Another Timeless Regency Collection that I enjoyed reading, the stories are quick and entertaining.  These collections help you find new authors to explore and also bring in your favorite authors.  This collection wasn’t my favorite, but it wasn’t a disappointment either.

Love is Come (Power of the Matchmaker)

Buy:Love is Come (Power of the Matchmaker)

She was devastated; her whole world as she knew it was taken away from her.   With the tragic accident that killed her parents, Nelle Thompson  moved to the country to live with her strict unloving aunt.  Trying to get over the grief and depression while making sure to account for every expense she incurred in her aunt’s ledger, Nelle didn’t know how she was ever going to survive.  It didn’t help that she had constant bags under eyes from the nightmares that woke her at night, could she ever get out of her slump?  There was only one true person that could make her smile, Mathew Janson.  Mathew, who also happened to be her eccentric cousin’s fiancé, was everything Nelle thought a true gentleman and fiancé should be.  However, what do you do when you find yourself falling in love with your cousin’s fiancé?  With the help and guidance of Pearl, the owner of the apothecary shop, Nelle hopes to find true happiness before she slips further into her depression.  There is only one problem, a certain event leads Nelle into believing that she has truly lost her mind, and the only option left for her to do is run back to the city and hide from everything and everybody she has come to love.

 

Another book in the Power of the Matchmaker series, Love is Come, can be read alone as can all the books in this series.  It has been fun to read Miss Pearl’s adventures and watch as she comes and goes in these couples lives.  Heather B. Moore has quickly moved up my list of favorite authors to read, because she is so great at weaving a sweet romance.  I usually stay away from any kind of book or movie from this time era because I do not enjoy the era at all.  The women are easy and the men are jerks.  It was nice to find that a gentleman could actually exist during this time and a woman could keep her virtues.
