The moderate rating is due to the predictability of the storyline and the less than refined writing style.

However, the story is enjoyable and well balanced. It's a bit silly, a bit sexy, a bit romantic and a bit shocking (in a period appropriate sense).

Well worth a quick read.

The many twists and turns in this short novel (eleven chapters) are just a bit too predictable. There is nothing here to make the story stand out from others in the same genre other than references to a traditional Scottish custom for marriage.

Okay short story about a girl, Katrina, who is alone in the world after her father's death and needs a position as a governess. Her father ran a book store and had a secret room of erotic literature. Katrina has read these books, and although she has no sexual experience, she is curious about what she has read. She fixes her attention on Lord Timothy.

Unfortunately there is little character development, so the reader doesn't really know why they are attracted. (1/11/2012)

Re-read in March of 2013.

I really enjoyed Handfasted. I had never heard of this ceremony before and think it should be applied in today's society. The relationship between Lord Timothy and the ever curious Katrina was steamy hot. I have now finished all three of the (To Love a Governess) Novellas. By far, Sacked and Handfasted are my favorite. The fact that this story includes references to books (naughty ones), a lending library, and bookstore made it a great read for me. Would recommend to all Romance fans.

I really enjoyed this novella and the slightly nerdy hero (plus the heroine was great as well).

Out of boredom on a long road trip she borrowed her older sister’s historical romance and fell in love with reading. She long ago lost ...more
