A MADNESS IN SPRING was originally published in the multi-author anthology tilted "A Gentleman For All Seasons" so if it sounds sort of familiar, you may have already read it there. Although relatively short even for a novella (it ended at 90% and location 1190 of 1318 on my kindle device) it was fast paced, witty, and just plain fun to read. Belinda took a while to grow on me but I ended up getting a better understanding of her as the story progressed, and Adam didn't take long to steal my heart. And though I'm typically not a fan of romances where enemies turn into lovers, this one had enough charming qualities and humor to have me overlooking that fact.
I only have two issues with it, and the first would be that the romance took a while to get off the ground. The second has to do with the editing and the many typos I noticed. At a guess I'd say there were around two dozen or so, which is just too many for this short a story. Overall it was a sweet and funny little historical romance that I enjoyed though, and one that left me with a big smile on my face when it ended =)
Ages: Belinda (24) Adam (27)
Number of Love Scenes: (1)
While Belinda Leonard has control over most everything in her life, there is one aspect that seems to repeatedly cause chaos. Any time she comes in contact with Adam Sturridge, whatever is happening usually becomes aggravating. He has been annoying her since she moved to Hemshawe when nine, and the fault-finding comments have continued into adulthood. When a newcomer to their town sees the way Belinda and Adam behave around each other, a cunning plan is hatched and might have the pair discovering how they actually feel for one another.
A historical romance set in England is always a favorite of mine, and Kate Noble makes her story compelling with engaging characters and an enjoyable plot. Adam is a much more complex individual than I first thought, while Belinda also has a side which she keeps hidden from others. As they learn to be more honest with their feelings, I got to know them much better and wanted true happiness to be in their futures.
