Overview

First published as a Dell Candlelight Regency, Unsuitable Suitors is a classic "Georgette Heyer style" Regency romance.

Amelia's father has gambled away the very roof over their heads. Her mother is deceased. At two and twenty, Amelia Grant takes charge, determined to make her sisters' fortunes, establish them in the bosom of society, and keep her independence.

It is a day's journey from their small village to the glittering world of Bath. But it is an appalling distance in every other way. Their formidable Aunt Sophie agrees to launch Amelia's younger sisters, but Amelia's plan is doomed to go awry. Each sister knows her own mind. As for Amelia, the matchmaker, she is so determined to be practical, she blindly misreads every heart, including her own.

Unsuitable Suitors is a clean, engaging Regency romance featuring the daughters of an overly careless father. The eldest, Amelia, is burdened with how to feed and keep a roof over the head of her younger siblings after their father gambled away the last of their dwindling funds. Having two of her three sisters marriageble but un-dowered means Amelia must also bear the burden of detering the unsuitable gentleman that make their acquaintance in their new neighborhood. A pleasant way to spend some quality reading time.

in the tradition of Georgette Heyer. Strong plot, fun characters, and gee, an HEA!
