A Night in Grosvenor Square
Three brand new Regency Romance novellas by Sarah M. Eden, Annette Lyon, and Heather B. MooreA MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS by Sarah M. EdenMatchmaker Adelaide Northrop may be embarking on her greatest challenge yet. Miss Odette Armistead has been dubbed “Princess Pompous” by Society’s elite, and Odette’s parents are desperate to see her married off to a respectable gentleman. When Adelaide first meets Odette, she is expecting a young lady who fits the pompous description. Instead, Adelaide discovers that Odette is far from conceited, but has chosen to wear a mask in a desperate attempt to hide her love for a gentleman who has been chosen for someone else. It seems that Adelaide has far more than matchmaking to accomplish.CONFECTIONS AND PRETENSE by Annette LyonAnne Preston dreams of opening her own dessert shop some day and saves every spare penny she earns working at Gunter’s Tea Shop. She makes ice cream molds to perfection, bakes and decorates cakes, and hopes to one day be an independent shop owner. When an American man orders an ice, Anne is immediately taken with Davis Whitledge, but he is far above her station in life, so she tries to forget about his cordiality. Soon, she finds herself in a dangerous situation when confronted by two troublemakers, and Davis happens to be nearby. He sends the scoundrels on their way, but this only makes Anne more of a target. He doesn’t understand London ways, and his generosity has the potential to steal Anne’s dreams, or to make them soar. LITTLE LONDON by Heather B. MooreEllen Humphreys has never had a Season, has never danced the waltz, and will likely never do so while confined to watching over her ill mother at their country estate. Therefore, Ellen creates her own Little London, and imagines all the gentleman she’d dance with and all of the friendships she’d have with other young ladies, if only she were allowed to have a Season. When Quinn Edwards, the Marquess of Kenworth, comes upon her quite by happenstance while Ellen is imagining herself in a London ballroom, she is mortified about her playacting. But a chain of events is set off from this one meeting that has Ellen questioning if her reputation would ever survive a Season or another encounter with the marquess.Books in the Timeless Regency Collections:AUTUMN MASQUERADEA MIDWINTER BALLSPRING IN HYDE PARKSUMMER HOUSE PARTYA COUNTRY CHRISTMASA SEASON IN LONDONFALLING FOR A DUKEA NIGHT IN GROSVENOR SQUAREROAD TO GRETNA GREENBooks in the Timeless Victorian Collections:SUMMER HOLIDAYA GRAND TOURTHE ORIENT EXPRESS

    LOVED it! This is the latest in the Timeless Regency series. I like that there's only 3 stories so they're longer and the stories all feel complete and not rushed to an ending.A MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS by Sarah M. EdenMiss Odette Armistead is in love with someone, so to fend off unwanted suitors during the Season she puts on airs, etc and earns herself the title Princess Pompous. Much to her dismay her parents have brought in a matchmaker, Adelaide Northrop, to find her a husband by the end o LOVED it! This is the latest in the Timeless Regency series. I like that there's only 3 stories so they're longer and the stories all feel complete and not rushed to an ending.A MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS by Sarah M. EdenMiss Odette Armistead is in love with someone, so to fend off unwanted suitors during the Season she puts on airs, etc and earns herself the title Princess Pompous. Much to her dismay her parents have brought in a matchmaker, Adelaide Northrop, to find her a husband by the end of her season.Young people in love often do silly things that make matters worse and this is a prime example of that. I love Sarah Eden's writing and the characters she creates. I like Miss Northrop and how her trained matchmaking eye figures out who Odette is in love with and then helps to undo the damage Odette and her beloved have done so that they can be together.CONFECTIONS AND PRETENSE by Annette LyonAnne Preston works at Gunter's Tea Shop decorating cakes, making candy, ices, and ice cream molds for those in the upper class. She lives in a boarding house saving all she can so that one day she can open up her own shop. One day David Whitledge, an American businessman, comes in and her world is never the same. David tries to help Anne, but not fully understanding England's strict division of classes unwittingly makes things worse for her. I'm so happy I didn't live in this time in history when classes were so strictly divided and the working class barely got by on their wages, and could be turned out without a reference for inconsequential reasons. Anne is a hard worker who doesn't see her own beauty, but David does. I loved that he tried to help her but knew as I read that it wouldn't turn out good for her. Of course he comes up with a lovely solution to her situation and her dream of owning a sweet shop.LITTLE LONDON by Heather B. MooreEllen Humphreys has never had a Season and thanks to her mother she doesn't think she ever will. Ellen has her own "Little London" on their country estate where she pretends she's at a ball and dancing with handsome young men. Quinn Edwards, the Marquess of Kenworth, comes upon her which leads to an interesting situation(s).I felt so bad for Ellen. Her mother sounds like a hypochondriac who i think might have a mental issue after one particular scene. (lol) Thank goodness for her aunt Prudence who arranges for her to have a Season. I really like Quinn and his brother, but their meddling mother has to go. Thankfully Quinn found his backbone and dealt with her. I love that this story has an epilogue and fast forwards to a year later.This perfectly describes Ellen's mother: "When Ellen had asked, at age eleven, what rakes were, her mother had called for the smelling salts. Ellen was grateful she hadn't asked about debauched women since they didn't sound much better." (LOL)I absolutely loved this book. These are not the typical Regency stories and I like that the authors showed that the men didn't have an easy time of the Season in London any more than the ladies had. They had parents picking out girls for them based on stations in life rather than compatibility. I loved that all the men in the stories didn't care about stations in life but all the couples still got their happy endings.

