This is a newly edited author, and I very much liked her writing style and many detailed scenes.
And as this book is a first in a series, it introduced a bunch of characters I want to read about.
I can’t say I really liked Eliza, from her first encounter with Nat, she is rude. I do understand she went through an abusive marriage but why transferring on one man the sins of her late husband.
Worst, she acts awfully because she is attracted to him, and instead to be simple reserved, she is cool and unforgiving, quick to judge and quite bitter. So blind to design him as a villain, she even jumps head first in the trap sets by the true scoundrel.
And while I do hate abusers of any kind, it looked like she was part hand in her own fall, refusing to listen and going straight on the path of a dangerous man.
Nat, I loved him, he is a kind and caring man, his military carrier made him a strong and straightforward fellow. Still, he has too often been snubbed by those seeing themselves as his better, he does not see his worth. Sure he has a very tainted vision of society women, so he thinks Eliza rebuffs him because he is not enough. Yet his fair personality even agrees to find excuses to Eliza’s harsh words.
Why in fact, I very much thought Eliza did not deserve him, too judgmental and close-minded to have any right to be with him. She turns everyone of his words or actions the wrong way, always thinking the worst from him when he is only trying to help or protect her.
Hopefully the second part of the book turned out as action-packed, with Nat on a mission to protect her, she soon discovers the fortune hunter is not the one she thought, that her protector is a very wealthy but also sweet fellow. One she can count on at every turn.
For her, accepting his suit would be a huge leap of faith, and she did it one time prior and it had been her biggest mistake, so will she find the courage ...
In all this book could have been divided in two parts called Distrust and Trust. And even if I must disliked Eliza for the first half of the story, I can also accept her wariness about men, just I can’t understand why all report on Nat. Hopefully the actions and merry chase of the second part were very entertaining.
And Nat is definitely a hero like would love more.
After an abusive first marriage, Lady Eliza is determined to remain single and live a contented life alone. So when she meets her new neighbour she doesn't want to notice his handsome face or his pleasant personality when he isn't driving her crazy, that is. She makes it very clear that she wants nothing to do with him, even though deep down, Nathaniel Overton stirs something inside her that Eliza thought long dead.
Nat has worked hard to create the life he now has and while some will always look down on him, he will not let them bother him. But it hurts him when Eliza cuts him down especially when they were becoming friends. But when he discovers a dangerous plot involving Eliza, he will do whatever it takes to protect her and keep her safe. She may not want him but he wants her to be free and happy. As Eliza battles with herself and Nat battles to protect her, can they both find salve in each other's arms?
Romantic and dangerous, with excellent characters that feel like family, and a rich, historical setting, A GOOD MATCH FOR THE MAJOR by Josie Bonham is the perfect historical romance. There is never a dull moment in this story and I found myself really caring about Eliza and Nat, and wanting them to open up to each other and be honest about everything.
A GOOD MATCH FOR THE MAJOR is an excellent start to what is sure to be an exciting new series and I cannot wait for the next book from Josie Bonham.
Major Overton just discharged from the army isn't charmed by the easy living of the high society.
Their lives collide, or better their horses almost clash, leaving them without a good opinion of each other but their bodies think very differently, making them feel a strong attraction.
Will they give each other a chance to know better? Or will they leave it at a pretty bad first impression?
A Good Match For The Major was such a nice, intriguing tale that gripped me from the first chapter to the last one, and it kept me on my toes near the end.
I recommend it to all fans of regency stories, slow burn romance and witty bantering.
I'll look forward to Josie Bonham's next novel.
