Well. This just isn't at all good.

I was immediately on my guard when I read a mistake in the first chapter; the stepmother of the heroine first curtsies to two gentlemen, but later "bows". No. Not only is it inconsistent, it's wrong. But I trudged on. Sometimes people make mistakes, but the story still turns out fairly enjoyable.

This one could have been enjoyable, despite its many typos and inconsistencies. And it probably would have been good...had not the heroine, Calista, been the dumbest t
This was a nice quick read. I found the heroine Calista a little TOO reserved for my taste. Talk about someone with SEVERSE insecurity and self-esteem issues. Gee wiz…it was starting to sound not just annoying but pathetic. I don’t like when the heroine is too awkward and insecure that she can’t even stand up for herself. Then all of a sudden she finds her backbone and turns her wrath upon a Duke…her husband father…so now it just doesn’t really seem right…it seems completely out of character for ...more
Sally Quilford has done her research well; this is not her usual genre of fiction, and while this Regency romance novella does not quite have the natural authenticity of (say) Georgette Heyer, it reads realistically, on the whole.. The characters are very nicely drawn, and the conversations believable.

My biggest problem with this book is that it’s too short. There were, I felt, sufficient subplots and themes to have made this a full-length novel; as it was, some plot threads are resolved too qui

This was a very sweet regency romance. Could have benefited from a bit more editing, some typos/mistakes but not bad enough to spoil the story. I must admit I did find the heroine, Calista, came across a bit too insecure/self-deprecating - a bit of doubt was obviously necessary for the story but by the end you were kind of wanting to shake her! It was nice to finally see her grow a bit of backbone at the end though and stand up for herself. I also found the step-sister a little too one-dimension ...more

A little bit of poison. A little bit of mystery. A little bit of confusion. And of course it had a little bit of love. It all started with a highway man to set off a chain of events. Something good can come from something bad regardless of the bumpy road along the way. Worth reading and well written.

Ok, so 4 stars is generous, but I don't want to discourage everyone from reading it. It was sweet. The editing was terrible--as in, I don't think anyone edited it. At all. (I read the Kindle version.) But the story was good, and if you're looking for entertainment in the form of a Regency romance, it will do the trick.
Silly book for teenagers to love!
A shallow bit of fluff.

$.99 on Amazon for Kindle.
I thought the story was sweet. It was an entertaining book--just what I look for when I'm wanting to "escape" for a few minutes or even hour or two. My biggest complaint are the many typographical errors--some were inconsistencies in the story, but most were just mistyped words. (I purchased as an e-book.) I would be interested to read another book by this author.
