Lovely story about love at first sight and second chances.

For a short story this was a pretty good work. However nowhere in the description did it mention that this was a novella or short story. i thought that I was getting a full length novel and was sorely disappointed that I had paid $2.99 for it. I could see where it might be worth .99, but I felt cheated.

Sir James Carling returns from an extended visit in the Americas to find that his siblings have married him off.at least if the story is to be believed. Much to his delight, his new wife is none other than the sensuous woman who snared his attention years earlier. After a disastrous mistake that turned society against her, Pompeia Grant agrees to portray the errant knight's wife in exchange for a few nights' shelter and food. Now, can she avoid her wanton nature when faced with the man she's dreamed about for four years? This was such a great story that was a quick, fun read. James and Pompeia both fight the attraction each feel, but have to learn to overcome society's expectations as well as their own misconceptions to find their future together. A story that leaves your heart sighing and your face smiling. Truly a story of love at first sight getting a second chance. This story is definitely worth a read!
