  • Great box set

    There is a lot in this Heiress Series combination. Two full novels with epilogues and two novellas. I am new to Pamela Sherwood and will look for other books by this author. I was originally drawn to the book as the first heroines were American, Newport society sisters, looking for matches in England. Reading from the notes by the author she has recently able to regain rights to her first books and is re-releasing as a set. She says she made minimal changes to her first novel and more to the second. 4 stars to "Waltz With a Stranger". American Aurelia (Relia) Newbold is scarred and weakened in a riding accident. She sits in the shadows while her twin Amelia (Amy) is the toast of the ton. A handsome man, James Trelawney, seeks her out and waltzes quietly with her out of view. Almost a year later after time at a spa in France for her health she returns to England to celebrate the engagement of her sister to an an Earl. She is shaken to see it is James the man she has dreamed about seeing again. There is also a mystery to be solved regarding James cousin who dies resulting in James becoming an Earl. Extended epilogues are a bonus. A love triangle doesn't often work but the author succeeds in making me like and root for all of the main characters. 5 stars for "A Scandal in Newport" (a novella). This continues the story of Amelia who is engaged and planning her wedding in America. It includes a mystery of kidnappings and ransom of daughters of the very wealthy. I love Newport and the Gilded Age as the setting. I have seen and toured the mansions (cottages) there. I wish more romances were set in this unique American time period. 3 stars for "A song at Twilight". I love the heroine Sophia Tresilian. She fell in love with older Robin Pendarvis when she was 17 before her first season in London. Sadly Robin has a past that literally shows up on his doorstep that changes any plans she had for their future. Fast forward four years and she is a famous singer, touring the last several years. She re-meets Robin and their passion hasn't changed. I enjoyed the main story and felt for the star crossed lovers wanting them to have their HEA. But the story slowed for me with endless descriptions of rooms, decor, dresses, food. A little of that goes a long way. And there was some unevenness switching from romance to solving a murder. The book was educational on how hard it was to obtain a divorce in the time period. 3 stars for "A wedding In Cornwall" (a novella). I was happy to see the wedding of Robin and Sophia. But much of the novella is about Sophia's brother Sir Harry Tresilian. He is in his 30s and hasn't married. He manages to get his mistress of two years invited to the family festivities. I believe this is setting up another book and series not included in this collection. Overall, a good romance combination. I like when newer releases include any novellas or additional epilogues the author has written since original publication. Thank you to NetGalley and Victory Editing NetGalley Co-op for an ARC ebook in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
