Book Review: Spring in Hyde Park

Spring in Hyde Park
Goodreads Summary
From the publisher of the #1 Amazon bestselling A Timeless Romance Anthology series in Clean Romance.

Join three bestselling Regency Romance authors, Jennifer Moore, G.G. Vandagriff, and Nichole Van, for three new novellas in SPRING IN HYDE PARK:

A HAPPY ACCIDENT by Jennifer Moore. Jonathan Burles father has just died, making him the new Marquess of Spencer and the most sought after bachelor in London. An unfortunate accident leads to a forced marriage to Maryann Croft, a young woman who possesses no title, and an unexpected secret. With the unstable beginning to their marriage, finding love together seems impossible.

THE DISDAINFUL DUKE by G. G. Vandagriff. Lady Saphronia Huffington has always thought of herself as plain next to the beauty of her sister, Lady Lavinia. So when her sister becomes engaged to Lord Gilbert Caldwell and Saphronia is paired for wedding events with his brother, the granite-faced Duke of Mayfield, who is known to prefer beauties, she sharpens her wit. Thus begins a lengthy sparring contest during which the Duke realizes Saphronia is anything but plain.

AN INVISIBLE HEIRESS by Nichole Van. Miss Belle Heartstone has everything money can buy—houses, servants, carriages, clothing, jewels. A husband, however, is proving much harder to, ehr . . . purchase. Colin Radcliffe, the newly minted Marquess of Blake, is in desperate need of funds—preferably of the wife-free variety. When circumstances draw the two together, Blake might be the only man able to see beyond the Belle’s outer fa├žade, and fall in love with the woman inside.

This was such an enjoyable read! The Timeless Regency collection always makes me so happy. This collection had three novellas, and, I am happy to say all three of them were 5-star reads! I never wanted theses stories to end. 

A HAPPY ACCIDENT was excellent, but if I had to choose, this was my least favorite novella, but I still really liked it. It was just missing a certain je ne sais quoi. This story has the commonplace theme in Regency of misunderstandings, but everything is resolved in the end. 

THE DISDAINFUL DUKE was probably my favorite of the novellas, and I wanted so badly for it to be a full length novel. There is character development and it seemed like the story kept a good pace.

AN INVISIBLE HEIRESS was a great story with the sweetest friendship. Belle was such an interesting character, and her emotion was written so well it felt like I was her. The ending was so sweet I'm surprised I didn't get a cavity ;). 
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
