Apr 15, Colleen rated it it was ok Shelves: Thank goodness this was a free download and I didn’t actually pay for it. I typically enjoy Eloisa James’ books, but this one did not do it for me at all. At first I thought it might be due to the fact that it’s a short story, but honestly, it was the character of Genevieve. I just didn’t like her. The story started out okay, we meet Genevieve who is a young widower.
Her one true love got away when her father interrupted their elopement to Gretna Green and then forced her to marry a much older g Thank goodness this was a free download and I didn’t actually pay for it. Her one true love got away when her father interrupted their elopement to Gretna Green and then forced her to marry a much older gentleman.
Due to her deceased husband’s unorthodox provisions in his Will, Genevieve must marry one of his business partners or be left penniless. The story then jumps to a year later and she is still courting one of the business partners who has still not shown much adoration or caring for her.
He obviously has a shady past, but I never saw where it was revealed which by this point I was skimming, so maybe I missed it. Then her one true love from her past comes back into the picture, but she refuses to give him the time of day even though he is now filthy rich.
Genevieve got on my last nerves. She acted like such a pompous who know what most of the time and reading about her was like listening to nails going down a chalkboard to me. Could not connect with her for anythingso unfortunately I found myself skimming to the end so I could say I finished it. Oh well, at least it was a short story and free!
Jun 21, Laura the Highland Hussy rated it liked it. I also actually liked the rival Felton, and I thought he was the hero at first, so that might have skewed my view on him. Tobias was a great hero He never quite understood til it was too late that he’d compromised Genevieve not just her virtue but he’d taken away her choice.
He did eventually realize it, but I didn’t like how no one quite understood what the o 3. He did eventually realize it, but I didn’t like how no one quite understood what the other felt. Tobias and Genevieve almost eloped when they were young-her jmaes caught them, before they hit Scotland, but they’d already consummated the, er, elopement. Twice ;P But her father sent him away, and married Genevieve off to an old man and lied to her about Tobias.
So 7 years later Tobias finds out she’s a widow and comes back for her.
Her best friend Carola was my favorite character: Tobias Darby came all the way back from India, just to ask you to marry him!
He’s waited for you all these years, and now finally you’re free,” she sighed. It’s tough with a novella, I get that, but it’s hard when you like both men in the story and you can only pick one. Especially when you don’t like the heroine all that much. View all 4 comments.
Feb 21, kris rated it did not like it. Genevieve Mulcaster is newly widowed. She’s amping up for an eeloisa with her dead husband’s former business partner when her former elopement-buddy Tobias Darby shows up demanding a second go at the whole marriage thing. In fact, it was pretty bad.
Genevieve starts off seemingly excited to be free from her unhappy marriage. Then she’s into the fact that Lucius is proper. And the is ridiculous. Toby is a demanding shit. It’s not very well written. Jajes 27, Dorine rated it really liked it Shelves: Lady Genevieve Mulcaster, a widow, is in a precarious position, orchestrated by jamez deceased husband. Per his will, she is to remain in mourning for two years, and then, if she marries one of his two business partners, she will inherit his estate.
Otherwise, the estate will go to the church, with a small amount coming to Genevieve.
A quiet and possibly disreputable man, Lucius Felton, quickens her heart. Genevieve is quirky and Lucius and Tobias are both very determined gentlemen and maybe, not necessarily gentlemen when it comes to love. Jun 15, Teresa Gibson rated it it was ok. Short fluffy brain candy e-book that I read while sitting in the Central Jury Room, waiting and well, waiting.
It’s a very light Regency historical romance about Genevieve, who at a young age is separated from her true love.
In the ensuing years, she’s married off to a wealthy old man who later passes away and will only leave his fortune to her if she marries one of his business associates. Genevieve is intrigued by Felton, the younger of the associates, but can’t quite get his attention. In the Short fluffy brain candy e-book that I read while sitting in the Central Jury Room, waiting and well, waiting.
In the meantime, jmaes former love, Tobias, re-enters her life, even though she never expected to see him again, completely confusing and complicating matters. This was a quick, fun read. I enjoyed the intricate details of Genevieve’s dresses–the author must really understand couture of the early ‘s. I wanted to shake jams heroine several times for being so wishy-washy. And the climax of the storyline did not have a significant enough buildup–it was like the author had a limited number of words and had used most of them jsmes by the time she got to the end of the novel, and so had to tie things up quickly.
That was kind of dissatisfying and the conflicts and resolution could have been so much better. Mar 16, Angela rated it liked it. As far as “the one that got away” stories go, this one was just OK.
The heroine, Genevieve, was flighty and sometimes annoying. She claims to be in love with Felton – and even goes so far to engage his affections as to attack him in a carriage and then later demand he kiss her in front of the entire ton. That very same night she makes-out with Tobias – twice.

She was an unlikable character. We’re thrown off because Felton is introduced at the beginning of the story and it’s assumed he’ll be the h As far as “the one that got away” stories go, this one was just OK. We’re thrown off because Felton is introduced at the beginning of the story and it’s assumed he’ll be the hero. There are a few sly remarks thrown in to indicate otherwise like when her friends call his smile snake-like.
Tobias, the real hero, doesn’t make an appearance until the third chapter there are only 8 chapters in this book. As characters go, I liked both Felton and Tobias, even though Felton didn’t put up much of a fight for a woman he’d poured over a year of energy fol.
May 03, AH rated it liked it Shelves: I didn’t really understand the attraction between Mr. Felton and Genvieve, it jaames rather contrived and proper. Even Felton’s proposal seemed like a business transaction.

Things look up for Genvieve when her first love returns from India. I liked Tobias’ character and the way he is described makes him seem to be the more attractive choice. If this were a novel, Felton and Darby would duel to the death. May 02, Susan Robison rated it did not like it. I just got a Kindle and have been reading anything I can get my hands on from the free kindle store.
I had high hopes for this one. It was set in a time period and location that I love and couldn’t wait to dive in. However, I was disappointed to see that this was just a trashy novel, which was heavy on the trash, short on the novel. I finished it, trying to give it a chance and paging through the predictable garbage looking for the story, but never really found much of one. Not great unless that I just got a Kindle and have been reading anything I can get my hands on from the free kindle store.
