A very quick read but enjoyable just the same. I wish that this had a chance to be fleshed out in to a longer novel but enjoyable just the same. Daphne was entertaining and not a tradtional heroine for the period. Of course this probably has a lot to do with being a widow which makes it where she isn't as naive as others of her time. She knows what she wants and goes after it once she sees it.Hartwell was sweet in his misconceptions of self and the one time you get to see his more blatant sexual self it was hot. I enjoyed his attempts to keep up with her and break out of the shell he put himself in as a result of his upbringing and the misconceptions of the ton. Daphne got lucky that noone else truly saw him. I would like to have seen a longer treatment just so we could have had more of the two of them together but if you just want a quick read this is a nice one to pick up.Special thanks to netgalley.com and Carina Press for the chance to read this one in exchange for my honest review.