    Every time I read a new anthology in the Timeless Romance anthologies line I think, "I have a new favorite, they can't get better than this one." Well this one is definitely a new favorite. I have honestly enjoyed every anthology that I have read.

And even better, this collection has all three of the original creators of this line contributing a nov Every time I read a new anthology in the Timeless Romance anthologies line I think, "I have a new favorite, they can't get better than this one." Well this one is definitely a new favorite. I have honestly enjoyed every anthology that I have read. You can't go wrong with great authors coming together to write clean, sweet, witty, swoony and unputdownable stories covering many different topics. And even better, this collection has all three of the original creators of this line contributing a novella. They were fabulous. Once I started I did not want to set this one down. I think I giggled and sighed...well I know I giggled and sighed many times. Hee Hee! All the stories are set in Regency time but let me tell you that they are not at all the traditional regency stories. I loved the originality of these three novellas. The first story alternated between the viewpoint of a matchmaker and one of her "clients." The matchmaker couldn't quite call them clients because she was a respectable woman. But she knew what to look for when making good matches and was very well connected to many members of the Ton. Princess Pompous thinks she knows what's best for her but she has a surprise waiting for her when she realizes that her parents have brought in the matchmaker. Will all her well laid plans be for naught? Or will she outwit the matchmaker and find herself happy and content as her plans come to fruition? I loved Mrs. Northrop's rules and have to say she reminded me a lot of Nanny McPhee, so fun and almost magical feeling. The way she worked her "magic" was so fun to see come about. Oh, I loved it! Another favorite from a favorite author for sure! Definitely 5 stars *****Content: CleanThe second story, Confections and Pretense shows two people from different classes falling in love. I loved how the author shows the difference in class, and the difference of thinking of English versus American during this time period. It was very refreshing. Anne and Davis might be from different classes but have had many similar experiences in life that they are perfect for each other. Now to overcome the trials placed in front of them. Society, money, danger, dreams, an ocean and life. I loved the different secondary characters in this story as well. They were fabulous additions and I loved their support of each other. There is a moment of peril that the author has built up to show the dangers of London life for the lower classes but it was very well written. I really enjoyed seeing the different sides of life. And that happily ever after...happy sigh. The ending was so sweet. If only every girl back in that time period had their own Davis to rescue them. Another 5 star story *****Content: Clean. Moment of peril but nothing overly graphic.And my favorite of them all....Little London. I feel like I'm always fangirling with this author. I just can't help it. Whether it's suspense, historical fiction, romance, whatever genre, I love her writing. I always wonder where authors come up with their stories and how they create their worlds. This is one author I would love to see the workings of her creative mind. Little London was so sweet and full of fabulous romance, swoony moments and just a touch of heartache. I loved the first meeting of Ellen and Lord Edwards. Oh it was so fun. Then that kiss...wow! Then their meeting again and all the dancing and blushing. Oh Lord Edwards was a charmer for sure. The best was the Lady Katherine de'Burgh moment. I could very well imagine that very scene really playing out in drawing rooms all over London back in this time and during the Season. Oh, I couldn't even imagine the horror and heartache brought on by such moments. But Lord Edwards redeems himself and the reader gets a fantastic happily ever after. Another very happy sigh and 5 stars for this book. *****Content: Clean. Swoony kissesIf you're a fan of these anthologies I highly recommend reading this one. If you haven't discovered these anthologies yet and love great clean romance, I highly recommend you go peruse them and pick one that appeals to you. But be warned, once you start you might not be able to stop reading these.I received a copy from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own.Happy Reading!!!

