Overview

A romantic short story, set in Regency London.

At twenty-eight, Miss Helen Worth is on the shelf and stranded at the altar by a man she didn’t choose. Never one to follow convention, Helen puts a brave face on her humiliation and defiantly sallies forth into society—and discovers love in the one place she never expected to find it.

Edmond Manwaring had always loved Helen Worth—he was infatuated with her even as a boy. Now that he’s a grown man, every other woman he meets pales beside his memory of Helen. He’s determined to discover if Helen is truly as warm-hearted and beautiful as he remembered, or was she just an ideal woman born of his childhood imagination? Edmond thinks he’ll find the answer to his question as soon as he renews his acquaintance with Helen. All it will take is one dance with her and he’ll know for certain.

    I liked the hero

    Edmond was a delight to read about but Helen, it was hard to like her and considering Edmond doesnt come until a little later in this short book its surprising. First, I didnt like how she succumbed to her father's wishes after she insisted on marrying for love yet quickly changed her mind (this was my first disappointment - especially since her father, who valued her opinion would have stopped insisting she finally marry had she put her foot down more strongly). Then when her fiance breaks it off, even though she doesnt love him acts as she did and hides from society. It isnt until her aunt insist she holds her head up high and venture out into society that she does. Then she tries her best to stay away from re-meeting her childhood tormentor without given him a proper second chance as if people cant change - he was a teenager then for crying out loud. Then she goes on to assume so many silly things when she finally does get re-acquainted with him. I just didnt care for her happiness. The potential was there though, I liked the idea that he is younger, has always liked her but didnt know how to get her attention so he teased her. I like that even though he had teased her, when his mother passed away Helen protected him against other tormentors. I also like that Edmond stay true to his thinking and kept his promise to his mother - the same promise Helen had made to her mother by the way - of only marrying for love. I liked that Edmond was a gentleman but kept the wicked humor of his childhood - he is a hero worth reading about. Overall though I thought the heroine was just ok and so this was just an ok read for me.

    Sweet Regency and a Good Read

    I enjoyed ONE DANCE WITH YOU. It's a sweet Regency that's suitable for all ages. It features a heroine who is jilted by her fiancee and then finds herself falling for a slightly younger man who pestered her constantly when they were teens.

    Enjoyable but lacking as well.

    Overall I found the story to have great potential but to be sorely under developed. It is a quick read you will enjoy. However you will end up thinking it was more a great outline than the actual finished product.
