Elaine Montford is supposed to marry a titled gentleman and thus do her duty to her family. She is fully prepared to do so and has accomplished the wise first move of becoming closely acquainted with a friend of Lady Dalby; Elaine expects a brilliant marriage to come from that tenuous, necessary connection.

Roger Ellery, a cavalry officer at home on leave, is not looking to marry. Far from it. But a chance meeting in Hyde Park, a bee sting, and some unexpected counsel from Sophia Dalby, of all people, result in a most seductive, most scandalous, most ardent rush to the altar.

If only Miss Montford will stay willing long enough to see the deed done.

A darling short story

This novella was fast paced and excellent at times. I did have problems keeping all of the young ladies straight with all of the names beginning with E. It is a comedy of errors. Elaine, according to her family needs to marry someone with a title. Mr. Ellery hasn't even thought of marriage. The two meet quite accidentally as Elaine is trailing a young Iroquois Indian man who happens to be the nephew of the notorious Lady Dalby. A young man who thinks he's saving a young lady from unwanted attentions and a bee sting turns their meeting into a possible scandal. How will it end for this unlikely pair? I had read stories from Claudia Dain before, but not in some time. I enjoyed this one in spite of the confusing E names of most of the female characters. I received an ARC of this book free from Netgalley so I could leave an honest review.

A historical romance that is both funny and sweet. I enjoyed the interaction between Elaine and Roger. The story is fast paced and held my interest. Enjoy!

Elaine and Roger's journey to love was a comedy of errors. Chasing Miss Montford was a story that I found funny. I loved that neither character was perfect, but they were a perfect match for each other. Despite other opinions they managed to find happiness by following their hearts. Was given a copy of Chasing Miss Montford by Claudia Dain for an honest review.

Originally published in the Anthology An Encounter at Hyde Park Miss Elaine Montford has been told that she must marry a titled gentleman. All her parents careful planning gets undone when she encounters Roger Ellery in Hyde Park. Thinking that she needs to be rescued, he practically drags her out of the park unchaperoned.  Trying to stop the rumors from spreading, they plan a small dinner party to stop the tongues from wagging. But what happens next might be an even bigger scandal... This was a very short read, less than an hour. It was quick paced and kept my attention. We even have a short visit with Sophia Dalby to make it that much more enjoyable. If you want to quick, light read, this is the story for you.
