A Lady's Favor

About the novella: Lord Strapshire is the most-eligible bachelor in town, and he has set his sights on the lovely Bianca Davidson. It’s too bad that Bianca finds him to be an insufferable boor. In order to deflect his attention, Bianca plans to ask Mathew Hensley to pretend to court her. The problem is, Bianca hasn’t spoken to Mr. Hensley since they were both involved in a particularly embarrassing incident years before. But he owes her a favor, and Mr. Hensley might be Bianca’s only hope.

My review: I love that Shadow Mountain's Proper Romance line has had a few novellas come out this year as well as the full-length romances. This is one of those. I like novellas because they are quick, easy reads. I think it took me a total of about an hour to read this whole book.

Bianca is a great character in this book. I love that she knows her own mind, and in a time when young women didn't have a whole lot of choice as to what happened in their lives, she chooses to make her own way and let her mother know that her way is how it is going to be.

I also liked Matthew. He is a neighbor of Bianca's who owes her a favor because of something that happened in their youth. She feels that she can go to him and ask him to help her get rid of Lord Strapshire so that she won't have to marry the man. He is a true gentleman and agrees to help her immediately. But neither of them plans on what happens next. 

This is a cute, clean, satisfying novella. A happy way to spend an afternoon!

I was sent an e-copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.
