What do a rakish lord, an embittered Marquess, and the most powerful Earl in London have in common?

They will all fall madly in love with three heiresses, finding that happily ever after does exist…

Her first season and her first kiss…

Amy Ott is about to encounter her first season. Knowing nothing about the workings of corsets and country dances, she’s looking for any help she can find…even when it comes from the most unlikely source…

London’s infamous rogue – an older Duke. The Duke of Wardington.

This catches the attention from the most rakish Lord in all of London. Lord Nathaniel Downton knows what he wants. Amy Ott.

When Nathaniel’s pursuits meet the walls of Amy’s strength, the young lord is ready to jump those blindly…even at the expense of reaching something he has been avoiding – his innermost fear. True love.

But once Amy’s dark secrets are out, will the fall have been worth it?

Can love forgive all things?

Miss Catherine Croftman is done with the Marquess of Clariant! After the publically broken engagement of the century, she has her sights set on finding someone new…

Herself.

Andrew Dawnton is the Marquess o Clariant, the future Duke of Wardington, and he is madly in love with Catherine…He made her a promise of marriage in their youth, but Catherine’s betrayal prevents the marquess from wanting anything to do with her afterward.

He’s haunted by a past that includes death and outage and trusting Catherine again would be a fool’s move.

Is Catherine truly ready to move on?

Will Andrew learn to forgive and keep his word?

Can one ever truly love her enemy?

The night that William, The Earl of Cartridge, was struck over the head changed him forever…

He’s been knocked out by a beautiful thief and plans to seek justice for this crime.

Jane Croftman’s family is wealthy beyond reason, but the land gentry’s daughter is willing to do whatever it takes to protect those she loves…even if that means stealing from members of high society or knocking out an earl.

Anything for peace.

When William’s revenge turns into hot kisses and help, Jane tries to refuse them both.

Will William find the key to Jane’s freedom before it’s too late? Will Jane learn to trust William with her life and possibly even her heart? (Goodreads)

First sentences

Duke Wardington laughed again and when he sobered, his face transformed into something…dark. “Oh, I do like you, Miss Ott.”

My thoughts

When I had borrowed this book from Kindle unlimited I hadn’t realised that it was 3 stories into 1 book.

For te first story it was between Nathaniel and Amy. I felt that this was a little light on the romance part. As much as I liked Nathaniel, but I felt that he had never loved Amy, he married her because he wanted no one else to have her rather than out of love. I wasn’t the hugest fan of this story.

The second story was between Catherine and Andrew. I felt that this story was the best out of the 3. There was character development and background to the characters. I felt that the story was more fleshed out and I could enjoy it more.

The third story was between the Lord Cartridge and Jane. I felt that this last story was too rushed, and I hadn’t gotten to really know the characters at all. And the subplot of the blackmailing of Jane wasn’t well thought out and was too rushed. Didn’t really add any value to the story. The collection is as it says, a light collection of regency stories full of beautiful heroes. I however found that some of the characters were too one-dimensional. But I gotta love papa Wardington and his fabulous match-making abilities.

XOXO
