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.
