Seven delightful novellas joined by a common thread; loving and being loved during the early nineteenth century was more than complicated, but just as satisfying in the end.
I am familiar with work from each of these seven authors and was happy to find them all together in one book. The format works really well for me. I enjoyed reading one story in the evening, several days in a row.
No need to go into detail about each novella as other reviewers have already done so.

In First Comes Marriage by Amanda Barratt, Charity and Luke marry to save her reputation and erase her father's debt. He is angry about the marriage and leaves for the British navy immediately and they are apart for three years. Now he's back -- and she's upset at him. -- I mostly liked this story, especially after the three years when he's found Christ and tries to be a changed man and right past wrongs. Warning for more conservative readers, the hero does drink -- to get drunk. It also feels unfinished with hero's issues with his dad and sister.
In Masquerade Melody by Angela Bell, Walter and Adelaide are brought together in secret for a musical. But Adelaide must risk it all if she's to help and Walter has lost his muse. I greatly enjoyed this story, though the black moment seemed obvious from the beginning.
Three Little Matchmakers by Susanne Dietz was the sweetest story ever with three little matchmakers and a grandma who eggs them on. I loved how the children tried to recreate Caroline's and Henry's childhood by releasing a sheep in the mansion and cutting flowers.... Adorable. I loved this one.
The Gentleman Smuggler's Lady by Michelle Griep reminds me of Robin Hood with Isaac stealing what is rightfully his and using the money to help the poor. Helen has the power to ruin him--but doing so will also ruin herself. I enjoyed this surprising tale.
When I Saw His Face by Nancy Moser, Esther is widowed and her step-daughter has recently married, leaving Esther with an empty nest. She enjoys her freedom, but her neighbor Chester has been pursuing her, as well as another man leaving a delicious love triangle for the reader to unravel and enjoy. I enjoyed this story.
The Highwayman's Bargain by MaryLu Tyndall. I discovered Ms. Tyndall by her pirate stories which I loved. This is not a pirate story, but was just as good. I enjoyed this regency by a well-known and loved author. The hero and heroine were well-developed and real
In Jamie Ever After by Erica Vetsch, young maidens Jamie and Polly are presented for the London season. Polly’s brother Walter, is hiding his war injuries along with his heart though he loves Jamie. Through a series of events he finds them married - but will they find love?
