In the sweet novella TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE by Heather B. Moore, Gwen uses her wedding photography business to keep her life simple and focus on something other than her own broken heart. When Jack, a guy too handsome for his own good, helps her clean up after a photoshoot, then asks her out, she doesn’t know if she can handle dating again. But Jack’s charm wins her over, and she agrees to meet him for dinner. The more she gets to know Jack, the more she likes him, but everything about him seems too good to be true. 

GONE FISHING, a charming novella by Kaylee Baldwin, follows Claire as she tries to convince her dad to leave his start-up company as a boat guide and come back home to Colorado. He’s the only one who can defend Claire against her domineering mother. But when she arrives at the San Diego harbor, she’s met with more than one surprise. First, that her dad is truly living his dream and has never been happier, and second, she’s unexpectedly attracted to his business partner, Miguel.

In THE PIER CHANGES EVERYTHING, an enchanting novella by Annette Lyon, Alexandria has one last task to perform for her late husband, who died much too young: scatter his ashes in the Pacific Ocean. She goes to the Santa Monica Pier to do just that, but her plans get sidetracked after meeting Michael and feeling an immediate connection to him. They grab lunch, and the more time they spend together, the more they discover that they have in common—including past romantic hardships. As the day wears on, Alexandria begins learn that her heart just might be able to find love again.

In Jennifer Moore’s captivating novella A HERO’S SONG, AnneMarie’s career as a romance novelist is skyrocketing and her agent books her on a late night talk show. The host gets her to admit that she was in love once, with a guitar player. Moments after her segment, Lance Holden appears on the same stage, to perform his newest song. Is it a terrible coincidence? AnneMarie hasn’t seen Lance ever since he broke her heart ten years ago, and she has refused to think about him again. Their lives are worlds apart, but as Lance tries to reconcile with AnneMarie, she finds herself taking a second chance. 

In STAY WITH ME, an endearing novella by Shannon Guymon, Jolie moves to L.A. to take on a nanny position for the summer, since apparently having a degree in art doesn’t translate to getting a job as a graphic designer. When Fitz, the family’s chauffeur, picks her up at the airport, she wonders if every man in LA is model-gorgeous. When Jolie meets her two charges, she finds them adorable and needy. But it’s harder to hold onto her job than she thought with a hostile Mrs. James and her spoiled brother. Fitz becomes both the silver lining of her job and the man who just might convince her to stay in L.A.

In the delightful novella, A PLACE TO CALL HOME, by Sarah M. Eden, Ada is the best realtor around. The best. She prides herself in matching each client with the house that will fit all of their needs. She hasn’t failed yet. So when Craig hires her to find him the perfect condo for him and his son, Ada is up for the challenge. What she may not be prepared for is her unforeseen attraction to Craig, her immediate attachment to his nine-year-old son, and her heart telling her that it’s okay to take another chance.

My review: I have a new favorite Timeless Romance Anthology! I LOVED each and every one of the stories in this book. I was amazed to discover that Jennifer Moore is able to write contemporary romance just as well as she writes Regency romance. I love that this book was written by some of my very favorite romance authors. These books are so much fun because you get six cute, clean, well-written novellas in one book. I warn you that you won't want to stop reading when you get to the end of one of them though!

Each one of these books had a great female lead character. They each were set in California and had something to do with the beach, but that's pretty much where the similarities ended. I loved each of the characters for a different reason. I loved Ada because she went out of her way to respect Craig's wishes when it came to his son. Jolie because she was able to love her two charges and fight for them, even though she was working in a hostile environment, and she had planned to leave at the end of the summer. I loved AnneMarie because she's from a small town in Idaho close to where I grew up. She wants to stay out of the spotlight, but risks the spotlight for the love of her life. I loved Alexandria because she gets another chance for a happily ever after, and it's a surprise to her with just who. Claire for wanting to help her dad have a better life, but realizing that his idea of a good life and hers were not as different as she supposed at first. And Gwen for being willing to take a chance on love when she was scared.

Make sure you pick up this fun book, you won't regret it! 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
