Timeless Love: Romantic Stories that Span the Ages

 goodreads | amazon



Give Me Thine Heart by Andrea Boshaar

Ladies in pastel gowns of pink, green, and blue skipped by as the orchestra played a lively tune.

The Heart of Home by Stephenia H. McGee

The pesky tribulations of life always seemed more stifling in the wake of departing company.

This Freedom Journey by Misty M. Beller

Adrien Lockman trudged through the snow, the frames of his snowshoes carrying him at least two feet higher than the weary mule tracking behind him.

Enchanting Nicholette by Dawn Crandall

I suppose you have a new wardrobe ordered from Paris?

Teach Me To Love by Kari Trumbo

For the first time in two days, Izzy had doubts as she rode along the hilly trail.

Façade by Pepper Basham

Olivia Rakes sat in the corner of the lavish ballroom of her parents’ London townhouse, watching couples on the dance floor move in perfect synchrony as if part of one of the new moving picture shows.

Bookishly Ever After by Sarah Monzon

“Boo.” Right in my ear, the word resounded like the report of a gun.


This is an entertaining collection with plenty of variety and heart. I highly recommend it, have already reread a couple of the stories, and plan to reread others as well!

I received an advanced reader copy of these stories and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.


Seriously, what are y’all waiting for?! You won’t regret spending less than a dollar on 900+ pages of reading enjoyment!



I purchased a Kindle copy of the Timeless Love collection for one fortunate Faithfully Bookish reader!
