The story starts out promising, but stops before there is any conflict or drama. It is just the weakest possible background story of Lady Southridge. In a few sentences at the end of this snippet of a part of a story, Vaden attempts to give reason for Lady Southridge's motivation for helping out the Duke. The entire story that I paid for is less than half of the pages of the book. The rest of the book is a sample of "What the Duke Wants." So annoying. The publisher, Amazon, and Vaden should all be embarrassed to be selling this as a legitimate story.
The worst part is that Dianna is such a promising character and deserves a better telling of her story. What a waste.
Having read the sample before purchase, I purchased The Only Reason because it seemed to offer some promise of a little deviation from the standard formula for Regency era romances. However, because of its brevity it quickly devolved into the girl meets boy, instantaneous love ensues model. Characterizations held largely unfulfilled promise. The whole thing felt like one tiny bite of an appetizer that tastes good, but leaves you hungry and frustrated.
The Only Reason for the London Season is a sweet, yet sassy, happy, fun story! I adored the interactions of Dianna and Lord Southridge. Dianna is a feisty character that knows how to go after what she wants. I laughed out loud and had a smile on my face the entire time.
If you enjoy Regency Romance or are just looking for something to bring a smile to your face then go and pick up Kristin Vayden's book!

Kristin did a great job!
I just wish that there had been more about their love story or even a glimpse of their wedding. They were a great couple. Dianna was the perfect mix of witty, stubborn, and tempting. I could totally picture her with her ear pressed against the grate listening to her father talk with Cambridge. I would've done the same thing :)
Aside from parts I wish would've been there this short story was GREAT! Kristin had me laughing out loud and visualizing everything that happened! I can't wait for What the Duke Wants and to see if Dianna is in it and what kind of role she will play! I see her being the stubborn, nosey mother, which is exciting to me :)
Thanks for a lovely read Kristin!
There is no tension, no hardships, no real love story here. A young woman decides to go against the norm during her second season, meets an Earl who is determined to find a wife but utterly bored with the debutantes. They meet, have one conversation, he kisses her, they are seen by her mother, he asks for her hand and they get married. The story jumps forward several years, tells you what happened and BOOM! The book is done! It is definitely an intriguing advertisement for her later stories (a few chapters of which are given at the end of this novella), and I will be reading them as I already owned them, but had I not... I can't honestly say I would have purchased them after reading this one.
This is even more of a disappointment because there was such potential there for this to be a really wonderful story. I would have loved to have seen someone (Dianna or her parents perhaps), force the Earl of Southridge to properly court her so we could have seen more of their relationship at the beginning. I loved the characters, and the way they interacted with each other, but there should have been a bigger experience with them. I also would have loved to have read more about the years between the time they were married and the epilogue, so that I felt like everything had been tied up instead of just feeling like the author wanted to rush this particular story to entice you to read the followup novels.

The original story was very cute and short... 20 pages. Then, there was a preview of "What the Duke Wants", plus some paragraphs describing other stories/books.Published 12 months ago by Luvs2Read2
