Sandra Heath
"A delightful love story, the tale of an angry Prince Charming whose pride and temper are soothed and conquered by a spirited Cinderella. Such beautifully drawn characters had me rooting for a happy outcome. It's a Regency fairytale, without spells or magic, just the enchantment of a love that defies society's rules."

Meet the Author

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, two dogs, 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."

    Fabulous!

    Radford, the fourth Viscount Evers, is injured while in the Peninsula. Being that close to death forces Radford to admit that he must settle down with a wife and beget an heir. He even has his irritating best friend, Lord Nathan Wynter, help him make up a list as to what he required of a potential viscountess. He sets his eye on Lady Lillian, the lovely and vain youngest daughter of the Duke of Newbury. However, it is a complicated and outrageous lady named Miss Margaret 'May' Sheffers that intrigues him to the point of distraction. .................. May is the only one who dares to stand up and go toe-to-toe with the sufferable Viscount Evers. Her parents disappeared years ago in a South American jungle. Uncle Sires is trying to have May's parents declared dead. Therefore, all May's funds have been seized and are tied up in court. If Uncle Sires (a.k.a. the Earl of Redfield) succeeds, he will inherit all the money rightfully belonging to May. If that was the only problem, May could easily deal with it. However, Uncle Sires is trying to throw her into the arms of a man old enough to be her grandfather. If Uncle Sires has his way, May will be wed to the man within two weeks. Yet once May and Radford share one passionate kiss, things begin to change. ....................... ***** There are a few more secondary characters that add keep two sub-plots running and the story moving right along. I never found myself bored. In fact, I read this entire novel in one sitting. I could not put the book down. I feel bad for any Regency Romance fan who misses out on this fantastic novel! Highly recommended! *****

    Pretty good

    I started this a little stand offish and didn't known how I was going to take it. But overall I liked the plot, and the characters and drama in between. Wished it could have been longer. More romance between the two main characters would have been nice. But the end of the story kind of wraps that up. I recommend it for anyone who is looking for a different romance novel from the hot and steamy ones.

    THE MARRIAGE LIST by Dorothy McFalls

    Dorothy McFalls¿ debut novel, THE MARRIAGE LIST, will whisk you away to early nineteenth century England and captivate you with the intriguing story of the dashingly handsome Radford and feisty independent May. Ms. McFalls has penned an alluring tale enhanced by her research of the Regency period and her gifted way with words. The marriage list was devised by Radford, the fourth Viscount Evers, of all the qualities a wife should have. Radford feels the time is near for him to find a wife and produce an heir. He has always been the most eligible of bachelors and enjoyed the fact but since receiving a battle wound, that left him with a stiff leg, Radford feels inadequate and wanting. He is genuinely surprised that young ladies still swoon over him. Radford¿s outward appearance belies his feelings as he bullies his best friend Lord Nathan Wynter and puts on a rakish pose around the ladies. His bravado is put to the test the day May Sheffers appears at his door. May¿s parents disappeared many years ago and now her uncle presumes them dead and had her money sized by the courts. This places May in dire straits because she can not pay her rent and she and her elderly aunt are threatened with eviction. Her uncle¿s solution is for her to marry but May will not give in and instead appeals to her landlord, Radford, for an extension in paying her debt. At about the same time, Radford is composing his marriage list. Needless to say, May does not have a single quality on the list but Radford can not seem to get her out of his mind. He soon regrets not helping her when he finds out the alternative for May is marriage with a much older man. Radford and May attend many of the same events in the city of Bath; he pursuing Lady Lillian Newbury and she accompanying her aunt. Neither will admit their attraction to each other even after a stolen kiss that can not be forgotten. THE MARRIAGE LIST is an extraordinarily entertaining read. Ms McFalls not only gives us a most appealing hero and heroine but also provides an interesting secondary couple that I hope she plans to include in a future novel. I whole heartedly recommend that THE MARRIAGE LIST be placed on the very top of your list of ¿books to buy¿. Donna Zapf, CataRomance Reviews
