Overview

With seven troublesome half sisters to marry off, Duncan, the Earl of Eads, has one problem: he's broke.

With the prospect of marriage to the pompous local curate, Miss Teresa Finch-Freeworth has one dream: to wed instead the handsome Highlander she saw at a ball.

How does a desperate lady convince a reluctant laird that she's the perfect bride for him? She strikes a wager! If she can find seven husbands for seven sisters, the earl must marry her.

Duncan has no intention of wedding the meddlesome maiden, and he gives her a deadline even the most audacious matchmaker can't meet—one month. But Teresa sets terms, too: with each bridegroom she finds, the earl must pay her increasingly intimate rewards . . .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This spin-off to Ashe’s “Falcon Club” series brings us the tale of Miss Teresa Finch-Freeworth and Duncan, the Earl of Eads. Teresa is known for her storytelling and wild imagination. Ever since one fateful ball, her fantasies have revolved around the Earl of Eads. With a pending betrothal to the vicar, Teresa must invent a story to get back to London and determine how to make her fantasies with the earl come true. Teresa suggests a wager: for each of Duncan’s seven sisters she can marry off, he must provide payment in the romantic gestures Teresa proposes—the final being marriage, of course.

Verdict This novella is simply too full of characters to provide any depth or level of feeling for any of them. The affectation of the Scottish brogue is also a bit much. Fans of Ashe’s “Falcon Club” books (e.g., How a Lady Weds a Rogue) will seek out this title, but others can pass it by.—Heather Lisa Maneiro, Minnesota State Univ. Lib. Moorhead
