To Kiss A Wallflower: Timeless Regency Collection by Jen Geigle Johnson, Heather B. Moore, and Anneka R. Walker

(Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book:

To Kiss a Wallflower is the nineteenth book in the Timeless Regency Collection, a bestselling anthology series from Mirror Press. The book features three novellas from acclaimed historical romance authors whose stories reveal that eventually, all wallflowers will have their chance at love . . . This is where it begins.

“The Wallflower’s Dance,” by Jen Geigle Johnson

Lottie Hughes likes people, as long as they aren't too close. Does it bother her that no one asks her to dance? Yes, but she's not sure how to drum up dance partners when she has almost no dowry, no title, and freezes up when anyone tries to talk to her. When she suddenly inherits a huge amount and is the new center of attention all over London, her secret dreams might come true but also her worst nightmares. Suddenly everyone wants to talk to her. Men ask her to dance. And she is inundated with interested suitors. She fights to stay close to the few friends she knows are true. One man saw her before her life changed forever. But does she want to accept his help when he, too, might be insincere?

“Letters to a Wallflower,” by Heather B. Moore

Ellen might be beautiful and considered a diamond of the first water by Society, but she is so very tired of the pressure to marry a titled gentleman so that her beauty won’t go to waste. When her cousin Dinah dares Ellen to attend a ball with no frills and to stand with the wallflowers, Ellen takes on the dare. What’s in the wager for her? The prize cuttings of her aunt’s extraordinary roses. But what Ellen isn’t expecting is Lord Ravenshire to engage her in the most interesting conversation. When she confesses to him of her opposition in marrying for a title, he confesses his distaste of the London scene. They strike a bargain together, one which will either push them apart or lead to a future sweeter than either of them could have imagined.

“To Marry a Wallflower,” by Anneka R. Walker

Charlotte Winters is destined to spinsterhood until she turns down an unwanted proposal and everything changes. With gossip rampant, her father attempts to salvage her reputation by betrothing her to another. Soon she is sent off to her aunt’s to meet Lord Templeton, her intended. Anxiety-ridden, Charlotte begs her aunt to let her observe Lord Templeton from afar before their introduction. She never planned to pretend to be her fictional cousin to learn more about him, or to fall in love with Lord Templeton’s friend in the process. Lord Templeton dreads returning to the empty halls of Newcliff Manor. When his father’s old friend, Mr. Winters reaches out for assistance, Lord Templeton finds himself returning home engaged to a woman he has never met. Desperate to learn more about Miss Winters, he befriends her cousin. He wouldn’t have spoken to her, or lied about his identity, if he’d known the quiet woman would sneak into his heart.

my thoughts:

Love, love, love! What a delightful treat! The Timeless Regency Collection has published a wonderful collection of novellas, three to be precise, in this amazing new book: To Kiss A Wallflower. Each story is written by a bestselling author of the historical romance genre and they are: Jen Geigle Johnson, Heather B. Moore, and Anneka R. Walker. How exciting does that sound, right? Believe me, I was thrilled to get my hands on a copy of To Kiss A Wallflower. I couldn't wait to dive right in. So, I grabbed a cuppa, my favorite blanket, and started reading, reading, reading. I didn't put the book down, until I finished all three stories - and they were fantastic!

A book about wallflowers that finally get their chance at love - how could I resist?! The three stories are: The Wallflower's Dance by Jen Geigle Johnson; Letters to a Wallflower by Heather B. Moore; and, To Marry a Wallflower by Anneka R. Walker. And they are fabulous! There are secrets, dares, and mistaken identities. And, the romance will make you swoon. Of course, gossip abounds, hidden agendas are revealed, and family duty rears its ugly head. All in all, To Kiss A Wallflower is fun and engaging book that has superb writing, unique twists and turns, sweet and roguish characters that you will fall in love with, and a wallflower theme that you can relate to. Such a great book!!

I would happily recommend To Kiss A Wallflower to anyone and everyone looking for their next great read - you will LOVE this book to bits! Check it out ASAP!
