Em was born and brought up in the Central Belt of Scotland and still lives there. She was told as a child she had an overactive imagination--as if that is a bad thing. She's traded her dreams of owning her own island, just like George in the Famous Five to hoping to meet her own Mr Darcy one day. But her imagination remains the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick read
By Belle on November 7, 2015
I enjoyed the first two chapters of this book and found it promising. I liked Nick, the hero. Though he was made to offer marriage to Gabby due to a wager, at least he was honest and told her about it right off instead of beating around the bush and seducing her first. Gabby is very likeable as well. The birthmark on her face may have been some kind of repellent, but she seemed genuinely intelligent and self-sufficient. The fact that Nick and Gabby used to be very good friends as children made it easy to believe that they could get along and that Nick could actually fall for her.

I was a bit confused about how the author wanted to portray the heroine's brother and his relationship with his wife Edna. First she writes about the brother preferring the pleasures of his mistresses in town while his wife Edna is left at his estate. Then in Chapter 5 it says: "...her brother was a weak man and a woman like Edna had him wrapped around her little finger." That does not fit at all. If that was the case, then the brother would not be losing his fortune by gambling nor would he openly keep mistresses around.

I also couldn't like the sexual content. It's not that it is overly vulgar, but i just found the author dealt more about it than other plots of the book which could have made this more interesting. I understand that the heroine is a virgin, but for the author to write all those silly questions (and answers) is rather off the road. It felt like reading something like Sex for Dummies. I find it made this novella unnecessarily longer without contributing any weight to the development of the story. The conflict between the hero, the heroine, her brother and sister-in-law was, on the other hand, very quickly resolved after only one confrontation and all became well. It would have been so much better had the author worked harder on that particular part of the story.

The author employed an editor, Em Petrova, but i find that this editor does not deliver a splendid job. There are still errors in this book that simple proofreading should be able to correct. Aside from a few spelling errors, my kindle copy contains two chapter 11. Of course, the last must be chapter 12 but i find an omission like that reflects poorly. I have read another book edited by this editor as well, Sinful Cravings by Samantha Holt, and the editing there was even worse. Overall a quick read that won't tax one's imagination.
