have each written each novella! In A MATCH UNMASKED by Erica Ridley, reunites Nathaniel and Kitty who had always loved each other but been apart for several years. Plans are afoot to reunite these two at the ball and see the joy as they come together. Simply romantic and a wonderful story! UNMASKING THE EARL by Madeline Martin has a matchmaker bringing together two people seeking to find a spouse and have each asked her help. They are brought together and realize they had known each other when children but they have a little journey to find their happy ending! Wonderful as this author always brings me a sigh and smile! Anna Harrington, in ONE ENCHANTED EVENING, does indeed make it the best evening ever for Nora and Mason. With the help of Brutus, a handsome boy of the four legged kind, Nora's daughter Emmeline, who hasn't spoken since a terrible accident, seems to start opening up. Mason helps too with his kind heart and as he spends time with Nora and her daughter he realizes he has been too wrapped up in business and missing life. A very special story that will not soon be forgotten. Trading places takes the stage as Mary McGoldrick's A PRINCE IN THE PANTRY shows how a Prince doesn't want anyone to know who his real identity. He meets a lady, who he thinks is a worker at the masquerade, but she may be more than she appears too! A winding journey to their happy ever after but so sweet at the end! Ella Quinn shows us in A MOONLIGHT KISS, that love is worth waiting for when a couple meet and fall in love at first sight. But it takes a few years to come back together and shows true love never ends. So romantic! In THE AWAKENING OF LADY FLORA by Bronwen Evans, Lady Flora finds herself at the ball and recognizes her deceased husband's best friend James, Earl of Battling. What she doesn't know if James has loved Flora forever and did not pursue her because his best friend had her in his sights. So heartwarming and lovely as these two come together. Gina Conkle brings us romance in UNTIL YOU, when two people come together in a most unexpected way. He needs answers from his past and she needs an answer to her future! They both get their wish and a sigh worthy dance will enchant you! A woman is being forced to marry in SHE WALKS IN SCANDAL by Elizabeth Essex. But she will not give into her father because she is in love with another. A daughter of a Viscount and her fencing instructor find they cannot deny their love. A fun time to their happy ending! LOVE DISGUISED by Grace Burrows tells the story of how those at the ball may appear one to be something they are not. Or could it be the other way around? It is a masquerade ball! A footman saves a maid from being put upon by a bounder and the rest is history. But who are they really? A fun story that will have you smiling! When pursued relentlessly, A KISS FOR LUCK by Jennifer Ashley shows there are good men who will rescue a lovely lady and not expect more. She is a widow with men after her and his is a handsome rake who never thinks he will marry. But you just never know as these two come together! In ONE SIMPLE KISS by Sabrina York, two people are brought back together after years and find that one has to be patient to help another understand what real love can be. Simply wonderful! A disguise can often bring out the fun and in A SEASON OF SCANDAL by Alyssa Alexander, a couple find they both love the Bard. Quoting Shakespeare and romance in the garden is nothing compared to their surprise when they are unmasked! Jade Lee brings us an unexpected romance in HER WILDEST DREAMS, as a future duke tries to discover who his next duchess will be! Will he be able to romance her into taking a chance with him for a future of love? What more would you expect at the ball but LOVERS AND MADMEN by Heather Snow. Two people who had been promised to each other when young, but never marry due to a terrible circumstance, find themselves back together after many years. Will they find that love again or will the past hold them back? A search for a blackmailer in ILL MET BY MOONLIGHT by Eileen Dreyer, a Duke is determined to find her. But what he finds is not what he expected. Can happiness come to this ill tempered but handsome man? All are simply wonderful!
