HOWEVER, it was never proofread and is rampant with misused and misspelled words .
It reads like it was dictated by one person and transcribed by another. The latter not reading the script, just typing what they thought the word was. Atrocious !!
**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book.**
This is a novella-length story about a woman who has been thrust into an undesirable betrothal to pay off her uncle's debt. In a desperate attempt to flee, she finds herself hiding in the carriage of a widowed duke. After she learns that the duke's daughter is in need of a governess, she jumps at the opportunity. But when the threat of her uncle's scheme catches up to her, it may be the duke who saves the day.
The story was short and sweet. I think what I wanted from this novella was just 'more'. More description of the characters and more time to get to know each of them. We barely skim the surface of either of our pair and I still don't have a clear vision of what our hero even looked like since his physical appearance isn't described much at all. Even with the stolen kisses, the couple didn't have enough scenes together for me to really get a sense of their chemistry.
However, despite the things I wanted to see more of, I think what we did get was a pleasant story. It was fast-paced and kept me on my toes the whole time. I liked our hero and heroine and I despised the villains. I rooted for Emma from the start and I felt a pang of sympathy for Aaron from his first chapter. I wanted the two to find their way to each other and not simply because Emma was in need of saving. This could certainly be a more successful story if lengthened and deepened. With such a great plot and good characters, it seems sad to waste such potential. 3.5 suns!

Miss Emma Baxter escaped the clutches of her profligate uncle and the lascivious old man he's marrying her into as payment for her uncle's debt.
She stowed away in a carriage unbeknownst to the owner, the widower Duke of Radcliff, Aaron St John.
Emma was hired as a governess to the Duke's precocious 7-year-old-daughter, Lady Sophia.
Aaron and Emma married in haste, thereby protecting her from her uncle's evil machinations.
Conflict and resolution tied up nicely in short and sweet novella.
I voluntarily read this complimentary eCopy from the author. This is my honest review.
Anne Marie Damman was the perfect narrator for this tale: her narration was full of passion and drama.
You could feel the events as they took place.
Emma and Aaron were great company and it was fun taking this journey with them.
Amanda Mariel's delightful tale was beautifully brought to life by Anne Marie Damman.
I would certainly recommend this book.
I was given an advance copy for an honest review.
