Off on duties for the military he keeps promising he’ll speak with her father when he returns. Weeks have passed with no word from him - so what’s a girl to do while waiting? A chance meeting gives her something to occupy her time and possibly more.
Dominic St. Monté just inherited the last thing he wants – a bloody title complete with sisters and responsibilities that will keep him bound to the land. What’s a new Duke to do? Marry of course and preferably a respectable, mild mannered lady who has no problem with her husband returning to his one true love – the sea. But how and where is on to find such a lady? A chance meeting may prove to be the solution or create a problem.
From their first meeting Dominic proves he is more than what Katrina has heard which may be more than she can handle. Katrina demonstrates everything Dominic wants in a wife, the only thing standing in his way – her almost engagement and his longing to return to sea. Add in a harpy, eccentric aunt, three sisters and the return of Katrina’s almost fiancée and you have a great story. Top it off with Collette Cameron’s unique wit and writing style and you have an exceptional story.
A Terrific Romantic Novella!
I love, love, loved this novella about a privateer turned gentleman Duke (St. Monte) and the lovely Katrina, daughter of a wealthy banker. Katrina was awaiting her betrothed’s return from soldiering, which seemed to take forever, and in the meantime was being quietly romanced by St. Monte after they were introduced to each other by St. Monte’s aunt, a friend of Katrina’s. I so enjoyed his quiet pursuit of our heroine. There is a surprise near the end so I am not spoiling it in this review and you’ll just have to read the book to find the surprise!
An Utterly charming Story
This was an utterly charming story. I have loved each of the Waltz with a Rogue Novella, but this has been my favorite by far.
I, much like Katrina, was charmed by Dominic St. Monte. He was a such a great hero and not all what I was expecting, which is good thing. It was quite easy to see that Katrina and Dominic were the perfect pair and it was fun to watch them figure it out for themselves.
The whole time I was reading this story I had a smile on my face. Ms. Cameron crafted a great story full of witty banter, sizzling chemistry and full of heart. You won't be able to put down this story till you see how Katrina and Dominic will make it to their happy ending.
