This felt like a similar read to another novella of the author's, Scandalous Lord Dere. They both feature a hero and heroine who were childhood friends that have been secretly or latently in love with each other for the past estranged decade. In both stories the hero showed this by running off, panicked, into the world to gain experience, sophistication and a scandalous reputation. Meanwhile the heroine locks herself up in sexual stasis despite having previously proven herself to be sexually cur ...more

This is a short and sweet novella, with no unnecessary drama or unreasonably stubborn characters. I enjoyed both the hero and heroine, and would be up for reading Lydia's sister Tabitha's book if she gets one.

An okay romance novella. I didn't particularly care too much for the circumstances of why the hero ran off, but told myself to wind down from romance-angst and just go with the flow. Once I did that, I enjoyed much of the story....until Rogue tried proposing marriage to Lydia. Ugh, I hate the "NO I WON'T MARRY YOU BECAUSE YOU DON'T LOVE ME" hysteria. Just makes me want to bitchslap the heroines.

I wasn't expecting Shakespeare so I enjoyed this little short romance...a bit more sex then some of hers especially with the length. Their past was where the romance developed and so we had to imagine that. Short and sweet and only about an hour to read. .99 cents is a good price for this one on Kindle. Its good to take a reality break and enjoy a bit of romance and Victorian age.

A very short novella, only 5 chapters.
'Rogue Gerrard' fell in love with a childhood friend when he was only 22 (and she was only 16) this terrified him, and he set off to live the life of a rake. A chance encounter with said friend sets in motion their reapproachment.

As usual with Stephanie's books very well written. Lots of romance and heat set in Historical England. With this author's books, the slower you read and the more you concentrate, the better they are.
