BOOK DESCRIPTION


Three novellas, three times the romance, and three times the love . . . in this brand new Timeless Regency Collection


The Seventh Star Inn, by Sally Britton After years of looking after one another, Susan Baxter and her mother view their neighbors in Totnes as family. When a new landlord inherits the leases on their homes and businesses alike, Susan dreads knowing her world could change at the whim of a stranger. But when she meets Collin Stonecroft and his inquisitive daughter, her feelings shift quickly from cautionary to hopeful. Collin has lived in the confines of London boarding houses all his life, and he’s determined to give his daughter more. They check into the Seventh Star Inn with plans to return to London as soon as possible, but both find Miss Baxter and her local history lessons far too enchanting to leave behind. When Susan learns of Collin’s proposed changes to her beloved neighborhood, will she be able to help him see that some things are perfect the way they are? The Truth about Mr. Blackmore, by Annette Lyon

Leigh’s life at the Old Grey Inn is drudgery broken by flights of fancy thanks in part to novels by Simon Blackmore. When Mattias McGrady comes to the inn for a fortnight, Leigh captures his attention. A relationship develops, and she dreads the end of his stay, which will mean a return to an unhappy life. An urgent letter to Mattias leads to him inviting Leigh to an event that stands to change both of their lives forever. If all goes well, Leigh will have a life of her choosing after all. But half-truths and lies have a way of complicating matters. When their plans go awry, Leigh loses her reputation and Mattias almost surely loses his career. Can either of them find happiness? The Coachman’s Choice, by Deborah M. Hathaway

Ever-reliable Mary Thorne has helped her widowed mother run The Golden Mermaid Inn for years. She spends her days greeting guests, ensuring the inn runs smoothly—and dodging flirtatious remarks from passing coachmen. But she’s far too busy to pay any attention to such men, even the enticingly attractive Mr. Northcott. Known far and wide for his horsemanship, punctuality, and dallying reputation, Robert Northcott relishes his life as a coachman, especially his freedom to flirt with numerous women from inn to inn, all without the messy details of commitment. There’s just one woman who's immune to his charms: the lovely, single landlady of The Golden Mermaid. Robert is determined to win Mary over, just as heartily as she is determined to keep her distance from him. But his carefree life is threatened when his pursual of Mary becomes more than just a game...






MY REVIEW

This collection of Novellas does not disappoint. These are not your traditional Regency stories as the occur amongst the lower classes which adds to their charm and character. These are stories about people that have to work a little bit harder to make things right.


Our heroines are just as determined as those of the upper classes, but have to endure more from those around them.


The Seventh Star Inn by Sally Britton introduces us to a former vicar's daughter, her father had passed away, who with her mother were taken in by the village in an attempt to help them get by. They are succeeding until a new landlord comes to town with ideas that will change things forever. She is contracted to take care of the widowed landlord's daughter while he attends to business. What follows is a lovely story about seeing beyond your own ideas and opening your heart to others.


The Truth about Mr. Blackmore brings a little intrigue as our hero has a secret and our heroine is trying to break free of abusive relatives. She feels trapped in her world and finds freedom with the new guest who desires her company.


The Coachman's Choice is about a girl with big plans to take over her parent's Inn. She doesn't trust the coachman on the route because she has been misled by a coachman before. This story tells a tale of trusting you heart and trusting someone with your heart, which is really difficult for someone determined to stay independent.


The three stories gave me a wonderful escape and much to think about, the stories were satisfying and emotionally fulfilling.


I received an early copy from the publisher and this is my honest review.
