A Season in London by Elizabeth Johns, Heather B. Moore, & Rebecca Connolly (Review)

POOR RELATIONS by Elizabeth Johns
As a ‘poor relation,’ Emma Standrich has already pre-empted her dismal Season by applying for a governess post. Her aunt and cousin are kind enough to sponsor her, but in truth, Emma is just waiting for it to all be over. Emma’s grief over the death of her brother while in military service casts a pallor on everything else in her life. When Colonel Shelton, the man who was her brother’s superior, asks her to dance at her first ball, Emma is more surprised than anyone. But she has questions for him, and soon she’s caught up in an intrigue she wasn’t expecting—both of the heart and the mind.

EDWARD & EMILY by Heather B. Moore
As a second son, Edward Blackwood never anticipated becoming heir to his family estate, or the need to find a wife and secure that inheritance. But with the death of his older brother, Edward is thrust into a life he never wanted. When his mother encourages him to be kind to his long-time neighbor Emily Foster, a girl he’d hardly paid attention to while growing up, Edward realizes that returning home might not be such a set-back after all.

A SPORTING SEASON by Rebecca Connolly
Daphne Hutchins is no simpering female who aims for a husband with a fortune. In fact, she’d be more than happy to live her life free of the heartache that men seem to bring. So when she sets out to play the fool in front of the ton during her first Season in order to send all eligible men running, she’s quite unprepared for James Woodbridge. Bored, but with a sense of family duty, James arrives for the Season, anticipating going through the expected motions befitting any gentleman. What he isn’t prepared for is Daphne Hutchins and the way she completely upends his heart.


Poor Relations by Elizabeth Johns
A very interesting and addicting story. I loved getting two romances, wasn't expecting that. Emma was a great main character and Colonel Shelton was a wonderful hero.

  Edward & Emily by Heather B. Moore
A good story, but it did feel somewhat rushed. Still it's a novella, so that can be expected. I loved the romance between Edward and Emily. The last scene was my favorite, seeing what Edward's gift to Emily was.

  A Sporting Season by Rebecca Connolly
I thought Daphne's behavior was funny and very unusual for a lady at the time. Her antics had me chuckling many times, though I did feel badly for her parents. Such a fun read!

 I loved all three of these and really can't pick a favorite out of them, they were all great in their own way. I think if you enjoy clean romances set in this period you'll love this collection.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.
