A WINTER WEDDING is a terrifically fun historical romance.
In 1810 London, James Lockton, the Duke of Marchford, is desperate to get away from the matchmaking mamas and their dull, spotted and simpering daughters. His duty to the Foreign Office to catch traitorous French spies in their midst leaves him with little time to consider a wife. One woman he trusts with both his duty and his future bride is his grandmother's companion, Miss Penelope Rose, otherwise known as the exclusive matchmaker Madame X. As a woman with access to the far reaching branches of society, Penelope helps James get the access and information he needs to go after any threat to the throne. She can also help him avoid another London season and find him a practical bride.
But one look at Penelope with her hair down and relaxed has James looking at her in a whole new way, and once he does, neither can seem to close those floodgates. Even though James has proposed (inelegantly) to Penelope as nothing more than a "suitable" match that is both logical and perfect for letting him continue his spy catching duties with her help, Penelope refuses to marry for anything other than true love, even if it means never marrying at all. The most difficult match to make may be her own if Madame X can't figure out a way to save her heart once she realized it belongs to James.
A WINTER WEDDING is the third book in the decidedly fun Marriage Mart series. This book started off dangerous and fun, and the duke's playful yet serious attitudes had me falling for him myself almost immediately. The relationship with his grandmother was ornery yet loving, even though he had every reason to hate her for past sins.Read more ›
James is a spy for the Foreign Office and, throughout this series, Penelope has helped him often in his work. He trusts her implicitly, in her unusual and unique role as not-quite-a-servant but not-quite-a-lady, to gather information in a low-key and unobtrusive style.
Through this work, and also because Penelope is genuinely liked by James’ grandmother, the imperious and hard to please dowager duchess, thus keeping his grandmother out of his hair, James comes to greatly admire Penelope. Here, in the final book in the series, he becomes attracted to her beauty and quiet charm as well. And it’s very sweet to see their love story grow slowly and intimately.
There are many humorous moments in this story and, indeed, the entire series, especially in the growing relationship between James and Penelope. Poor Penelope, as a lowly companion, is only qualified to get a maid-in-training, a hilarious young woman who is “practicing” her skills on a very patient Penelope. And with the dowager duchess, Penelope begins a wacky matchmaking business named Madame X; this is a side business that the dowager concocted when James reined in her extravagant expenses.
And for all her bluster, the dowager is very astute. She quickly notices the attraction between her grandson and Penelope…and encourages it.Read more ›
