The tale is badly in need of editing due to numerous grammatical errors and confusion as to the meaning of some words and concepts. The duke would become her "guardian" if she were his ward. Under most circumstances, such guardianship is required only upon the death of a woman's parent. And entailed properties would normally be passed to the next male relative who inherited the title, (Lord Alfred's title is never stated, but must be at least an earl if his daughter is properly titled Lady Helen), or would revert to the crown, not her husband or son. If this is one of those rare situations in which the title and property could be passed through the female line, that should have been mentioned. Helen is both overly knowledgeable and overly ignorant of other women's opinions of the duke. Mostly, I felt like the story needed a bit more conflict than just some misunderstandings and a strong dictatorial personality. After further editing, this tale *could* be a good story in a slightly longer format.
The story's saving grace was its brevity, though it seemed far longer while I was puzzling through the grammar to determine the author's meaning. Its abrupt ending left me wondering how the new duchess was received and what would happen should she find herself enciente. So... the story is okay if you've a little bit of time to kill and have no "inner grammar nazi" to torture.
