That said the characters are likable, but I still regret the 99p I wasted on this novella
THE AUTUMN DUCHESS was a quick and easy read but also my least favorite in this series, although admittedly I haven't read book one yet. And while I'd highly recommend reading books two and three together because of connecting characters, this one on the other hand is pretty much a standalone novella. The story more or less reminds me of Beauty and the Beast, if Beauty had been not quite a beauty but more your average looking spinster, and minus any spells or magic of course...
And although the story does have some heavy subject matter, Ms. Eaton keeps the tone on the lighter side. As for the characters, I truly liked Hannah and even Evan, who my heart just about broke for. I do think their romance was really rushed however and that this is one tale that would have been better served as a full-length novel. There are also a couple of sex scenes (without intercourse) which were still pretty hot though, so if you're looking for a clean read this would not be it.
Overall it was definitely an enjoyable read, but I really wish Hannah and Evan had spent more time together instead of just small snippets here and there. I think that would've made their relationship and the "I love you's" much more believable when they came. I also noticed around a dozen typos, and one part where Hannah's maid goes from blonde to dark haired. It was still a lovely little historical romance though and I'm looking forward to Cadence (Hannah's sister) and Colebrook's story next.
Ages: Hannah (26) Evan (30)

It is off page, how the Duke helped her family and if they were able to curtail their problem of spending. Yes, he states what he will do, but I wanted a come to Jesus moment where he talked to the mother and sisters. Nothing was mentioned and I felt it needed to be. Nor how the father felt being bailed out. Also, the h hired all these people, and they were in the H's house, and he hated people in his home. He never mentions this to her or anyone, I found that should have been included.
There isn't the actual sex act, but several foreplay moments, within marriage, heat level 2.5-3 out of 5. The story ends too abruptly with the H having a huge change of heart where the h is concerned. This would have played out better as a full novel.
We have no cheating, no cliffhanger except for the h's sister and friend (their story is already out). We get a quick HEA, some romance, and a very small bite of spice. (ljb)
Rather confusing, I do adored The Winter Duke from beginning to conclusion, but with this one I got a taste of honey but nothing else.
So yes the main couple is like night on day with the one from the follow book (even if one of the last in a series and the second the first in a new one).
The author is talent to draw the characters dilemma and thoughts, I have no complaints about that, but it was disturbing to end the book on a cliffhanger such a this one.
Hannah is a kind and caring woman, so much she is willing to sacrifice her own happiness to save her family by offering a chocking proposal.
Evan, The Duke Of Wycliffe never intended to accept but he is here now married to a stranger, a pretty stranger but still a stranger.
He has all his life repressed so much angers and pains as years went by, he is now unable to face the others glances.
They will found a way to make it work, with some nice spearing but not as much wits as between Cadence and Justin.
Plus I would have loved to see a full bedroom scene as their marriage was not consulted until the far end of the book.
In all, it is a lovely story but read it before The Winter Duke, and skip the epilogue or you will reread it in this book.
