    78 pages long! I wish it cost less...but for what it's worth-it was a good read. It could have easily been made into a regular length novel.

    THE PERKS OF BEING A BEAUTY by Mandi Collins is a lovely Regency

    THE PERKS OF BEING A BEAUTY by Mandi Collins is a lovely Regency Historical Romance. A novella. #3.5 in "The Ugly Ducklings" series, but can be read as a stand alone. A quick,fast paced story of love disguarded and found again. Well written with engaging and charismatic characters. Filled with passion, past mistakes,past hurts and fears. Join Miss Amelia Snow and Lord Quentin Fortescue on a journey of finding one's self and a story that is filled with regret,forgiveness,healing and love. A lot of story packed into a little book. I enjoyed it immensely! Another hit for this author,who is a wonderful storyteller,and whose storylines are engaging and intriguing. A must read, for the "Ugly Ducklings" are not so ugly after all and beauty is not just about beauty. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.

    Miss Amelia Snowe was once society's reigning beauty but when the death of her mother placed her in financial straits, she was forced to become a lady's companion to another debutant. Lord Quentin Fortescue is the man who loved her and whose proposal she rejected several years ago because her mother thought she could reach higher. They meet again at a house party and discover that their love survived. A sweet little novella.

    This book follows up the three excellent books in her Ugly Duck

    This book follows up the three excellent books in her Ugly Ducklings Trilogy. Miss Amelia Snowe was definitely the villainess of those three books, making life miserable for the heroines by her cruel behavior. In this book she has fallen upon hard times and finds herself reduced to being a companion to the young daughter of a middle class couple. Into her life comes an old friend and onetime beau, Lord Quentin Fortesque. Years before, Amelia had turned down his proposal with an eye to a better catch and he later married someone else. He is now widowed and Amelia knows she is no longer eligible to marry him.
    What I liked about this book was the theme of second chances and being able to redeem oneself for past behavior. Usually when a bad character gets their come-uppance in a book, we never see what happens after or find out why they behaved as they did. In this book, Amelia gets a chance to make amends for her nastiness by helping her charge and others in the household and also to explain to Quentin why she really turned him down. The romance between them is hot even as they both try to protect their hearts. If you read the previous three, you have to read this one. You will also enjoy it even if you didn’t read the others.
    There is a brief glimpse of the heroine of Ms. Collin’s new series in this book. That book, “Why Dukes Say I Do” is due to be published on July 30. I can’t wait for this series to start!
