Nobody knows who Miss Rose Sweetly is, and she prefers it that way. She’s a shy, mathematically-minded shopkeeper’s daughter who dreams of the stars. Women like her only ever come to attention through scandal. She’ll take obscurity, thank you very much.

All of England knows who Stephen Shaughnessy is. He’s an infamous advice columnist and a known rake. When he moves into the house next door to Rose, she discovers that he’s also wickedly funny, devilishly flirtatious, and heart-stoppingly handsome. But when he takes an interest in her mathematical work, she realizes that Mr. Shaughnessy isn’t just a scandal waiting to happen. He’s waiting to happen to her…and if she’s not careful, she’ll give in to certain ruination.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it Courtney Milan excels at writing short and sweet novellas. She's probably the only author whose novellas I find to be very satisfying in its length. When I read novellas, I almost always wish they were longer simply because I always feel like something is missing. I think I read 4 of Ms. Milan's novellas, and I am extremely satisfied with all of them, which is amazing cuz that almost never happens with me and novellas. I loved Stephen since The Suffragette Scandal and I was very excited to see that he was paired up with an Anglo-African woman. Even though their marriage will be scorned by many people, I have full faith it will survive. That is a great thing to accomplish in a novella and Ms. Milan did it. P. S: For some reason, I thought of Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison as the heroine and hero of this novella lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Talk Sweetly to Me A wonderful end to the excellent Brothers Sinister series. Courtney Milan is a superb story teller, and this series is my favourite. To get the most out of reading them it's best to read them in order, starting with The Governess Affair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Talk Sweetly to Me Once again Courtney Milan has combined topics not usually found in romance novels (a detailed study of astronomy and the lives of black Victorians) and created a very engaginng novel. I always eagerly anticipate her new works. She never disappoints.
