USA Today-bestselling author Sherry Thomas loves nothing more than the mix of explosive action and combustible romance. In her career so far, she has written more romance than action, but she is making up for it with a YA fantasy trilogy and a wuxia-inspired duology. Her books regularly receive starred reviews and best-of-the-year honors from trade publications, including such outlets as the New York Times and National Public Radio. She is also a two-time winner of Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® Award.
And by the way, English is her second language.

A beautiful, albeit very short, story dedicated to Clarissa, the adoring step-mother to Christian, the hero of Beguiling the Beauty (book 1 of Fitzhugh Trilogy). You get a glimpse of the past- her bad marriage to the deceased Duke of Lexington and how she came to know the love of her life, Mr. James Kingston.
Sherry Thomas's writing is exceptional as usual and she made me crave more of this couple. I certainly wouldn't have minded a few more chapters. Actually, that's my only complaint, the length of this novella.
Recommended. Better if you pick up the series afterwards to know more about Clarissa and Christian.
