This is a sweet second chance love story featuring Diana Vail and James Bryant, the Earl of Somerton.
Diana has fallen in love with James and believes he loves her too until she overhears his friends speculating about his relationship with Diana – they are sure he is just using her to keep his matchmaking momma at bay, they also heard that James slept with Diana’s widowed mother!! Diana is so distraught by this news that she finds James, slaps him, and tells him she never wants to see him again!
Months pass as they meet again at the wedding of Lady Gwyn at Castle Keyvnor. James hasn’t gotten over Diana and has no idea why she was so upset, he was going to let her go, but seeing her again stirs up his feelings and he wants answers!!
Throw in a trio of ghosts that need to break a curse by helping a maiden find true love and you have a very fun story! This novella was well written, fun read with kissing only love scenes, a stubborn heroine, meddling ghosts, witches, gypsies, a pixie or ten, and a nail-biting ending.
This is the third book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone title. I enjoyed the story and would happily recommend this title. It should also be noted that this novella was featured in the anthology Beguiled at the Wedding: A Castle Keyvnor Anthology.
