“Top Pick!” “This anthology is what holiday romance is all about. I can't remember the last book I found so delightful and enjoyable.” –NIGHT OWL REVIEWS

Six Award-Winning Authors have contributed brand new stories to A Timeless Romance Anthology: Winter Collection. A collection unlike any other, readers will love this compilation of six sweet historical romance novellas, set in varying eras, yet all with one thing in common: Romance.

The Road to Cavan Town by Sarah M. Eden, set in 1864 Ireland, combines Eden’s sense of humor with her signature sweet romance. Alice Wheatley walks each weekend into town, accompanied by Isaac Dancy. And while Alice finds herself falling in love with the gentleman, unfortunately he has his eyes set on the belle of the town, Miss Sophia Kilchrest. Alice must find a way to turn Isaac’s eyes toward her.

Regency author Heidi Ashworth’s delightful story, It Happened Twelfth Night, set in England 1812, follows Luisa Darlington who discovers the man of her dreams, Percy Brooksby, isn’t in love with her as much as she thought he was. When Percy’s friend, the mysterious foreigner, Mr. Flynn, visits for the twelfth night holiday, he promptly sweeps Luisa off her feet, quite literally. Luisa is left catching her breath in more ways than one.

An Unexpected Proposal by Annette Lyon is a captivating romantic novella, set in remote Wood Camp, the snowy canyon of Logan, Utah, 1880. When Caroline Simpson is forced to thwart the aggressive advances of Mr. Butch Larson, she discovers that her long-time friend, James, has genuine affection for her. But as stubborn as Caroline is, she minimizes the feelings he’s awakened in her, and it takes almost losing James to admit her true feelings for him.

In Joyce DiPastena’s charming medieval story, Caroles on the Green, we enter England of 1151, in which Lady Isabel has a dilemma. She promises herself that she’ll marry the man who sent a ring hidden in her pastry since the man she truly loves, Sir Lucian de Warrene, has proved to be impossible and exasperating. To forget him, Isabel sets her eyes on other eligible men, only to face another confrontation with Lucian—who isn’t about to back off and leave her to her newest plot.

Donna Hatch’s enchanting novella, A Winter’s Knight, begins when Clarissa Fairchild’s coach just happens to break down in front of the most forbidding estate in the county, that of Wyckburg Castle, a place where young brides have been murdered for generations by their husbands. Clarissa is horrified yet curious all in the same breath. When she meets widower Christopher de Champs, Earl of Wyckburg, she must decide if she should flee or uncover the greatest secret in the county about her handsome rescuer.

In Heather B. Moore’s exciting turn-of-the-century story, A Fortunate Exile, Lila Townsend finds herself the victim of a broken heart—broken by the most notorious bachelor in 1901 New York City. If that isn’t bad enough, her father sends her to Aunt Eugenia’s remote farm where Lila must wait for her father’s anger to subside and the gossip columns to find new fodder. When Lila meets her aunt’s boarder, Peter Weathers, she discovers a man who isn’t afraid to stand up to her formidable family and take a chance on a woman with a sullied reputation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast pass October 7, 2012
By Dex
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved getting to read the six short clean romances in this anthology. It is a format that works well for a busy mom like myself. I could easily start and finish a story between carpools and laundry without having to go back and figure out where I was. Typically I dread getting close to the end of a story, knowing that it will be a while before I find another book I enjoy so much. This felt a bit like a fast pass at Disneyland. As soon as I was done with one there was another ready for me to read no waiting. Some of my favorite authors contributed and it was nice to have these short stories to tied me over until their next books come out. I definitely had favorites out of the six stories but all were enjoyable. Only negative for me is that I prefer real books to ebooks. Old fashioned I guess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance, Romance, Romance October 11, 2012
By Austen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a delightful collection of romance stories that you would feel comfortable letting your daughters read. These authors write beautiful stories that are romantic without being naughty. I hadn't previously read anything by any of the authors except for Heidi Ashworth and I love her books. Her contribution to this collection, called It Happened Twelfth Night, is true to her Regency style and I found myself wanting it to be longer! The other authors have found a new reader as well. I think the best thing about these short story books is that you get to read and discover authors you may never have read otherwise. These are all award winning authors so the quality of writing is excellent. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! October 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
So many characters, so many unique stories! And yet they all had one thing in common. Love: powerful, beautiful, illusive, unrequited, and forever sought after. Throughout the course of these six beautiful stories, my heart raced as each new romance was introduced. Whose heart wouldn't suffer at the pains of lost love? Or watching your best friend love someone undeserving? The betrayal of innocence resonated with me the most, and the hope that sprung from "A Fortunate Exile." I'm still sighing. Ahhhhhh. My heart has a soft spot for all things romantic, and this collection did not disappoint. It lives up to its name and then some. I found that I enjoyed it even more the second time through! Loved the strong, yet tender side of the female protagonists, and the complex men that they fell in love with! Bravo ladies! Bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection November 8, 2012
By Alisa H
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! Great way to get several great romances by several great authors for one low price! Usually, when I read a short story I feel like I didn't even get to know the characters very well! I did not feel that way with any of these stories -- they were all well done!

"The Road to Cavan Town" - by Sarah M. Eden -- (Ireland 1864) -- Alice Wheatley meets Isaac Dancy as they walk the dozen miles to and from Cavan every weekend. She is going home from her weekday job; he is going to court the wealthy and beautiful Miss Sophia Kilchrest. As they walk this road together every weekend for 2 years they have developed a solid friendship -- they share hopes, dreams, fears, etc with each other. Alice is smitten by Isaac and keeps hoping he will notice what a great couple they make. As Isaac is becoming a favorite of Miss Sophia's, Alice can no longer be around him as her heart is breaking. It has been Isaac's plan for so long to marry Miss Sophia that he is surprised at how much he misses being with Alice...

"It Happened Twelfth Night" - by Heidi Ashworth -- Luisa (daughter of the keeper at the abbey gate) and Percy (son of a baronet) are in love! They make plans to meet as soon as Percy returns from a trip abroad with his parents. While he is gone, Luisa's best friend scandalously elopes to Gretna with her dancing master and Luisa is tainted by association. So Percy conveniently forgets all about her when he returns. While she is at the Twelfth Night party, a mysterious stranger takes an interest in her...

"An Unexpected Proposal" - by Annette Lyon -- (Logan Canyon Wood Camp, Utah 1880) -- Caroline is helping at the Wood Camp to help raise funds for her sick sister. As the only single woman in the lumber camp, she becomes the target of unwelcome advances from Butch Larsen.

By Jane
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed reading these stories! I love to enjoy a good romance without all the page skipping due to bad content! The authors were able to weave their characters into the winter settings in compelling stories that were fun to read. I very much enjoyed the tale Heidi Ashworth wrote and am excited to read more of her work. Thank you for publishing a "Clean" romance book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Any anthology with Sarah Eden in it is awesome October 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again, Sarah Eden's sense of humor, wit and charm has succeeded in giving me a moment out of time. I enjoy the cleanness of her stories, the fast pace, and the fact that I know her stories will have a great ending. This anthology is a collection of stories from others who like her, who love to give us a good clean read. A great escape from the pressures of your day.
