Straight and True: A Regency Novella

Justice Joy
Regency Romance

"'Winning a man’s heart takes time, you know,' he said as they walked, 'though not as much time as winning a lady’s.'"

Isabella Reed has always been in love with Nathan Trammell, but they've never seemed to have a chance, even if they do live right next to each other.  That's about to change.  Now that she's at a houseparty at Nathan's home, and with her aunt instead of her mother.  Plus, Nathan's cousin, Alexander Brent won't be there, a thorn in her side since they were kids.  At least, she didn't think he'd be there.  Alexander has a plan though.  Newly home from traveling, he is determined to have disrupt Isabella's plans once and for all.  Because he knows she shouldn't be with Nathan.  He should.  Now, if only he can convince Isabella of that.

My Opinion: This book was totally cute and delightful.  Of course, it was fairly predictable, but it was the little details that made it a wonderful read, despite it's light story.  I loved the main characters and the simple, classic romance.  It reminded me slightly of Austen's Emma - a delightful romance with a few quirks and turns along the way.  A great choice for a quick tromp through Regency England and a merry romance.  I'd highly recommend this one.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
