you do know that 5 miles by horse or carriage would take less then an hour right? it takes 50 min to JOG that far. if you where to run and a good pace it would take you around 40 min. and a horse can move a hell of a lot faster then a human. to top it off, unless the lady was against exercise, it was considered haute ton to go riding every day. ladys would most often go riding to other estates, which were often miles away, in order to have a morning visit. when in one of the larger citys, such as bath or london, ladys would ride in parks, or take quick trips out of the city. of course the ladys would have grooms to attend them and to provide safety, and maybe a maid for respectability's sake.

Hi! I know this story is older, and you're probably not responding to reviews anymore, but who do you mean by face shop model, because the only girl who came up was Seohyun from SNSD, and I highly doubt Serena is asian :P
BTW loving this story. The characters are so interesting and full, and it's actually nice reading a story without a complicated love triangle for once :)

I LOVE, LOVE LOVE this story. I've been looking for a story like this for a very long time. Like really long. I love historical romance, I feel like romance was just so much better back then. The passion is all the same, just with a lot more class. And you captured it really well. The beautiful, extravagant homes and gowns and parties with royalty and everything. It was amazing. I love the relationship between Serena and Derek. It was entertaining and it was really good to see how it progressed. Very, very nice. Thanks for writing it! :D

Wow, out of all Regency novels I have read and re-read, this one is up there with them. Why haven't you gotten it published yet?
On another note, I don't think you had any spelling errors, but I only read this within two days as well.
Anyway, I liked this one really well.

I love it! I've read 'Pirate of my Dreams' as well, but this is definitely my favourite :)

A beautiful story, I absolutely loved it!
The constant switch up from past to present tense -and vice versa- rattled me in the beginning chapters, but mental corrections helped me look over all that until the end. I truly enjoyed the entire read from beginning to end.
Thank you for it.

You need a fact checker. Your story is so good and very well written, that it's immensely frustrating when I read things that are so blatantly wrong. It makes me pause in the story when I cringe at some of the stuff you've written.
1)There can only be one duchess and one duke for a title. That means that The sister would be referred to as a lady and a relative/sister of the duke not a duchess. Moreover, the grandmother would be the dowager duchess or referred to as 'your grace'
2)A woman can't inherit a title. In some cases, assuming this is one of them, where the title is passed onto the daughter (due to the lack of a direct male heir or any male cousins) the daughter would then be the "heir presumptive" to the earldom and would not be addressed by the title until she was married and actually inherited the title (ie the grandfather would have to die).
3) Planes? REALLY? PAPER PLANES?! What is wrong with you?! This is set in 1876, not 1903 and beyond! (only thing that really bothers me so far)
And not a complaint or comment but a short history lesson and then a question:
4)In the fifteen years following 1874, aristocracy lost fortunes in coal mining when it took a sudden downturn. This was one of the factors that led (I'm infering) to the massive loss of fortunes in the English aristocracy. When the royalty finally realized their insurmountable debts weren't going away they decided to 'sully the bloodlines for money' and turned to the Americas, where many immigrants were making fortunes for themselves (new money) and were willing to sell (ahem.. I mean marry off) their daughters for titles.
I understand that this is a really silly question to ask(as this is a fiction), but It's been killing me... if Dillan was monopolizing the coal industry, then where were the other aristocrats getting their income from, and 2) how was he not losing immense amounts of money already if he owned the majority of the coal mines?
My fictionpress name is "EternalCrimson" Sorry I'm not logged in, feel free to PM me and sorry if it sounds like I'm ranting or bashing, I'm really not. You have amazing writing skills and love the romance and the story. You've mostly got the personality of the tonn and the hierarchy down pat, and the fashions and well close to everything else (ps, your use of occasional slang and 'modern speak' is entertaining) :) I love your story and hope you keep up the good work and get a Beta or something that understands the historical part a little better than you.

So if Alexandra is related to both Derek and Serena, wouldn't Derek and Serena therefore also be related? And if they are indeed related, then how would Serena be a peasant?

[Half convinced, the brunette sighed. She couldn't walk away like a coward: her pride won't let her. Besides, it's been fifteen years since the tea party incident. She's not a child anymore to be hindered from her lifelong dream by an]... You wrote "she's not a child" when it should probably be "she wasn't a child." I also noted that you said it had been "fifteen years," but she was sixteen then, and six at the tea party incident. So technically, it'd be impossible for anything such.
You also wrote Serena to be a brunette, but you also said that she had black hair. Brunette means that the said person would have brown hair.
Constructive criticism :)

Oh wow. I was just looking for a bit of entertainment before going to bed when I came across this story.
I read straight through the night.
I think it was great, incrediby well-written and I loved the characters. Props for Jeremy, what an amazing friend he is. I think my heart did swell and fall along with both Derek and Serena.
I am so tired right now, but it was worth the time.
So as I get ready to crawl into bed, I want to thank you for this amazing story!

Wow! I loved this story so much! I've been reading non stop since I started three days ago (I think)
I really liked how the characters changed their attitudes toasted each other slowly, and not abruptly, because it made it seem so much real instead of other stories where the characters change their personalities completely.
Thanks a lot for this story and I hope you'll start a new one soon! How ever, I'll see you in your next story! Bye!

Loved reading your story! Very entertaining,and pretty well thought out. You could have used some more research as I'm sure they weren't throwing paper airplanes in the 1800's, lol. But I didn't mind a bit, kind of made me laugh to think of a duke throwing around a paper airplane. LOL. Very well written and I truly loved all of it. I do wish you had put in there what happened to the horrid man that tried to assualt her, but I will survive. Keep up the good work, can't wait to read more of your writing!
