Yours And Mine
By A.E Bennett
Hardcover ~ Paperback ~ Kindle
She told a lie. He confirmed it. Now they’re secretly betrothed against their families’ wishes…
Lady Octavia Dorchester is the most desired young lady in the Realm. Now that she has twenty years behind her, society has deemed her ready to marry. Although she’s not enthusiastic, she promises to act like a proper lady and look for a good husband—just like her powerful father Lord Roman Dorchester wants.
Lord Gerald Verte has been painfully shy his entire life. He’s never been comfortable in society and lives in the shadow of his older brother, the imposing Lord Tristian Verte. Despite his desires to remain indoors and away from people, he promises his older brother that he won’t shame the family name, no matter how much his anxiety threatens to overwhelm him.
After sharing a dance at a ball held in Octavia’s honor, both she and Gerald know what no one else believes—it’s love at first sight. When their respective family members object to the match, Octavia lies about their betrothal and Gerald corroborates her story. Raising the ire of both Lords Dorchester and Verte, Octavia and Gerald are torn apart and kept from one another until tragedy strikes.
This high-heat romance with a guaranteed HEA is a prequel to Gathering of the Four: Book One of the Serrulata Saga but can be read as a standalone.
After reading Gathering of the Four (The Serrulata Saga Book 1) I fell in love with Bennett’s writing. So when I seen this Novella, I had to read it. I’m so thankful for this opportunity!
For such a short book, this one really packs a punch. Lady Octavia is of the age ready for marrying, and she’s the one all the gents want to scoop up. Lord Gerald is also in the market for marriage, however, he’s shy and a bit awkward. Let me just say, this time era is one of my favorites. The fact that parents put their children on display for suitors at a certain age is mind blowing to me. I love reading about the balls and getting different perspectives. The chemistry Bennett creates between Lady Octavia & Lord Gerald was done beautifully. I found this story tugging on my emotions and raising the tension. I don’t want to give anything away, so let me just say this. Grab Gathering of the Four, then this book and read them as soon as possible! The second book in the The Serrulata Saga, Test of the Four will be coming out soon! This is a phenomenal beginning and you won’t want to miss it.
