    Maybe it was the edition I read but there were so many errors. There was not much story just sex. The ending was not great. I don't get why Justin turned into a jerk because she said no to marriage once. That was annoying because of those I am not rating this high.

    Katherine and Justin meet again after Katherine becomes a widow. Having their love thwarted by her father years ago they lived different lives. This is a very short, very sweet romance. I loved every minute of it. Justin's adoration of Katherine is sweetly funny and I just loved his uncle. A perfect ending. Katherine and Justin meet again after Katherine becomes a widow.

She fell in love with him but her father married her off to that nasty man who had all those debts. He wanted his daughter to have a title and riches. One day the very man who saved her life comes to her home to ask for her services in finding him a wife. There are a lot of twists and turns in this story, it kept me on my toes. I wanted to know what the conclusion would be. Would she get the man she'd always loved or not and how would they get to that point. I adored the characters and there were numerous very hot scenes. This book is certainly worth the read. It's risqué business regency style! Be sure to check out this book because it's fun, sensual and a mystery of love! It's a 5 STAR Deal my dears!

    Kitty and Justin were forced apart years ago by her father, but her unexpected widowhood gives them a second chance. Justin is absolutely swoon-worthy as the man who never gave up on her, even when there was no hope. Kitty tries to take things slowly because her marriage was not something she wants to repeat, yet she can't deny the strength of her feelings for Justin. This is a hot and steamy love story made all the sweeter by Justin's dedication to Kitty despite all her emotional baggage.

    This short story is a great read for anyone that loves a steamy regency romp, but does not have a lot of time. The story itself is full of great detail and did not leave me feeling like I was missing something because of its length. Kat is a widow that has found a way to make a living. That is no easy feat in the regency period for a woman. Justin is just the man for her, but has a heck of a time getting her to realize that. They have history as well, making for an even more detailed back story. This short story is a great read for anyone that loves a steamy regency romp, but does not have a lot of time.

    A Regency Romp is a suitable description for this book, because it is little else. I was intrigued by the plot line of a woman rescued from French hands and not allowed to marry her captor, then forced to marry another. Now she is widowed and has a match making business to the ton. There is little beyond that to the book. There is little character development and the history between these two is just briefly referred to. There are long steamy scenes in the middle of the book.

    I enjoyed the story overall. The only issues I had were her father stating that she was an only child briefly after she was talking about her sister. (Flashback, but her sister is only 10 years younger and she was 17 or 19 at the time). The other one was the age of her son. It seemed to mention his age differently. Otherwise, I loved her chemistry with Justin. They were so HOT!!

    I enjoyed reading this book. Kitty is a very independent and strong woman. Justin is a loyal man who is confident that he know who and what he wants. And he wants Kitty. The passion they share is intense. I would have liked to read more about how they first met on the ship. How Justin saved Kitty.

    Longing For Happiness Through Dreams This book was so romantic. I loved it. To think that a man waited over eleven years for the woman he loved. That is a man worth keeping. I liked her sister Maggie because she always told her the truth about everything. This was an excellent book.

    A quick read True to its name, this was a risqué little story. It was enjoyable, but not much depth to the story. I think I would have really liked a regular-length novel of this story.
