An Inescapable Match

By

This book had me laughing out loud, always a good sign. Penniless Deborah Staunton returns to her aunt’s house where she spent much of her childhood, accompanied by her nurse and unruly dog. There she reacquaints herself with Hugo Percival, son of the local landowner. Hugo is in need of a wife, and Deborah is in need of a protector, after a man from her father’s past begins to stalk her. Deborah’s accident-prone ways and Hugo’s stuffiness lead to sparks, as he half-heartedly woos her more ladylike cousins. As the danger to Deborah grows, Hugo finds himself more and more eager to apprehend the scoundrel threatening her and quite relieved when her cousins declare their interest in other men. Every aspect of this book sparkles, from the captivating characters to the beautifully rendered setting, well-paced, interesting plot and accomplished prose. Fans of the traditional Regency romance should put this stellar addition to the genre on their to-be-bought list.
