I think this story would have vastly improved if the author had done some research on English culture and society.

I don't expect a documentary, however, I do want to be able to recognize the era which an author is supposedly writing about. As long as it's within the realms of some form of reality - that would suffice otherwise I'd turn to fantasy fiction.

So it's the cliched Cinderella story of the poor Miss Nobody winning the Heart of a Duke.

I read this book on Wattpad and it was one of my firsts historical romance reads. I absolutely loved this book! The plot was original for this genre and the character interactions were more modern in their feel, which I loved since it gave more depth to the relationships. I could not keep off of the story from when I started to the end (I was lucky enough to read it in one go!) as it was enthralling! I especially ADORED the ending for what it made me feel, but ssshh, saying any more would be tel ...more

Good book if you fancy a quick book, but whilst the characters were developed there were a few times I just wished the plot was more refined and less cliche...but i mean reading a historical romance... what do you expect right?!

Loved it! Not many books from Wattpad are sufficiently written. I really loved reading this book. I never found historical romance to be an interest; however, this one has really caught my attention.

Pros: I really loved the plot and the non-sensual parts of the romance. This author gave breath to 2 fascinating characters. She was able to show the difference between mere lust and true love which I thought was well done.

Cons: I originally thought it would be a historical fiction, and although it was- it was definitely for 18+ readers. & since I have a lot of friends who are younger and that follow me I wouldn't be able to recommend it for that reason.

Overall: I really enjoyed the story; I

This is actually my first historical romance read. And just after that I started liking historical romance stories. It's been good at first but I think the storyline is kinda fast-paced at times. Though the plot is really good!

I thought this was a fun read. There were many comical antics throughout the book. You also get your HEA. I was rather frustrated by some of the characters and did the whole yelling at the book thing. Overall I was very entertained.

This is probably the first book I ever tried on wattpad. This is a excellent historical romance and one of my favorites that I have found that came from wattpad originally.
