Book Summary:

Join three bestselling Regency Romance authors, Jennifer Moore, G.G. Vandagriff, and Nichole Van, for three new novellas in SPRING IN HYDE PARK:

A HAPPY ACCIDENT by Jennifer Moore. Jonathan Burles father has just died, making him the new Marquess of Spencer and the most sought after bachelor in London. An unfortunate accident leads to a forced marriage to Maryann Croft, a young woman who possesses no title, and an unexpected secret. With the unstable beginning to their marriage, finding love together seems impossible.

THE DISDAINFUL DUKE by G. G. Vandagriff. Lady Saphronia Huffington has always thought of herself as plain next to the beauty of her sister, Lady Lavinia. So when her sister becomes engaged to Lord Gilbert Caldwell and Saphronia is paired for wedding events with his brother, the granite-faced Duke of Mayfield, who is known to prefer beauties, she sharpens her wit. Thus begins a lengthy sparring contest during which the Duke realizes Saphronia is anything but plain.

AN INVISIBLE HEIRESS by Nichole Van. Miss Belle Heartstone has everything money can buy—houses, servants, carriages, clothing, jewels. A husband, however, is proving much harder to, ehr . . . purchase. Colin Radcliffe, the newly minted Marquess of Blake, is in desperate need of funds—preferably of the wife-free variety. When circumstances draw the two together, Blake might be the only man able to see beyond the Belle’s outer façade, and fall in love with the woman inside.

I was very excited to read this book. I had been looking forward to reading it since I found out about it. Overall I enjoyed these stories.
A Happy Accident: I really liked this story. It was well written. I really liked the characters. I felt I could relate to both Maryann and Jonathan. I would love to read stories about some of the other characters in this story.
Rating: 4.5 stars
Content: Clean
The Disdainful Duke: This story was pretty good. I had a hard time getting fully enveloped by the story. I liked the story better closer to the end, though it did feel like it wrapped up fast.
Rating: 3.5 stars
Content: Clean – references to infidelity, drinking
The Invisible Heiress: This was my favorite of the three stories. I loved it. As I started to read, I thought it would be a fairly predictable story. It was not. I loved the way in which Belle and Lord Blake got to know each other and how their relationship evolved. I look forward to reading more stories by this author.
