With seven troublesome half sisters to marry off, Duncan, the Earl of Eads, has one problem: he's broke.
With the prospect of marriage to the pompous local curate, Miss Teresa Finch-Freeworth has one dream: to wed instead the handsome Highlander she saw at a ball.
How does a desperate lady convince a reluctant laird that she's the perfect bride for him? She strikes a wager! If she can find seven husbands for seven sisters, the earl must marry her.
Duncan has no intention of wedding the meddlesome maiden, and he gives her a deadline even the most audacious matchmaker can't meet—one month. But Teresa sets terms, too: with each bridegroom she finds, the earl must pay her increasingly intimate rewards . . .
Teresa Finch-Freeworth is a woman who loves to dream. The man of her dreams? – the Earl of Eads. Teresa lives in an age where men have to do the pursuing. I like to see that Teresa has a mind of her own. She may be apprehensive but she’s still willing to take a chance.
Duncan is the seventh Earl of Eads and he’s in London with his seven noisy sisters. Because this is a book that doesn’t have audio, we can’t hear Duncan’s accent. But Katharine helps the reader “hear” it by the words that she uses – got to love a man with a Scottish accent. You will find the first meeting, or should I second, comical and very interesting.
This is a great read to have while you’re working out on the treadmill or stationary. You won’t realize how much time has gone by. You just have to keep reading so that you can keep abreast of the wager that is going on. It’s also a book that can be read all in one day.
Our author has written a sensual not a sexy story. There’s just the right amount of sex but this is more about the interaction between Teresa and Duncan and his sisters. Makes me wish I was a fly on the wall to see all the clothing and goings on at the balls.
Once you get to the end of the story, please make sure to read the Author’s Note – this is for her readers. Included is also a sneak peek at her new book in a new series. If you haven’t read any of her other books, make sure to stop over to her web site http://www.katharineashe.com and go ahead and catch up on this series.
