If you like a quick but great read this book will be a great read. I was able to finish it in a day and loved every minute of it. This is the first Historical Romance that I have read and really enjoyed it because K. Webster was able to bring in the feel of what it would be like to live through this time but she also kept an edge to the story. So, because of this I have fallen in love with Historical Romance. K. Webster has a way of keeping you involved in what is happening with each character and making you want more. Becoming Lady Thomas has everything from great twists to sexy chemistry. There are also many intriguing parts that have you wondering what is going to happen and also make you love and hate the characters. Elisabeth has had her life plan set since falling in love with William. However, she had to what for him to complete his 4 years of University. When he returns with her father and sister Edith they deliver news that may just change her plans for the future. The news is that her father has agreed to have his large debt taken care of by Lord Thomas. However, what Lord Thomas wants may destroy the family. How will Elisabeth survive when Lord Thomas comes to get his payment for the debt owed? Lord Jasper Thomas knows what he wants and always gets what he wants. This time what he wants isn't a thing but a who. How will he be able to convince this person that they are meant to be together even if her hand is forced into the situation. Will Jasper be able to convince Elisabeth that even though she was forced into the situation that the sparks that she is trying to fight are for real? Received an ARC for an honest review but immediately purchased this book after reading it.

I was given a copy for my honest review. I loved this book. The characters and the story was great. No spoilers, however, I will say that William got what he desired. I highly recommend this historical romance.

Wow! K. Webster has stepped out of the box and jumped into the world of historical romance. It’s not easy to make that transition but she has done a fantastic job. This is the first book is a novella series and I can’t wait for the rest! Elisabeth is in love with her childhood sweetheart. He is sweet, loving, and kind. Although, when he left for school and didn’t return as promised, it put a strain on relationship. But, now he is back, ready to take the next step with her. Something has changed, but Elisabeth doesn’t think much on it, rather she simply accepts the path she has laid out for herself, convinced it will make her happy. Jaz is a law unto himself. He answers to nobody, rules with complete control, and takes what he wants. Confronting a man that owes him money, he glimpses a portrait of his three daughter. Now, it’s Elisabeth that he wants and he is determined to have her. In exchange for erasing his debt the man offers up Jaz pick of his daughters to marry.  Elisabeth never imagines that he would choose her, so when he makes his choice clear, she is shocked and desperate to escape. Jaz is intimidating, handsome, and he makes her feel things that are foreign and seem, well, quite naughty. Her attempts to avoid him are futile as he simply scoops her up and installs her into his home. Their relationship is so much fun to read as it grows. These two volley for power in a war of words, however Elisabeth is quickly losing her footing because her body seems to be on Jaz’s side. This is a novella and therefore a very quick read. I could have read an entire full length novel about these two. Their story is engaging, funny, and full of passion and fire. In the end, despite the fabulous HEA, I was sad to see them go. However, hopefully I’ll get to revisit them from time to time in the next two books of the series.  K. Webster has done a fabulous job breaking out of her typical genre and I applaud her for taking the risk and succeeding so beautifully.

I absolutely fell in love with this story and all of it's characters!!! K Webster never ceases to amaze me with her writing. This is a steamy read that had me hooked from page one all the way to the end. I could not wait to find out how the story was going to end for Elizabeth and Jasper. Elizabeth thinks that she has found her one and only true love, William. She waits for him while he finishes 4 years of college and longs for the day of his return. Once he returns with her sister, Edith and their father, William plans on making Elizabeth his wife until her father delivers the news of a debt he owes. They have no money to pay the debt back so their father has made an agreement with Lord Thomas to give him on of his daughters in repayment. Only one stipulation scares Elizabeth, Lord Thomas gets to choose who he wants as his wife. Elizabeth does everything in her power to not turn Lord Thomas's head but what she doesn't know is that his mind is already made up before he even meets any of the daughter's. The attraction between Lord Thomas and Elizabeth is unmistakable!! You can feel their desire, their lust and their love for each other coming off of the pages. K Webster has a way to make you feel such a part of her stories that you forget that you are reading a story and feel like you are a part of the character's everyday lives. No Author has ever made me feel the connection to the characters as K Webster does. I can not wait for the other stories in this series. I will be stalking K Webster until these come out. Such a great steamy, quick read!!! I was given a copy for my honest review!

First of all my pet peeve is a when a books sentences are always start with I this I that...and always talking like there telling you the story of what there doing...really you can't just tell a story, I want to get sucked in to it, feel like I'm there...not feel like some annoying person is sitting in front of me telling me what happened....nothing about this book is even worth a minute of your time...this is not erotic , it was annoying and not worth it...I would rather have a tooth pulled then read this auther again..

It's been years since I've read a historical romance, I usually read paranormals.  This book brough the genre back to my to be read list.  This book has it all an over the top alpha male, spunky heroine and enough sexual tension to melt your e-reader!  I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
