Plain and tall. (According to the lady herself.)
Titled and irreproachably proper. (According to her fiancé.)
Until, overnight, she becomes
Lady Lucy Towerton:
Heiress. (Thanks to an aged aunt’s bequest.)
Belle of the ball. (So say the fortune hunters of the ton.)
In charge of her own destiny (finally!), Lucy breaks her engagement and makes up her mind never to be proper again… – via GoodReads
My Thoughts: I wasn’t particularly impressed by this. I haven’t read The Duke is Mine yet and maybe this didn’t help. I didn’t connect to the characters in this short story. I didn’t break this down into What I Loved and What I Could Have Lived Without because I didn’t really have strong feelings one way or the other. The characters were ok, the worked well together but I didn’t click with them. This novella was too short but I think that problem lays with my reading tastes.
Recommended For: People who are reading the series.
Avoid If: Honestly, if you’re not reading the Fairy Tales series, I would save my money.
