Miss Hippolyta Royle was kidnapped by the Duke of Montgomery. The Duke's housekeeper helped Hippolyta escape. She had fallen down, was covered in who knows what and was cold, wet and miserable. Hippolyta was able to flag down a carriage. The owner of the carriage, Matthew Mortimer, does not believe Hippolyta is the wealthiest heiress in England but still helps her.
I liked Hippolyta in "Duke of Sin" and loved her in her own novella. I was so glad that she got her HEA (no matter how much I adore Val, he was so naughty in kidnapping her). Hippolyta was intelligent and a strong woman that deserved her true love. Matthew was the perfect match for her. He didn't care that her mother was Indian and helped her thwart her blackmailer.
That being said, I wish the book could have been longer to give more plot development. It felt rushed, like an after thought. As if it needed to be hurried so the readers would know what happened to Hippolyta. I was left loving the novella but wanting more from it.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
