Publisher's Summary

A MERRY DANCE by Josi S. Kilpack. When Lila overhears her uncle talking about a man coming to look for property in the county, she doesn't think twice, until her uncle says he hopes Lila will find enough interest to marry the man. How can she marry someone named Mortimer Luthford, not to mention that his advanced age of thirty-three, and especially since she's already in love with her absent cousin Neville? But when Mortimer arrives, Lila has to try every trick known to women to act not interested in the rather fascinating man, which proves a very difficult façade to maintain. UNMASKING THE DUKE by Donna Hatch. The last thing Hannah Palmer wants to do is flirt with men in a crowded ballroom, but when her sister throws a Masquerade Ball, Hannah can't say no to the invitation and takes comfort behind a mask. She dances with a charming masked man, matching him wit for wit. When the glorious evening culminates in a kiss, and the two remove their masks, Hannah is horrified to discover the man she's been flirting with all night is her most despised neighbor, the Duke of Suttenberg. No matter how charming the duke was at the ball, and how wonderful the kiss, he is the last man she'd ever accept. WHAT'S IN A NAME by Nancy Campbell Allen. Penelope Timely has a terrible secret. She's been writing letters to the Duke of Wilmington, pretending to be her ever-proper twin sister, Persephone. Now, the duke has written that he'll be coming for the Autumn Masquerade Ball and Festival. Penelope will have to continue the charade while the duke is in town in order to protect her sister. The Duke of Wilmington isn't fooled for a moment, but instead of confessing that he knows about the deception, he finds himself utterly charmed by Penelope and jumps into the game of deception to see how far the twin sisters will take it.

Very good!

I really enjoyed these stories. I do wish that the last one had an epilogue to tell us the nasty aunt got her comeuppance and also how Persephone's trip went.

Kept Me Wanting More!

A great collection! I enjoyed all three stories though, What's In A Name, was my favorite. The storyline was new and I enjoyed there back and forth letters were very enjoyable to listen to. I have read other regency short collections, and I must say that this is one of those rare one's that I appreciated all stories.

Each one had fun moments that made me laugh, very clean and sweet romances that you wish would one day happen to you. All in all, a very nice read to relax and unwind with.

Checks All The Great Regency Boxes

Although, the stories were predictable, they were not boring and tedious to read. I muchnmore preferred story #3 by Hatch.

Happily Ever After

Three sweet little romances. No drama or real angst, no blush worthy moments. Great little stories that hold your interest. Just a nice happy stress free listen! Likeable characters and great narration, as always, by Ms Zimmerman. Keeping in my library for another listen on a day when I’m desperate for reality to fade away and someone, anyone!, to have a happy ending.

Sweet trio of Regency Romance stories.

I listened to this book after reading quite a difficult one. I needed a bit of fluff to clean my palate. This story was just what I needed. Nothing very deep, nothing to contemplate and nothing I continued thinking about after listening. Just a good listen that took me to a different time.

The stories were all very cute and sweet. Predictable but sweet. The characters and the dialogue were both funny and witty. I laughed-out-loud on a number of occasions.

Very nice book with great narration!

lovely

I enjoyed the 3 stories very much although they were somewhat similar. Though the stories were short the characters still had some depth. The narrators voice was very pleasant and she is a superb voice actress. I hope to hear more books read by her in future.

Short

I should have remembered that these were short novellas so that they would not be able to develop the characters.
