*Starred Review* Dreiling’s Regency romance debut is, in a word, enchanting. Tristan, duke of Shelbourne, has come to the conclusion that it’s time for him to beget an heir. Since he is a notorious rake, his access to misses suitable for marriage is limited. His friend Lord Broughton found his wife through a matchmaker, however, and Tristan decides to ask young spinster Miss Tessa Mansfield to find him the perfect match. Tessa agrees, culling the top 24 debutantes of the season for his perusal. As Tessa and Tristan meet to decide how the courtship should proceed and who should be eliminated from the pack after each gathering, they gradually fall in love. When only two candidates remain, Tessa and Tristan are caught in a tangle of their own making. How can Tristan honorably back away from his public courtship? And how can Tessa’s reputation in high society survive? Dreiling not only solves the dilemma; she also makes readers care about the delightful couple through their witty repartee and her expert storytelling. --Pat Henshaw
