Update: We finished the liveblog. Visit SmartBitches for the full transcript. The recap of this novella would be as follows: Smart heroine but a hero who was a jerk and wasn’t very effectively redeemed. Author tried to stick too many plot twists in the 15K length and it made the HEA very forced. I would have given the novella a C-.
Tune in to SmartBitches Saturday night at 9EST/8CST for another SB&J live blog.
We agreed that the format would be much better suited to a novella. Sarah picked Annie Burrows’ Notorious Lord, Compromised Miss since she’s a “total, total mad hatted loony fan for historical romance and for plot lines wherein a heroine makes herself fugly for whatever reason.”
Can I just say that the title is totally Harlequin Presents, Historical Style? In a contemporary, that title would read: Dangerous Tycoon, Innocent Wife.
