Descripción

Considered unmarriageable by many due to her questionable parentage, May has let her hopes for true love fade and devoted herself to a life caring for her ailing aunt. But when May is unable to pay rent on the humble cottage in which she and her aunt reside, she must plead her case to the imposing viscount willing to toss two helpless women in the gutter. A wounded hero of the Peninsula campaign,Viscount Radford Evers is known for his harsh bearing, stubborn pride, and skillful avoidance of wedding vows. But with his family pressuring him to marry and produce an heir, he has little choice but to begin the search for a bride. To this end, he creates a list detailing the perfect wife.  May meets none of the list's criteria, so why does his heart beat madly at the sight of the elegantly shabby miss? He is sorely tempted to toss his list and all that's right and proper into the fire to marry this most unsuitable lady…

Sobre el autor

Award-winning author Dorothy McFalls was born in New York but raised in South Carolina. She makes her home on an artsy beach community in South Carolina with her husband, impish dog and fluffy cat. Though writing has always been a passion for her, she pursued an undergraduate degree in Wildlife Biology and a graduate degree in Public Administration and Urban Planning. She then put her educational experience to use, having worked in all branches and all levels of government including local, regional, state, and federal. She even spent time during college working for a non-profit environmental watchdog organization.Switching from government service and community planning to fiction writing wasn't as big of a change as some might think. Her government work was all about the stories of the people and the places where they live. As an urban planner, Dorothy loved telling the stories of the people she met. And from that, her desire to tell the stories that were so alive in her heart grew until she could not ignore it any longer. In 2001, she took a leap of faith and pursued her dream of writing fiction full-time.Now an award-winning multi-published author, Dorothy enjoys writing in several different genres. Her works have been nominated for many awards including: Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award, Reviewers International Organization Award, National Reader's Choice Award, CataRomance Reviewers' Choice Award, and The Romance Reviews Today Perfect 10! Award. Reviewers have called her work: "amazing", "perfect", "filled with emotion", and "lined with danger."

    I liked the book but it being narrated by an America accent spoiled it for me, a book about English Aristocracy just didn’t fit well with the accent, although this is in no way the narrators fault.

    Cute story.
    The narrator needs to work on her pronunciation.

    The plot was mildly interesting, although quite contrived, which I know is a given in this genre, however it seemed ridiculous even when in the middle of reading it, not just after putting it down. The characters and descriptions were contradictory. It felt vaguely like a clumsy attempt to rip off one of Georgette Heyers more simple novels. Oh yeah, and the blatant feminism was annoying.

    Spoilers ahead.

    I can't stand politically correct, I-am-woman-hear-me-roar, modern females in my historical romances. I get a headache from the eye rolling. This hit on so many of my pet peeves, I would be pained to list them all typing with one finger on my phone. Everyone was so perfect or cliché. The heroine scoffed at being saved by a man and preferred being the grubby relative among her highfalutin family. Poor Cinderella was deserted by mom and pop and left with a beloved aunt and evil uncle. I guessed correctly what happened to her parents (though I was half joking because surely she wouldn't go with something that lame). The prized mare loved only the heroine while the spoiled other woman wanted the H to sell her. The h is supposedly right about everything. When the H followed her layperson suggestions, he underwent miraculous healing in record time. There's tons more but I'm getting a cramp. I can't believe I wasted a book credit on this. But please don't let me stop you from taking a read. I don't think my opinion is in the majority. It was ok between the pet peeves.
