| A Reticent Reader chapter 1 . 2/8
Though I don't think that not being chosen for tag is necessarily a big deal, I can see why six-year-old Serena held a grudge against the Duke. It must have also been lonely, I suppose. The humiliation didn't quite live up to the expectations I had for it, but that's all right because it's your story, not mine. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Serena and Derek are going to be love interests, though I wonder how that seven-year age gap will fit in. Perhaps it won't even come up? I like your writing style. I didn't see any mistakes in the grammar, so good job! I'm really enjoying the story so far.

I have read this story so many times, truly, I can't get enough I guess, I like the main protagonists bickering with each other, their sweet moments, then Derek's possesivness ( I like that the most) and then falling in love...I have read many romantic stories and I won't hesistate in saying that its one of the best story in fictionpress, the way of your writing, way of explaining things, WoW, its great, thanks for sharing this book with us, thankyou :) :)

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. I did not use to like the jerk-type guy falling in love with the heroine, but I have read so many stories with the couple starting off with hate and I like it. Plus, Derek is such a softy when Serena comes into play. I loved the whole story and the insults made me crack up every time. Wonderful!

I mentally slapped my head when Derek asked Serena if she loved him! Goodness, that guy always starts on the wrong foot. He has to say he loves her first! This unconventional couple...I love it. :)

Hi! It's Juliet from A Drop of Romeo. When your story was featured on ADoR, this review was written for it: This is one of my favourite stories in the whole of FP-dom and it is easy to see why Lenah C has earned herself over 1,000 reviews, for starters, it has excellent grammar and pacing throughout and a vibrant cast of characters that never feel flat, no matter the size of the role they play.
The two leads, Derek and Serena, have incredibly alchemy (chemistry so good, it’s golden!) as their relationship develops through their many, many spats. It is through this heady mix of wit and beguiling characters that Lenah C keeps you pressing that ‘Next Chapter’ button.
The general feel of the nineteenth century is well captured, especially the close scrutiny of upper class society and the pressures upon young ladies to behave ‘properly’. My main criticism of this story would be in this context, as it does not feel specific enough to the Victorian setting; Serena is allowed to exercise a slightly unbelievable amount of freedom when at home with her Grandpa.
This story seems long at first, but the chapters are of a reasonable length and despite having read it for the umpteenth time, I find it still grips me with the same ferocity as it did on my first read. In short, I love it!

Awhhhhwhwhwhwhw I love the ending! It's the cutest! Little duchess! I wish this could be turned into a movie or something! I love Serena! They're both so stubborn I can't help but laugh! They're 'hatred' towards each other is so adorable. Nice one!

This was a wonderful and adorable story. I enjoyed it very much though I recommend you edit the modern slanders. The word "jerk" and the contractions were not part of English vocabulary then. I also noticed the occurrence of "okay", though it didn't appear often. That wasn't part of English dialogue until the World Wars. I mean, editing is not mandatory. I just love reading things the the time periods vernacular language but the dialogue certainly didn't take anything away from the story besides the background. But nonetheless, it was a very heartwarming story with admirable characters. Keep writing, you have so much potential!
