"The Unladylike Education of Agatha Tremain" by Stephanie Burgis: 4/5. Is it just me or does Agatha seem like a budding sociopath? I liked her all the same. This world seems really interesting and spooky.

"Mrs.Beeton's Book of Magickal Management" by Karen Healey: 4/5
I loooooooooooved it. The romance was kinda sudden, but the characters were fabulous.

"The Dancing Master" by Genevieve Valentine: 5/5. Some really subtle great stuff in this story. How do you words, Genevieve? Really liked the main four characters.

Lots of nice stories in here, but when you put together so many stories about people defying society's conventions to find true love, they start to feel downright... well, conventional. ( )

A collection of mostly non-spectacular stories. "Scandal" and "Impropriety" are pretty tame, TBH. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0762444304, Paperback)

The Season has finally arrived, filled with the magnificent balls, scandalous gossip, and clandestine romances that every lord and lady in good society has come to expect. But far within the walls of lavish estates and in the dark corners of the city lies a world that the aristocracy dares not touch, with rules and risks that glamour cannot overpower. Yet true love has no boundaries, and heiresses and street thieves alike must use their savvy and strength to create new beginnings and happily-ever-afters. Sometimes luck is enough, but every once in a while, a touch of magic may be needed.

Deliciously alluring, these thirteen historical romances from a talented array of YA authors will make even the most cynical heart swoon.
