REVIEW: Autumn Masquerade (Timeless Regency Collection) By Josi S. Kilpack, Donna Hatch and Nancy Campbell Allen

This Regency anthology includes three 100 page romance novellas based around the theme Autumn Masquerade, presented by the publisher of the #1 Amazon bestselling “A Timeless Romance Anthology” series in New Releases for Clean Romance.

Each individual Regency story includes a sweet, unforgettable romance of overcoming obstacles to find and embrace true love and reach for happily ever after. These shorter novels are perfect for a quick afternoon pick me up. My novella, Unmasking the Duke, features Hannah, the younger sister of Alicia in The Stranger She Married. Hannah, as it happens, is much more than meets the eye, and the oh-so-dreamy Duke of Suttenberg soon discovers he has not only met his match, but has found the girl who can save him.

Josi and Nancy’s tales were absolutely wonderful and I wanted to immediately read them a second time.

Timeless Regency Collection: Three Brand New Novellas from Bestselling Regency Romance Authors...

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 fa├žade 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.

This was a different novel as it contained three different stories. 

I rather enjoyed this novel. As most that read my reviews know I am very fascinated by Historical Romances. In this book you get three in one. It is an amazing concept.

The characters were very well written. I couldnt choose a favorite if my life depended on it.

The stories themselves were full of suprize and intrigue.I must say though my favorite story was a merry dance. It just hooked me in like crazy. Lily being torn by the love she bears her cousin who is constantly away while trying to turn away the man her uncle wants her to marry. Yes definitely my favorite of the stories. I think i may have fallen a little for mortimer while reading this however.

If you like Historical Romances this is a must read.

4 stars
