    Enjoyed The Character Interactions

    After her second sister, Louise, excepts a position as governess up north, Eve takes her oldest sister Josephine’s advice to accept a friend’s invitation for Christmas. She doesn’t want to leave Josephine alone but it will be an excellent opportunity to take advantage of her friend Margaret’s excellent connections. The three sisters, great granddaughters of the Earl of Priorsbridge, have been struggling financially since their father died. Louise is now a governess, and Josephine an accountant. They want Eve to make an excellent match and so are saving to give her a Season. With Margaret’s family connections she may be able to meet the right man. Not wanting to leave her sister alone for the holiday, but understanding the potential benefits of the visit, Eve sets off by mail coach for Haversham. Arriving half an hour earlier than expected and with the weather quickly turning, Eve decides to walk to Margaret’s house rather than wait. She sets off toward the lights in the distance and arrives, not at the Haversham home, but at the home of the Earl of Ravensworth. Bryce, the Earl of Ravensworth is immediately struck and completely dazed upon first glimpse of Eve. Gathering himself together he offers her hospitality until his coach can be made ready to take her to her friends home. Disaster strikes when they realise the road has become impassible and Eve must stay the night. Enjoyed The Character Interactions As one night turns into several while they are snowed in, I enjoyed how the characters interacted and became drawn to each other. The author seems to effortlessly throw you into the world of the characters and make you want to stay there. This is the second in the series of “The Honourable Scoundrels”, and I cant wait to read the third, The Duke Who Came To Town. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the novella provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

    Charming but a little light on substance.

    This is a charming Regency novella. Eve, the youngest of three well-born but impoverished sisters, is the only one of them with a chance to still have a Season and make a good match. On her way to visit with a well-connected friend, she mis-identifies her destination and arrives on the wings of a gathering snowstorm at the home of the Earl of Ravenworth and is trapped there by ice on the roads. Ravenworth is a delightful hero; cruelly isolated from the world because of somebody else’s unworthy actions, he could easily take out his frustrations on Eve, but chooses instead to treat her gently. The resolution to their dilemma is obvious, and this being a novella, comes without unnecessary drama. This is a short and enjoyable read, though I did find a few modern phrases and anachronisms which a Regency purist would condemn - Eve being tucked up under a ‘duvet’ was one example, the duvet not being popularised in use until the twentieth century. For this reason, I can’t give the book five stars, but it’s certainly a solid four. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review through NetGalley.
