Autumn Masquerade

A review copy was provided

Join three bestselling Regency romance authors, 
Josi S. Kilpack, Donna Hatch, and Nancy Allen, 
for three new Regency romance novellas in 

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 façade to maintain. Regency Romances are so fun to read! They have a lot of stuffiness with the uppityness, which is so fun to read about and they also have quite a bit of humor. Wait until you read some of the things Lila does to put off Mortimer-- But don't be surprised if it is those very things that draw Mortimore's heart even closer to her :) This one is delightful!

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. An adorable story! It is always fun to see the confidence that wearing a mask can bring out--I loved how Hannah threw off all caution and how the men reacted to it--fun scenes! It is also always interesting to understand that even though someone might have an air of confidence--we all have traits that we worry about and even fear if they should ever be discovered by another.

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. LOVED this one! Twin sisters trade places--but can they pull it off? Such fun! See what lengths they will go to to help each other :)
