5 stars – Historical/Regency Romance

rated it

In fact, I kne the MCs names in his memoir, and I stil just finished listening.

Ms. Quinn has managed to ake an amusing inside joke from her Bridgertons series, change it into a charming anecdote, then transform it into an enchanting love story, plus make it the start of a developing series.

Initially, the illness Marcus Holroyd, Earl of Chatteris, contracts is no laughing matter.

Honoria Smythe-Smith dithers a bit too much for me before she iscovers his problem.

I loved Marcus.

And I loved Marcus and Honoria ’ s sweet love story of childhood friends turned to lovers.

rated it

his nove made me and, invariably, sometimes, most of thi time and overall The story- Honoria and Marcus have known each other since they were hildren.

Marcus interrupts Honoria in her devious plot ( she dag a hole in the ground to feign a fall and ankle injury), end ends up hurt himself

hat leads to an ankle injury and later infection, during which non other than Honoria tends to him

The Smythe-Smiths were famous ( or infamous is probably more accurate) but would it be what you want from a Quinn book- a fun and light romance- or wil it be like the past few duds?

ProsIt did have some strong aspects, while also missing those that we- or at least I- often bemoan in romance book: -- There was no contrived subplot- mystery, mass-murdering or otherwise -- There is not instant lust; they 've known each other since childhood and have considered one another practical brother and sister -- There are no love interests thrown in for the sole purpose of dragging the plot out and making you squirm in your seat- or couch or bed- and there were no hated Big Misunderstandings -- The book as to focused on the two main haracters, Honoria and Marcus -- One really gets the ense that they ould follo a wonderful couple and have a lot of what the other needsSo why the 3 stars?

In the sense, tory was truly lovely and Marcus 's wonder in the Epilogue at the family he has continued to form is touching and sweet.ConsMy main criticisms that kept it from receiving a lowe rating are the following: ( 1) Marcus gets deathly ill and Honoria rushes with her aun to his bedside to nurse him.

Man romances have this plot device and do n't suffer from it, but here I think it dragged on too long and since Marcus is insensible for most of it, one does n't appreciate that it develops their relationship much. ( 2) While the part of his illness seemed dragged out, the rest seemed very, very rushed.

— Short and sweet is Just Like Heaven ( the sincerely likeable and lovely) Honoria Smythe-Smith 's and ( the perfect future hubby material) Marcus Holroyd, Earl of Chatteris' romantic love story.

I LIKE- lovely, amusing fun HR on audio
