Glad it was free
I was apprehensive about this 80 or so page book by chapter but since it was free; I figured I'd give it a try. I found it to be full of intrigue and was; as a result,a page turner. This a well written, short novel and I do recommend it So, in the words of ShelleyMA " you should all read.......blah, blah blah" ( lol) Seriously, this a good book and no one paid me to say so.
I am reviewing "ShelleyMA's" review. Do us a favor and stop leaving the same rediculous review on every single book you read! You are positively annoying! Your "review" does not pertain to the books and makes no sense at all, especially when you are the first one to post..... Give it up please!
This historical romance has legs! *Book source ~ Free on Smashwords Lady Katherine Henschel, Duchess of Jarvis, was back in London after two years of exile in Scotland. Exile for breaking the 11th Commandment of the ton; Thou shalt not get caught. And caught she was by her husband while she was in bed with Simon Delacourt. After Jarvis’ petition for divorce was not granted by Parliament, Katherine retreated to Scotland, still his wife, but shunned by Society. She would have stayed in Scotland except Jarvis died and she was required to present herself for the reading of the will. She hadn’t expected to see Simon there nor was she prepared for the generosity shown to her by her husband. She no longer need worry about how she and her daughter would live, but worrying about her reactions to Simon are another thing entirely. Why does she still burn for the man responsible for her fall? And will Simon confess what he knows about that fateful day even if it makes her hate him even more? This is an awesome historical story with romance, fierce attraction and betrayal. The characters are very well-developed and the story moves along at a great clip. My only complaint is they seem to swing wildly from one emotion to another without much time to transition. I know this is a short story that was originally produced in separate monthly installments for InD’tale Magazine, so space was short, but I wish they didn’t hop around emotionally so much, like a leap frog. That’s my only complaint though. If you want a short historical tale with some meat to it then I recommend picking this one up.
You people should just read this novel yourselves and write your own review on this novel. I really enjoyed reading this short novel very much. ShelleyMA
