I loved this novella! I loved how both the hero and heroine grow during the story. Definitely felt the connection between them. The heroine was feisty once she found her voice. The hero was standoffish at first but quickly grew to see the jewel of a fiancée that he had. The only thing that I didn’t like was that the author turned the hero into a duke at the end. I thought that was unnecessary. Also, as the daughter of an earl, Lucy should have been addressed as Lady Lucy not Miss Towerton. In addition, the heroine’s responses in the love scene were a bit unrealistic given her virginity. I also wish we could have been shown her parents’ reaction.
