Cynders & Ashe (A Short Story)
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Note: This is a short story (less than 10,000 words) and not a novella. Ella Cynders is a hired companion with a romantic bent. So when she switches places with her charge--who is determined to find true love and elope--it is Ella who falls head over heals in love with the very eligible Viscount Ashe. In one masked night, the viscount and Ella find passion and romance, and then tragically are whisked apart before the midnight unmasking. Now five years later, Ella has once again found a way to steal inside the coveted ball, but can she rekindle the magic they found together before her deception is unmasked? This short story was originally published in The Mammoth Book of Regency Romance and in print is 33 pages long.
I was looking for a quick read to pass the time and this book definitely fit the bill :) even though it was a short story, it had all of the feature and character development that you would expect, without lots of plot twists to extend the storyline. If you haven't read one of Elizabeth Boyle's books yet, this is a decent introduction to her writing style, which I love!
