I'm going with a 5 star rating because writing a good, short romance is very difficult as it is hard to get the pacing just right. There are elements of the pacing I believe could be better, but for a 17 page story I'd say Ms. Allen knows her stuff. While I would prefer a greater ratio of lengthy sentences to short sentences her sentence variance is decent and it draws attention to the elements she desires to highlight. If she were to write a longer regency romance I would definitely feel confident in purchasing the book and giving it a go. Humorous with a neat little twist at the beginning, I would feel comfortable giving this to any regency romance fan of any age. If you're looking for a light snack between longer books, or a general pick-me-up on a gray day, give this charming tale a try.
