“Eighteen months ago, Lizzie Troutt’s husband died in his mistress’s bed, leaving her determined to never marry again….and unfortunately virginal.

Eighteen years ago (give or take a few) the Honorable Oliver Berwick blackened his own soul, leaving him hardened and resolutely single.

When the chance for redemption in the form of a country house party invitation comes his way, Oliver is determined to prove himself a gentleman.

Until he breaks all the codes of gentlemanly behavior…once again. -Goodreads


This novella was very cute and quick. It was a wonderful read after having just finished an atrocious historical romance. This was my first read of Eloisa James and it definitely has encouraged me to look for more of her works in the future. I really feel that this novella could have been an even better story if given an entire novel. Aside from that, there wasn’t anything bad about the story, but in the grand scheme of historic romances it didn’t stand out very much to me, hence the 3 star rating.
