Every time I read a new anthology in the Timeless Romance anthologies line I think, "I have a new favorite, they can't get better than this one." Well this one is definitely a new favorite. I have honestly enjoyed every anthology that I have read. You can't go wrong with great authors coming together to write clean, sweet, witty, swoony and unputdownable stories covering many different topics. And even better, this collection has all three of the original creators of this line contributing a nov ...more
LOVED it! This is the latest in the Timeless Regency series. I like that there's only 3 stories so they're longer and the stories all feel complete and not rushed to an ending.

Miss Odette Armistead is in love with someone, so to fend off unwanted suitors during the Season she puts on airs, etc and earns herself the title Princess Pompous. Much to her dismay her parents have brought in a matchmaker, Adelaide Northrop, to find her a husband by the end o

Each one of these stories is utterly delightful! The common factor is Grosvenor Square--a very prestigious area of London. I think what really charmed me is how each story told a different angle of people living in these times and how they would relate to this place.

A MATCH FOR PRINCESS POMPOUS gave the reader a tale of a secret. "Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match..." I haven't really read a story where a matchmaker is employed and wow, is she good at what she does. I loved the secret and

A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah Eden
This is Sarah Eden at her finest! I love when she writes these light, charming regencies. The plot for this one was so fun, I loved the idea of a regency Matchmaker and Mrs. Adelaide Northrop does a great job matching couples all over England. I sincerely wish Ms. Eden would write a whole series based on Mrs. Northrops adventures in matchmaking! I really enjoyed this one, even though its a shorter story, it felt well developed

I love the Timeless Regency Collections! I’m always excited when a new one comes out, but this one had me even more excited than usual. I love all three of these authors! I couldn’t wait to see what they had in store for me!

A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah M. Eden – I love Mrs. Northrop! It is fun to watch her in action! I loved her desire to help people find true happiness. And I wanted Jack and Odette to find happiness! They were such great characters! Their devotion to each other was so

The Timeless Romance collections are my favorite way to escape! I just read the stories one right after the other. It's like having a box of See's Candy chocolates all to yourself... I enjoyed each of the stories- the characters that come to life so quickly, the amazing Regency setting, the satisfying plots that can be devoured quickly. Once again, each story is unique even though they share the theme of Grosvenor Square, and it was fun to see how they each tied it in. I loved the knowing matchm ...more

I'm lucky this is a written review, because I am having a devil of a time spelling, let alone pronouncing Grosvenor!

All that aside, this was another fun collection. Each story was short enough to finish in one sitting, if I was lucky enough to read uninterrupted, yet each story was well fleshed-out.

I loved this collection of stories. One thing they all had in common, not everything was as it seemed. The characters were of the ton, and of the lower class. They were all wonderful characters. I liked each and every one of them.

In "A Match Princess Pompous" I really hope that the matchmaker, Adelaide Northrop makes an appearance in another Sarah Eden story. She's an advocate to the couples she matches. Her plan is to be an observer and see beyond the facade that people present t

3 Great Clean Regency reads.
Sarah Eden's was first....I actually saved it for last. She is one of my favorite authors and her short stories are my fav. It was such a fun read. It was like a retelling of Mary Poppins only for regency girls who can't find love. It was great I enjoyed every minute of it:}
The 2nd was Annette Lyon Confections and Pretense. This was a good story but was just too wordy. Having a short story feel like it's dragging is never a good thing. It was sweet and pulled at the

A lovely collection of Regency novellas. I definitely could not pick a favorite!
Even though the stories are short, there is plenty of opportunity to fall for the characters and their sweet stories.
I also liked the variety: in the first story there's a "professional" matchmaker that helps the couple get together; in the second, there's a handsome American hero who saves the heroine, in more ways than one; the last story has a very whimsical beginning.

Highly recommend!

First, I want to remind you that I don't review a book if I didn't genuinely enjoy it. Here's why - I don't want to spend more time thinking about a book if I didn't like it and so I won't review it. I mean, I read a lot of books and if a book is just ok or if I liked it but didn't finish it wanting to share it, then I usually don't.

That said, I review a lot of books. I may be easy to please, but I also really enjoy reading and want others to be able to enjoy reading - and reading a good book!

I have not met a book in the Timeless Regency Collection that I hated. This collection of Regency novellas was no different. Each one was fun and added to the theme of the book. Plus, I love each of the authors in this set.

I thoroughly enjoyed A Match for Princess Pompous. Everyone loves a good match maker story. Adelaide cracked me up! I love she did not put up with Odette’s bad attitude and always kept an eye out for the not-so-obvious feelings. I would love for the author to write more about

I've been looking forward to this book for quite a while! These Timeless Collections are some of my favorites and I always know when a new one comes out I am in for a treat.

The different writing styles of these three different authors really shine in this collection. Even though all three stories are regencies, I loved the slightly different variations that made them feel unique.

In the first book, Adelaide the matchmaker had a slightly magical quality about her. I loved the way she could "see"

A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah M. Eden - 2.5 ⭐ I didn’t feel any chemistry between the h and H. This is the first book by Sarah M. Eden that I didn’t like.

Confections and Pretense by Annette Lyon - 2.5 ⭐ I really enjoyed the romance but I just can’t suspend my disbelief at some parts.

Little London by Heather B. Moore - 3.5 ⭐ Pure fluff. I don’t usually like a story with love at first sight but the characters are thankfully sensible about it.

There are three regency style novellas in this book. I enjoyed them all but like Eden's story the best.

A Match for Princess Pompous by Sarah M. Eden:

1810, Adelaide Northrop is a match maker for the ton. She is quite busy during the Season and is just finishing up a case in Bath when she is whisked away to London to save Lord Barrington's daughter's season. She has been labeled Princess Pompous and the ton can't stand her.

A Match for Princess Pompous - by Sarah Eden
Adelaide Northrop is a matchmaker who helps family of the ton find matches for their daughters. Everyone thinks she has her work cut out for her when she is asked to help find a match for Odette Armistead, but it doesn't take Adelaide long to figure out why Odette (also known as "Princess Pompous") is acting the way she is. I would love for there to be more books about Adelaide and the matrimonial magic she work

A Night in Grosvenor Square was a enjoyable read. Although it is not my favourite of the collection, the stories were sweet and agreeable to read.
Usually, I find that the anthologies of Timeless Collections order the stories in each book from good to best - I am usually always happy with that as my favourite story is always the one I end with.
However, this time, my opinion was more balanced as I did not have a real favourite.

All three novellas were good, but perhaps a little precipitated - I don

I really enjoyed all three of these stories. They're clean, well-written, filled with romance, and during the Regency period of England which is my favorite. And they're all very different from each other so it's not like you're reading the same story again and again. All three authors do an excellent job of weaving historical facts into their stories about girls who are navigating the ton and the meat market that is a Season in Regency England.

With a lot of sadness and illness in my life lately I needed a quick read that would pep me up. I needed a story that I could finish with a smile on my face instead of tears in my eyes. I enjoyed reading Falling for a Duke so much that I decided to pick up another volume in the Timeless Regency Collection, A Night in Grosvenor Square.

How much I love reading these fun and endearing collections! This one marks another great one with wonderful and diverse stories.
This time the common denominator of the three is the famous Grosvenor Square. Even though this location was known to be the stomping ground of the elite of the time, we still get to meet all the classes of society of London in the 1800s.
