I liked these two as a couple and wish this one could have been drawn out more.

Dorinda, Dorinda, what a name!

This super quickie novella (if it could even be considered such), only 4 chapters long is set shortly thereafter the events of the Book Two in the Duke's Men series with Lisette, Duchess of Lyons doing a little bit of matchmaking. She's decided to matchmake her impoverished cousin and newly widowed Dorinda with the up and coming doctor, Dr. Worth, the very man who cured Victor (from Books One and Two).

Not really feeling the forced matchmaking, Dr. Worth comes up wit

This was better than I expected. In the previous two books in the series, we don't see Percy and Dorinda ever together, so to come together quickly always seems rather difficult to pull off in these novellas. But I found it believable and cute and an enjoyable fast read. My only issue would be just how quickly everything did happen - in the course of 12 hours! And I do mean everything, from desire, to the rebuff, to confessing undying love, to sex, to the big misunderstanding and finally the ult ...more

Short, but sweet romance between a widow and a doctor. I liked both characters and thought their love story was nice if too quick for my taste. I wanted them to explore more about Dorinda's issues from her previous marriage and definitely wanted to know more about Percy's rise to his current position.

TOO SHORT! I would have loved to see if dorinda really was barren though I understand that wasn't the point of the story.

Delightful Short Story

Duchasses always seem to meddle. Finding the right sort of man to marry in London is the theme of this delightful story. I enjoyed it immensely.

A cute short story about Dr. Worth and Dorinda
Cruth
Author: Sabrina Jeffries
First published: 2014
Length: 4 chapters, 872 kindle locations
Setting: London, Late Regency.
Sex: explicit.
Hero: Physician.
Heroine: Destitute widow believed to be barren.
Includes: Excerpt from How the Scoundrel Seduces.

A short tale of sex wrapped in lust and a little history lesson on fertility treatments. Adds little to the series.

2.5 stars rounded down. Short and sweet but nothing overly special.

This was a nice little novella. The main characters being pushed together by match making relatives, one of the best kind of story scenarios. They decide to get along fine at a dinner they are invited too and then have a very public argument.
But there's a twist, Percy (or the doctor) has always liked Dorinda and has been trying to get close to her for months. She hasn't a clue, and thinks the argument idea is best as she has no plans to marry again and men want a fertile womb any way and she th

Very short satisfying read

I really liked Dorinda and Percy. They have known each other for months and Percy has been wanting Dorinda for most of them.

Lisette slyly tells Dorinda that Percy will be out of town and asks her to go organize his office - knowing full well that Percy is home.

So Percy uses this time to convince Dorinda that they should be together. However Dorinda has some deep seated issues and doesn't want to be married again - especially to a doctor.

The story has a HEA and is a

This was one of those short stories that I wished with all my heart was a full sized novel. The hero and heroine were so well written that they deserved their story to be told in more detail, but alas it was not to be.

Regardless, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it as it is. Both characters tugged at my heartstrings throughout the story.

If you never read this author, this is a perfect story to sample her writing voice.

An awesome read!

A novella! A quick read filled with wit, second chances,passion and love. You can't help but fall in love with Dorinda and her Doctor. Together they make a lovely duo. A great read. I look forward to the next in this series. Ms. Jeffries is a wonderful storyteller. She brings her characters to life on the pages of her stories as well as the Regency era. A must read.
A personal buy.

This short story (it's really too much to try to call it a novella) was alright enough, I guess. I liked the characters and their interplay with one another, but... it was simply too short for any kind of real development or connection. Also, it was pretty repetitive. 3 stars (as far as short stories go)

Cute little short story about Percy and Dorinda. While I hated her name, I enjoyed the story. I have been curious if there would be a story about him and his lady love. Unfortunately, Jeffries only chose to do a short story with his character. It would have been fun to read a full length novel featuring Percy. At least we have some closure that he gets a happy ending.

The Duke's Men Book 2.5

This is the story of Dr. Worth and the Duke of Lyons's cousin, Dorinda. Lisette schemes to get Dorinda and Percy together by sending Dorinda to his home while he is supposedly away on business. When she finds him in dishabille, she can only stare. Together, they decide to teach the duchess a lesson.

If you're looking for a sweet short story, this is it!

Short But Sweet

The essence of romance is in the resolution of conflicted hearts, and truly, we always hope, as readers, that the hearts involved will see each other's truths before it is too late. This story delivers a resounding yes to that desire, and satisfies our hope for love.

This was a fun and emotional short story. Dr. Percy Worth and Widow Dorinda Nunley long for each other but know they would not make a good match. He thinks she is to good for a lowly doctor and she's barren so she can't give any man an heir. I highly recommend this short stand alone story.

Short story

Short sweet simple story. The story makes you feel like you started reading in the middle of the book. You definitely need to read the first book to figure out who the characters are.

I enjoyed this short, charming tale of the doctor, Percy, from the Duke's Men, and Dorinda, a cousin to the duke himself. My only complaint is that I wish it had been a but longer, maybe with a prologue of Dorinda and Percy later on. But all in all, a good read.

Meh. Not awful, but too short, too rushed. Basically just a "let's get you out of the way" thing for the doctor.
But at least it was really short. You know those novellas without a real story and yet they're like 200 pages? Yeah, thank god the author didn't stretch it out.

A quick read.

This is a short story that reads very quickly. It doesn't require any thinking such as who done it, or what comes next. I found it to be just an enjoyable way to waste away a rainy day by the fire.

Terlalu singkat dan ga ada epilognya. Sayang sekali.... padahal Percy a.k.a Dr. Worth so sweet, caring & loving. Bikin lumer.... hahaha
Semoga di series ini (buku berikutnya--ttg Dom & Jane), Dorinda-Percy bakal muncul lagi. Kali ini dengan cerita tentang anak2 mereka. :)
