The perfect match may be closer than they imagine . . .
Despite her disastrous London debut, Millicent Edgebrook has proven skilled at securing matches—for every young lady but herself. Resigned to spinsterhood, and eager to gain independence from her lovable but eccentric uncle, Millie joins the Everton Domestic Society. Her first assignment: find a bride for Preston Knowles, Duke of Middleton. How difficult can it be to secure a match for a handsome, eligible aristocrat? As difficult, it seems, as resisting her own attraction to the duke…
Preston has promised himself not to be ruined by love. After being rebuffed by two perfectly respectable candidates, he’d rather remain happily single for the rest of his life...if only his mother would let him. Yet suddenly, he’s fantasizing about the lovely matchmaker she’s hired—the least suitable bride imaginable. Millie’s past is shrouded in scandal, and the Everton Society forbids relations between employees and clients. But even with so many obstacles against them, Preston longs to convince the woman he adores that love trumps rules every time…
A Delightful Story!
Just let me say upfront, I loved this story and also the first book in the series "A Lady's Honor" but each can be read as a standalone. Millicent Edgebrook is done with the marriage mart. Every time she gets to know a gentleman she finds he is perfect for one of her friends! Yes she seems to be a matchmaker but cannot find her own match! She decides to step out and be independent so she applies for a job at the Everton Domestic Society and is hired on the spot. Her first case is to find a bride for Preston Knowles, Duke of Middleton who has already had some problems himself.
Millie and Preston were both such lovable characters. As she worked with him an attraction arose which each of them tried to resist. There are such wonderful secondary characters that also add so much to this tale.
Will these two find love together or are they fated for others? I look forward to every book by this author and I am never disappointed. This held all the elements of humor, intrigue and of course love. Trust me, you will love it! I read this through NetGallery.
