    Good Story Told In Nicely Succinct Novella

    This story is about a duke and an opera singer who fall in love. There is some intrigue, some treason and some action. I've read many a regency romance novel that used a simple storyline like this, but dragged it out with melodramatic musings, endless pondering of the characters' insecurities, and ultimately, ridiculous reactions by the characters. The wordiness of those novels always bothers me because the author doesn't seem to care that the melodramatic fluff is totally unrealistic. Here, Mia Marlowe has told a great romance in a short span of time. Naturally, given the tempo of the book, there is little obvious development of the main characters' feelings for each other, but there is growth and heartache that is realistic and believable. This is a great basis for a screenplay and would make a great movie.

    Suspenseful! I wish there was an epilogue to wrap up something'

    Suspenseful! I wish there was an epilogue to wrap up something's of her family (don't want to spoil the ending). I didn't like the Duke in the beginning, but did grow to be fond of him. Arabella, had lose morals, which was befitting of Theatre people of the time. There is some sex in this story, but not as descriptive as some romance novels, just know it takes place over one days time, so not the whole story. Worth the $.99, easy and fast read. (ljb)
