A Little Thing Called Love - Review

A Little Thing Called Love - Marrying the Duke #0.5
by Cathy Maxwell

What they say: Grandmother, grandmother, who shall it be

Who shall it be who will marry me?
Duke, Earl, a powerful marquess?
When my heart is given to Fyclan Morris…

In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell's new novella, beautiful Jennifer Tarleton has no lack of noble suitors, but the only man who captures her attention is the one her father will never let her marry: Fyclan Morris. He's a brash adventurer, witty, courageous…and Irish!Even worse, her father blames her for their reversal of fortune…

And it's a fortune—or rather, his grandmother the fortune teller—who foretold that Fyclan would meet "the one,", a love prophesied in the stars. He vows nothing will stand in the way of making Jennifer his bride, but is the price too high? Or is a thing called love worth every challenge?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: With historical fiction it's often quite hard to visualise the setting or to appreciate a character's back story. In A Little Thing Called Love Cathy Maxwell has created a fun novella to introduce the Morris family before we get to meet them all fully in The Match of the Century (coming soon).

Jennifer Tarleton hates being paraded around by her unscrupulous father. He views her as a prized possession, to be sold off with aims of furthering his social climbing and to pay off his debts. Jennifer wants to marry for love and hates being judge purely on her beauty.  

Fyclan Morris believes in destiny. He trusts a prediction from his fortune teller grandmother, and is convinced from their first meeting they are destined to be together. The problems? He's not titled, he's earned his own fortune, he's Irish and Jennifer's father hates him.  

Jennifer doesn't want a marriage of convenience, she wants a loving family of her own. She wants to be free to pursue her own interests and to live her life. Fyclan is a very modern man and wants Jennifer for more than just her looks. 

I really liked them together and had my fingers crossed for a HEA. I liked both of the characters and felt as though the novella served as a great introduction to the series.

4 Stars in my Sky!
