The Match of the Century

The Match of the Century
Marrying the Duke Book 1
Cathy Maxwell
Every girl in London wants to marry a duke. Elin is considered lucky by all who know her. Not only is she engaged to a duke, but Gavin is rich and handsome as well. After numerous postponements due to deaths in the family, they are finally ready to set a date. But Elin can't get Gavin's brother Ben out of her mind. After a disastrous end to their friendship years ago, she should be over him. But she can't quite forget how he makes her feel. When trouble comes racing after Elin, it's Ben who rescues her and makes her fall in love all over again. Now the two must decide whether society and rules will guide their hearts.

This was a fun and entertaining regency romance. The story had suspense, drama, romance, and intrigue. The characters came to life on the pages and the scenes were described so they came alive. While quite a bit of the story was highly unlikely, I enjoyed the story for the plot and the romance and not the feasibility. The author did a great job of setting the scene for the next book in the series. I would recommend this book for pure enjoyment and a break from reality.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
