Snowy Night with a Stranger

Julia London, Jane Feather, Sabrina Jeffries, . . Pocket Star, $7.99 (404pp) ISBN 978-1-4165-7822-2

Three bestselling Regency romance authors dish up a holiday feast of jewel-tone ball gowns and smoldering glances. Feather (To Wed a Wicked Prince ) introduces Lady Georgiana Carey and Ned Vasey, aka Viscount Allenton, in “A Holiday Gamble,” where they must circumvent their respective betrothals to consummate their attraction. In “Snowy Night with a Highlander,” London (The Book of Scandal ) sends a masked stranger to help unescorted heiress Lady Fiona Haines travel a deserted road through Scotland's infamous Highlands. In the best of the three, “When Sparks Fly,” Jeffries (Let Sleeping Rogues Lie ) strands holiday traveler Elinor Bancroft with her aunt and cousins at the home of the despicable Black Baron, Martin Thorncliff. While the endings are no surprise, there's plenty of romance and charm to enjoy along the way. (Nov.)
