Review of Belinda's Secret

Review of my free short story Belinda's Secret.
Belinda has read her father’s newspapers, listened at keyholes, and learned all the scandals attached to Derrek, Lord Hawkestone’s, name. She decides he’ll fit her requirements perfectly. Not that Belinda’s requirements are likely to match her father’s plans for her, but she just wants to succeed in two insignificant things before settling down into a miserable boring marriage.

From nicely formal dialog in pleasantly formal gardens, to the unsettling needs of orphans in a run-down mansion, author Maggi Andersen recreates a long-ago world with vivid clarity. Rumors, arranged marriages, poverty and aristocracy all play their part. Society rocks to the sound of finance and propriety, and Belinda plans to be obedient eventually, but just for now… Meanwhile Derrek plans to play the part laid out in rumor, until things change.

A lovely quick historical romance, Belinda’s Secret is the perfect accompaniment to your morning coffee or afternoon tea.

Disclosure: I was lucky enough to find a free ecopy.
