…it didn’t particularly wow me, but it was a nice gentle read ~ Under the Covers
Miss Amelia Snow is infamous amoungst the ton for her beauty and also her cruel tongue. But soon after turning a new leaf and apologizing to the three girls, the “Ugly Ducklings”, whom she bullied the most she has come upon hard times and now works as a ladies companion. In her new circumstances she never expected to see Lord Quentin Fortescue the man she refused and broke his heart as well as her own, and she certainly never expected to still be in love with him after all this time. Could he still feel the same way?
After reading the Ugly Duckling books I wasn’t sure Manda Collins could turn it round and make me actually like Amelia Snow, but she did! Not only did I like her, I was rooting for her to get her man. It was great to see her such a changed person from the first class bitch she was in the other books and I am glad she got her happy ending.
Like with the previous Manda Collins book it didn’t particularly wow me, but it was a nice gentle read and it was nice to have that closure on the Ugly Duckling series. Essentially it was sweet and romantic, with a good hero and a surprisingly likable heroine and it kept me entertained.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
