When I read a novella, I still expect it to contain a good story. From what I could gather, The Duchess of Love is a small prequel and the namesake of Sally MacKenzie’s new series - the Duchess of Love is actually the mother of the hero in the first book, Bedding Lord Ned. The story was somewhat cute, and a little funny, but it left me unsatisfied. I think the problem for me was the age of the hero. Younger heroes are a harder sell for me, and I just couldn’t buy into the young Andrew, Duke of Greycliffe. He felt a little immature to me, and in my mind was a poor hero to the vibrant meddling Venus. The one thing it did accomplish, and I’m sure it was part of the goal, was introduce Venus, the future Duchess of Love, as an interesting character I’d like to see again, and one who likes to meddle in bringing others together.
