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.

    Great intro to this writers wit and style. Not in in depth novel but a short but interesting one with some previews of other books in the series. Certainly worth the money.

    Loved this story and the hero/heroine. She had backbone and he had a heart. The story is better than my description of course.

    Pretty good, but

    Honestly, did there have to be a sex scene? It's a novella. Develop more plot and leave the more intimate scenes to a book where it doesn't blindside you when there're only five pages left of a book that's not that much longer.

    Eloisa does it again!

    I have loved every one of her books and this is no exception. It is abit short for my taste since I love to get to know the characters inside and out. With that being said this is a book you won't pur down unril you finish it.

    Short and sweet.

    Nice short story. The couple of the story learn much about themselves as they fall in love. Enjoyed it. For those who want a look at some of the authors books, there are a few chapters to read from them.

    addicting author

    After reading this book I have bought everything this author has published. I find here writing style refreshing and enjoyable. Putting myself in the main characters shoes as I read , I found myself blushing and giggling alt at once.
    This book is light on the sex but heavy on the heart thumping romance.

    Very sweet short story,

    The hero in the story was pretty dense but came out all right in the end. The heroine kinda went on about her height and looks a little too much throughout the whole story. But it did have a nice ending.
