Publisher's Summary

Spring at Tribbley Hall by Sian Ann Bessey

When Charlotte's grandmother invites her to accompany her to Norfolk, Charlotte jumps at the chance to visit the sea and escape the fuss surrounding her sister's wedding preparations in London. Lord William Cheston, on the other hand, is most unhappy when his mother informs him that her old friend and a granddaughter are coming to stay. Not only is it lambing season, but he's also dealing with the mysterious loss of several sheep. The last thing he needs is a child underfoot.

When Charlotte and William first meet, he does not realize that the lovely young lady is the granddaughter in question, and she assumes that the man dressed in work clothes in the barn is a servant. A dinner party at the house introduces Charlotte to some of the gentry living nearby, but cannot compare to her experience the next evening, when she and William battle to save the life of a newborn lamb.

Soon afterward, Charlotte stumbles upon a clue to William's sheep's disappearance. And, when her life is placed in jeopardy, William is forced to choose between saving Charlotte and catching the thief.

Love of My Heart by Sarah M. Eden

Cordelia Wakefield has never lived anywhere but London and is not overly happy when her family is forced to retrench to a small estate near Teviotbrae, Scotland. An ill-fated game of battledore and shuttlecock brings her face-to-racquet with Sebastian, who runs the home farm at nearby Teviot Castle. What begins as a clash of personalities, expectations, and preferences soon leads to a friendship neither had expected.

As the magic of Teviotbrae weaves its spell, the possibility of something more than friendship begins to blossom. But, what future is there for a lowly farmer and a London lady?

Miss Smith Goes to Wiltshire by Rebecca Connolly

Martha Smith wants to marry for love, and will not be persuaded otherwise. She is highly sought after in Society for her beauty and status, but refuses to consider any suitor whose only claim is that his prospects meet with her mother's approval. Her widowed mother has had enough of Martha's romantic sensibilities, and is sending her to stay with unfortunate cousins in Wiltshire to show her that marrying for love is a risk that is too great.

Benjamin Steele, Lord Hillier, is working on his new and dilapidated estate when he first catches sight of the striking Martha Smith. Becoming Lord Hillier has only brought him a house that needs significant repairs, tenant farms that had been abandoned, and only the money he'd already possessed. He wants meaning in his life, and he's more than willing to work for it. Though worlds apart in all else, on this point they can agree: A life of meaning would change everything.

From the publisher of the USA Today best-selling number-one Amazon Timeless Romance Anthology series in regency romance.

Simply delightful!

This trio of stories is simply delightful! Each story introduces the reader to charming characters and a sweet tender romance set amongst the English countryside.
I enjoyed listening to the audio book version and found mystery blissfully whisked away to a bygone era, often to the detriment of the task at hand, and I can honor say that I didn’t mind one bit!
I’d recommend this collection of stories to anyone looking for a delightful collection of stories sure to bring a smile to your face and a warm glow in your heart!

Sweet Collection!

This book is a sweet collection of true love matches.
I enjoyed the whimsy provided by at least one sheep in each story as well as a few piglets in the last one.
As is common in novellas, things move quickly but I felt very satisfied with this book.

Very entertaining listen

The three novellas in Her Country Gentleman were a delight to listen to. I enjoyed all three stories. Although short, each had well-developed characters, a good plot, and an enjoyable storyline that featured heroines who each became enamored with a country gentleman.

Spring at Tribbley Hall by Sian Ann Bessey features Charlotte, a spunky heroine who escapes with her grandmother to the country and has a heart-pounding adventure when a sheep thief goes a little too far. Love of My Heart by Sarah M. Eden features Cordelia, forced to relocate with her family to the country where she discovers lovely vistas that inspire her artistic soul and draw her to a kind gentleman farmer. And finally, Miss Smith Goes to Wiltshire by Rebecca Connolly features a young woman who wishes to marry for love, and so is temporarily banished by her mother to the country to visit her aunt. Martha is charmed by the country life and a certain gentleman, and the reader is regaled with humorous scenes between the two.

The narrator Kim Bretton does an excellent job with all the character accents and she brings each story to life, with its lovely heroines and comedic scenes. Very entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this first collection book and I eagerly look forward to the next one.

Quick and Sweet Low Angst Love in the Country Tale

I’ve enjoyed some of the Timeless Collection anthologies in the past and was particularly jazzed because this was the first Georgian Era set of stories and they were all city girl heads to the countryside romances. Two of the three authors were already delightfully familiar, but I was equally excited for a new to me author and to have a narrator who I’d not experienced, too.

The three novellas were all standalone though they share the same premise of young lady leaving London and into the countryside where they experience the country and a charming romance.

In ‘Spring at Tribbley Hall’, I was tickled that the story includes a suspense element when Lord Cheston’s sheep are being stolen, but the first meeting involving a cute puppy and mistaken identity set the tone and the rest of the romance engineered by William’s mama and Charlotte’s grandmamma was a fabulous start.

