Sweet and satisfying
Setting: England, December 1813
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.

Touching and Sweet
I truly enjoyed my evening listening to this story. I kind of wished it didn't have end.