It was a nice change to have a hard working heroine, who still holds on to her dreams. And Davis, our hero, is American. I really liked both Anne and Davis and their inherent goodness. It was interesting to see some of the differences between what was acceptable in England vs. America, and how that influenced what happened. I loved the ending!Little London by Heather B. Moore – I loved this novella! Ellen is a breath of fresh air. I can just picture her dancing in her meadow. It provided the perfect backdrop for a very romantic meet. I loved the role Quinn’s brother played in everything. And there is the sweetest epilogue!!I received a complimentary copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.

Each story was short enough to finish in one sitting, if I was lucky enough to read uninterrupted, yet each story was well fleshed-out.A Match For Princess Pompous by Sarah EdenThis was my favorite story in the collection. Mrs. Adelaide Northrop is widowed and has quite the skill as a matchmaker. Her companionship is requested when the elite need help marrying off their sons or daughters. Miss Odette Armistead has never heard of her until Mrs. Northrop is engaged on her behalf. Odette's parents think her behavior this season has been deplorable, what they don't realize is that Odette was acting a part on purpose. With Mrs. Northrop's skills of observation and wit can she untangle the mess that her charge has made, and give everyone a happily ever after?I loved this story, from Mrs. Northrop's wry observations and humor, the impulsive plans of the young and in love, and the superior way that Mrs. Northrop can manipulate the ton. I hope to see Mrs. Northrop playing puppet-master to more of the English elite!Confections and Pretense by Annette LyonThis was an interesting look into Gunther's. I have read about this iconic location in London before, and fantasized about going there for ices. After reading about the flavors (rose, violet, jasmine, orange blossom, coriander, Parmesan cheese, and artichoke) I might be backpedaling on that fantasy. I think I will keep our modern day ice cream! Anne Preston works at Gunther's making the ices, decorating cakes, and occasionally delivering them. While working she meets an American, Davis Whitledge.I loved the way that Davis was always trying to protect Anne, and I loved her independence, in a time where women were rarely given that opportunity.Little London by Heather B. MooreEllen Humphreys lives in the small village of Harpshire. Her mother is sickly, overly dramatic, and reclusive, this leads to a very sheltered existence for Ellen. Ellen escaped to a meadow each day to dream. One day while imagining a ball, and addressing a fictitious Lord Edwards, Quinn Edwards, who does happen to hold the title Lord, walks by and overhears her. What follows is an adorable and memorable meet-cute.I loved the way that they were both smitten, and the different reactions they each had to their meeting. The journey was rough, but the resolution was sweet. I loved seeing Ellen and Quinn triumph, and imagine them taking London by storm!Content: clean (mild violence, a few kisses)

    3 Great Clean Regency reads. Sarah Eden's was first....I actually saved it for last. She is one of my favorite authors and her short stories are my fav. It was such a fun read. It was like a retelling of Mary Poppins only for regency girls who can't find love. It was great I enjoyed every minute of it:}The 2nd was Annette Lyon Confections and Pretense.

    First, I want to remind you that I don't review a book if I didn't genuinely enjoy it. Here's why - I don't want to spend more time thinking about a book if I didn't like it and so I won't review it. I mean, I read a lot of books and if a book is just ok or if I liked it but didn't finish it wanting to share it, then I usually don't. That said, I review a lot of books. I may be easy to please, but I also really enjoy reading and want others to be able to enjoy reading - and reading a good book!

I may be easy to please, but I also really enjoy reading and want others to be able to enjoy reading - and reading a good book! I really think you'll enjoy this one. I loved it. Seriously.The first novella - "A Match for Princess Pompous" is about a matchmaker up against what may be her greatest challenge yet - a young woman nicknamed "Princess Pompous" by the elite in society. This one made me so happy. It is not surprising to me that it is by Sarah M. Eden. She never disappoints - her writing is always fantastic and this one was no exception. It was so different. and I want to read so many more stories about Mrs. Northrop and her matchmaking experiences. What a breath of fresh air to a reader of *ALL* of the Timeless Collections. Worth the read of the whole book just to read this one story.Though, truth be told, the whole collection is exciting. Annette Lyon is another long time favorite of mine. "Confections and Pretense" was a dream to read. The perfect story for sitting inside on a story day and getting into. The characters were given life through their engaging dialogue and honest introspection and the story flowed so naturally it seemed real. And then "Little London". Oh I want to read this whole collection again just thinking about it! Heather B. Moore's scope of creativity is amazing. I pictured so perfectly the beautiful little clearing that Ellen dances in and that Lord Edwards sees her in. I ached and pined as Ellen was locked in her room and rejoiced when she was set free. I giggled in the ballroom scene when the two finally meet again and . . . well you'll have to read the book for the rest. ;) A great collection - wonderful authors - fun characters who are so full of life.

