    1. Cute story, although one wonders how often one woman can be kidnapped over the course of two-hundred pages. Pretty silly plot twists and I agree with other reviewers that the story bordered on the ridiculous side. Most of the side characters were so over the top, they were more like caricatures than anything else, with the impulse control and common sense of five year olds. And the ending left me pretty unsatisfied.


    2. This was a very cute story. The main characters are very likable and you can practically get immerged into the story. My only complaint is that it was too short of a story and wish there was more. In my opinion the author didn't allow the story to grow and have more depth, there were too many loose ends. Like: What Happened to Ianthe's sister? What about Lord Robert? And Did the wicked stepmother got what she deserved? etc.


    3. Lovely miniatureIt's a small book, without the subtleties of a full length novel, but nevertheless a satisfying read. This author never disappoints.


    4. I really enjoyed this story. The characters were well written, though the mother was obviously blind as a bat when it came to seeing the two girls for what they were. The Hero, however, was not fooled. He read Serena right from the get-go, and focuses on Ianthe (which does not go down well with Serena.)I was vastly pleased to see Serena get her comeuppance when the Earl she has been toying with gives her the cut direct *deeply satisfied sigh*At 99 cents, this was a steal. Well written, with cred [...]


    5. What to say about this book? At first it had an ugly ducking/cinderella vibe and then quickly I found myself asking again and again, "how many times can one person be kidnapped??" I mean, it just kept happening again and again. I don't particularly care for kidnap stories and this one was a multiple kidnap story. It wasn't very suspenseful because there wasn't enough storyline in between events. I don't think the narration helped much since I listened to this on audio. The narrator somewhat over [...]


    6. That was the end? Really? It was as if the 1/2 of the book was wonderful, but the author lost interest and quit just to get it over with. What happened to all of the other characters? We are totally left hanging. I wanted more depth in the relationship too. It was just such a disappointing end. Boo!


    7. A very nice and enjoyable reading. The bookish and smarter twin snares herself the most titled gentleman although with some tarnished past ;)Both H&h are well written with their heads on their shoulders and hearts in the right places either. The heroine might be just too "goody-two-shoes" and too sweet but but not ad noseum.No steamy love scenes.


    8. To read a review and find out what real life handsome hottie Ms. Courtenay had in mind while writing this novella, please see my blog post: wwwbookbabe/2011/


    9. It is extremely short. It is a cute story though not very exciting or heartwarming as compared to other romance novels that I have read recently.





    10. Another fun Regency Romp. This author really enjoys this genre and her characters. She has a lot of fun with them. And the romance is heartfelt.


    11. Summer readingAnother good book to take on your summer holiday. Very easy read and can recommend you to read it and enjoy


    12. Such a wonderful short story! I love Christina Courtenay's writing style and yet again she delivers a brilliant, historically accurate and heartwarming romance that I just adored! 5 Stars!
