    Friends In Need!

    Amelia, although a strong woman, is faced with a desperate and heartbreaking situation. She turns to the one person whom she trusts implicitly for help and hopes that he will listen to her appeal and free her from her plight before she is trapped in a loveless and possibly abusive marriage forever.

    This story is set in a time when women had little say about whom they married. They were seen more as bargaining tools and artifacts to insure ones rise insure ones rise in society and wealth. A time when merging families was seen as a wise move, never caring whether the men and women loved one another.

    My heart soared when I learned of Spencer's true feelings, as will yours. If asked what one thing stuck with me after reading this story, it would be never underestimate the friendship which has developed slowly over the years when one's heart is concerned.

    I look forward to reading more of Ms. Conner's work.

    Not a book - more like a poorly written class paper.

    The story is over after the first couple of pages. Of course, the whole thing is only a few pages long. Don' t waste your money.

    About 30 pages

    Could have been a full length book. Pretty good premise but just a synopsis more than a short story. Not even hot sex.

    Never got to the starting Line

    This is potentially a great story, however, it is only 15 pages long. Shame on you guys calling this a story. In my business, we call this an idea.

    Cute short story

    There was just enough of the story to understand the characters and their dilemma. The information didn't seem forced even though it was short. It was very sweet.

    Awful

    Thirty pages of nondescriptive writting. IF the writter was given a word cap..it worked. It capped my attention and did not keep my interest. It DOES read like a 12 year old wrote it. No continuity.

    Highly Recommended -Short and Sweet

    Amelia goes to see the Duke,Spencer at 1:a.m. in the morning.She had to ask for his advise. She didn't want anyone to know about this. The other man, Brenton wanted to marry her because of the power her family will bring him.She has to be a virgin tho.After she is with child, he will not touch her again. He does not love her.He loves another woman with Big breast. He also threatened to harm her too. She wants Spencer to spoil her so she won't be a virgin anymore. Then Brenton will not have her..
