Summer on the seaside . . . a perfect place for romance.
Join us for three novellas in one collection:
The New Countess, by Josi S. Kilpack
Diane knows why the earl asked her to marry him; he needed a mother for his daughter, an heir for his title, and a hostess to assist with his position in Parliament. With two sons of her own, and no security to speak of, she never thought twice about accepting his proposal. Summering at his holiday cottage at the sea was meant to be reward for a busy first year as the new countess, and a time for her to rest before their baby is born. She is expecting lazy days on the beach with the children, simple meals, and keeping her own schedule. When the earl surprises her with a visit, she does her best not to resent the intrusion. When she learns that he came for the sole purpose of being with her and getting to know her better, she realizes that perhaps this marriage can be more than she expected. Is she ready for him to know her and love her and explore this new possibility together? She wants to be, but it is not an easy thing to let go of expectations and open up to an entirely new way of life.
Mishaps and Memories, by Martha Keyes
Judith Jardine’s one chance at a brilliant match is doomed from the start when she is ignored and then mocked by the ton’s most sought-after gentleman. Under a gloomy cloud of failure, Judith is exiled to a seaside cottage to spend the summer helping her sister—and living a life far below the one she experienced for her week in Brighton. When she discovers the man responsible for her misfortune unconscious on the beach, she heeds her better impulses and has him brought to the cottage to be seen to. But James Carlisle has no recollection of who he is, what happened to him, or how he has wronged her, and Judith sees the opportunity to teach him a valuable lesson—unless the deception and her feelings get the best of her first.
Moonlight Summer, by Heather B. Moore. Since 2015, Mirror Press has been presenting the Timeless Regency Romance Collection, a curated anthology of novellas and short stories set in early 19th century England. Featuring bestselling authors from the historical romance genre, the series has hit the USA TODAY bestselling list and charted at #1 at Amazon.com.
Oscar Rosewell’s life is not lacking in many things even though he lives on the fringes of society due to his father’s ruined reputation. He’s sworn off having any personal relationships with ton members—his only interest lies in keeping his business thriving. He’s content with his day-to-day anonymity, and business keeps his heart from getting exposed. It’s safer that way. Until Oscar meets Miss Dorothea Atkinson. A woman capturing his interest is a rare thing, but Miss Atkinson is nearly engaged to a man of her parents’ choosing. Would it be wrong to wish for something to go terribly wrong between the couple? Soon, Oscar learns that wishing can become a reality, but often, the price is an even heavier thing to pay.

A Seaside Summer, by Josi S. Kilpack, Martha Keyes, and Heather B. Moore in this latest installment in the Timeless Regency Collection.
A memorable Regency book with depth and wonderful characterization. I highly recommend this positive inspirational fiction♡
Each of three stories were lovely, taking place on a holiday near the seaside. I enjoyed each sweet tender romance in the latest edition to the Timeless Romance Anthology® collection from Mirror Press.
The book is heartwarming with three dimensional fleshed out characters, that are well developed. All three authors narration captures your attention and pulls You, the reader in. Their very talented ability to write creative short stories is well noted. Short stories can be very difficult to pull of, and in this book all three authors succeeded. The book had me hooked from start to finish, I literally couldn’t put it down. Each plot is so unique and absorbing. I found myself in a constant state of curiosity, and I personally loved how the ending ended with each having a positive outcome.
The is my first read in the book series and I have to say the writing and storylines were delightful and heartwarming. Clean, feel good tales, that made me smile and altered my disposition into of happiness and content after reading each one. I won’t give a detailed review, because it would spoil the enjoyment for other readers.
Just know that this book definitely lived up to its promise and I have already purchased more in this enchanting series.
