A very hot steamy short novella . I have not read all of Nia's works yet , as I am new to her , but I will tell you, I have not been disapointed yet . I would love to see this as a full length novel and continue on, this would make a great trilogy I think or even more . This story burned the pages , as I read it . I really haven't been into historical novels much, but this little story here has changed my mind , lol.... I like to watch documentaries and history things and I know from what I've r ...more

This is a tasty short read ideal for a quiet evening curled up on the sofa and although I don't normally read this genre I found myself wishing it was longer. I liked the story/plot and also the characters. The situations they found themselves in are sexy hot.

16th century lady who was left a widow shortly after her marriage. Lady Catherine Donnelly needs to keep her household and finds an ingenious way to do so!

Highway robbery with a twist ;)

When she is commanded to London she is worried she will meet Lord Leighton - and rightly so. Such an intriguing short story by Nia. Lots of laughs (by the reader) and incredible sex.

Oh, such a satisfying tease! Lady Catherine gets the best of Lord Leighton (James), and their encounter is sizzling and sexy hot! It only serves to make James more determined to find her. I can't wait for more, oh yes! I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

It was fun to read this short story by Nia Farrell. It's not a funny story, but I liked how the Catherine took advantage of her target, Lord Leighton when she ambushed his carriage.
Later on the roles are reversed....
Well written story. Wished it would've been longer.

I love reading and writing romance, contemporary and historical, with a special fondness for stories with BDSM and/or menage relationships. I enjoy crafting characters that will stay with you long after you've read about them. Their stories are layered, with topics like PTSD and autism, with elements of spirituality and mysticism, with psychic gifts and everyday challenges to be met and overcome.
