    1. This was a perfect example of an author "telling" an entire story rather than "showing" how her characters develop and fall in love (I'll use that term very loosely since I sure couldn't find the feels between these two people). The story was mostly told from the heroines point of view, but she never read like a developed woman. She was bland, and I longed for her to actually get ANGRY at her husband for his abysmal treatment. Instead, she allow him to steamroll over her feelings and needs and s [...]

    2. This was a very cute novella. The heroine, Selina, is not an aristocrat. She is however, an heiress in love with an Earl who needs money and has secrets. He does not hide his financial worries from her. She marries him only to find he has disappeared before the wedding night. Selina is a strong woman and instead of running back to her sister, she goes to his estate. I do not write plot spoilers. I really enjoyed this well written story and recommend it highly.

    3. Loved this What a story! Selena has no idea what she is in store for when she agrees to marry Giles as convenience. On their wedding night he disappears and comes back some weeks later I'll and bruised. Where he had gone she has no clue.When she returns from a visit with her sister, he is gone again and she decides to search for him. What she comes up with does not sit well with her, all avenues point to him being a spy, but she cannot believe it. Is it possible that the man she has fallen hopel [...]

    4. As a fellow writer of historical romance novellas, I always have a mixed reaction when people say they wish one of my stories had been longer, but that's precisely how I felt with this one.Selena is secretly in love with a man whose offer of marriage she has refused several times because her feelings are unrequited. Lord Devereaux has left Wellington's army for fear his line will die out if he falls in battle but now is in dire need of money to repair his ruined estates. Unromantically, he confe [...]

    5. Marriage of Convenience Into a True MatchReview copy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.At 23, Selina Wakefield yearned for a full and passionate life with a husband. Already she had refused Giles Devereaux, Earl of Halcrow’s first proposal to her. She couldn’t fault him his honesty when he revealed that he needed to marry Selina for her inheritance and an heir to continue the Halcrow lineage. Giles found Selina outspoken and a delightful puzzle and he thought her we [...]

    6. Very enjoyableI really liked Devereux, though he was secretive to the nth degree, and Selina had unbelievable patience when it came to him not telling her anything and being gone for really long periods of time. I don’t think I would have been that patient, that’s for sure. A big part of the book the two spent apart but it was such a good story you really didn’t notice.There was a little sexual tension but one reviewer, Granny Goose, was so wrong about her review of this book, it was simpl [...]

    7. Love and War was a simply charming read. It did not feel like it was forty odd pages long at all. This was definitely a character driven story, and at that mostly around Selena and her reactions towards her husband, Gyles (Lord Deveraux) and the mystery of her marriage. Its very clear early on how she feels about Gyles, but its made equally clear that she wasn't going to let her feelings make her into a complete sap. She has gumption and a strong will to either work things out or at least live c [...]

    8. LOVE AND WARMAGGI ANDERSENISBN#: 978-1-60394-302-4Regency HistoricalRating: 4 CupsSelena Wakefield was tired of her sister's attempts at matchmaking. All Selena wanted was to find love.

He now wants to marry Selena and use her inheritance to help restore his family estate.But not all is as it seems. Poor Selena is not married a day and is abandoned at an [...]

    9. An OK read. Too little plot, as short as it is, and what there is, is erratic: we're here we're there then someplace else. When the heroine breezes in and solves [the only one who can she's told!!] a problem the intricate and successful spy system couldn't, it just jars, and frankly a bit of research, or reading other regencies, would have prevented this nonsense: when the hero - the last of his line, the title in danger of reverting to the crown if he dies heir-less!!!! - is reviled and 'scorne [...]

    10. Charming twosome.Review copy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.It was a very charming tale. You like Selina Wakefield and the quips. You like Giles Devereux, Earl of Halcow, was an interesting character and they matched up quite well. She helped him with his demons and he cherished her. It was an enjoyable read right from start to finish and one or two other characters deserve a story of their own. So, if you ever get the chance, to check it out do so and you’ll enjoy [...]

    11. Good read! At The Earl's Convenience was my first read by Maggi Andersen. This is a well written book. I enjoyed Devereux and Selina's story. Ms Andersen has delivered an entertaining book with lovable characters, suspense, drama and just a little heat. I look forward to reading more from Maggi Andersen in the future. At the Earl's Convenience is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.Review copy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.

    12. Missing in ActionHonestly the book was pretty boring.The Earl was hardly a character in the story,basically disappearing when it suited bin which was often,leaving a newly wedded wife to deal with all the work of rebuilding his estate and trying to understand why h Dr husband couldn't even t make the time to consummate their wedding night h t.Just took off and left her hanging.I would've told him to go to the gallows.

    13. At the Earls Convenience by Maggie AndersonThis was a cute little story ! I liked Selina and Giles they were a perfect for each other couple . Even though she doesn't know exactly what he's up to ,disappearing all the time she believes in him even when his friends don't know what to think! Very good book ! Very well written.

    14. Lucky me, this novella was an unexpected gift. A little bit different from the usual Regency 'marriage of convenience' fare, it features a wonderful heroine, Selina Wakefield, and a very elusive hero, Giles Devereux, Earl of Halcrow. Selina is strong and resourceful, which is just as well, as there is quite a mystery to unfold about her new - and mostly absent - husband. Enjoyable read.

    15. This is a lovely story that can be read in an afternoon. Read full review in the 2015 November issue of InD'tale Magazine.

    16. I liked this novella but had a feeling of deja-vu. Then I found out I had read one of Maggi's older novellas "Love and War" only a couple of months ago. This is basically the same story but refreshed with a new title. Well written and a good story however.

    17. Mystery and beyond.This was an intriguing book. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Hope to read more of Maggie AndersonIf this is just a sample of her work, then I know I'll like more. The force of the age and the history of this book made it impressive.

    18. First time I give 5 stars in a long timeCouldn't put the book down. The life changes, that Selina goes through alongside the emotional rides and the mysteries regarding her new husband had me on my toes. Loved the book

    19. I liked this one as far as story and characters. The writing wasn't my favorite, however, the pacing was good for how short a book it was.

    20. I enjoy reading this bookIt is an easy read a lot of everything l love intrigue and friendship .I love the heroes with an happy ending

    21. RomanticThe book still left you wondering about the future and his connections. Who's good and bad who knows to tell

    22. Good romanceThe characters were lovely, easy reading. Not affectionate so I found it hard to fall into the love response from his loyal wife.

    23. LOVE!A great captivating story! I couldn't put it down! The characters were great and it was not so much predictable but fun to see the story develops!

    24. An adorable little love story! There are a few descriptive adult scenes, but only adds to the story. I did not want to put it down, and hope there is a follow up.

    25. It was well written and entertaining, but there seemed to be a few gaps between events that disrupted the flow of reading occasionally for me.

    26. This is well written, and I am glad I chose it. I will read more from Ms. Andersen in the future.
