dhejax5 Stars Out Of 5For Jane Austen fansNovember 13, 2017dhejaxQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a wonderful collection of seven Regency era stories of faith, love and overcoming societal expectations. I enjoyed each individual tale some were filled with adventure and intrigue, others lost love found, one with three adorable little matchmakers, all filled with clean historical romance. I was thrilled to read stories from a few of my favorite authors and to to discover a few new ones that I will be adding to my to read authors list. If you are a fan of Jane Austen and Poldark you don't want to miss this book.
Robin Willson5 Stars Out Of 5Sequel please!November 5, 2017Robin WillsonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another collection. I guess this teaches me a lesson after the second collection in a row yes I do like them! And I will continue to request them. As youd expect, these all are set in the 1800s and involve high society, the ton, coming out, in England. Thats where the expected ends all are quite original and interesting. Theres a lot to like an enjoyable read right to the very end. Is there ever a sequel to a romance collection? It might be time!
RosieAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Delightful StoriesNovember 3, 2017RosieAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Regency Brides Collection is, in my opinion, Barbour Publishings best collection to date. I enjoyed every story and fully intend to read this collection again. Ive never really been a fan of English Regency stories, but this collection has changed my mind.
I think that it is hard to reinvent the wheel when it comes to fiction. These werent new themes, but new stories with a slightly different slant to age old themes. Each story contained enough emotional struggles and twists in life events to keep me reading to the happy ending.
This is good, clean, uplifting reading that I highly recommend.

SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Another Winning Novella CollectionOctober 2, 2017SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If youre a fan of Regency stories, this novella collection is sure to have something youll enjoy. Seven stories with characters who are members of the aristocracy, citizens of a small English town, a relative demoted to a servant, and even a highwayman and smuggler. From quickly and forcibly arranged marriages to love at first sight, the authors of Barbour Publishing bring the life and times of Regency England through on the pages.
These Barbour collections are some of my favorites because the novellas are short enough to read in one sitting and Im often introduced to new-to-me authors. Theres just no way to go wrong with these books.

Karen RWAGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A charming collection of seven new novellas!October 1, 2017Karen RWAGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Fans of Jane Austen, Poldark and anything British will want to read this lovely new collection of stories, all set in England from 1807 to 1819, during the Regency period.
The stories all have a charm of their own, some with action and risk, others more gentile and tender, but all quite good. An interesting cast of characters in each of these stories, representing nearly every level of society: musicians, wounded soldiers, highwaymen to noblemen, widows to young debutantes, a vicar's daughter and governess, to gentry. All of them had some inspirational aspect, with themes of faith, grace, redemption and forgiveness, trusting in God and looking to Him for guidance. A few marriage of conveniences for noble purposes, to some second chances at love, all with a tender, clean romance, and some with definite swoonworthy moments.
"I love you, more than life and air." Sigh.
If I must pick a favorite, it would be Michelle Griep's story set in Cornwall. Move over Poldark! Have to admit that all of the wounded gentlemen returning from war earned a soft spot in my heart too, especially the ones in MaryLu Tyndall's and Erica Vetsch's stories.
Recommend for readers who enjoy clean historical romances with faith. Enjoyable reading for any time of the year.
