I read a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions in this review are my own.
Isabelle Strathmore, having been on the receiving end of heartbreak, will never fall in love again. Instead, she'll travel and see the world and keep her heart to herself. Gavin Reed, having been pursued by too many fortune hunters, is wary of women. Neither is expecting to fall for someone, and yet, as they spend time together on their Mediterranean cruise, they are drawn to each other.
This was an enjoyable story. I liked seeing Isabelle and Gavin overcome their reservations about the opposite sex. I also really liked seeing how Gavin went from disdainful to romantic.
FALLING IN ROME by Jennifer Moore
Eleanor Doyle is chaperoning two sisters on their grand tour; if she can successfully keep them out of trouble, their father will ensure a research position at a London university. In Rome, they meet Russell Kendrick, a professor, and his three students. While Eleanor enjoys Ken's company very much, one of her wards is overly interested in one of his students, and as much as Eleanor wants to help Ken as he uncovers Roman relics, she can't risk losing the position she has worked so hard for.
I loved seeing the romance in this book--especially since it had a lot to do with Eleanor's and Ken's intellectual compatibility. i also really liked the plot line of exploring and discovering Roman ruins.
A SECRET ARRANGEMENT by Heather B. Moore
Henry Gaiman is engrossed in his archaeological work in Egypt and inheriting an estate when a distant uncle dies is a hindrance to his work, but he dutifully heads to England to make arrangements--including tracking down his uncle's widow to assure her that she will be able to keep her home. He's not prepared to meet his aunt's charge, Evelyn Tucker, freshly graduation from finishing school. Evelyn seems genuinely interested in Henry's work--and he finds himself interested in her.
This was another great story. Again, I really enjoyed the archaeological aspect as well as the romance.
This was such a fun collection; I loved all three couples as well as the chance to see a bit of the Mediterranean, Rome, and Egypt. I've really enjoyed the Timeless Regency books and I'm excited that they've branched out into the Victorian era as well.
I received a free copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
I would have liked to have gotten more details on the betrayal that Isabelle experienced as a younger woman. And I disliked the reference to Gavin praying to all the gods when he was desperate, though I understand the reason for that was that he was desperate and they were in Greece. It was probably period appropriate, but. . .
Falling in Rome - This book had me absolutely charmed. I loved the interactions between Eleanor and Ken and the way they both cared for their charges, and enjoyed the fact that their connection was through archaeology and scholarly pursuits.
A Secret Arrangement - This was another story with archaeology and a love of history. Though I know that the use of first names was reserved for intimate acquaintances at this time in history, the way Henry reacted to being able to refer to Evelyn by her first name was so very sweet.
