Jan Crow's Review:
Tristan James Gatewick, the Duke of Shelbourne, has been
declared England’s most sought-after bachelor in England. He’s postponed finding a bride for several
years but finds that he should expedite his marrying. So now he’s attending balls and parties only
to be followed around by a gaggle of giggling young women not anywhere close to
what he is looking for in a wife.
He had so
many women after him vying for his attention until one night when he steps on
the fan of the one woman at the ball who wasn’t begging him for attention,
Tessa Mansfield. After finding out
she’s the local matchmaker he decides to hire her to find him a wife. And she does, 24 potential wives. Twenty-four, beautiful young women whose
families and themselves would love to catch the most eligible bachelor in
Through a series of tests and
games, Tristan would eventually choose his bride. Eventually there are only two candidates
left. Both were beautiful, talented and
smart. To choose one would hurt the
other’s feelings. So, tormented, his
decision must be made
And there’s suspense when an
old suitor arrives with desires of marrying Tessa. But now Tristan has to deal with feelings
that he didn’t expect to feel.
Vicki has filled this book with
laugh out loud adventures as each of the ladies compete for Tristan’s
attention. There were also moments I
wanted to cry with the characters. I
immediately became so entwined with the characters that I was there with them in
has promised us more of these characters.
I so look forward to Hawk’s story that I plead with Vicki to hurry,
hurry, hurry. I need my next fix on the
Vicki Dreiling books!
