Overview

As the niece of an earl, Elizabeth Abbington knows all about the stifling expectations and responsibilities placed upon peers of the realm. She has no desire to marry into that kind of life. Instead, she dreams of traveling abroad where she can put her talent for languages to good use. When her dear friend invites her on a trip to Spain, Libby jumps at the chance to begin her adventure.

After his younger brother loses a small fortune on the turn of a card, Philip Dain, Duke of Gillingham decides an intervention is in order. Determined to keep Nigel from falling into the lifestyle that ultimately destroyed their father, Philip offers a deal: if his brother can live in anonymity for a month with him in Spain, Philip will pay his debts outright. By stripping them of the privileged status they’ve always known and the negative influence of Nigel’s friends, Philip hopes the trip will help turn his brother around.

What Philip didn’t expect is how much he would relish the freedom of shedding his title, if only for a while. When his lack of understanding of the language becomes an issue, Libby comes to his aid. As she falls into the role of their informal interpreter, Libby sees the real him, which makes the growing attraction between them all the more heady. But as love blossoms under the Spanish sun, so too does his uncertainty of what will happen when she discovers she’s been . . . Deceived by a Duke.

    Sweet but over too soon for my enjoyment

    This was a very cute romance; however I think the novella format was too small for the emotions to shine through. Phillip and Libby were cute characters and I enjoyed watching them interact outside of all the pressures of London society or their family responsibilities. Unfortunately their courtship was relegated to a meeting scene, a few chapters of a chaperoned excursion into the city, then a couple of sentences mentioning they had been spending a few hours together for the next two weeks. Considering the set-up for the story is the aloof duke finding the one woman he could be himself around I really wanted more of that time with them together.

    I did like how this ties into the other novellas in the series and it was nice to see or hear about the previous couples. I love Erin Knightley’s books and I feel this story could have been better served as a full length so we could see their love blossoming rather than just knowing it was there.
