Former Bow Street Runner, Trevelyan Foxton, is hired to locate a missing heiress only to learn that the woman who holds the key to her disappearance is his former lover. Years after leaving the love of her life, Estelle Desjardins, works as a dressmaker and aids young women on the side. Now her past has caught up with her and the secrets she has kept for so long are about to be revealed…

Despite its brevity, this novella is well-written and succinct, and the character development is

Shelves: erotica, regency
Very nicely crafted Regency novella, complete with atypical characters who have come from very difficult backgrounds to recreate themselves as respectable members of society. Intriguing connection between a Bow Street Runner and a dressmaker who has a sideline of her own. Great as a compact tale peopled with interesting characters, would be even nicer as a novel.

I love this series. There are 3 sisters. If you know me, you know I love to read about sisters and family dynamics. Of course, the men are hot. Sharon Page never disappoints.
I’ve read a few books by Sharon Page and she’s form e one of those who writes lots of average easy reads with nice characters and a lovely development. I think, I got it via Amazon a couple of months ago for free.
The main characters aren’t aristocratic in this novel but know each other for many years without having contact for most of it. They kind of grew up together, fell in love, spent one passionate night together.
Former Bowstreet Runner Foxton works as a private investigator nowadays and
It was a good novella, but had the potential to become an even better novel.

The fact is, the story was too short and there wasn't enough time to relate pr get to know the characters.

I have always enjoyed Miss Page's books. her character's are well-built and have potential. This was a very quick read and I finished this in like 2 hours.

I like books I can connect with, laugh and cry with. But, this unfortunately was not one of those.

The plot itself was very good. But was rushed. The best thing I
Here's the thing - it is tough to create a proper build up of passion in a novella. At least that is what I have found. That said I thought this story was flat like 2 day old soda. There was a lot of potential but not enough time/ space/ words to really delve into the history between these two characters. All of the sudden he just walks back into her life and they have apparently been living in the same neighborhood for years. And there are other points like that throughout the story but I don't ...more

Sally Thomas or Estelle Desjrdins as she is now known married Lyan Foxton when they were very young. I wasn't actually a legal marriage and she ran away from him soon after the "marriage" was consummated. It is 10 years later and Lyan is now a bow street runner. He is investigating a case when he again runs into Sally. This is a short well written love story with a bit of hot sex. I enjoyed it and will be reading more from this fun author.

Very short and fast paced second chance story. Different from the average historical romance with two characters from poor pasts that earn their livings and a Bow street runner that becomes an earl. Love the characters and the plot with the side drama of a missing girl. I imagine that most men would not be as accepting as Lyan was about the 10 year secret Estelle kept from him. Other than that it was a fun & very quick read.

3.5 stars. I enjoyed this novella - good writing and engaging story. Something a little different from the rest.

In my opinion however, it would have fared better as a full length novel as there was so much going on in the plot that I felt the author sped through everything that happened a little too quickly. I have another book to read from this author and I look forward to it.
Estelle and Trevelyan meet again after 10 years. Will Lyan be able to forgive and forget or is he back for revenge? I enjoyed this short story and the characters. Would enjoy reading more about their lives together now and how they got some of those ten years back....
Lusty regency era historical romance, perfect short story for a hot summer day.
A short story which was very enjoyable. One of those shorts that, if it could have been longer, it would have made a cracking "sinful" novel.

A pleasant novella. Story was a little too pat. Not a lot of character development.
