Description

This witty Regency short story (less than 10,000 words) by New York Times bestselling author Candice Hern will appeal to readers who enjoy the traditional Regency Romances of Georgette Heyer. Lydia Bettridge is a young woman suffering the pangs of unrequited love. To capture the attention of Geoffrey Danforth, the man who has stolen her heart but barely notices her, she has resorted to desperate measures with a seemingly clever plan. By engaging the help of Phillip, a friend of her brother's, to play the love-smitten fool in public, she hopes to pique the interest of her unnamed love. But when Geoffrey himself shows up to take Phillip's place, all her careful planning is turned upside down. What's a girl to do but to make the best of it?

Loved it

Short and Sweet

I do not typically like the shorter regency writings, as they always seem to lack something. This is a short story which could have been transformed into a wonderful novel. However, I love this short story. It has been in my collection for a while, and it is always leaves me with a smile on my face, as the short length does not allow for a terrible "bad" (evil mother-in-law, competitive debutante, jealous mistress, tragic death, etc.).

I recommend you give this one a shot, and at the price who could turn this down.
