Tired of being paraded before every eligible bachelor, Peony Whistleby decides it's time to find her true love - through the ancient custom of rolling naked in the dew on May Day morning.

When you need a quick fix story to keep your attention for an hour or so, or however long it takes to read 59 pages, you want to find an Undone by Barbara Monajem.

Why?

This novella parallels Bewitched by His Kiss. The two romances overlap, with one novella centering on each couple. May Day magic unites the two stories, and the question of whether or not to believe in magic threads through both.

These novellas use Regency expressions enough to convey a sense of the period without being overwhelming and are laced with sweet humor as well as high sexual tension that concludes in hot lovemaking. I enjoyed them both.

Barbara Monajem wrote her first story in third grade about apple tree gnomes. After dabbling in neighborhood musicals and teen melodrama, she published a middle-grade fantasy when her children were young. Now her kids are adults, and she's writing historical and paranormal romance for grownups. She lives in Georgia with an ever-shifting population of relatives, friends, and feline strays.
