The pace felt natural, the outcome not at all far fetched, and the characters were haha funny to me. I have no clue if Lady Danbury is featured in any of the other stories, but I hope so. I have a fondness for any character who can accidentally on purpose mangle something so beyond the possibility of repair while brandishing a cane!
And as I am wont to do, I found delight in imagining the stories of a few secondary characters. I'm pretty sure I'm dying to hear Colin Bridgerton's story, as well as Daniel's. And then there's the governess turned impromptu pianist...I think she'll end up in the family.
