I have always loved regency and I absolutely love anthologies, so putting these together makes for a great read.  I love anthologies because you get a sample of your favorite author’s writings and you also are introduced to new authors.  The stories are quick and easy to read and you still have the same love of the characters even though they are presented to you in half the time. That’s what I like about these authors, they do an amazing job at delivering a great story line, creating amazing characters, and a smile on your face when you are done reading.
