    I can t add much to what has already been written But I will say that Elizabeth Cole really drew me in with her vivid descriptions and wonderful prose.It s a novella, so I accept it is short, but it would not have been harmed in any way to be longer.I was born a long time after 1821, but the descriptions are so vivid I felt I was there You know the holodeck adventures in Star Trek It s like you could create the perfect regency setting, and it would look like the characters fit into the worl I can t add much to what has already been written But I will say that Elizabeth Cole really drew me in with her vivid descriptions and wonderful prose.It s a novella, so I accept it is short, but it would not have been harmed in any way to be longer.I was born a long time after 1821, but the descriptions are so vivid I felt I was there You know the holodeck adventures in Star Trek It s like you could create the perfect regency setting, and it would look like the characters fit into the world created by Miss Cole.A short story, and in short, I loved it

    Short story Quick regency romance MOSTLY clean though hinted at things I d have preferred not be hinted at, i.e., His dreams were unusually vivid, however, and required him to wash with extra cold water upon waking It also had some pretty passionate kisses I liked the story although the conclusion wasn t completely believable.


  9. Amanda Valentine Amanda Valentine says:

    Full disclosure I edited this novella.This is a sweet romantic story with intelligent characters whose connection goes well beyond the physical Their banter is amusing and the pace of the story is relatively quick The secret isn t drawn out artificially, which is something I really appreciate.