From there, ‘Love of My Heart’ has poor Cordelia Wakefield along with her spendthrift family departing expensive London for Scotland and a fresh start. An infamous meet cute takes place between her and a certain farmer, Sebastian. Cordelia won my respect the way she really tried to keep her chin up with such a trying family. Sebastian was a solid man who is not exactly what she thought at first and they were splendid together as was this story.

Finally, ‘Miss Smith Goes to Wiltshire’ has Martha Smith sent off to the country as some sort of punishment that was far from it for Martha who takes to country life like a champ and strikes up a romance with the new Lord Hillier who is working to turn his newly acquired estate around. A sweet romp!

Kim Bretton did a stellar job of matching accent, characters, and the tone of the stories. I settled right into her storytelling and was able to get lost into the world of the stories so that I was reluctant to stop listening.

All in all, I absolutely adored all this love in the country and the time period. Each story was unique and came to romance a little differently, paced nicely, they were well-developed, and were quick in the telling as novellas. If someone wants some sweet and charming historical romances with not much angst, I would definitely suggest this first of the Timeless Georgian collections.

3 great stories!

I loved the characters and the country experiences. I thought it was fun that each one involved sheep even though they were so very different.

A wonderful collection of historical romances

I LOVE these collections and it's always fun to get to read stories set in a new era. This collection is about ladies finding love in the countryside away from all the formalities of Society, because London is not the only place where love can be found. The stories in this collection are by authors that are auto-reads for me, so it's not surprising that I loved this collection.

Spring at Tribbley Hall by Sian Ann Bessey--When Charlotte's grandmother visits an long-time friend in Norfolk she has Charlotte accompany her. Lord William Cheston isn't happy his mother has invited guests to stay with them because it's lambing season,. Despite that, William spends time with Charlotte showing her the estate and explaining about the sheep, then confides in her that someone is stealing sheep. They work together to figure out when the sheep are being stolen, who's behind, and where the thief could be taking them.

This was a fun story with a fiesty grandma who's doing a little behind the scenes matchmaking with her long-time friend. Of course Charlotte and William don't know or suspect anything. I liked the mystery of the missing sheep and as usual, I was surprised who the culprit turned out to be.

Love of My Heart by Sarah M. Eden--Cordelia Wakefield, her sister and parents are moving to Scotland because her family can no longer afford to live in London. She meets Sebastian, the "Home Farmer" of the local laird, in a quite memorable meet-cute. Despite their seeming differences in station--a genteel lady and a farmer--Cordelia and Sebastian form a friendship that quickly shows the potential to become more.

I loved Cordelia's attitude about her family having to move to Scotland. She was determined to make the best of it. Her parents on the other hand, didn't seem to have learned anything from the mistakes they made in London. I loved Sebastian. He was so good and kind, unlike his crotchety grandfather. One of my favorite parts, besides when Sebastian meets Cordelia, was when he stood up to his grandfather, that and when he told Cordelia his wasn't just a farmer.

Miss Smith Goes to Wiltshire by Rebecca Connolly--Martha Smith has been sent to live with her "unfortunate cousins" in Wiltshire so she can see what happens when you marry for love. In Wiltshire she sees is how happy her cousin, who married for love, is and meets Benjamin Steele, the new Lord Hillier, who is trying to turn around the dilapidated estate he's inherited.

I loved that nothing seemed to faze Martha. I know I wouldn't have been so nonchalant if I'd stepped in animal droppings. I liked that Benjamin quickly noticed there was something special about Martha and that she was a source of encouragement for him. I felt that together there wasn't anything those two couldn't accomplish.

I love that all the stories are sweet romances and you can read the book all at once or read each story when you have the time. The narrator, Kim Bretton, is amazing. She's become one of my favorite narrators because of her ability to get the emotions of the stories across in her reading. I also love being able to hear the British and Scotish accents.

It was just ok…

I love Sarah M Eden, but her story was to short to get deep into her characters…… Rebecca Connolly was a bit better, but she does well with short stories and banter too:)
Would I buy it in paper back, probably not… which is sad, because if I love the book, then I buy it in paper back😂
Now, I do have to say….. that I don’t think it’s the Author behind each story that has me pondering the level of this book, but unfortunately, the Narrator. I will try to read it, instead of listening to it… That might make a difference for me.

Entertaining

Overall rating: 5 stars

This is an anthology full of amazing, well written romances. Each story is unique and approaches love from a different viewpoints and circumstances, but linked together by having a country setting and sheep. These stories are clean reads and are very well edited.

I was given an advance copy of this book. My review was voluntary and my opinions were my own. I highly recommend this anthology to Georgian historical romance lovers. They are wonderful quick reads and I'm looking forward to reading the next anthology in this series.
