    1. This was so funny in places I couldn’t stop laughing. After Berk’s friend was killed by his wife, with a poker iron to the head, and Berk went to his friend’s funeral and the casket was open and the mortician did a lousy job fixing Arrington’s face Berk became obsessed with poker irons and thinking Miranda and Pippa were mad and were going to bash their husband’s heads in when they got mad at them. Then he starts thinking Tessie was mad too and was keeping an eye on all the poker irons [...]

    2. This one was enjoyable and slightly different from the rest, a good mix up. I don't think that I will read the rest of the series as I'm not as interested in the story lines. The author seems to use this series of novellas to dump ant small ideas she has had for stories, sometimes relating to her other series. This makes it confusing and has made me loose interests.of I where the author I would have done books 2, 3 and 4 and then left it.

    3. In this novella, a gentleman swears off marriage after his friend is murdered by his wife. However, he rethinks his pact when he meets Theresa Birkin and finds she is a beautiful breath of fresh air and someone he is willing to take a risk marrying.While the writing was good, the story itself was a average and not that believable. Berks (our hero) says some pretty terrible things to Tessie and I'm shocked she was able to look past them and find Berks honorable. I wouldn't have wanted him that's [...]

    4. Not as satisfying as other Ava Stone storiesThis is Berks' and Tessie's story. After the murder of a life long friend by his wife, Berks swears off women. Tessie still suffers from her ruination. I was really put off by Berks' attitude that a woman would have to be mad to want to kill a philandering husband or to get involved with a notorious rogue. Nothing was the man's fault. His change of heart does not seem genuine. His character also does not seem to match from pervious stories.

    5. Funny dialogue between the two protagonists. The hero was a real jerk at first but also came across as someone who spoke too honestly for company which is not really being a jerk but just socially inept. After a very rocky start the author deftly brought the two together. The other two couples were very interesting, I want to find their stories. Liked this "new to me" author very much.

    6. Sin and redemptionTessie loved the wrong man, and it nearly ruined her, except only a few people know, and they've sworn to secrecy. One of those was Harry, who confided in his brother, Berks. When Berks meets Tessie, he's enchanted. But he keeps saying the wrong thing, hurting her, then apologizing. It's a very bumpy ride indeed on the road to their Happily Ever After.
