I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful it was to read such a well-researched story! I had only one little misgiving - in chapter seven Caroline dances with her brother. I'm not sure that would have been appropriate, although I admit my lacking knowledge on how these rules change upon engagement.
As a story I found this absolutely delightful and, while not exactly Jane Austen good (no one can beat her, ever), it was at least Georgette Heyer good - and that is extremely good.
Thank you for this! I'll be reading For Your Sake soon!

You made me cry! Big crocodile tears! Excellent job of conveying emotion. Two very big thumbs up!

I really enjoyed it, and love how deep your characters are. Although they don't quite grow in the story, many different shades to them are seen and they become quite real.
I liked how even wet and cold Daniel wanted to do propose in the way that was proper.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it (all in one sitting!) and look forward to your other stories.

This has to be the saddest chapter I've ever read on fictionpress. I commend you for it, for being able to make me so emotional. I was reading this in the car (during the ride on my iPhone) and I had finished it just before I was about to park I was having the HARDEST TIME EVER getting a grip on myself and trying not to cry. I didn't want to look like a mess in front of company, but god, if I had been home Im sure I wouldve been crying my eyes out.

I liked the story though I would have wanted Daniel to work harder to earn Caroline's love more at the end.. She forgave him too easily in my opinion. I like the way you write old stories. I wish I could write in this style as well. Sadly,I have no knowledge on how to go on about stories set in this time and era. So, I'll just live vicariously through your writing! Good job

Ah! I love your stories! I love how everything unfolded and all the tear-jerking, moments'. I was cyring, like wanting to sob cry!I like how you write most of your stories in the old, England days. They take much more work to write and the way they speak is so, well i dont know how to say it, but it just draws me in. But the part where Daniel proposes to Caroline and she accepts, just like that, I think that's kind of weird. Because if it were me, I would have put up more of a fight, I would have made him prove to me that he actaully loves me! No offense, it just my oppinion!
The review is getting long so Ima go away, but I love your stories, and I will read your other stories!

I know that's getting repetitive but that's the truth...

Finally! I thought they would never marry :P I'm sad that Andrew had to die though; he didn't seem like a bad guy :/ Anyways, awesome job (as usual) :D

I like how all your stories connect and the way you started off this one. I can't wait to read more because I know you always do an amazing job :)

ughh your female protagonists are wayy too forgiving with their men! she should have made him suffer for a little while longer! instead of forgiving him right away when he caem after her in the country side, she should have shooed him away and had him grovel on his feet on trying to get her back. but that's ok. i still liked it. sort of. it reminds me of jane austen's stories man. what with the cheesy endings and all.

ah! new story from you! i'm so excited! i need to keep checking your profile and seeing if there's any new stories! i just love your writing!

I recall reading a bit of this story way back when, and enjoying it, but being too busy to read on, so I've returned to read more. The first chapter is great. As for my constructive criticism, it'd be that the word "hello" wasn't used in the Regency era. It's something I find a lot of regency romance writers (even published ones) making. If you check the etymology of the word "hello" it dates back to when it was first used in 1877. So, yes, I know this is nit-picking but it just bugged me a bit. Otherwise, splendid writing, promising characters...must read on!

I almost cried after Daniel told Caroline that she was a liar. It was so cruel of him to do that to her.
Honestly, i don't think that Daniel'd grovelling was enough. He should have done more. And Caroline shouldn't have been so quick to forgive him.

Have you used oliver's charector in any of the other stories?- He seems familiar.
