When her best friend, Brianna Cho, challenges her to aim high and go for men who are out of her league, Molly can't imagine a worse way to spend Valentine's Day. When she stumbles across a very handsome British professor, Albert George, seeking refuge in her office during the Museum of Literature's Valentine's Day gala for the opening of their Austen exhibit, Molly can't help but be drawn to the fellow introverted academic. Together they ghost out of the event and embark upon a month long love affair. Molly is rethinking her stance on happily ever afters and plans to tell Al how she feels, but he disappears. Afraid something bad has happened, Molly searches for him only to discover there is no Albert George affiliated with the university. She's been played for a fool!

James Albert George Insley Whitmore, called Jamie by his friends and family, arranged for Molly to bring the materials back. He had to leave her unexpectedly, but he hasn't been able to forget her and he wants to win her back. Molly isn't having it. She refuses to be taken in twice.

Molly Graham, a registrar at the Museum of Literature in New York City, is not a fairy-tale person. But, along with her best friend [and co-worker] Briana Cho, she’s decked out as a regency-period costume for the Museum’s Valentine’s Day Gala to open their Jane Austen exhibit.
When she stumbles over Albert George . . . hiding out in her tiny office . . . she finds herself charmed by the introverted academic. Soon Molly finds herself in a relationship that causes her to reconsider her staunch refusal to believe in happily-ever-after.
And then Albert vanishes.
Concerned, Molly tries tracking him down and learns that there was no Albert George affiliated with the university. Devastated, Molly tries to put the whole affair behind her.
But what will happen when she returns the borrowed Austen collection to England and discovers the truth about Albert George?
With a strong sense of place and well-developed, nuanced characters, this novella hits all the right notes. The plot, tying itself to books and bibliophiles, puts a new spin on a tried-and-true premise and, with appealing characters, pulls the reader into the telling of the tale.
The characters are believable and both “sides” are skillfully presented . . . Molly feels betrayed, Al just wants to explain, and the unfolding story offers readers a few surprises along its way to that much-anticipated happily ever after.
The sweet story speaks to the heart, celebrating the joy of finding that one special person, that elusive meant-to-be relationship. It’s guaranteed to leave readers with a smile in their hearts.
