The Favourite Heiress…
Once engaged to
the future Duke of Strathmore, the beautiful Lady Clarice Langham now
finds herself in the humiliating position of celebrating his marriage –
to another woman. As a result of the scandal, it seems her reign as
London's most eligible debutante has come to an end. But things begin
to look up when handsome and charming rake David Radley makes it clear
that, at least as far as he's concerned, she's still the catch of the
The Illegitimate Son…
The eldest son of the Duke
of Strathmore, David Radley has been raised alongside his father's
legitimate children. But while he is generally received as part of the
family, not everyone thinks he should be, and especially not Clarice's
father, the Earl of Langham, who forbids her from having anything to do
So, there I was back in time, where the “Oh So Proper” Ton looks down their aristocratic noses at anyone who may have a whiff of scandal in their backgrounds. Makes me want to break out in the Chicken Dance as I pass the ammonia around for those suffering vapors! Too bad David Radley doesn’t have that option and must bear the label of bastard, fairly or not. In spite of his wealthy and powerful father, his own fortune, David has not helped his cause, being a randy young man in his youth. One young maiden has always had his heart, but as a suitor, he is less than desirable. Can he catch the eye and heart of Lady Clarice Langham and convince her they belong together?
With a silently torturous background of her own, Clarice’s heart is drawn to the handsome David, but her father has different ideas for her future. Will she be stuck in an unholy marriage to the disgusting, deceitful cad who has her father’s approval or will her grandmother show her another way to win her man?
An Unsuitable match by Sasha Cottman is a delightful trip back in time, with a feisty heroine, a dashing hero, the required evil cad and THE best grandmother ever! From the parties of London to the rolling hills of the country, beautiful scenes are painted with Ms. Cottman’s words. She manages to create high tension scenes with ease and her sensual moments? Absolutely hot! No one will ever convince me the Ton was not a little frisky, again!
