This was a fun story. I liked both characters. Reggie was funny and kind of quirky... not what I expect of women of that era. But then again, I suppose that was her draw even for the men of that era. And Nicholas made me laugh at times, how utterly adverse to marriage as he was. But at the same time, I sort of wanted to smack them both. Lots of times. First, Nicholas who was just such a jerk during their engagement. But I would smile when he'd get jealous. And then I wanted to kick him really hard in the family jewels when he left her on their wedding day. Really?! You're going to leave her with the spawn of the devil aka "Mother"? I'm glad he decided to come back on his own, but sheesh. But their constant second guessing of each other and their inability to just SPEAK their feelings grated on my nerves. At the same time, it was a nice HEA, so I'm happy for that. And I'll continue with the series.
