Lovely Little Novella!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Governess Affair (The Brothers Sinister) (Kindle Edition)
I loved this novella and read it in a couple of hours, the whole story is actually very sweet and I really liked the two main characters. Hugo didn't lack substance like alot of historical romance heroes often do and he was kind enough to Serena without being completely sappy by the end. The reader hears about his childhood in snippets throughout the book, this makes us admire him without pity and you can then understand why he is as 'ruthless' as described. Serena has gotten herself into a right mess and so sits outside the Duke's front door for days, however, she isn't insipid or selfish and I thought she was a likeable character. The other characters such as Freddy, her sister, and the Duke himself are all portrayed well too.
A lovely story that I wish I hadn't read so fast, for only 72p!! Definitely going to check out some of Milan's other books :)
