I love a story of a lady being paired with someone below her "station". A man with money and a title is great and all but a man not being born into money and a title and still manages to snatch himself a place in life, well, that demands respect.
It was with that thought in mind that I read this novella.
I have always preferred full-length novels. Short stories rarely give me the details I need to feel connected with the characters. It is the same way I feel about Aaron and Diana too. Everything happened so fast. I have not read any of the Spindle Cove stories so maybe they have known each other for a while. I just don't know their history. I do like the characterization of both Aaron and Diana, but their relationship seemed too easy for my taste. Too fast, too easy, too unfeeling. It was ok for a quick easy read.
