Description from

Railway financier Simon Davenant has waited seven years for a second chance with his childhood sweetheart and best friend. He’s not about to let his impending financial ruin destroy the opportunity.

This time, he’ll do anything he can to secure her hand in marriage—even if it means losing her heart for good.


If I had a top ten author list Courtney Milan would be on it every time she published.  This is a short story about 60-70 pages long.  Now you might think that is not enough length to fully develop a love story.  You would be wrong.  At first we don’t know why Simon feels an urgency to marry in three days and we wonder why this particular woman.  As the story unfolds we are privy to their long standing love and regard, and the problems that hindered them in the past and that have come to hinder them again.  There are heartbreaking memories that make the reader long for the couple’s happiness.   The romance in this story is exquisite.  If you ever thought roses were the flower of love your mind will be changed, for the flower of this love is the tulip.

  1. Lovely review, Dot! Courtney Milan is amongst my top favourite authors but I hadn’t realised I didn’t have this short story until I read your review. Quickly downloaded from Amazon! Is this story connected to any series or is it a standalone?
