After nearly five years of torment at the hands of society's worst gossips, Lady Phoebe Anson is finally making her escape, following her dream to author botany texts—even if she must pretend to be a man to do it. When her one-time friend, Lord Malcolm Gray, happens upon her at the Frost Fair and uncovers her plot, Phoebe refuses to let him ruin her life—again.
But Malcolm isn't the young fool he once was, though he knows he has much to atone for where Phoebe is concerned. And he has no intention of letting his "whirling dervish" get away this time...
*This novella was previously released in A MIDWINTER’S SCANDAL, part of a limited-release historical romance duet with Erin Knightley*

I received a review copy of this book.
This story was charming. I found the hero and heroine to be adorable. I especially liked Malcolm and how once he figured out his feelings, he pursued Phoebe without being overbearing. I liked that Phoebe had her heart set to do something that was typically not done by women during the Regency era.
While being novella length, the romance didn't feel rushed and the characters were well developed.
