Three brand new Regency Romance novellas by Julie Daines, Caroline Warfield, and Jaima Fixsen

TRIAL OF THE HEART by Julie Daines
Marianne Wood has been summoned to Bath to testify against the man who killed her family. She dreads coming face to face with the monster of her nightmares, but finds surprising comfort under the care of a charming barrister, Harby Northam. Despite his kindly attentions, Mr. Northam is a shrewd and discerning man of law with an awful secret. Marianne is put to the test as she deals with the evil of her past and her growing affection for the mysterious Mr. Northam.

LORD EDMUND’S DILEMMA by Caroline Warfield
Lucy Ashcroft doesn’t share her stepmother’s belief that she might find a husband during her sojourn in Bath, but she does enjoy a respite from a household full of half-siblings and a younger sister preparing for her London Season, something Lucy can’t even dream about. In Bath, she enjoys the company of the elderly ladies in her aunt’s circle, and happy to be out from under her stepmother’s watchful and speculating eye. But when Lucy meets Lord Edmund Parker, all of her expectations for a quiet, unassuming holiday suddenly change.

Caroline Trenholme is not pleased with Bath, the fussy, antiquated resort of the shabby-genteel. She ought to be in London, finding a man—not here, coddling her irrational grandmother. In the park, she crosses paths (literally—this is Bath, after all) with a nameless, mannerless rogue, intent on stealing a kiss. As if his proposition weren’t insult enough, even her dog seems to like the man better. It’s impossible! Especially once she suspects she might like him too…

    Another Timeless Regency Romance collection – Yay!! I’m always so excited to read these! I have discovered so many great authors through these collections. I add two more to that list with this one.

    Trial of the Heart by Julie Daines – 5 stars

    I loved this story! The romance is sweet, and the suspense is gripping. Marianne is shy and hesitant but extremely brave. Mr. Notham is a very talented barrister. He is confident and sure of himself. He is also very kind and caring. I was so happy with the way things worked out for them! And the proposal made me smile.

    I haven’t read Julie Daines work before. Now I’m excited to read more!

    Lord Edmund’s Dilemma by Caroline Warfield – 5 stars

    This was such a sweet story! Lucy and Edmund are the kindest people! They care about others and want to help those they can. They are kindred spirits and a perfect match! Edmund was so drawn to Lucy and just couldn’t stay away. It was so cute! I could feel Edmund’s struggle as he fought between his family’s expectations and his dreams. It was great to watch him decide what he wanted to do, and the role Lucy played in that.

    Caroline Warfield is also a new author to me. I will be reading more of her work!

    The Art of Kissing in the Park by Jaima Fixsen – 4 stars

    I enjoyed this story! I loved the way Caroline and Jack met. Score one for Caroline! 🙂 Her dog, Ormonde’s role in the story was very fun. Grandmama was a riot! She shocked Caroline, but in the end helped her have the courage to follow her heart.

    This novella contains some innuendo, and Grandmama expresses her opinion that dalliances for widows are acceptable, and implies affairs are too.

    I received a free copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.

    Rounding up from 2.5 stars. This is the first Timeless collection that I haven’t really loved that much. I was quite disappointed in it. It is too bad that it didn’t suit my taste because I was rather looking forward to stories being in Bath instead of London.

    The first, Trial of the Heart by Julie Daines, was more of a drama than a romance and I never really felt the romance come to life even at the end. I’ve read a number of her other works and liked them much better.

    The second, Lord Edmund’s Dilemma by Caroline Warfield, was an okay story but had some language including Deity and descriptive passionate kisses. I tired of the moodiness of both the main characters but did appreciate Edmund’s willingness to walk away from his family’s demands to the career and woman of his choice.

    The third, The Fine Art of Kissing in the Park by Jaima Fixsen, had an interesting premise but didn’t do it for me either. It included Deity language and innuendo and making out in the woods. It wasn’t descriptive enough to tell us what happened but afterward talked about the disarray of her dress and hair making her have to hide from people who happen upon them and makes reference to the “bruise” on his neck he has to hide.

    In a nutshell, I wanted to like this book far more than I actually did.

    Sex: innuendo, passionate kisses, make out sessions
    Language: some, included Deity
    Violence: flashback references to rape and the family’s murder. Attempted murder, emotional torture, violent but deserved death
