Timeless Regency Collection: Spring in Hyde Park by Jennifer Moore, G.G. Vandagriff, and Nichole Van

Timeless Regency Collection: Spring in Hyde Park by Jennifer Moore, G.G. Vandagriff, and Nichole Van

Summary from Goodreads:
Join three bestselling Regency Romance authors, Jennifer Moore, G.G. Vandagriff, and Nichole Van, for three new novellas in SPRING IN HYDE PARK:

A HAPPY ACCIDENT by Jennifer Moore. Jonathan Burles' father has just died, making him the new Marquess of Spencer and the most sought after bachelor in London. An unfortunate accident leads to a forced marriage to Maryann Croft, a young woman who possesses no title, and an unexpected secret. With the unstable beginning to their marriage, finding love together seems impossible.

THE DISDAINFUL DUKE by G. G. Vandagriff. Lady Saphronia Huffington has always thought of herself as plain next to the beauty of her sister, Lady Lavinia. So when her sister becomes engaged to Lord Gilbert Caldwell and Saphronia is paired for wedding events with his brother, the granite-faced Duke of Mayfield, who is known to prefer beauties, she sharpens her wit. Thus begins a lengthy sparring contest during which the Duke realizes Saphronia is anything but plain.

AN INVISIBLE HEIRESS by Nichole Van. Miss Belle Heartstone has everything money can buy—houses, servants, carriages, clothing, jewels. A husband, however, is proving much harder to, ehr . . . purchase. Colin Radcliffe, the newly minted Marquess of Blake, is in desperate need of funds—preferably of the wife-free variety. When circumstances draw the two together, Blake might be the only man able to see beyond Belle’s outer fa├žade, and fall in love with the woman inside.

Received an ebook from author in exchange for an honest review

My review:
I love the A Timeless Romance Anthologies. Last year they added Timeless Regency Collection. They include 3 longer novellas all taking place in the Regency Period. This specific collection includes 3 stories which all have Hyde Park as an important part of the story.

I would love to travel to England. And after reading these stories, if I ever get to go, I'm putting Hyde Park on my list of sights to see. 

Hyde Park is a gathering place for the upper crust to see and be seen. However, in 2 of these stories, the main action in Hyde Park takes place with very little to no other people around. I find that interesting. Rather than have it be a big public event in Hyde Park, these incidents are fairly private. The 3 stories include other scenes in Hyde Park as well that are more along the lines of typical scenes in Hyde Park, with pomp and circumstance.

My favorite story of the 3 is the first, A Happy Accident. It tugs at my heartstrings. I definitely am drawn to this kind of story. 

I look forward to reading more of the Timeless Regency Collections. The next one due out is Summer House Party.

Warnings: None

I would let my 18 year old read this collection.
