    3 Sweet Regency Romances

    A Merry Dance. By Josi S.Kilpack. ★★★★ Lila is in her usual hidden spot, eavesdropping on her uncle's business meeting. When she hears that he has invited someone to stay that he is hoping will be a match for her. She has to try and put this man off because she is determined to marry her absent cousin. Mortimer is a war veteran who decided it was time to sell out of the army and become an English country gentleman. He is looking for property and a wife. This is an amusing, light hearted sweet romance. If just a little predictable. ********************************* Unmasking The Duke. By Donna Hatch. ★★★★ Miss Hannah Palmer has suffered from sick headaches all her life. This means people have treated her as fragile and delicate. Consequentially she is incredibly shy and a little clumsy. Her sister, who is now a Countess is organizing a masquerade ball for Hannah's eighteenth birthday. With a mask to hide behind she will not disgrace anyone. Bennett has been the Duke of Suttenburg since he was five years old. It has been drummed into him that he must be above reproach and an example of nobility. Very lofty goals for anyone to live up to. At a masquerade ball he can be just a normal man, and maybe find a woman to look behind his title. A sweet romance with characters that are easy to fall in love with. A little predictable, but still a lovely light read. ********************************* What's in a Name. By Nancy Campbell Allen. ★★★★ Penelope Timely has been corresponding under her twin sister's name for months. Her sister was told by their aunt to write to the Duke of Wilmington, but Persephone has her heart set on the local doctor, so she persuaded Penny to take her place. Now the Duke is coming to town for the autumn masquerade ball and the sisters must plot well to get what they want most. Henry the Duke of Wilmington can hardly wait to meet the woman he has been writing to. They have many things in common including a love of fossils. When he is introduced to the twins he knows there is mischief going on. This is a sweet romance. The characters are great fun, except the hateful aunt. A delightful light hearted read.

    Great Collection!! Definitely recommend!

    The collection, in general, is a very delightful read! Each story is a clean romance, with the Masquerade ball a focal point. I would have loved to attend a real Regency Masquerade! The 3 stories have strong female leads and I like that! Also, they are all witty and fun to read. All 3 stories have strong female leads, but they learn things about themselves they did not know, or were unsure of. I had not read anything from Donna Hatch or Nancy Campbell Allen before but they will definitely be on my list for future purchases! I have read a book by Josi S. Kilpack, Lord Fenton's Folly and it was wonderful! See my review here. A MERRY DANCE by Josi S. Kilpack: Young Lila learns of her Uncle trying to match her with the son of a friend when all the while she is pining for her cousin Neville to come home and marry her. She decides she must thwart these men! But how? Simple really! Grab a gossip sheet and see what men want in a woman and just be the opposite. A Merry Dance indeed! Unfortunately, Lila realizes she doesn't like playing this role, it is so far from her true nature and she also finds this gentleman, Mortimer Luthford to be somewhat fascinating. He has traveled extensively and she is full of questions. Loved the secondary characters in this one as well as the H/H! Great writing and I wanted more!! Ms. Kilpack writes strong women and I admire that. I like that Lila learns more than her heart in this novella, she learns that being true to yourself is always best. You can be happy only when you are yourself! UNMASKING THE DUKE by Donna Hatch Hannah Palmer is the quintessential wallflower. Shy beyond measure and not wanting anything different, she lets things be as they are. One person, in particular, forgets he has been introduced to her on several occasions. The Duke of Suttenberg does not pay attention to people beneath his notice. Hannah is just that. She is too young and he has no interest in a fresh from the schoolroom miss. Bennett Arthur Patridge, the fifteenth Duke of Suttenberg, has seen it all when it comes to marriage minded mama's and bored married women and widows. But he is lonely. He sees the love his brother has found but is not sure if that is in it is time to start looking.the cards for him, but he should start looking. A Masquerade seems like the perfect place to meet someone without the pressure of his title. He would like a woman who is witty and kind and not just trying to get a titled rich husband. I really loved this story! I think this is my favorite trope, wallflower vs titled gentleman. I had not read anything by this author before (that I remember, I read a lot so I guess I could have!) But no matter, I will be adding all her books to my TBR pile! I LOVED the writing! I wanted more and that tells me everything I need to know! Hannah learns that not following the ton is not such a bad thing. Individuality is a beautiful trait! WHAT’S IN A NAME by Nancy Campbell Allen Twins! Penelope and Persephone are very different creatures. Persephone is all that is proper and missish. Penelope is adventurous and loves paleontology! Definitely a much more outdoorsy kind of girl. Penny has been corresponding with a gentleman in Persophone's stead after the gentleman's mother initiated the first letter. Persophone didn't find the man interesting as she had another man in her sights and since they never thought they would meet, Penny took on the letter writing. Persephone has a way with getting Penny to do what she wants. The twins parents were gone and so they lived with their aunt on their mother's side. She didn't care for Penny's outdoors activities and put her down as much as she could. Persephone saw this and tried to be a buffer but not very often. The gentleman in question, the Duke of Wilmington, was everything Penny would want in a man and the letters they shared after the first awkward few, were honest and enlightening. Henry was a kind witty man, who had an interest in the types of things Penny liked so it was easy to write to him of her days, and not think bout the actual person on the other end of the post. When it seemed he was coming to see "Persephone" Penny goes into a panic! She is going to have to play act for this man! She hopes he is a fubsy gentleman who will not attract attention or figure out the twins have been trading places. This another new (to me) author, I fond I like the cadence of her writing very much. Not too slow, but not a whirlwind that makes me go back and read a page to catch up. Penny learns that subterfuge and misinformation doesn't fool everyone. She should just be herself! Lovely story!!
