    Another great Timeless Regency collection!

    Trial of the Heart by Julie Daines (5 stars) Julie Daines is one of the few authors that I will give a 5 star rating to. When I first discovered her, I bought all of her books. The detail, the character development and the natural yet uncontrived-feeling romantic tension are all trademarks of hers. She is also one of those rare authors who can write humor--a true talent, indeed. Trial of the Heart lives up to my high expectations of her writing. Because it's such an intense plot, the humor is kept appropriately gentle, but it's still there. A well-written, well-developed, well-proof-read story. The characters are likeable, the historical facts believable and well-researched, and the descriptions excellent. If a story is written by Julie Daines, I buy it without even bothering to read the reviews. I am that confident in the quality I will get. Lord Edmund's Dilemma by Caroline Warfield (4 stars) Caroline Warfield is a new author for me and I truly enjoyed her writing. I felt that she had done some good research and the social dilemma, a very valid and historically correct one, that the H faced lent authenticity to the romantic tension. I also enjoyed the fact that her characters were developed and believable. I'll be buying more of her books in future. The Fine Art of Kissing in the Park by Jaima Fixsen (4 stars) Another new author who I enjoyed reading. She's very talented at writing descriptions of places. Her heroine acted very aggressively for her position and the era she lived in, I thought. However, it made for a nice romance and was certainly a unique take on the same old regency tale. I wish the author had shared the actual kisses with the reader, she took clean to a new level. I don't want sex in my romances, but am happy with a few toe-curling descriptions of kisses. Other than that, I felt that it was well-written and a very enjoyable read. I'll be buying more of her books. I appreciate these Timeless Regency anthologies. Not only are they are well-edited and proof-read (so valuable in this age of self-published ebooks) but they introduce new authors and I can have a taste of his/her writing without committing to a novel.

    interesting romance

    Trial of the Heart by Julie Daines Marianne Wood has come to Bath in order to testify against the man who killed her family. Harby Northam is the barrister trying to see her attacker, Bartholomew Hayter, hang for his crimes. As Marianne spends time with Mr. Northam, she is drawn to him but can't help feeling that he is too good at reading people and playing the game--which makes her hard to know his heart or her own. And when she realizes that there is something he doesn't wish her to know about him, Marianne doesn't know if she'll ever be able to trust him. This was darker than I was expecting based on all the other Timeless romance books I've read. That said, it's a well-written and interesting story. Seeing the criminal justice process for this time period was really interesting; it's not something I've read much about before, so I appreciated the new details. Lord Edmund's Dilemma by Caroline Warfield Lucy has been sent to Bath to stay with her aunt, and she passes her time helping her aunt and her elderly friends, all of whom are on the fringes of society. She certainly isn't expecting to attract the attention of a gentleman. But Lord Edmund, despite his mother's censure and his family's hopes that he will take a position with an archbishop, is drawn to Lucy's kindness and as he joins her in her volunteer work at a clinic that provides health care for the impoverished, he finds himself wondering if he can defy his family's expectations. This was my favorite of these three novellas. It was very well-written and I got swept up with the characters' emotions, particularly Lucy's as she wondered why Edmund seemed so interested in her one minute and completely disinterested the next. Even knowing why he was acting the way he was, as he was trying to sort out his feelings and what he could do about them, I still empathized with her. Lucy and Edmund her both such good people, kind people, and I loved reading their love story. The Fine Art of Kissing in the Park by Jaima Fixsen Caroline Trenholme is attending her grandmother in Bath when she meets Jack Edwards, a physician recovering from an illness. A doctor is not a good match for a lady with some 20,000 pounds to her name, so Caroline and Jack intend to only have a flirtation--but when their flirtation turns into more, can they find a way to be together? This was a little more risque than other Timeless romances--it was still clean but hinted at affairs and stuff in a more blatant way than the other novellas, which, for me, took a little away from the sweetness of the story. The story was humorous, and I liked how Caroline was a strong-willed protagonist. I received a free copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
