A Dangerous Expectation by Cecilia Gray

A Dangerous Expectation (The Gentlemen Next Door, #3)
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: The Gentlemen Next Door #3

In the cloistered English countryside, an improbable couple will defy expectation.

Miss Cassandra Drummond, shipping heiress and consummate shut-in, flees London and the hectic to-do of her sister's upcoming nuptials. She wants a quiet summer away from everyone, especially marriage-seeking fortune hunters.

She doesn't expect Mr. Gray Abernathy to prove dangerous to her impregnable walls.

Mr. Gray Abernathy, poor ducal relation and consummate harmless flirt, eeks by on his charming manner and his pretty face. He wants an independence where he isn’t beholden to anyone, certainly not a shipping heiress.

He doesn't expect Miss Cassandra Drummond to prove dangerous to his impregnable heart.

Fortunately for all, love and life can often exceed expectations...

My Rating: 4 Roses

Another lovely novella in the Gentlemen Next Door series, A Dangerous Expectation was a sweet read. I really liked this light, quick novella, and I really enjoyed it.

Cassandra was a great heroine. She was extremely smart and didn't always say the most appropriate thing, which made her self-conscious in society. But, as the book went on, she became more confident and proved herself as a capable character. Gray was very sweet, but I didn't get a lot from his character, But, I still liked him as well.

The romance was lovely. I liked how Cassandra and Gray helped each other break free of the restrictions they put on themselves. They might have to act in front of society, but they didn't have to act in front of each other.

The plot moved quickly and I was kept interested the entire way through. I enjoyed the story and the ending was great.

A Dangerous Expectation was a sweet, light novella and I enjoyed reading it. Romance lovers, this is a book you'll want to check out if you're in the mood for a quick, enjoyable read.