I found they also "thought" a lot: about the other, about do I really like him/her? Should I marry him/her? etc... Whereas I prefer when books are filled by dialogues between the two main characters, it is more lively, fun, and heart-warming. Overall, a good anthology!*Book received for free and reviewed with honesty*

    I really enjoyed all three of these stories. They're clean, well-written, filled with romance, and during the Regency period of England which is my favorite. And they're all very different from each other so it's not like you're reading the same story again and again. All three authors do an excellent job of weaving historical facts into their stories about girls who are navigating the ton and the meat market that is a Season in Regency England.

I don't often give 5 stars for a review but this was my favorite of all the Timeless Regency Collections I've read so it had to score higher than the rest. I like collection books because I can read a whole story even when I haven't much time and I like the collections with just three stories the best because they have more time to develop than the I had been looking forward to the release of this book so when I was presented with the opportunity to preview it for review I jumped at the chance. I don't often give 5 stars for a review but this was my favorite of all the Timeless Regency Collections I've read so it had to score higher than the rest. I like collection books because I can read a whole story even when I haven't much time and I like the collections with just three stories the best because they have more time to develop than the collections that contain 5 or 6 novellas. A MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS: Ms. Eden has done it again. I loved this story. Think Mary Poppins meets Hello Dolly though Ms. Northrop's manipulations are less chaotic than Dolly's. Ms. Northrop's matchmaking personality is much like Mary Poppins in that she can see into a person to know their truth. She is full of tenderness but a little crisp to the observer. She comes when needed, makes everything right and then leaves as soon as the time is right. And she knows how to handle everything with calm efficiency. Ms. Northrop is only lacking in singing and hopping in and out of chalk pictures so to speak. I enjoyed her character and would love to see her in a series of stories. I also enjoyed the other characters in the story. Princess Pompous is an interesting persona. As soon as I saw the title of the story I was enthralled. This was a most enjoyable read. CONFECTIONS AND PRETENSE: This story is more of an insta-love story but at the same time it isn't. Anne has been dreaming of her own shop and America seems like the ideal place to achieve her dream so when Davis appears before her, she is instantly enthralled because he is an American. And then she can't get him out of her mind and begins imagining all sorts of sagas that make him a hero to her. And for Davis, it isn't exactly love at first sight but he is intrigued and then being put in a position to become her protector - twice- it is only natural that his feelings would be tender toward her. This story had a little more violence in it than one might expect for a sweet romance but that scene was a catalyst for the happy ever after ending. I did cringe a little at each blow though. I loved that money had not gone to Davis' head so to him Anne was not beneath him in station. It was a sweet story. LITTLE LONDON: I always love a Regency book where the female doesn't strictly follow the rules of society, and Ellen doesn't but it isn't necessarily because she rejects the rules. Much of it is because she has spent no time in society to learn the rules, even if she has a general idea. She is forthright and completely herself. Quinn is a little slow on the draw in coming around but that made his brother all the more delightful for helping Quinn to truly see himself. If it had been a full length novel I would have enjoyed getting to know Ellen's aunt better but there wasn't time for that in this length novella. My only complaint is that I'm not sure that I fully bought the idea of both mothers coming round to accepting the marriage so quickly and even more so, to become friends with each other. I would have expected more one-up-manship between the two. Who can be the most ill, or abused or needy... Glad they can be friends though. The book is clean. It has a few kisses, and some violence (against a woman) in the second story. No language problems. Thoroughly enjoyed the read.

    This is a great collection of clean Regency romances. These are three of my favorite authors, and I love their latest novellas!A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah M. EdenOdette has spend her Seasons earning the nickname "Princess Pompous"--because if no one likes her, no one can ask for her hand and her parents can't push her into a marriage she doesn't want.

