CHARLOTTE STEVENS HAS ONE SEASON TO FIND A HUSBAND

Her father’s fortune squandered, it’s up to Charlotte to secure a match and save her family from ruin. But nobody could be more surprised than her when Captain Viscount Delsey – whose reputation for breaking hearts is only exceeded by his wealth – proposes marriage.

Recognising Charlotte as the urchin he rescued late one night, Jack finds his interest piqued by this captivating adventuress. He makes an impulsive offer: he’ll clear her father’s debts if she’ll give him heirs!

Regency Brides of Convenience: Deals made at the altar!

A fantastic tale ....

Rating By Julia,05/12/2014

This story starts with a unique and unusual occurrence happening between the two main characters but the prologue and the first part of Chapter One introduces the circumstances of Captain Viscount Jack Delsey and his grandfather the Marquis of Ellington and Miss Charlotte Stevens and her family. The introduction was a perfect way to introduce the characters without dwelling too much on the circumstances within the story. The event was Charlotte saving the reputation of her family and her brother by doing something risky for a woman in her first season set on a rich husband to save her family. In the process of this event which is a wonderful read and I would not like to spoil it for you but safe to say she is observed by two gentlemen who give chase, she is then rescued by the other person to observe her and that is Jack. Jack was going to his mistress after a visit to his grandfather and his friends. He is then the saviour of Charlotte without knowing who she is or what she has done. When he finally gets to his mistress, he is in two minds and lingers outside until he observes another gentleman coming from her premises. The one thing he would prefer in his mistresses is that they do not entertain anyone else whilst with him so seeing another man was not a total surprise as he had doubts of her sticking to his rule. However, this man was a man Jack dislikes, Lord Harding. When Jack makes up is mind to finish with his mistress he returns home in time to see the same youth going into the basement of the house across the road. The next day he introduces himself to the family and figures out what had happened the night before, but not why. Jack befriends Matt, Charlotte’s brother. He is certainly not backwards in the amount of information he lets slip. Jack finds himself interested in Charlotte. Jack has to look after his cousin, Julia, as his Uncle is unwell. Julia is a handful and so Jack introduces her to the Stevens family and allows Lady Stevens to take Julia under her wing. Julia forms a liking for Matt. Jack starts liking Charlotte more and more during the events that Julia and others orchestrate. They became engaged, but Lord Harding threatens Charlotte whilst Jack is away for a few days. Jack calls Lord Harding a cheat at one of the gaming dens but the man falls ill before Jack could call him out. His friend Mr Patterson was also a threat to Charlotte but he seemed to disappear after this event. Jack sends Charlotte and her family to visit with his mother and his grandfather whilst he dealt with some business. During his visit, Jack finds out some interesting facts about the events that happened in his past concerning his father. During this trip, Jack is hurt. Jack returns to his mother and grandfather with the aid of a friend but his is not the same Jack, which makes Charlotte have doubts. Events come to a head quite dramatically. Charlotte is in the middle of it all. Jack is injured again and Charlotte is taken for ransom. Charlotte escapes and makes her way back to Jack. Unfortunately when Jack sets off to get the men who would hurt Charlotte with Phipps a friend from his army days and Phipps cousin who is also in the army, the man who is instigating these problems makes his way to where Charlotte is. He leaves a note at his old residence and went after his payday. A very startling event happens which sees Charlotte safe but you have to read it to believe it. I had a grin a mile wide, when I read it and it is something you really need to experience for yourself. Just to say the bad guy gets more than he deserves. Jack arrives in time to console Charlotte and is relieved and impressed with her rescuer. The ending is wonderful and I hope that Jack’s friends and Cousin along with Charlotte’s brother Matt all get their own stories. It would be wonderful to catch up with Jack and Charlotte during the future stories.

Superior Historical

Rating By R,04/11/2014

A good old-fashioned Regency with all the expected trademarks but so refreshingly written it didn't seem "same old". Great and sympathetic characters representative of their age and a nice touch of adventure and mystery which kept me intrigue as the plot never went wher I was expecting it to. Superior M&B historical. Ten out of ten
