Miss Catherine Hooks is one of the best governesses in all of England; her employer, the Right Honorable Edward Glennon, is one of the busiest men. The fact that they’ve fallen in love is immaterial. Honorable people in their situation do not mention such things. But Edward’s son is on the verge of leaving for school, and when Cat asks for the only thing she can demand under the circumstances—a reference and help finding a new position—she discovers that even a right honorable gentleman has his limits…
A Right Honorable Gentleman is a short story of about 7,000 words long, and was previously available in the anthology “Premiere.”

About the Author
Courtney Milan’s debut novel was published in 2010. Since then, her books have received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Booklist. She’s been a RITA® finalist and an RT Reviewer’s Choice nominee for Best First Historical Romance. Her second book was chosen as a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2010. Courtney lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, a marginally-trained dog, and an attack cat. Courtney wishes she could say she has lived in numerous fabulous places. But aside from her husband, there is a distinct lack of fabulousness in her life. Instead, she is happy when standards in the Milan household hover above mediocrity. Her husband attempts not to kill people for a living. In exchange, Courtney attempts not to do the dishes. Before she started writing historical romance, Courtney experimented with various occupations: computer programming, dog-training, scientificating... Having given up on being able to do any of those things, she's taken to heart the axiom that those who can't do, teach. When she's not reading (lots), writing (lots), or sleeping (not enough), she can be found in the vicinity of a classroom.

24 pages! That's all! I've liked Courtney Milans' book, in fact; I've bought numerous series. This is not a cliffhanger. I didn't think twice before paying a buck for this so called book . Did I mention that I liked Courtney Milans books? What infuriates me is: am I going to buy this sub standard book by chapter? I'm MOST DISAPPOINTED that I can no longer buy her book without hesitation.
A charming short story (24 pages—7,000 words) taking place at a critical time, the ending of an employment situation. The gruff Edward never analyzed how he was comforted by Catherine’s presence and didn’t ponder how he admired her before she announced her job was ending and she would be leaving. But as such an important man, he could not admit it to himself or to her that he may have feelings for an employee. Okay, just refuse to give her a letter of recommendation and indefinitely delay her departure, right? Wrong. Then there is a twist. Will they ever find an HEA? This is a great little read for someone in a hurry to get to the ending or when you don’t have a lot of time. It is not a cliffhanger or just an introduction into a series of books. Maybe to the author and her style of writing, detailed, and well-written. Enjoyable read!
