Overview

Adelaide Bruce was just a girl in braids when her brother's best friend, Naval Captain Lord Drayton, left for war. Now, five years later, Lord Drayton has returned to London with hideous battle scars that have made him a social pariah. Adelaide doesn't see Roan's wounds, but rather the man she has always secretly loved. Although she has been courted by a handsome lord with marriage on his mind, it is Roan she secretly desires.

Roan is stunned when he is reacquainted with Addy Bruce. In the years that have passed, Addy has grown into a true beauty and the toast of the ton. He is not sure which surprises him more—her transformation, or the fact she is the only woman who treats him as though his scars do not exist. When Roan learns of Addy’s engagement to a rival, he must move fast…or lose her forever.

    Sooooo Romantic! A wonderful read!

    More! More!! I wasn't ready for it to be over!!
    What a wonderful short story! Addy has loved her older brother's best friend Roan since she was young. When he returns from war he is scarred both inside and out. But she sees him with the eyes of love.
    Although for some the story may seem predictable. For me it was tender and romantic and thoroughly satisfying! :)

    Not Bad

    Review Copy Provided by Purchased for Pleasure

    Addy has loved Roan since she was a young girl, she now wishes to prove to him when he comes back as a war hero whose visage has changed because of the war. I loved their interactions with each other. It was refreshing to see the heroine go after what she wants. Roan being the damaged hero cannot believe that Addy who is beautiful and of marriageable age would want him. The story had a lot of angst and jealousy which I loved and thought helped move the story along to what one wishes the obvious conclusion to be.

    I could not put this short read down and read it quite quickly. I liked it, until the end which I felt left too much unsaid and too much not done. I found myself wishing that there was more to the story. This is the only reason I am giving this story a Rose in Bloom rating.

    This book had so much potential that I felt it wasn’t tapped in such a short read. I love Julia Templeton and I did like the book. But by the end of the book I felt that something was missing, that more could have been said. The story though is a good one. I think some would like it as is. I guess I just expected a bit more. But…for a short read, sometimes this is how it is done. It has HEA, which pleased me, I just felt we needed more to get to know more about the characters.

    Other Notes: Please note: LITTLE MISS INDEPENDENT is a short novella that was originally published in THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF REGENCY ROMANCE.

    I am a very very big fan of Julie Templeton and love her work. I liked this book it was very sweet but it didn't feel like her best. The story is about Roan and Addy, Roan has return of the war with battle scars to his neck, cheeks and hands cause by fire, the very once handsome Roan isn't the talk of the town anymore because of this as everyone look at him now as a monster, he is also Addy's brother best friend. Addy for me as lovable as I found her she was very young at 18 though she is young she knows what she wants and go after it and it is Roan. Again I liked it it was a quick, light, sweet and cute read but I personally believe not the author's best. I love the author for her hot steamy love making but they say never assume but I will assume there was no steamy love making because Addy was so young, but without all that i would still encourage the read to readers.
