Book Description

In this captivating romance about the inimitable Duncan sisters and their clandestine matchmaking service, a handsome new client throws youngest sister Chastity into an unexpected quandary.
 
Chastity listens to Dr. Douglas Farrell’s distressingly unromantic requirements for a wife: wealth and social status. Her instinct is to refuse service to the tall, muscular, dark-eyed physician, but she can’t turn away a paying client. Yet the doctor conceals a secret. He’s prepared to sacrifice his bachelorhood for his true passion: caring for the poorest of London’s poor. Of course, his dream requires capital. For that, he is convinced he needs a well-to-do, well-connected wife. Little does Chastity know that if she ever learned the selfless truth, the handsome doctor just might steal her heart. And if Douglas ever lifted the veil that covers this mysterious woman, he might discover his perfect match.


From the Paperback edition.


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Set in London during a time when traditionalism started giving way to modernization and suffragists challenged the status quo, this final installment in Feather's Matchmaker trilogy (The Bride Hunt, etc.) follows the nosy, righteous and sometimes self-righteous Duncan sisters as they tackle their toughest challenge yet—finding a wealthy, well-connected wife for a doctor who wants nothing to do with love. Douglas Farrell's businesslike approach to marriage immediately sets Chastity Duncan's teeth on edge, but as one of the secret owners of the suffragist scandal sheet The Mayfair Lady, to which Douglas has applied for matrimonial aid, she can't let her emotions cloud her business dealings. So Chastity finds the good doctor exactly what he has asked for. He soon realizes that he'd rather have Chastity, though. Douglas has a noble reason for seeking a marriage of convenience—he intends to use his spouse's money to set up a clinic in a city slum—but his haughty attitude toward aristocrats (who, he automatically assumes, care nothing for the poor) is off-putting. The book's conflict stems from a minor misunderstanding, and many of the goings-on are merely padding. But the primary romance, while lacking in passion and drama, holds enough charm to keep readers engaged.

From Booklist

The Duncan sisters may have curbed their morose father's spending, but only Chastity has to live with him in their London home at the beginning of the twentieth-century because her sisters, Prudence and Constance, from The Bride Hunt [BKL F 15 04] and The Bachelor List [BKL D 15 03] are each happily married. To generate income, the sisters produce a newspaper and act as matchmakers. Chastity meets a prospective client, Dr. Douglas Farrell, who is only interested in a marriage of convenience so that his new wife can produce clients for his medical practice. She is put off by his mercenary goal, but can't turn down a paying client. Douglas actually needs a wealthy wife to fund his true passion: helping the poor. Chastity soon realizes that there is more than meets the eye with the handsome doctor, but she has already found a rich, if annoying, woman who meets his qualifications. This is a perfect ending to a delightful trilogy, although readers will miss Feather's fascinating and entertaining characters. Patty Engelmann

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice triology May 19, 2010
By Gemms
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The last book in the Tri was a little dissapointing. I am with a few others that felt Chasity would prove to be the spunky, funny, loveable charcter that she is intended to be. But in her story she comes across very snobbish (if that is a word). The story is nice and flows well, but a little more Fun and loving could have happened. This was more like a conclusion of the first two books with Chasity thrown in with bit of her story. Overall, I love this set and I reread it often.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Happy Story April 24, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I got this book from a friend and did not know it was series - but found it entertaining. This novel takes place in the early 1900's - cars, trains and electricity. Chasity and her sister run a newspaper and one element is men seeking wives. Dr. Douglas Ferrell is looking for a rich wife to help with his medical practice. Chasity and Douglas meet and sparks fly - but not in the good way - for awhile! Enjoy...

If you like this genre I would also suggest; Never Trust a Scoundrel , Pickpocket Countess (Harlequin Historical Series) , At the Bride Hunt Ball and A Rogue's Game (Mistress Trilogy).

A wonderful trilogy. I loved how all the characters remained in each book but the main characters were drawn forward in a beautiful dance. Thoroughly enjoyable.
