Cynthia Moore definitely delivers a delightful Regency romance with this lovely short story. I was taken on a whirlwind in such a short amount of time and yet not once did I feel as if I were missing anything, in fact I was quite surprised when the adventure was over and immediately wanted to read it again. Selina was such an endearing character, I couldn't help but feel invested in her relationship from the very start. She had me giggling one moment and feeling heartbroken along with her the next. I couldn't help but want to hit Robert in the back of the head but I also found myself wanting to give him a comforting hug. His misguided actions were done for all the right reasons but I still wondered just what the heck he was thinking. I loved the supporting characters they added depth to the story and easily won me over so much so that I cannot wait to see many of them get their own staring rolls. I can highly recommend this is one if you're looking for a swift and sweet historical romance.
