      Very satisfying novella-length conclusion to the Grenville Chronicles, this one focusing on Lady Leticia Lindsay, who lives in the neighboring estate in Lincolnshire. I liked her character very much in Lord John's Dilemma and was pleased to see her in the heroine role here. As the title suggests, Lord Basingstroke (a.k.a. Lieutenant Lawrence Topkins) is the hero. The two meet in London at a celebration for Lord John's engagement, who was commanding officer to Lawrence, and they strike up an acqu [...]

      I received this free novella as part of a promotion for signing up for the author's newsletter. I've enjoyed her books in the past and looked forward to reading this. It's a sweet regency romance that is part of the author's Grenville Chronicles. It's pretty short, easy to read in one hour, however it keeps the reader hooked and wanting to know how things will turn out. I think the author could have lengthened the story and included more angst if she wanted to, but it was nice to not have the si [...]

      Letitia and Lawrence. This was a bit lackluster but I still enjoyed it for it's warmth. More realistic than I am used to in bodice rippers ; )Leticia and Lawrence meet briefly at a ball and have a surprisingly heart felt conversation that ends with them promising to correspond in future. It's not love at first sight or even lust. But as the letters come and go, they fall in love over their written words. It was a sweet and easy read.

      CuteA fun little novella. I want to know more about everyone. How is Annabella doing with her doctor? How are the rogues? And spies?

      2.5Lady Leticia and Lord Basingstoke meet in London, establish a friendship and begin corresponding. They fall in love through letters but don't realize it until they're face-to-face again. But then gossip and past loves create a bit of a hiccup for them before they get their HEA. This was fairly boring. It was sweet, but not much happening, not much interaction or chemistry. I did like the correspondence friendship and how that revealed the characters' personalities, but this didn't engage me v [...]

      Sweet Heyer Style RomanceVery sweet romance. I loved it and only wish that it was longer. Up to the amateur performance of Much Ado About Nothing, all flowed beautifully. Then basically both villains vanished without a trace and I felt a lack of resolution as the story jumped over to the wedding. Yet it is a little gem and very worth reading. The exchange of letters was a very good idea.

      Ick. Didn't care for this one. I wouldn't say I hate it (thus the 2 stars), but there wasn't anything all that redeeming about this, either. I liked the heroine, but the whole story felt too rushed. I know it's a novella, but that doesn't mean you can rush through the story to try and fit it into a novella length.

      A little disappointedThough I enjoyed visiting with the Grenville family again, I was surprised that the author got Lord John's wedding date wrong. In Lord John's dilemma it clearly states the wedding was on Christmas eve. But this story sai it was after Christmas twice. Otherwise delightful story

      This was a fun and easy to read novella. There are obviously other books before this one, but I didn't have any problems figuring out who was who and how they were related. I will look for more in this series to see how the full length books compare to the novella.

      Delightful little taleGood characters, interesting story. Short but sweet, with snippets and glimpses of past characters. Altogether a fun, though quick read. Happy to have this one in my library.

      Enjoyed the others in this series more than this one but still a good book. 3.5 StarsContent: Clean

      Too short!I loved this wonderful tale. It was so charming and fun. Writing letters is a list art, it was great to see love form from the words on a page.

    13. Mary on said:

      I wish this had more than a novella. What there was was great! I loved the parrot & monkey!

    14. Keri on said:

      Cute storyIt was a very quick read but nonetheless, quite sweet. It included characters from the earlier books which is always enjoyed.

    15. Canda on said:

      I love this author's style. This a great 3rd book in this series--though you don't have to have read the first two to read it, it's nice to know the other people's stories as they interact.