These are three of my favorite authors, and I love their latest novellas!A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah M. EdenOdette has spend her Seasons earning the nickname "Princess Pompous"--because if no one likes her, no one can ask for her hand and her parents can't push her into a marriage she doesn't want. And if her beloved Jack is successful in dodging Miss Summerfield for the remainder of the Season, then maybe, just maybe, when they return to their country homes, Odette and Jack can convince their parents to allow them to wed. The two receive an unexpected complication, though, when Odette's parents hire Adelaide Northrup--a matchmaker--to find their daughter a match. The idea of a matchmaker was awesome; I don't think I've read another Regency story with that plot line, so it was a fun and unique aspect to the story, and I enjoyed seeing how Mrs. Northrup sorted things out. I sincerely hope we see more of her in future stories, because she was great. I also liked Jack's friend Terrance quite a bit. I love Sarah Eden's stories, and this was no exception.Confections and Pretense by Annette LyonWhile Anne Preston dreams of opening her own shop someday, for now, she works at someone else's shopping, crafting desserts and trying not to let her loneliness tear her apart. When a handsome American visits the shop, she is drawn to him and can't help thinking about him, even though she knows an impoverished old maid like her could never be a match for someone like him. But Davis Whitledge doesn't hold with British class ideals, and the more he sees of Anne, the more he wants to see her.This was so interesting, as the characters weren't the typical ones you see in a Regency romance. While I love traditional Regencies, I also really enjoy seeing what life was like for people besides those in the high Society. Little London by Heather MooreWhen Ellen dances in a meadow near her home, imagining she's at ball in London, she doesn't expect to be seen by anyone. But Quinn Edwards sees her--and dances with her. And when he returns to London, he can't get her out of his thoughts, but he also isn't sure how, as a marquess, he can make a match with the daughter of a country tradesman. This was just a delightful story. Ellen and Quinn were just terrific characters; I loved them. Quinn's brother Robert was pretty great, too. This was sweet and funny and just a great read!I received a complimentary copy of the book. All opinions are my own.

    The overall review is 4.5 StarsA Night in Grosvenor Square:A MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS by Sarah M. Eden – 4.5 starsI really loved Adelaide. It was all kinds of fun reading about her matchmaking and manipulation and the way she worked so hard not just to make a match that would satisfy the parents. The mess that Odette got herself into and the way she was extricated was great.CONFECTIONS AND PRETENSE by Annette Lyon – 3.5 starsI really enjoyed Anne and reading about her making the ices for Gunte The overall review is 4.5 StarsA Night in Grosvenor Square:A MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS by Sarah M. Eden – 4.5 starsI really loved Adelaide. It was all kinds of fun reading about her matchmaking and manipulation and the way she worked so hard not just to make a match that would satisfy the parents. The mess that Odette got herself into and the way she was extricated was great.CONFECTIONS AND PRETENSE by Annette Lyon – 3.5 starsI really enjoyed Anne and reading about her making the ices for Gunter’s Tea Shop. I’ve read many other stories from this period that talk about people going there, but never went into the details of what it might have been like in the way this story did.I also liked the fact that Anne and Davis are older than the usual characters from stories written about this era.This story had violence in it, and maybe more detail than should have been there (in my opinion!). It was pretty yucky what happened. Because the rating is about what I like, if the attack had not been described in as much detail, I would have given this story a higher rating. That said, do remember that I am a wimp where this kind of thing is concerned – the violence probably wasn’t more than you would find in a PG or PG-13 movie.LITTLE LONDON by Heather B. Moore – 4 starsI really enjoyed Ellen and how sweet and idealistic she was. The initial meeting was dreamy and oh so sweet.What I didn’t like about this book was Ellen’s mom. I know it is normal for the mean parent, but thought it was over-the-top to have her lock her in her room as she did, and for Ellen’s dad to almost treat it as if it was no big deal.This review was originally posted on AmongTheReads.netI am grateful to Heather B. Moore for giving me a copy of this book. The fact I received this book for free does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

    Romance, clean, series, but a stand-alone readThis was a fun read! The best part of this series is the novellas are all so unique in the collection. Each author has their own take on the setting. I loved the idea of a matchmaker in Sarah Eden's novella. It is slightly unique to this time period to have that be the crux of the novella's story.

