Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Bennett (A Seduction in Scarlet) launches the Husband Hunters Club series with this sweet early Victorian romance. The dowager duchess of Somerton, a penniless bohemian’s daughter, raised her children to be proper in every way, but her haughty son, Sinclair, harbors secret artistic longings. Sir Peter Belmont, a baronet and scam artist, raised his children to help him fleece their neighbors, but his hoyden daughter, Eugenie, dreams of respectability and love. A meet-cute involving three young boys and a goat sends Sinclair and Eugenie down the bumpy path of cross-class love, which unexpectedly leads to Scotland when Eugenie’s wayward brother helps Sinclair’s extremely silly sister and her meek chaperone run away from home. Any reader willing to accept that a duke might wed a common conman’s daughter will enjoy the duo’s adorably awkward and forthright conversations as they help each other escape their upbringings and find true happiness.

Meet the Author

Sara Bennett has always had an interest in history, and to survive a series of mind-numbing jobs, she turned to writing historical romance. She lives in an old house, with her husband and animals too numerous to mention, in the state of Victoria, Australia, where she tries to keep the house and garden tidy, but rarely succeeds—she'd rather be writing or reading.

    A humorous Pride and Prejudice-like story

    The latest in the Husband Hunters Club focuses on the daughter of a baronet and conman, Eugenie. While her father works on fleecing people and her siblings seem set to follow in his footsteps, Eugenie longs for respectability. When her friends put her on the spot to name her ideal husband she names her oh-so-respectable neighbor, the Duke of Somerton. Sinclair has been attracted to Eugenie after their accidental meeting involving a goat. She appeals to the side of him that longs to be less than proper. This story featuring an appealing couple finding what they most desire in each other is sure to be enjoyed by those who like romances that cross class barriers.

    I wanted to like this more

    Usually if Harriet Klausner likes the book I like it too. But this book drove me crazy. It started well, but then I started to really worry about the hero. he started taking on almost stalker proportions. The way he thought about the heroine, the way that he obsessed over her: it wasn't healthy, it was actually kind of creepy. I've read books before with a hero blames the heroine for his behavior. In this book it seems even worse and I didn't like it. once I start feeling icky about a book it's hard to stick with it. While I did finish this book, I didn't leave with a sense of happiness. I really wanted to like it more.

    Readers will enjoy this warm battle of wits as love and DNA battle for supremacy

    In 1837, Eugenie Belmont yearns to escape the scams of her family led by her father the baronet who taught his offspring to con the unsuspecting. She wants respectability and believes Sinclair St. John; a Duke from the prim and proper Somerton family is perfect for her.

    Sinclair, a secret wannabe artist, meets her family when he returns their wastrel goat to them. As she makes it clear she wants him, Sinclair must deal with ducal family affairs as his mother the dowager orders him to force his sister to marry her mom's chosen one. Before he knows what happened, Sinclair is falling in love with Eugenie in Scotland where their siblings are causing havoc. He wants her to be his mistress, but she wants him to be her spouse.

    This entertaining early Victorian romance contains two interesting lead protagonists whose debates are preciously clumsy yet deeply honest. They turn the historical into a fun read in spite of their respective families coming out of sub-genre central tasking. Readers will enjoy this warm battle of wits as love and DNA battle for supremacy.
