Book burble: Lady Whistledown Tells All!
Society is abuzz when the Season's most promising debutante is jilted by her intended – only to be swept away by the deceitful rogue's dashing older brother – in New York Times bestseller, JULIA QUINN'S witty, charming, and heartfelt tale.

When the scandalous actions of his beautiful fiancée are recorded in Lady Whistledown's column, a concerned groom-to-be rushes back to London to win his lady's heart once and forever, in
SUZANNE ENOCH'S enchanting romantic gem.

KAREN HAWKINS captivates with an endearing story of a handsome rogue whose lifelong friendship – and his heart – are tested when the lovely lady in question sets her cap for someone else.

A dazzling and delightful tale by
MIA RYAN has a young woman cast out of her home by an insufferable yet charming marquis – who intends to take possession not only of the house... but its former occupant as well!

The delightful forerunner to LADY WHISTLEDOWN STRIKES BACK in this another glorious Regency-era compilation of four linked romances. Again, as was that former, the linking is made by social commenter Lady Whistledown. Whistledown’s is the sharp that eye misses little but shockingly relates her shrewd observations, liberally garnished with bold insinuations, in her gossip column. The same authors as in the next title contribute to this forerunner.

Covering a period of approximately three week’s during the ‘London Season’ four couple lives intersect as various individuals prowel, cringe, waltz, or slide innocuously through the social gatherings, balls and soirees that make the Regency marriage mart. Notably these interactions hinge around an evening’s performance of The Merchant of Venice starring Edmund Kean and held at the Theatre Royal, a chilly ice-skating party inventively hosted on surface of the frozen Thames, and finally Lady Shelbourne's ever popular Valentine Day's ball, which befitting that popularity is a total crush, and an occasion if ever there was one for events to go awry.

Each of the authors highlights the entanglements of a different couple as they wrangle their relationship toward recognition of love and the tales are neatly interwoven so dexterously that some of the same encounters, even down to the dialogue, are presented from different couple’s point of view. All are neat wee tales that are a treat for fans of Regency romance fiction.

Into the post to a Somerset holding location where it will await the return of Flutterbies9.

EDITED TO ADD – MON 19 NOV 2018: my planned REGENCY BOX RAY, put on hold, is finally posted.

Arrived safely in Somerset in a beautifully decorated box (recognised some paper as from me on your birthday gifts! and so appropriate for this). I have many books at present but I'm sure I can squeeze these easily read little critters in somewhere whilst reading my Secret Santa books and Book Club book. In fact, these may well not stay on tbr for long at all. One of two from authors I have previously read (and liked) so I'm sure I'll get on with this one.
