Publisher's Summary

Eventually, all wallflowers will have their chance at love...this is where it begins.

"The Wallflower’s Dance" by Jen Geigle Johnson

Lottie Hughes likes people, as long as they aren't too close. Does it bother her that no one asks her to dance? Yes, but she's not sure how to drum up dance partners when she has almost no dowry and no title, and freezes up when anyone tries to talk to her. When she suddenly inherits a huge amount and is the new center of attention all over London, her secret dreams might come true but also her worst nightmares. Suddenly everyone wants to talk to her. Men ask her to dance. And she is inundated with interested suitors. She fights to stay close to the few friends she knows are true. One man saw her before her life changed forever. But does she want to accept his help when he, too, might be insincere?

"Letters to a Wallflower" by Heather B. Moore

Ellen might be beautiful and considered a diamond of the first water by Society, but she is so very tired of the pressure to marry a titled gentleman so that her beauty won’t go to waste. When her cousin Dinah dares Ellen to attend a ball with no frills and to stand with the wallflowers, Ellen takes on the dare. What’s in the wager for her? The prize cuttings of her aunt’s extraordinary roses. But what Ellen isn’t expecting is Lord Ravenshire to engage her in the most interesting conversation. When she confesses to him of her opposition in marrying for a title, he confesses his distaste of the London scene. They strike a bargain together, one which will either push them apart or lead to a future sweeter than either of them could have imagined.

"To Marry a Wallflower" by Anneka R. Walker

Charlotte Winters is destined to spinsterhood until she turns down an unwanted proposal and everything changes. With gossip rampant, her father attempts to salvage her reputation by betrothing her to another. Soon she is sent off to her aunt’s to meet Lord Templeton, her intended. Anxiety-ridden, Charlotte begs her aunt to let her observe Lord Templeton from afar before their introduction. She never planned to pretend to be her fictional cousin to learn more about him, or to fall in love with Lord Templeton’s friend in the process. Lord Templeton dreads returning to the empty halls of Newcliff Manor. When his father’s old friend, Mr. Winters reaches out for assistance, Lord Templeton finds himself returning home engaged to a woman he has never met. Desperate to learn more about Miss Winters, he befriends her cousin. He wouldn’t have spoken to her, or lied about his identity, if he’d known the quiet woman would sneak into his heart.

Enjoyed

These were short and sweet. I enjoyed the second and third ones the most because there was also a little intrigue. The narrators were both excellent. My preference is one narrator per book, but they did a good job capturing the two different points of view. The volume could have been adjusted between the chapters by the producer, though, since one reader was slightly louder than the other.

This has turned out to be one of my favorite reads. The excellent narration enhanced the stories and brought the individuals to life. I will definitely be listening to this again.

Clean regency romance read by 2 narrators to great effect

To Kiss A Wall Flower (4 stars)

These books are light and fun and have some unique plots lines! They are an enjoyable escape, as are all the Timeless Romance collections! *

The Wallflower’s Dance by Jen Geisel Johnson

Lottie tends to become tongue-tied when talking with strangers, but her friend, Denny, is someone she feels comfortable with and he takes an active role in helping her along when her nerves make it impossible to form a coherent sentence.

This friends-to-more story is sweet. Jealousy strikes both friends at various times, causing them to realize that love was right in front of them all along.

Letters to a Wallflower by Heather B. Moore

Dinah is a diamond of the first water and, although she wants a husband, isn’t ready to risk her heart on the men the ton has to offer; rakes and gamblers the lot of them. She doesn’t particularly care about all the social goings-on and wants to live in the country and tend her garden.

Aaron has recently come into his title. His brother, a rake and a gambler, died young from his vices. Aaron was in the navy and is now trying to make repairs to the long-neglected estate and raise a herd of merino sheep for the Prince Regent. He would like to get married, but not until things are in better repair.

Both make bets with their relatives. To satisfy said relatives, they start to write letters to one another.

Unsurprisingly, the better they come to know one another, the more they want the letters to be more than a ruse.

To Marry a Wallflower by Annika R. Walker

Luke and his friend are at their club when they overhear an argument between a well-known rake/scoundrel and a man who was good friends with his father. After the rake is thrown out, Mr. Winters tells Luke of his difficulties. The rake is adamant that he is going to ruin, through rumor, the reputation of Mr. Winter’s daughter. The men put their heads together to try to help the innocent woman and Luke leaves the cub betrothed to a woman he’s never met.

Charlotte is appalled at being, in essence, sold to a man she’s never met. She was only ever being polite to the rake/scoundrel and when she turned down his proposal of marriage, she had no idea that things would turn so ugly.

The two intended meet, but each disguises his/her true identity from the other. Then they begin a correspondence where they each tell about themselves and use their alter-egos to deliver the letters.

It’s a delightful muddle when their alter-egos fall in love!

*Note: loss of one star because modern verbiage and colloquialisms throughout the three novellas tend to pull one out of the Regency and back into the modern era.

Narration: 4 stars

The idea of using two alternating voice actors; a man and a woman, is very effective and the two actors do a creditable job! I don’t think I’ve ever heard such a deep male voice and the female voice was excellent!

They both made a couple of mistakes in British pronunciation, but on the whole they did a very nice job. I would definitely listen to both of these voice actors again!

Another wonderful collection


I'm always excited when another collection is released. I LOVE them because if I'm short on time I can read a complete story in less than an hour. This collection focuses on the Wallflowers, those shy young women who stand or sit along the wall hoping for a dance and a chance at finding love. All of these novellas are sweet romances with just kisses.

THE WALLFLOWER'S DANCE by Jen Geigle Johnson
Lottie is shy and has trouble talking to people she doesn't know well, but as long as she's got her best friend Denny there to help her she can manage. Overnight Lottie becomes an heiress and everyone starts treating her differently and she's receiving attention from so many gentlemen. Are they truly interested in her, or just or money? This is such a sweet best friends to love story. I like how Denny and his sister helped Lottie and hoped Lottie would be able to see through those who didn't have her best interest at heart.

LETTERS TO A WALLFLOWER by Heather B. Moore
Ellen is tired of attending balls and doesn't care to marry a man with a title so she makes a bet with her cousin and for one ball she pretends to be a wallflower. Lord Ravenshire has made a deal with his mother to dance with a wallflower and of course comes upon Ellen. Can Lord Ravenshire help Ellen win her wager with her cousin and still keep the deal he made with his mother? This was a fun mistaken identity/fake relationship story especially with Ellen's unconventional spinster cousin and the neighborhood gossip trying to figure out which young lady Lord Ravenshire was visiting.

TO MARRY A WALLFLOWER by Anneka R. Walker
When Charlotte turns down an unwanted proposal she never dreamed her father would hurry to get her betrothed to another to "save her reputation". Luke agrees to marry Charlotte without knowing anything about her. They get to know each other by exchanging letters, with each thinking the other is someone else. I really enjoyed this super fun double fake identity romance as Charlotte and Luke fell in love with each other, but thought they were someone else. I really loved watching these two fall in love.

I love the dual narrators for each of the novellas. Shane East & Shakira Shute are both wonderful. Who doesn't love a man with a British accent?!!

An excellent Regency anthology

This was an anthology full of amazing, well written romances. Each story was unique and approached love from differing viewpoints and circumstances, but linked together by having wallflowers as the theme. These stories were clean reads and were very well edited.  The narrators did an excellent job and brought the stories to life.

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