An Affair in Autumn
“On a mission to locate the missing Duke of Beckworth, Lord Markus Hawkins boards a ship bound for America, where he finds himself trapped in close quarters with his childhood friend-turned-enemy, Caroline Addison.
Caro is headstrong, frustrating, selfish, wickedly intelligent, and so damn beautiful Mark can’t see straight when she’s near. Torn between wanting to kiss her senseless and wanting to strangle her, Mark has no idea how he’s going to survive the torture of the long weeks ahead.
A YEAR WITHOUT A DUKE
The duke has died. Long live the duke! The only problem is no one knows who the new Duke of Beckworth is. All of England wonders, but no one more so than the people who depend upon Beckworth for their livelihood. In 1816, a year so cold that the word “summer” is a cruel joke, that livelihood is even more uncertain. However, they are all about to find out, with the duke away, there is nothing more warming than scandal and love…” -Goodreads
This was a cute, quick, yet intense romance. It is essentially a rekindled love story about people who didn’t know they were in love in the first place. Most likely due to the novella being so short, the characters were not as developed as I would have liked. Aside from thta it was a great setting that didn’t subtract from the characters and their love. I believe this novella is essentially a plot device to set up the next book in the series “House of Trent”. While this is the only House of Trent romance I’ve read, glancing at the preview for the next book that was at the end of this e-book, I saw were the story was heading.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ROMANCE PERIOD?
I received this book from Netgalley for this honest review.
