I barely started reading your story , and I think it's great.(: though I thought it was pretty harsh for Kate to say that to Andrew about the whole no family thing.

Last paragraph: "marry Hazel"? You meant "marry Kate". You confused yourself, lol.

This was a fabulous read. I'm not much of a Historical fan but I think you may have converted me!

Hey! I am here to share some exciting news with you. This story has been added to the Historical category over on A Drop of Romeo! :)

"For as long as she can remember, Kate has known that she's never the girl boys want to date. They only dance with her so that they can get her approval to date her best friend, Hazel. This, however, is going to change this season. Kate's main goal this season was to help her brother win the approval of his true love's parents but what she didn't encounter on meeting Andrew, the girlfriend's brother. Or for her childhood best friend, David, to return. Or for James Caldwell, Viscount of Hallden, to take an interest in her money...

With an endless pool of characters, you would think that a reader would get lost trying to remember which character is who or what their relationship with Kate was but this is never the case. Each individual character has their own quirks as well as how their relationships are with Kate. This could only happen with amazing writing and that's exactly what Astarael-11 delivers. Not only does the writing stay fluent so the reader can keep on track but the characters also develop throughout the story.

However, I have one slight issue with this story. Despite the summary stating that Kate's brother has fallen in love and he needs Kate's help to win over his true love's parents approval, this point is rarely visited throughout the story so it is slightly misleading but I wouldn't let that stop you from reading. The tale of Kate and her three suitors make a highly entertaining read.

Historical knowledge, believable characters and fast paced chapters makes “Season for Love” a story that you'll want to read in one sitting."

Keep writing,

Helen xo

Wow, now that was a good story! Thank you so much, I enjoyed myself immensely! The characters were well thought out, and even though I at times feared there were too many of them you proved me wrong. Good job!

However, there were some period-related things that I found amiss. Overall I would have liked to see very little of contracted forms, particularly in speech and even more particularly when speaking to not-close people. Also, some very modern little things bothered me - Hazel's "cute as hell", Kate giving her brother a thumbs up, and then saying "OK", and also the expression "sort of".

Introductions during the regency period had strict rules. You needed to be introduced by a mutual acquaintance or a host/master of ceremonies. Especially introducing yourself to a superior was not acceptable. (Think of Mr Collins introducing himself to Mr Darcy!)

There's also the matter of addressing people. I agree that Andrew would call Kate "Kate", but I feel that Kate probably would call Andrew "Lord Green". Also, in chapter 34, I think Derek would address Andrew simply as "Green" and not by his first name.

Then there is the matter of balls. First of all, unmarried ladies need to be escorted all the time, either by their mother, another married woman, or a trusted gentleman. It's simply outrageous if they wander off on their own. It also seems to me that the waltz is being danced in chapter 13. I don't think this should be possible, as waltz was yet to be introduced in court in 1810, and even after its introduction it remained rare and scandalous for a long time. Andrew interrupts Kate and James's dance i chapter 16. This is particularly rude, no matter the reason. I did, however, enjoy the little bit about Andrew not dancing twice with anyone in chapter 23 - props for that!

And then there were a number of little things, like Kate readying her horse instead of letting a groom do that for her in chapter 21, and her going out without a maid in chapter 25, even though her parents were so worried. It would not be proper even under normal circumstances.

I hope I don't come off as a whiner, it's just that I've been spending the whole spring reading Austen and studying the Regency era, and I find it important to get these little things right. I'm definitely going to read David's story next!

Thank you again for this delightful story, it's definitely up my street and I hope you write a lot more regency stuff in the future!

Aw, such a sweet epilogue. :) I'm glad Kate and Andrew are together (finally!) and are more than happy with their lives together. :) Your writing in this story was superb, and it felt really complete. (Some stories may say they're completed, even though they really don't seem like it) This was a great story and is going straight to my faves. :D

Oh, and David's story seems like a good one, too. I would definitely read that one. :)
