This was a lovely, sweet, funny short story, sort of like a miniature Regency Romance. I loved it. (And unlike another reviewer, I was not surprised it was a short story. The title, the description, and the cover all state clearly that it is a short story.) Highly recommended.

This is a delightful romp in the Regency era and is a great stress reducer! The characters are real and the book grabs your interest right away. It's delightful to see the twists and turns of this story. I was sorry to see it end. IF you like period love stories and something light is what you're needing--this is for you.

Even though the story was short, it was well done. I found myself cheering the characters on. A fun read if you have an hour to kill.

About short stories. Not many of them are worth to read . This one is thoroughly enjoyable . Well-known, A.Chekhov and O.Wild, who are considered to be among the greatest writers of short fiction , acknowledged this style of writing as exhausting burden that requires much effort . I would like to give Candice Hern the applause for this short story . She provided just the right description of details that helps us to be involved . At the same time, each character is so real and well portrayed , the dialogs are so vivid that the book can't be put down until it's finished . Thank you . G.K.

This is one of those books that will not leave your hands. I loved the part where the character Lydia makes Geoffrey jealous. Ms. Hern is going to have a wonderful following of readers.
