Join three bestselling regency romance authors, Heidi Ashworth, Annette Lyon, and Michele Paige Holmes, for three new regency romance novellas in A MIDWINTER BALL.

MUCH ADO ABOUT DANCING by Heidi Ashworth. Two years have passed since Lord Northrup declared his intentions for Miss Analisa Lloyd-Jones and forbade any other man to court her. Angry at the neglect, Analisa stopped reading his letters, never even breaking the seals. Tired of waiting, Analisa joins the house party at Mrs. Smith’s famous country home, determined to find a beau. When Lord Northrup unexpectedly joins the party, Analisa discovers she is no longer repulsed by the man who first laid claim to her hand.

SWEETER THAN ANY DREAM by Annette Lyon. Olivia Wallington is firmly established as a spinster, but that doesn’t stop her from dreaming about the perfect man. Ever since her father’s death, Olivia has been forced into seclusion by her mother. When her brother and his wife come for a visit, they discover the extent to which she lives under their mother’s thumb. With their help, Olivia sneaks out to attend a local ball, where she meets Edward Blakemoore. For a few divine moments, all of her dreams seem possible. But even someone like Mr. Blakemoore would be hard pressed to get past Mrs. Wallington’s fortress of protection—or past Olivia’s pride.

AN INVITATION TO DANCE by Michele Paige Holmes. Lady Ella has been isolated on her father’s estate since her mother’s death as her father travels the world. When Alex Darling arrives with a letter from her long-dead fiancĂ©, and a demand that she travel to London for a series of engagements, Ella thinks her father instigated the strange demands and agrees. In London, she discovers the truth behind her fiancĂ©’s death, and that new love might be possible in the arms of the most unexpected man.

MY THOUGHTS:
Much Ado About Dancing by Heidi Ashworth
I loved this story. I can't image how hard it would be to have your parents pick out a betrothed for you. To grow up knowing you are to marry that person and for them to stop others from showing any interest in you because of their claim is just crazy. It was fun to see Analisa grow and mature through the book and to see past her reservations! What a great story!

Sweeter Than Any Dream by: Annette Lyon
This was such a fun read. Olivia doomed to be a spinster for life and controlled by her Mother and Aunt.....I was happy to see that she learned she needed to stand up for herself and that she needed her own voice. I have always been very outspoken so it is something I believe in full-heartedly. It was so great to see Olivia and Edward both get a happily ever after neither expected to happen! Great job Annette! 

An Invitation to Dance by:Michele Paige Holmes
Every great relationship is built on a beautiful friendship and that is exactly what Ella and Alex were able to form. Neither ever seeing anything less than the best of each other. What an awesome romance! This was  a great ending to this trio of stories! I enjoyed them all! 

Note: I was given an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
