Merely a Miss

Overview

Miss Jane Matthews feels completely out of place amongst the finery of the ton. She's the daughter of a country vicar, for goodness sake, and nearly a spinster to boot. Frankly, she would prefer to stay that way. How can a lady of Quality start up her own modiste shop, after all?

Overview

Miss Jane Matthews feels completely out of place amongst the finery of the ton. She's the daughter of a country vicar, for goodness sake, and nearly a spinster to boot. Frankly, she would prefer to stay that way. How can a lady of Quality start up her own modiste shop, after all? But when her distant cousin-the Dowager Duchess of Somerton, of all people-offers to sponsor her for a Season in London, she agrees, but only so she can take the opportunity to search for a storefront for her business. Perhaps, in that regard, the Season won't all be in vain.

The widower of a loveless marriage, Peter Hardwicke, the Duke of Somerton, has already done his duty and provided an heir for his dukedom, so he sees no reason whatsoever to remarry. Even if, heaven forbid, something should happen to his son, he still has three younger brothers who are each quite capable of inheriting. Taking a wife would only mean adding a new responsibility to his already too-full schedule. He's more than busy enough keeping his mother, siblings, and children in line-not to mention sorting out the myriad problems plaguing one of his estates.

But when Lord Utley, one of Peter's childhood friends and a man who has been on the wrong side of Peter's ire for many years now, takes an unlikely interest in Jane, he has to intervene. Peter will be damned if he'll allow Utley to ruin yet another life. But will rescuing Jane from Utley's clutches land Peter with another loveless marriage?

    blah

    OK, this book was bad. I tried and I mean tried to read it but it was so bad. The heroine was supposed to be funny and engaging, NO. She wasn't. She is a well bred vicars daughter without a rebellious streak. So, I don't know where she learned to swear like she does. I don't think the author did any significant research or she would know the word bugger was a Bad word not really known to well bred young ladies. There was no chemistry, no one engaging and everything d r u g along so s l o w l y...I gave up. Which is rare. it was clear that she and the Duke were meant to wind up together, but why I will never know.

    This is a great read. With a good mixture of drama, and all the loves that makes a family I just read the review below me and how someone can't see the heroine as being rebellious must not have truly read this book.  For the time in history where Catherine had placed the story - she was most definitely rebellious.

    Very god story!

    I loved the characters, the heat and relationship that develops between the leads. I'd love to see/read stories about Sophie, Charlotte, Neil, and the brother returned from war - Richard! Would be nice to hear what developed for the rest of them!

    ENJOYABLE! This was the 3rd book in the series, and not as good as the previous 2. At times, I was frustrated with Jane. I would like to see a book about Neil or the older sister. Still WELL WORTH THE MONEY!! Loved Peter and his family, the author made them feel so real.
