The Forgotten Motto: A Gentleman Never Tells | FactoryTwoFour
Lighthearted, romantic novella, which managed to capture all the regular intrigue and challenges of a usual regency romance, in a compact form. Very enjoyable, and I love a main character that would rather read than... well, anything.
For the first time—and in her experience, the last time—her husband had been a little defensive, even a trifle ashamed. “I never lied. He knows perfectly well that we will lead separate lives.” I refuse to allow you to wither away in bed simply because your husband was infatuated with Shady Sadie, Cat said, using the term by which the gossip rags had referred to Adrian’s mistress. You must put all that behind you. Sadie has another protector, and you are out of mourning. It’s time to stop hiding. It had happened almost six years ago, but she could still remember her stupefaction. She’d been such a silly goose.

I couldn’t do that, Cat said, in a sudden digression. Mr. Lyddle has developed a most unfortunate addiction to strong ale, and he’s regularly found lying about in the gutter singing, rather than butchering meat. Being a novella it was, of course, short. And while it was a full story unto itself, the brevity seemed to put the author at somewhat a disadvantage. We’re basically dropped into a situation where the leading man Apparently has some impulse issues and the leading lady has been through enough with out his sudden decision that he’s madly in love with her. It’s all very whizz-bang sudden from zero to over-the-moon, let’s-get-married-yesterday with out a lot of fuss and bother with things like getting to know each other. Yet somehow the man “just Knows” everything about her with out being told or having any sort of mystical powers. She’s had it rather rough when it comes to men. He doesn’t help that much with his abrupt wooing.In any case, if you decide you want to give it a read, I suggest waiting until it’s on sale because while it may be worth a dollar or two, I certainly wouldn’t buy it for more than three. Who does the butchering now? Lizzie asked, instantly deciding to take a walk to the village and see this interesting musical event herself.The estate is entailed, he had told her, glancing around the dark sitting room. It goes to some distant cousin, along with the title, of course. I told your father that I wouldn’t be averse to trying for a child, once we’ve had time to get used to each other. I would prefer to take supper on a tray.” Lizzie didn’t look up from her book, because meeting her sister’s eyes would only encourage her. An hour or so after their wedding ceremony, Adrian had brought Lizzie, still wrapped in her bridal veil, to his mother’s faded, musty house, and informed her that he had no intention of living with her.
