SHORT, SWEET, AND SEXY!!

Lucy is a tall, long stemmed, English beauty convinced that she is a wallflower because of her height. Despite her insecurities, she is betrothed to the delicious, but distant Mr. Ravenscroft, who has his own agenda and suffers from his own set of different insecurities...
Lucy is a tall, long stemmed, English beauty convinced that she is a wallflower because of her height. Despite her insecurities, she is betrothed to the delicious, but distant Mr. Ravenscroft, who has his own agenda and suffers from his own set of different insecurities. When Lucy suddenly inherits a fortune, her mother is convinced that her daughter can do better in the marriage mart and wants Lucy to break her betrothal. Lucy is already halfway in love with Ravenscroft, but she does throw him over for her own reasons. She wants love in life and in her marriage; Ravenscroft seems clueless about love. Of course, this makes Ravenscroft see Lucy in a whole new light and makes it his priority to win over the wallflower. This lovely novella has the potential to make you an Eloisa James addict. This is not a bad thing! I've been addicted from her very first novel "Potent Pleasures' **Also noteworthy, is the fact that this novella introduces the female protagonist of Eloisa James' next novel in her "Fairy Tale" series: Olivia Lytton in "The Duke is Mine." (December 27th release)

Not very good

I did not like this book. James is one of those authors that feels the need to repeat herself throughout the book. I get it... the main female character is tall and hates it... I get it... the main male character is very, very, very handsome (aren't they all?). I got it...

I get it... the main male character is very, very, very handsome (aren't they all?). I got it the first time you introduced them, no need to repeat it a solid 15 times more.
