In five original stories, Jessica Cale, Sherry Ewing, Jude Knight, Amy Quinton, and Caroline Warfield bring you Valentines From Bath
The Master of Ceremonies announces a great ball to be held on Valentine’s Day in the Upper Assembly Rooms of Bath.
Ladies of the highest rank—and some who wish they were—scheme, prepare, and compete to make best use of the opportunity.
Dukes, earls, tradesmen, and the occasional charlatan are alert to the possibilities as the event draws nigh.
But anything can happen in the magic of music and candlelight as couples dance, flirt, and open themselves to romantic possibilities. Problems and conflict may just fade away at a Valentine’s Day Ball.
Beauty and the Bounder, by Jessica Cale. He’s a liar and a fortune-hunter… and exactly what she needs.
Earl Takes a Wife, by Sherry Ewing. It began with a memory, etched in the heart.
The Beast Next Door, by Jude Knight. In all the assemblies and parties, no-one Charis met could ever match the beast next door.
The Umbrella Chronicles: John and Emma’s Story, by Amy Quinton. A serious-minded, scientific man of learning seeks a complex and chaotic practitioner of all things superstitious who will upend his well-ordered life.
Candles in the Dark, by Caroline Warfield. Doug Marsh and his candles bring light to many, none more than Esther. They may light the Assembly Rooms even as his love lights her life.
Regency Novella Collection
This was a nice collection of novella romances about Regency women who are on the sidelines of balls and some have been for years, but are still strong independent heroines and the men who fall for them. The stories all center around a Valentine’s Day Ball held in Bath, England. Some stories and characters I liked better than others. There was plenty steam and sweet romance and some suspenseful and funny moments.
Good collection of authors and stories
Great collection of authors and historical stories. Entertaining and enchanting romance. Fun and interesting characters. Love a good romance with witty banter. Holidays make fun reading. Good read.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
A most excellent historical collection.
I very much enjoyed this novella collection. Jude Knight and Sherry Ewing’s contributions were enjoyable. It was nice to read some new to me authors as well.
