Product Description

A sexy Georgian historical romance novella by New York Times bestselling author, and member of the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame, Jo Beverley.

In 1765 a desperate mother accepts shelter with a stranger for herself and her children, but at what cost?

England in the Georgian age was not kind to the poor. When Lily Gifford finds herself homeless in the countryside on a bitter November evening has no choice but to accept shelter from a passing stranger. But when she and her children arrive at Brooks Hall, the house is cold and neglected, and their host abandons them to his handful of resentful servants.

When Lily learns Sir Benjamin Brook's secret, she sees hope for herself and her family, if only she dare risk all to grasp it. Links into the Malloren books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Much---And Not Enough 18 August 2013
By BarbaraJean - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A the start I thought this would be a good read, however, Ms. Beverly, unfortunately, crammed too many issues into a very short story. My feeling was this would have been much better as a longer book. The last few pages had every thing dumped into them to try and bring this story to a satisfactory end, however, it did not work for me. My feeling was the story would have been better as a full book to explain all the issues in this short story--the husband and his problems, the "heroine" and what happened to her in coping with her husband and what happened to her that was a shock to society. Lastly our "hero" and his problems. The sex scene was rushed and the feelings between the main characters needed more time to develop. I was left feeling incomplete. Not the best from Jo Beverly.
2.0 out of 5 stars I do not like the heroine 25 May 2016

Book is too short, but then that is how i find novellas most of the time. Only this one really could use a little bit more development or background information about our protagonists. I could, for example, not clearly picture the hero's deformity to understand how it affected his preference to seclusion. The circumstances leading to the heroine's disgrace could also use a bit more ink, while the play with balls and hoops less, or her lustfull thoughts for that matter. I do not like the heroine, for to me she appears as a selfish s_ _ t and her supposed love for the hero nothing but a convenience.

2.0 out of 5 stars I did NOT like this, barely readable. 20 November 2013
By feehan5 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ughhh.....this was awful, hard to get through. I have never read this author before, so I can't compare it to any of her full length books. It was a novella, but in this case shorter was better.

The good: i liked the cousin, perry. I liked Michael the oldest son. Both of
those characters had depth and made me want to read their story. The neglected manor house was a good setting, I would have liked to read about it taking shape.

The bad: everything else. The main hero was not compelling to me, he seemed sad and easily taken in. Lily was selfish, conniving, and not relateable. She tried to justify that she did it for her children, but her every thought, plan and action was that of a user. I did not like her. Visualizing their love scenes kind of made me feel ill. I do not want to picture teeth gnashing, ick. Then the book just ended in a flash, no epilogue, no real payoff.

Overall: not worth reading in my opinion. Even free, it was just not enjoyable.
4.0 out of 5 stars and have loved each one and spending time with this amazing family ... 27 June 2016

I have been re-reading through all of the Malloren Sibling's romances and marriages, and have loved each one and spending time with this amazing family again (thank you Jo Beverley), and really enjoyed reading this short simple story. A desperate widow who realizes too late that a stupid decision she made will now impact her children's lives, throwing them into poverty that may cost them their lives and certainly their lifestyle, meets a lonely bachelor and then work towards an happy ending for all of them. P.S. Perry Perriam makes a brief cameo!
3.0 out of 5 stars Jo Beverley is on of my TOP authors but something was "off" with this novella! 25 February 2014

I love all of Jo Beverley's books never read one I didn't like but this one makes me feel like I'm missing something.

Why would you have a scheming heroine in a novella where you can't develop her into one that wins you over to her side? Why have a hero that falls for a woman, learns she's lied to him and isn't even upset and sort of ho-hum about being lied to by his bride-to-be?

This would be great in a novel where they could grow and change but in this book I never bought into that she loved him and I just think this did not seem up to what I'd expect from Jo Beverley. I loved the children and the reception by the servants all rang true but the main characters deserved and needed a full-length book in my opinion.

I do love the fact that any book I read by Jo Beverley has no mental "blips" (English grammar problems) and no modern sayings using in a period of at least one hundred years too soon! I'm really sorry and feel bad to say I didn't really feel satisfied with this book but I must.
