This was a great little novella. I have always been a sucker for Historical Fiction but it has been ages since I read a Historical Romance; which was why I was hesitant at first to read this book. However I am so very glad I did! The author was well versed in the language and customs of the time era her characters lived in. C.J. Archer painted a wonderful picture and I could envision the book as if it were a movie. I enjoyed the theme of redemption and a second chance to make love work. Of course the ending was predictable but when I read romance I disregard that the ending is expected because it's ROMANCE! The boy and girl are supposed to live happily ever after in the end, I actually have no idea why anyone would expect otherwise is this genre. The author did a good job of immediately drawing the reader in with an almost palpable tension between the main characters and then was able to endure with that feeling right up to the end. BRAVO! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Romance, especially because Romance lovers read for the swooning, intense emotions and forbidden loves, this book has all of that! Overall it was a fun, quick and entertaining read. I would definitely read other works from this author because I enjoyed her writing style. WELL DONE!

C.J. Archer created a tightly packaged novella that is a quick, enjoyable read. It has everything Historical Romance needs... A beautiful leading lady, a handsome rouge for a leading man, unrequited love, a masked ball, notes written in lemon juice slipped under doors, and of course second chances. Our author develops each character quickly and dives right into the action. There is a twist in there that I didn't see coming- Hind sight? Yes, there were clues that could have given it away but I didn't see them(and I am not going to tell you either!). Once you start reading this one you won't be able to put it down. And yes, it is a ROMANCE they all end the same way. Folks that read romance know this- others should come prepared for the happily ever after and enjoy the ride that gets you there.

This is a clean romance, there are a few kisses -there are no bedroom scenes- though there is a tiny bit of suggestion and one sentence that made me giggle... "Oh My!" A great read! I devoured it in one sitting.

I enjoy this author's work and usually find it quite romantic, which is what I look for in historical romances. I'm not a fan of 'second chance' stories because there is usually hurt involved on one or both sides. This is no exception in that the h rejected the H's offer of marriage when she was just 17 and he was the second son of a Baron, with no prospects. We know that the h is the daughter of an Earl and expected by her mother to marry well. The h also states that she wasn't sure of her love for the H at that time. I mean for heaven's sake, she was still so incredibly young, it wasn't at all realistic that she'd throw it all away to run off with the H. He has held a grudge meanwhile, for 7 years. I found him quite unsympathetic, I hated what he did in revenge and there was no way the author could redeem him for me in the space of a few short pages.

The writing is good however and I will read more by this author in the future.

This is the first novel I read of this author and I liked it. It is a short story and I wish it had more background and the author would have developed the plot more between the main characters. But for a short story it is acceptable. if you are into long descriptive chapters/novels, this is not for you.

I thoroughly enjoyed the historical blending of history,science,and romance. Historical,yet modern in a way that only a true romance novel can do. Sort a very enjoyable read.

Love her stories and the many different scenarios she comes up with. Love sequences are inspiring and comforting, reminding me of the reason I fell in love with my husband.
