Overview

The Husband Hunt by Jillian Hunter

From Jillian Hunter, a mesmerizing author who "weaves a spell over her audience" (Romantic Times), comes a sensual, witty new novel about an untamed Scottish beauty and a rakish English lord who set each other's souls on fire.
Catriona Grant is desperate. Fleeing a forced marriage in Scotland, she arrives on the doorstep of Rutleigh Hall seeking shelter as a distant relation, only to find that Knight Dennison, the Viscount Rutleigh, may be worse than the man she fled. True to his dangerous reputation, Knight threatens to toss the penniless, flame-haired impostor out -- until she produces the family ring as proof of her identity.
Thrust into the role of guardian, the dark, compelling Knight has his doubts about the lovely Scottish lass, who's clearly keeping secrets -- but her wit, beauty, and artless grace are hard to resist. When his sister starts husband-hunting for Catriona, the idea of any other man possessing her is suddenly unthinkable. For Knight realizes that there's only one possible groom for her: himself!

In 1814, escaping from her odious brother¿s latest nasty scheme of marrying her to a geriatric widower old enough to be her grandfather, Catriona Grant flees her home. In abject poverty, she seeks shelter at a third cousin¿s estate only to learn he died in battle three years ago. His widow, Olivia resides in the home of her brother, Viscount Rutleigh. Seeing her choices being between her brother and the rakish sibling of her cousin¿s widow, Catriona takes a chance on the unknown because the known is too devilish for her. The Viscount Knight Dennison is suspicious of Catriona¿s claims of blood to his deceased brother-in-law even though she shows a family resemblance and display a family heirloom as proof. Knight investigates his guest while his sister befriends and offers to sponsor her with local society. Knight holds off tossing out Cat because her presence has revitalized his mourning sibling. Soon he finds himself charmed by this Celtic with the gift of sight falling in love with Cat. Readers need to understand that THE HUSBAND HUNT is an atypical Regency romance though on the surface it contains all the necessary elements of the sub-genre. Instead, the interesting story line includes magical and otherworldly elements that embellish an engaging plot. The characters are a delight as the lead couple is fun to watch as they squabble while falling in love. The support cast comprises of several amusing eccentrics as well as a secondary romance. Readers who relish a humorous offbeat novel need hunt no further than this charming book. Harriet Klausner

But was glad it was over. I have read several books by this author and laughed my head off. But, something about this book and the characters I just didn't care for. Maybe it was me. Seemed like the plot struggled to be interesting and really wasn't.

This book was very interesting and very romantic, and there were some very funny one-liners. But let's take the handsome hero, Knight Dennison. Other than initially, I don't think the name Dennison ever appeared in the story again, and the name, Knight, could it have been any less original? His sister Olivia was supposedly the most gentle and altruistic person alive yet that wasn't really true. She was bossy and had many unkind thoughts, especially towards Knight's ex-fiancee, Arabella, whom she 'could not stand.' Speaking of Arabella, we read often that she left Knight for another man, yet we never knew WHY she did it. And she wasn't an unkind person. Lamont Montgomery, Catriona's childhood friend - I held out great hope for this guy. I actually liked him and wished that he had a bigger role in the book, as a good guy, of course. The whole book was pretty superficial and not very convincing with the stones and stuff, but it was just so romantic that's all that really mattered in the end. However, I will say that, once Knight realized he was in love with the lovely Catriona, he kept saying it over and over and over until it was sickening. His friend Wendell was a delight.
