An expert at winning a woman's hand. A woman who cannot be won.
Lord Featherstone has the world on his shoulders. Or at least his world. With two brothers and a failing estate he must make funds somehow. But what happens when he falls for a woman? Will his tactics work when the situation is so close and personal?
Everyone thinks Lady Loveluck is a wealthy widow. What they don't know is that she is on the brink of hiring herself out as a Governess in order to pay for her next meal. The only thing keeping her from employment is a growing reputation as a matchmaker. As long as she never falls for another man, as long as she doesn't allow herself to be fooled into marrying, she will be just fine.
But she never counted on being caught up in the beguiling tactics of London's renowned and not so secret matchmaker for men.
🎜Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match . . . Find me a find, catch me a catch.🎜 Does anyone know this song from Fiddler On the Roof? This is the song that kept running through my head throughout this book. It's now my theme song for this book.
Lord Featherstone and Lady Loveluck are matchmakers of a sort. They help people fine tune themselves so that they can make a love match. They help them navigate society and give them confidence. But then Lord Featherstone finds himself enamored with Lady Loveluck and has to become the matchmaker for himself! (This makes me laugh because then he is singing my theme song to himself! 😂 ) Lady Loveluck is harder to convince than most women. And Lord Featherstone isn't the only one vying for her attention. Competition!!
There is a lot of back and forth in this book. Both characters trying to sacrifice for the greater good- their clients, mostly. There is a slow growing awareness and attachment. It was all very sweet and gentle in nature. Pure regency. A fun start to a new series by this author.
This book is also on KU if you have that!

more stories circulating in her brain than can possibly be told. She discovered
her passion for England while kayaking on the Thames near London as a young
teenager. History is her main jam. Her literary heroes include the greats: Jane
Austen and Charles Dickens. But she has modern sensibilities as well.
children and an inspiring husband keep her going and make certain she doesn't
stay glued to a keyboard or lost in obscure fascinating details of old castles.
loves to share bits of history that might otherwise be forgotten. Whether in
Regency England, the French Revolution, or Colonial America, her romance novels
are much like life is supposed to be: full of adventure.
