    I hope you eventually have time to write a bit more for these.

    My first thought at the end was; “Where’s the rest of the book?”

    What a lovely story–I really enjoyed it, and would love to read more of these characters.

    What a wonderful story! Obviously I have to expand my preferred reading genres to include Regency – but only of other Regency stories/romances are as fantastic as this one! Thank you in any case for this reading experience.

    • I love Regency, Mary Jo. Right now, I’m reading a Mary Balogh book. She’s one of my favorites. But there are lots of other great Regency writers, including Mary Jo Putney, Jo Beverly, and our own Anthea Lawson. (Anthea has a Regency in the upcoming Christmas Ghosts of Fiction River.) Quite a world to explore–and I’m sure you’ll get other recommendations for readers if you just ask.

    Nuncheon? Near the end.

    Oh, I love this story. Nicholas makes a delicious hero and I would love to watch his relationship with Adam grow over the years. Simply delightful story.

    Really liked the story. Is this a part of a series? I would love to read more. I really liked Nicholas and Adam. I could see so much more.
    Great story!
