And this story will make a LOT more sense! This is a thoroughly modern "Beauty and the Beast" tale set against a thin Regency backdrop. If you have more than a cursory knowledge of Regency customs, you will be frustrated and unsatisfied.

Summary: Miss Eleanor Faversham spent some formative years in Warwickshire, as friend of Lord Nathaniel Sallinger and his sister, Charlotte. Nathaniel returns from the war with half of face scarred, a limp and some emotional wounds. However, he remains very attractive and virile overall, so much so that his budding relationship with Eleanor leads to sex. He proposes to her the next day. She rejects him flatly, runs off to London and at the age of 18, she establishes a household for herself, with no real chaperone or relative, and live on her own. She has $$). She is the toast of the ton and establishes a reputation for being a flirt, although she remains physically and emotionally unattached to anyone. She turns down dozens of marriage offers. After 5 years, she returns to Warwickshire. The story picks up from here and chronicles the re-ignition of Eleanor's relationship with Nathaniel, the wild assumptions that they make about each other and their eventual marriage (through the wedding night).

I was disappointed by the book, and I question the research the author did. Here's why:

1)Eleanor rejects Nathaniel's initial proposal b/c she fears marriage. Her fears were told, not shown. Her parents loved each other, but somehow by 18, Eleanor refuted marriage, even after yielding her virginity, which was a disgrace at that time. In a society, where women were completely geared toward getting married, she was so disillusioned by 18, that she couldn't imagine a happy marriage under any circumstances?

I was really looking forward to reading this book, and I was even more excited because it was only $.99. I guess you get what you pay for (although I've read some free reads that were a lot better).

I was expecting a hot romance. What I got was one misunderstanding and assumption after another. They hated (but secretly loved) each other through out 75+% of the book. Then I couldn't figure out why they fell in love because they were so horrible to each other the whole time. At the end, when all should have been resolved, she doesn't bring up one of her biggest fears. She just brushes it under the table, agreeing to live with it just like her mother did...and her parents loved each other. Belch! I'm sure that's how things really were back then but this is a romance novel! I guess, since it wasn't really addressed at the end, it could be considered a loose end. Either way, it's annoying! (I don't really want to give it away because it could be a spoiler).

I wish the author would have focused more on developing the relationship instead of on them hurting each other because of false assumptions. It would have been a much better book. I think I will pass on this author's other books.

ALthough I enjoyed this read which was heartwarming with the nice HEA at the end, it was not great as I felt it was a bit repetitive along the way and found myself skimming through parts as it was the same old thing within the H/h internal dialogue. It would have been better had some of these repeat musing's been omited and either left it be or added something in addition to.

Although I found Nell thouroughly enjoyable there were moments where I found she was a condridiction to herself as the self sufficient Miss who is upfront and enjoys her independence and then her lack of confidence to clearly state the reasons why she does not want to marry to Nathaniel, which would have avoided much of the anger going on between them.

I really liked Nathaniel in every which way. He was 100% honest thoughout the tale with his anger for Nell and also honest and open about his love he still had for her as well and did not shy away from anything.

The secondary characters were also very endearing. The love scenes were well written and the chemistry between the H/h was great as well as the build up. SO all in all I liked it, but you be the judge.

I loved this story. I came back to find the book on Amazon specifically to write a review and after reading some of these reviews, I was stunned. It makes me wonder if people are just mean when they see a new author (is she new? new to me anyway) with an excellent book? I sure hope not. I shall assume that my outlook is just so different than others...and grant a benefit of the doubt. At any rate...I have loved romance my whole life...I love the greats in romance...This book was well written and original. Miss Faversham was a really interesting character.

As to the realism...first of all...all romance has its "fairy tale" reality...anyone who reads romance wants to take a fictional journey...and to get caught up on something that is an arguable fact like if Miss Faversham could live on her own?...I don't understand even worrying about that. It is fiction...let us pretend she did this and is it impossible? So many are willing to believe in time travel, shape shifters, vampires....but it is hard to believe a woman was wealthy enough to live on her own? It was not unheard of for a very wealthy woman to be able to live on her own...it depended on how her male relatives left her! I loved her sense of adventure and her love of life that didn't only involve the man she loved. She was bold and interesting while hiding a very sensitive and soft person. I don't want to say too much be spoil the book, but what I will say is that even though she "lost" her love...she didn't pine away in a way that is typical in romance and life. She had depth and intelligence and knew who she was and what she wanted. She was lovely and colorful. I wanted to know her. Maybe a part of me identified with her sense of wanting to keep herself and be bold...

Now the fascinating hero.
