"A Widow Determined to be Merry

At the urging of her best friend, Caroline, Lady Ballister, seeks a lover with no emotional attachments. After all, experience has taught her that love is a fickle, pointless thing.

A Duke Determined to Marry

Sutbridge has wanted Caroline for ten years and, now that she is once again free, is determined to make her his wife. But will he settle for her body, or wage a war for the most important treasure of all: her heart?"


Truthfully, I find novellas and short stories to be a tricky thing. 

the shorter the story, the less mistakes you are allowed to make. 

Want to know the weird thing about this one? Once I finished it, I felt as satisfied as if I read a full lengh regency novel. 

I guess it's because the attraction was apparent, as was the love. 

The characters had enough depth, and the plot was achieved. 

The problem is I'm not sure what to say much about it. it's a short fun read. 20 minutes tops. And once I finished reading it, I knew the author made it as long as it was supposed to be, nothing left to be clarified and it wasn't dragging. 

I'll certainly check more books by Sabrina Darby.
