Hannah Walpole has been forced by her parents to return to England from the African continent she she can have a London Season. She does not fit in with English Society nor her own cousins. Her debuet was held back because her uncle didn't think she was ready. At a house party, she is having a wardrobe malfunction - her garter clip has twisted and is pinching the back of her knee. She attempts to find the WC, but finds Lord Miles Whitely. Hannah can't reach the offending garter clip so Miles volunteers to help. Hannah's cousins have warned her about Miles and she vows to stay away from her. Something about Hannah intrigues Miles. Could it be that she is the only lady not fanning herself in the extreme heat or isn't sweating? It is odd the things that start a romance.
I was so sad when the novella came to an end. Hannah was such strong, independent and unique character that I wish there had been more to the novel. Miles was charming and seductive. This is one of the best novellas that I have read.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
