Setting: England, December 1813
Genre: Romance
This novella is part of the Tenacious Trents series.
Lady Madeline is visiting one of her brothers and his wife, along with another brother and their mom. She hears, by accident, that the marriage between her parents wasn't legal. She goes for a walk to think about the ramifications of her being a bastard. Meanwhile, the snow has delayed Lachlan Grant, the Marquess of Brachton, from going to Scotland. His intention is to go to Edinburgh to find a Scottish lass to marry, then go on to spend the rest of the holiday with his family. Madeline wanders onto Lachlan's land and falls through the ice on his lake. He saves her, carries her inside, undresses her (and dresses her in a nightshirt), and warms her - by getting into bed with her. When she introduces herself as Maddie (because she assumes she is no longer a Lady) and says she was traveling with Jordan Trent, Lachlan assumes she is Jordan's mistress. He knew Jordan at school, and they always competed over women. So, how far will Lachlan go with "Jordan's mistress"? What will happen when her family finds her at his home, where the only other people are his valet and cook?
This was a sweet, entertaining story. The characters and plot were well-rounded and it felt complete. Jane Charles has a true talent for the novella. I've read/listened to other novellas she wrote and was very satisfied.
Narration is great, because Marian Hussey.

Quick and very satisfiying read and listen..

I’ve read several of Jane Charles’s Trent books and have loved them all. She has a way of writing that makes everything interesting. And this novella was no different.

It was about Lachlan who wanted to get back to Scotland from England so he could find himself a good, sturdy Scottish bride, until he saw Madeline fall through the frozen ice outside his manor. And, so begins their love story.

It was short but sweet, and somewhat sexual, a little bit of fooling around.

As to the narration: I know it was silly but I spent the $1.99 on the audible version because Marian Hussey was narrating and I do enjoy her narration. Her voices are great and her emotions are awesome.
