Blog Tour - Autumn Masquerade

Book Summary from Amazon.com: **Amazon Top 100 in Regency Romance** 
**Amazon Top 50 in Victorian Romance** 

From the publisher of the #1 Amazon bestselling A Timeless Romance Anthology series in Clean Romance. 

Join three bestselling Regency romance authors, Josi S. Kilpack, Donna Hatch, and Nancy Allen, for three new Regency romance novellas in AUTUMN MASQUERADE. 

A MERRY DANCE by Josi S. Kilpack. When Lila overhears her uncle talking about a man coming to look for property in the county, she doesn’t think twice, until her uncle says he hopes Lila will find enough interest to marry the man. How can she marry someone named Mortimer Luthford, not to mention that his advanced age of thirty-three, and especially since she’s already in love with her absent cousin Neville? But when Mortimer arrives, Lila has to try every trick known to women to act not interested in the rather fascinating man, which proves a very difficult fa├žade to maintain. 

UNMASKING THE DUKE by Donna Hatch. The last thing Hannah Palmer wants to do is flirt with men in a crowded ballroom, but when her sister throws a Masquerade Ball, Hannah can’t say no to the invitation and takes comfort behind a mask. She dances with a charming masked man, matching him wit for wit. When the glorious evening culminates in a kiss, and the two remove their masks, Hannah is horrified to discover the man she’s been flirting with all night is her most despised neighbor, the Duke of Suttenberg. No matter how charming the duke was at the ball, and how wonderful the kiss, he is the last man she’d ever accept. 

WHAT’S IN A NAME by Nancy Campbell Allen. Penelope Timely has a terrible secret. She’s been writing letters to the Duke of Wilmington, pretending to be her ever-proper twin sister, Persephone. Now, the duke has written that he’ll be coming for the Autumn Masquerade Ball and Festival. Penelope will have to continue the charade while the duke is in town in order to protect her sister. The Duke of Wilmington isn’t fooled for a moment, but instead of confessing that he knows about the deception, he finds himself utterly charmed by Penelope and jumps into the game of deception to see how far the twin sisters will take it.

My review: Um...the if someone asks you if you want to read any Timeless Regency Collection the answer is always yes! I loved all three of these novellas. Each of them made me giggle in a different way. 

Josi Kilpack's A Merry Dance was just amazing! I loved Lila and I laughed out loud at the ways that she was coming up with to try to make it so that Mortimer Luthford didn't fall in love with her. I'm laughing again just thinking about it! I also loved that she is a grown young woman, but that doesn't stop her from hiding in her uncle's office to eavesdrop on all of his conversations. I wonder what would have happened if she had to sneeze?! The plot of this one is cute, you'll love every minute of reading it and will wish for it to be longer than it is!

Donna Hatch's Unmasking the Duke was also great. I loved the shy Hannah, and I loved that the young man that catches her eye at the ball and that she's able to truly relate to ends up being the one young man that she has a huge prejudice for. I love that he cares for her regardless of her prejudice and does everything he can think of to win her over despite that. Loved it!

And last but not least, What's in a Name by Nancy Campbell Allen. I just found out that she's going to be coming out with a Proper Romance regency pretty soon and after reading this one, I know that it will be awesome. I loved Penny Timely's character. She was asked by her sister to correspond with the Duke of Wellington in her twin sister's name, never believing she'd actually meet him one day. When he writes to tell her of his impending arrival, Penny knows there's going to be some crazy fireworks. What I loved most about this one was that Penny thought that she had this huge secret, but the Duke knew as soon as he saw her that she was the one he had corresponded with and he just sat back to watch how everything would turn out. So funny! I laughed out loud at this one too! 

It's nice that these are novellas and you feel like you can finish them in a short amount of time, but I really would love more of the story sometimes! I love that these are all clean, fun romances. These collections are always amazing and this one is no exception. Make sure to grab your copy!

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

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
