I'm not one to complain that a novella or short story is "too short." After all, limited length is what one expects from those formats, and I'm a big believer that 'trimming the literary fat' can make for a more engaging, tightly plotted and smoothly paced read. Restless readers like I am are far less likely to tire of a well-written, imagination-stimulating novella than those unnecessarily bloated 400+ page, "ugh, this AGAIN? We GET it already!" novels.

The thing is, this story felt like it was

This novella by the always-dependable Carlyle manages to pack full servings revenge and romance in half the normal length. Our hero seeks revenge for his younger sister, who was seduced by a fortune hunter and killed herself. This is how his path cross with a lovely, common-sense young widow who is the fortune hunter's next target. It takes place over a relatively short span and in pretty much one setting (a house party) but, as with Duran's novella, there is nothing I'd improve except for wishi ...more

Estava gostando, mesmo com o insta-love (acho que é meio requisito para o romance histórico, geralmente tem), mas depois não parecia tanto "amor", mas sim luxúria. E perto do final, foi uma confusão de pensamentos que me deixou um pouco sem saco para o draminha.
Não foi ruim, dei algumas risadas, mas deixou a desejar no final.

This originally was found in the anthology Tea for Two, so if you have already read that, no need to get this. I realize that authors need to get paid, but I'm usually irritated when purchasing what seems to be a new short story only to find out I already own it in the original anthology.

Loved every minute of the book if only there were more. The book deserves to be longer than a short story and Christian and Elise really do make a great couple!

A terrific novella -- everything you want/expect in a longer romance (great dialogue, sharp characters, plenty of conflict), and all done up with style.

Nice little novella with good writing and a good story. Christian is one those rakish heroes---healed/changed by a good woman. Elise was lonely and needed the jolt he could give her live.

Dear Readers,

The awful truth about novelists is that we are mostly dull, introverted homebodies who only write in order to live our fantasies vicariously. I came to writing rather late in life, and I’m still amazed I can get paid for doing something I love, and that I get to stay home while I do it.

My favorite comedian Steve Martin once said, "I believe entertainment can aspire to be art, and ca
