By day, I'm a domestic violence prosecutor. By night, I read romance to restore my faith in love, relationships, and humanity in general.
This is an entertaining enough novella about the beautiful and gently bred Diana Highwood thwarting her mama's ambitions to marry her off to a lord when she falls for the village blacksmith instead. Their story is sweet, for what it is. However, the novella ends with the wedding, even though the really interesting part of a romance involving such significant class and social divisions is not how the lovers come together but rather how they can find a way to stay together once reality sinks in.