My only complaint here, is the fall happened too fast, but that is often the case with novellas. Anne and Davis, being slightly older characters, had a charming and heartfelt story. Beautiful that Anne's dreams were coming true in a unique way. The historical setting was also fun to read.Ellen and Quinn's story, was interesting and fun to read too. I do think that perhaps the initial 'event' that helped with their attraction for each other was a little precipitous, but again, willing to suspend my disbelief for the story. Loved how she cleaned up, her relationship with her aunt. Lovely fall, and love how it all resolved with the whole family. Overall, more of a 3.5 for me as a reader, but still a fun read, and charming unique characters and settings. I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion in writing this review.

    Sarah Eden delivered another fantastic story that left me needing more of Mrs. Northrop. I’m hoping that was not the last we see of her. It was brilliant to have the story told from all three perspectives. I love how Mrs. Northrop was most concerned about discovering if the two were really in love and a good fit, it was a pleasant change from regency’s conniving matchmaking mothers.

It’s not often we get stories about a working class independent girl and an American who doesn’t realize he’s making matters worse. Annette’s story held elements of fairy-tale dreams and a rich hero, but what I like most was how she dealt with not just differing stations, but the different cultures merging.Heather Moore created in Ellen an adorably relate-able character. It was easy to get lost in her imagination. The first time Ellen and Quinn meet in her meadow is the essence of a meet cute. I loved how Heather tied the whole story up back in their Little London.These three fantastic Authors combined their talents to put together a timeless clean regency that lets you escape back into a time not our own and vicariously enjoy falling in love.https://bookconfessionsblog.wordpress...

    Three really interesting and very original regency romance novellas! I really enjoy reading these women's stories. They're very clever and inventive!The first story was fantastic! It was such fun to read, very romantic and had some very unique perspectives.

Great story, well worth reading!The second story was also unique in that it centers around the life a woman would have if all her family were gone and she had to work to support herself. It's interesting to see how things on that side of life would have been. Toss in an American who doesn't get English culture and a couple of bad guys and it makes a very interesting read. I thought it was fantastic and sweet.The third story was also very fun and different. A young woman who has never left her small village meets up with a dashing Lord in a field near her home. There is dancing, kissing, social intrigue, everything one could want. I thought it was a very enjoyable story to read. Go get the book and check out these cute stories! Check out the other novella collections they have created, while you're at it!

I’ve been a fan of all three authors for a long time and this was a fun collaboration between them.A Match for Princess Pompous had a twist that I didn’t see coming. Odette is working hard to convince everyone that her head is full of air; she has successfully hidden her reasons from everyone, except the matchmaker her parents have hired to ensure she doesn’t ruin her chances of making a match this season. It doesn’t take long for Mrs. Northrop to learn Odette’s true reasons.Confections and Pretense: Anne is adept at molding ice cream into intricate molds. She is surprised when her latest order is from two Americans whom she can’t decide are courting, married, or unattached. One look at Davis leaves her smitten. She tries for days to put him out of her mind, for all she knows he is married, but each time the bell above the door jangles, her heart starts beating wildly in hopes that Davis has come to the shop again.Little London also had a twist I wasn’t expecting. I was laughing with joy as Ellen daydreamed; I was brokenhearted with how cruel her mother was; I was hopeful when her Aunt wanted to come to her rescue. This story was just the icing on the cake.

    I mainly read this one because Sarah Eden is one of my all-time favorite authors. She is the standard I judge all regency books by. And she did not disappoint with A Match for Princess Pompous. It reminded me a little of the first book in the Matchmaker series, but this one was better because the matchmaker was more involved in the process. I liked the characters and the twists in the plot.

A clean, fun read. Confections and Pretense was unlike anything I've ever read. This was a fun look into the beginnings(?) of ice cream. I also liked the introduction of less strict social laws of mingling among all classes of people as American's returned to England. It seemed to be a period of change. This was a refreshing as the ice cream from Gunter's.The one by Heather Moore was very visually detailed. My only complaint about this one was that some of the language seemed too modern. Some words didn't seem 19th century-ish.All in all, a very satisying read that could be done in one sitting or at three separate times. All were clean and enjoyable. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I quite enjoyed this anthology as I always do. Though I can’t say that these are the best ones I’ve ever read (the 2 last stories were a bit rushed in content & more fairytale like in the love at first sight with not much dialog between the characters) for anyone who likes to have a sweet clean read set in the Regency Era then this won’t disappoint.

I would be quite happy to read more stories featuring the remarkable Mrs. Adelaide Northrop. I think the author could definitely make a series out of this - hopefully culminating in Mrs. Northrop finding her own match once again.
