    One thought on “Just A Kiss”

    1. 3.5 - Not Your Average Historical Fiction Stars!I am not a huge reader of historical fiction, I pretty much left the genre behind when I graduated from the Mills & Boon training school of Romance I do however like a good story, so never say never! That is why you find me in the polite society of 1811, enjoying Charlotte Lightwood's Debutante Season with her. What struck me the most about this book is that although it is 100% Historical fiction, there are a few modern twists thrown in that ma [...]

    2. Just a Kiss is a novella in the It’s in His Kiss series and looks like a fantastic start. At just over 100 pages, the two do fall in love pretty quickly but that’s what you expect in a novella but, an important thing for me, I didn’t feel cheated by the length of the story. Broadfield gives her readers a complete, and amazingly sweet, story in just about 100 pages. Marley is your typical lord – concerned about his title, his position in society and the future of his line. But he also lov [...]

    4. Light and sweet, Just a Kiss was an enjoyable historical romance novella. I liked this quick read. It was a sweet novella.Sebastian and Charlotte were both great. Charlotte was determined not to let her sister-in-law take control of her life and was strong enough to follow through. Sebastian was sweet, though a bit oblivious to what was right in front of him. But, still adorable. I liked both characters.The romance was good. It took a while to actually progress, though, so that slowed down the b [...]

    11. more like 4.5 This was an enjoyable and sweet historical. Being that it's a novella, it's just over a hundred pages only. I will admit the first 20% of the book was good, but slow. I found my dislike for the sister-in-law and horrid Horace straight off the bat. I loved Charlotte, even though she didn't have much she was determined not to marry Horace despite her sister-in-law’s insistence. She won even more marks from me when she punched him in the eye for pinching her bum. Then going over her [...]

    17. This was a quick read that I really enjoyed. From the first page I was curious about the characters. Charlotte the heroine was instantly a favorite. She was a strong young woman of her era, not just a wallflower or a quiet mouse, she tended to do and speak her mind. But she did it all with style and the occasional spark of humor.The hero of the story is Sebastian. Just the name does it for me. I can easily picture a noble gentlemen who loves and dotes on his grandmother, but at the same time as [...]

    21. Anyone can see how this story endsHad there been just a bit more danger, illicit lust, overwhelming angeror maybe if the horrible Horace had been more horriden this book would get more stars. As it was, the tension that usually builds in a romance of this type NEVER appeared. The hero tends mildly to his grandmother, who obviously adores him. To me, there was never any question that he could bring home any remotely acceptable female and she would be delighted. As a villainess, Elizabeth disappoi [...]

Or course, this bei [...]

    23. See more of my reviews on my blog Thoughts At One In The Morning.My Thoughts:Muahaha! I love the "Let's pretend to be courting so that people will think things" that ends up leading to some mixed emotions. I remember when I started the story, I was like, "Must see where this goes." And I liked where it went.Charlotte and Sebastian think they're just helping each other out, but it becomes so much more. It's almost like there needs to be a disclaimer when people do this: Never kiss. Because the se [...]

    28. I didn’t know what to expect when starting Ms. Broadfield’s Just a Kiss, but I was pleasantly surprised as I got underway.
