Publisher’s Description:

He’s running out of time…

James Hargrave, Earl of Arden, urgently needs a wife. He’s resigned himself to a marriage of convenience and has even chosen a bride: Kate Honeycourt, his best friend’s sister.

Kate has been on the shelf for years. Why, then, should she so firmly turn him down? Surely she can’t be holding out for a love match?

But Kate has a proposal of her own: she’ll find James a bride he can fall in love with.

Armed with a list of requirements, Kate sets out to find him the perfect wife. But things don’t progress as either of them expect…

My Thoughts:

This is a very intriguing tale.

James must find a bride and fast. He has known Kate most of her life and he is her brother’s friend.

Kate has been in love with him for years but after overhearing his conversation with her brother she refuses his offer of marriage. She, instead decides to play matchmaker and find him a more suitable bride than herself.

Will James discover he actually feels more for Kate than he thought? Will the two get their happily ever after?

The premise of this book is very good, however it seemed to come to an abrupt end. I would have liked more personal interaction between the hero and heroine instead of her test of her matchmaking skills.

I gave this book 4 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames. The heat level is mild with only a couple of encounters.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the Author to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I have voluntarily reviewed.

The impetus for this tale came from the true story of the rescue of Scotland’s Crown Jewels from Oliver Cromwell’s clutches. After the execution of King Charles I, Cromwell destroyed the English regalia and wanted to do the same to Scotland’s Honors.

Morgan Pendray is a career soldier, a Welshman serving in the English Parliamentary army sent to invade Scotland. Hannah Kincaid is a Royalist spy who spirits away Scotland’s crown jewels from under Cromwell’s nose. Can history bridge the gap between them?

The crown, sword and scepter had been hidden away in Dunnottar Castle, which fell to English forces after a siege of 80 days. However, no trace of the jewels could be found in the fortress. It is reported that a woman was instrumental in their disappearance.
