Edmund Rushwood is a single English lord in possession of a great fortune who is in desperate need of a rich wife.
In accordance with his father’s will, Edmund has until he turns twenty-six to find a wealthy bride or lose his vast inheritance. To retain his selfish lifestyle, he agrees to join an American dating game show to find the woman who can save him. He doesn’t bargain on meeting Abby Forester, an impoverished, spirited American woman who is content to live out her father’s dreams in his vintage record shop.
With covert intervention from an unlikely source, Abby lands on the dating game show as one of Edmund’s potential brides. As their worlds entangle and love begins to bloom, Abby discovers Edmund cannot marry her and retain his wealth at the same time. Will love keep them together, or will greed triumph and tear them apart?
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
I’m a huge Jane Austen fan but not a fan of contestant shows like Bachelor and Bachelorette, so when I saw that this one was available to review, I jumped on it, curious to see how it played out. I was ready to see what the author had in store for her characters, as well as for a new reader, like me. Let me assure you, this author has a dedicated fan in me now! I loved every minute of this beautiful love story.
I loved the way the author chiseled her character. Abby and Edmund were perfectly flawed in their own ways, making them more likable that other characters I’ve seen in books. They felt real to me, as I watch their “dating show” story unfold. Edmund, bless him, I loved him! His character was definitely one I won’t soon forget.
The author’s writing style is superb and definitely captivating. She drew me into the story instantly and didn’t let me go until I reached the end. She had me smiling throughout the book, throwing in charming banter among the characters and by the end of the book, I was ready to give this a 4 star review with 2 thumbs up. I look forward to reading more stories by this talented lady!
