Review: The Duke's Brother by Heather B. Moore

Heidi Reads... The Duke's Brother by Heather B. Moore

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing


Mr. Gregory Clark is having an awful day, and it only gets worse when he’s run over by … a woman. Mabel Russell reluctantly visits her sister in London for the Season, even though she’d rather stay in the country cataloging insects and aphids. When she runs into Mr. Clark, quite literally, she’s afraid to show any interest, especially since he’s a member of the dreaded Ton. But getting to know Mr. Clark becomes an unexpected delight.

*Note for readers: THE DUKE'S BROTHER was previously published in A Timeless Romance Anthology: All Regency Collection

My Review

This is a great novella, with well-rounded and interesting characters, a plot that can be quickly solved but also kept me reading to find out how everything played out, and bits of humor thrown in that made me smile :) The Regency genre is known for its formality and adherence to the rules of the ton, so it's always refreshing to read about those like Mabel and Gregory, who have interests and dreams outside of what society expects of them. Even though they are following their own non-conformist dreams, they didn't seem too modern since they still were polite and well-behaved. A perfectly enjoyable story that made me imagine how their happily-ever-after would continue, just what I look for in a novella!
