“When the new earl inherits, poor relation Miss Rebecca Bond must wed immediately or be out on her ear. The only man she’s ever loved is summoned to hear the will—but he already rejected her so soundly that they haven’t spoken in years. Yet who better than a rakish Viscount to teach her how to snare a gentleman who appreciates her charms?

Daniel Goodenham, Lord North Barrows, regrets nothing more than the lost friendship with the one woman who treated him like a man, not a title. Fate has given him the perfect pretext to win her forgiveness—even if it means having to matchmake her to someone else. But now that she’s back in his life, he’ll do anything to convince her to choose him instead…

This story was first featured in the Vexed anthology.”



This was a cute and sweet novella with a lot of confusing emotions. This is the second novella I’ve read by this author (I’ve yet to read any of her full novels) and so far I am not overly impressed. The characters were likable, but also quite strange. Rebecca was almost alone for so long, yet she hasn’t gone crazy? I feel that the plot could have been more interesting and did not really see a point to many of the actions in the story. I’m still hopeful for this author’s full novels because almost as a rule I don’t enjoy novella very often.

About the Author

“Erica Ridley is a USA Today and New York Times best-selling author of historical romance novels.
In her new Rogues to Riches historical romance series, sigh-worthy Regency rogues sweep strong-willed young ladies into whirlwind romance with rollicking adventure.
Fan-favorite Dukes of War features charming peers and dashing war heroes who return from battle only to be thrust into the splendor and madness of Regency England.
When not reading or writing romances, Erica can be found riding camels in Africa, zip-lining through rainforests in Costa Rica, or getting hopelessly lost in the middle of Budapest.”


I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
