There were a few plot issues I had to overlook. The main one being the heroine inviting the hero to live with her after only two days acquaintance. Even engaged I can't see how this could ever have been acceptable during the Regency, BUT in the end I truly enjoyed this story and will look forward to reading others in this series.

It was interesting and unusual for a Regency dealing with the aftermath of the war, but there were so many issues from fertility to age difference that the falling in love part got left behind like a romantic montage on a romance movie.

Although it's very short compared to other stories in the anthology, Three Heroes, I love the characters and the basis of the story. This is definitely one of my favorites!
I couldn't handle another page. It's quite short, easy to read but hard for me to take in.

I cannot handle reading a woman in her 30s talking about romance (not the sweet stuff, I'm telling you) for a man a lot younger than she is.

Out of all men she could choose from, it had to be someone younger than her!

I can't help but wonder whether this is just the author's fantasy of her own. X_X
An interesting and more complex relationship between the two main characters although somewhat fanciful.
I am normally not big on novellas, but my one regret with this one was that I wish it was longer because I loved the characters too much to let go - the pragmatic heroine and the wounded (but awesome) hero are totally incredible together.
THis was quite short (less than 100 pages) but sweet. A woman who doesn't want to fall in love with a younger man (8 years) and an younger man who does fall in love with an older woman.

Cortito pero bueno, no se que prejuicio se tenga a que la mujer sea mayor que el hombre, el amor es amor sea cual sea la edad, no existe un criterio que separe el amor por edades

It has a good storyline. However, despite the good premise, the story was too short. It lacked a further development of the plot and characters.

Van is an amazing tortured hero and Maria is a surprising match to heal him, but ohmigod do they work together!! And the sex is so HOT!

I like this story. Jo Beverely doesn't gloss over the wounds of war (which aren't always physical). Goo pairing.
Very good story: short and sweet with gentle handling of age difference between hero and older heroine.
Short and hot!
