An Engagement of Convenience-by Regina Scott
Tricked by a beautiful and cunning belle as a young man, Quentin was harshly horsewhipped and sent into exile to Jamaica for a "crime" he did not commit. Now back to visit his father, he runs into Kitty, the belle's younger cousin, who inadvertently caused the trouble for him ten years ago. Shocked to see him again after so long, Kitty, who helps manage her uncle's estate and acts as a chaperone to his daughters, blurts out a quick apology, something she'd been waiting to do for ten years. Seeing her again, Quentin comes up with a plan to save his business. If all goes well, it will not only save his business but Kitty as well...
A Perfect Match - Donna Hatch
The shy, Adonis-like Christopher comes to the home of Matilda's family for a house party with his father. He hopes to paint the abbey while visiting. Matilda hopes to land Christopher as a husband. But Christopher has eyes only for Genevieve, Matilda's best friend.
The Pauper's House Party - Sarah M. Eden
-"The Warricks had brought together the destitute, the struggling, and the futureless in order to bestow their graciousness upon them all at once. Edward and Tom were not, then, to serve as extra bodies at this party. They had been brought to Somerset to reside at the Society equivalent of the alms house."-
The Warricks, a very well-off couple, have no children and therefore no heirs, so they decide to invite several people to a house party. All of the guests are poor. The Warricks will be choosing their heirs from amongst the guests. Let the games begin! The competition is on - who will win the Warricks' favour - and the inheritance? Intriguing storyline!
This one was my favourite of the three, mostly because there was some humour in it and it was so cleverly written.
My overall impression of this anthology was that it was well-written, with a mature style and rich vocabulary. I liked the stories but I have to say it wasn't my favourite set of the regency anthologies. It was still enjoyable, however.
In AN ENGAGEMENT OF CONVENIENCE, Kitty and Quentin hatch a plan to pretend to be engaged. I always love this idea in a story, as it always seems to result from a few sparks that fan into flames. There's a great chemistry and plenty of humor, which I wasn't expecting to find. I adored the characters and found the story to be very...engaging.
I'm a big fan of the Amesbury brothers and was thrilled to find a story revolving around perfectly perfect Christian in this set. A PERFECT MATCH has another favorite idea--love can't be forced and is often found unexpectedly. The tension of fighting off feelings, as well as precious stolen moments, completely captured my heart. The way the story progresses is natural and inviting. I could picture the exuberant characters and loved the house party descriptions.
THE PAUPER'S HOUSE PARTY has a very interesting twist. The Warricks don't have heirs and decide to host a party for those less fortunate to try and find someone to inherit. Edward and Agatha each have no desire to play along, yet they do for a time. Their time together is well spent. I adored Agatha's sense of humor and her interactions with others. This is a good match, although doomed, and the way it all came together is very gratifying, as well as entertaining.
This is a fantastic book for those who love clean Regency romances with some great, spunky characters. These stories all made me feel so light-hearted and happy and I loved them all!
Content: mild romance. Clean!

A Perfect Match 2 Stars The writing and characters in this are well done. I was enjoying it until the ending when it just...ended. It is a cliffhanger and you must buy the next book to finish the story. I won't be buying the rest of the story since it is obvious how it will end and who the villain is going to be. However, I enjoyed this author's work and will look for more of her books if I can be sure they are BOOKS and not just portions of books!
The Pauper's House Party 5 Stars This is one of the best that I have read in some time. The plot is truly unusual as a wealthy couple throws a house party and invites only impoverished people to attend. The couple announces that at the end of the party they will be giving their entire estate to one lucky person. The dialogue is witty, the characters are well done, and I loved the HEA. This is an author that is now on my 'to buy' list.
