Not really impressed by this one It was cute, but the characters weren t really developed at all It s a short quick read with some good trashy fun towards the end but, it doesn t begin to compare to Lisa Kleypas or Victoria Alexander.

Good story but there were parts that i didn t like as much would read again but probably not a keeper Not bad I m glad it was short.
la historia fue divertida y en cierto punto me impreciono mucho ademas de que Guy deberia estar en mi cama
Good story, though I would have liked it to be a little longer Welburn has been sent to Fortune s Folly because Eve is suspected of being in league with local criminals This is the first time he has seen her since she disappeared without a trace five years earlier He was hurt and furious and all too willing to believe ill of her until he actually sees her again Suddenly things aren t adding up and he is determined to find out why Eve was heartbroken when she left him, but she loved him too much to allow him to throw his future away on her She is furious at his attitude, but knows that she still loves him She allows herself to be coerced into helping him, but ends up defending herself from trouble before he can rescue her Short as it was there was enough heat and action to make it a satisfying read.
An entertaining short story I ve read the other books in the Fortune s Folly series which I liked This one isn t as interesting as the full length books, but the characters are well developed The plot is a bit too contemporary though Duke wants to marry his mistress From a political point of view, that just wasn t done The power of the noble titles lies in the political and social position If his political and social allies cut him from the Ton, his title becomes worthless, and any get from the relationship would be cut as well.
For the lack of historical reality, this shorrt is a fairy tale.
And yeah, there s that cliche where she loves him but refuses to marry him She has reasons than many a heroine I ve read of baseborn, a courteasan, doesn t think she can have children I m just getting tired of the same argument Marry me, No Yes, you will No, I won t showing up in so many stories in my favorite genre.
