I think that imagining Lady Esme writing down these novellas is why they have such a special emotional impact on me. And for that, I am truly grateful because I always end up having a big satisfaction every time I read one of those stories, just like it happened with "One Night with an Earl".
This was a lovely novella in which the interaction between the hero and the heroine was touching, sensual and sweet altogether. In just a matter of pages we are drawn into a masquerade where the main purpose—which is having fun and, er, well, don't be shy but enjoy the company of others—takes the shape of something deeper: love. And being this love a past one to never been declared, doesn't this just make the story even better? Of course, this from a reader's perspective, the characters may have appreciated a different turn of events...
Another great novella in the House of Trent series to devour and to let yourself be lost in. Peachy, just like Lady Esme and Jennifer Haymore's writing!
