Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Two people who have know each for years. One in love, the other not so much. Conviencing the reluctant takes some doing but all is well in the end. Book is too short. Many pages of the author's next stories.
Anna Campbell saved the best for last with Helena's story that also includes Fenella & Anthony and Caroline & Silas. Helena fell in love with Vernon Grange, her older brother's best friend and a neighbor at a very early age. As her brother's friend, he didn't do more than kiss her before he left for Oxford. She then fell for Crewe and insisted on marrying him despite her family's hesitance. She had the worst marriage of the three Dashing Widows and does not want to marry again. But Vernon never stopped loving her and is determined to win her. He knows her and how to tempt her. I won't ruin the love story that unfolds with all of the couples gathered at her childhood home for her brother's wedding. Novellas are too short for plot spoilers. I can easily recommend this one!
