Teresa saw him from across the ballroom. He was staring at her and she stared back. He abruptly left and she never saw him again. She thought and dreamed of him for eighteen months. She was ready to experience marriage and everything a woman could, but she dreamed of him.
Her parents had their eye on the local vicar for Teresa's husband. She had to find a way out of that situation. She couldn't stand the man she was supposed to marry. She wanted the man she only saw for a moment over a year ago. Of course it was impossible as he was hundreds of miles away in Scotland.
However, luck was with her. The rumor was the Earl was back in London trying to marry off his seven sisters. Teresa came up with an outrageous plan to fulfill her dreams. She made an excuse to get her to London and then came face to face the Earl with a proposal. He turned her marriage proposal down. Teresa was disappointed but not discouraged. She decides to wager with the Earl that she can find his sisters husbands in exchange for the experiences she craves. Duncan takes the wager knowing that she is determined enough not to accept a no. He is going to make her abandon her mad plans for him.
Teresa takes the girls under her wing and tries to help them find matches. With the help of her brother, she knows that she will make her dreams come true. She is determined to win the wager so the Earl will have to marry her. Duncan thinks she is mad in a lovely way. He is torn whether to stop her or let her succeed.

This novella was entertaining. I loved Teresa's character instantly. She was ruled by social decorum but she found a way to still go after what she wanted. She was a creative and funny young woman that was kind to outsiders. She was someone that the reader could befriend. Her determination was never ending and combined with her charm, Duncan didn't have a chance. It was great to watch him flounder a bit over her and her actions. I give it a 4 out of 5.

Well, I just finished How to Marry a Highlander by Katharine Ashe. This correlates to her Falcon Club books. Just to let you know you will be fine if you haven't gotten a chance to read the other stories yet, since the story focuses on Miss Teresa Finch-Freeworth and Duncan, the Earl of Eads.

Simple sum up of the story: Teresa has been nursing a crush on Duncan for 18 months. However, Mr. Waldon is breathing down her neck to get her accustom to being married to him. She has no desires on marrying Mr. Waldon cause he's a self-rightous vicar (I personally like prig). So, she comes with a hair-brain idea to get Eads to marry her, by proposing a wager that she could get all his sisters married in a month. By the way he has seven of them.

Sounds like I rush through that sum up, but simple. Anyways, I thought this novella was cute. It kind of reminded me of Emma in sum ways. Here's why: 1) We have Teresa trying to be a matchmaker, but she has better luck than Emma did. 2) We have a pompous vicar in Mr. Waldon who wanted to married Teresa like Mr. Elton wanted to married Emma. That's where the similarity end and it becomes it's own story. So, we have proud Duncan trying figure a way to make sure his sisters are taken care of. Then you have Teresa who would love to Duncan's wife. I love Teresa, because she's just so fun and imaginative. Duncan a big burly scotsman who loves his sisters to pieces. Then you have Teresa's crazy scheme to obtain her dreams.

Overall, a cute fun read. Who doesn't love a big burly scotsman, an imaginative young lady and hair-brain scheme? So, if you are looking for a cute quick read with an inappropriate wager, you might want to give How to Marry a Highlander a try.

The premise of How to Marry a Highlander might have made a great full-length book but we'll never get to know. I have my suspicions that the author chose novella length in what is becoming a popular ploy to get readers to pay for teasers for their next book. Because the story presented here is told, not shown, and told briskly, leaving out what might have been interesting facets. It was like sitting around a campfire with friends but instead of a ghost story I got this regency instead. Of course, there was a nice long excerpt for the authors next work and the writing there seemed a bit more up to par. Trouble is I feel cheated when authors choose this route and I felt especially cheated by this story. I'll be very careful about spending any of my hard earned money on this author's works in the future.

The third installment in Katharine Ashe's Falcon Club series is a delightfully clever romp through the marriage market in this historical romance novella. Set in the past, the situation and approach of Teresa is particularly contemporary and completely outrageous for the time.

Teresa is delightful and just moments from being considered too old for the marriage market. A chance encounter across a crowded ballroom nearly two years prior placed one face, one man, at the center of her fantasies and dreams. To avoid a life of boredom as the wife of the local vicar, she dashes to London and proposes an outrageous wager to the Earl of Eads.

Penniless and with a scandalous reputation, Duncan the Earl has seven half-sisters to care for, and hopes to marry off. His scandal is overplayed and full of half-truths, the appeal of this man and the obvious adoration for the hoydens he cares for is apparent. The girls are all rough cut diamonds, full of wildness and directness that shocks society and makes Teresa's wager even more outrageous.

From matching the girls with prospective suitors, to upended punch bowls at a ball and the subsequent near brawl, the story is delightful and full of hilarity and descriptive passages that bring the story alive in imagination. Teresa is bold and presents a confident air, even as she is racked with insecurities, and quick to blush in Duncan's presence.

Full of sexual tension between Teresa and Duncan, this story has a lovely arc that leads to their one sexual encounter, voiced with little asides from Teresa that contradict and illuminate some of the stories her maid has shared from her own escapades. Truly delightful in the telling, this has me wanting to grab up the rest of the series.
