Courting Miss Lancaster by Sarah M. Eden

Courting Miss LancasterCourting Miss Lancaster by Sarah M. Eden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sensuality Rating: Sweet

Harry Windover adores blonde, green-eyed Athena Lancaster, but alas, a penniless man like himself has no hope of winning a young noblewoman's hand. To add insult to injury, Athena's brother-in-law and guardian, the Duke of Kielder, has asked Harry to assist Athena in finding the gentleman of her dreams. But the lovesick Harry is cunning as well: as the weeks pass, he introduces Athena to suitors who are horrifically boring, alarmingly self-absorbed, and utterly ridiculous.

Athena can't comprehend why she is having so little success meeting eliglble and acceptable gentlemen. Indeed, her circle of admirers couldn't be less admirable-nothing like the loyal, gentle friend she's found in Harry. But how long can Harry's scheme be hidden before it is discovered? And what will Athena do when she uncovers Harry's deception? Escape into a charming regency world in this delightfully romantic comedy of manners that will entertain you to the very last word.

The characters in Courting Miss Lancaster were very believable and all interacted with each other in a realistic dialog. The romance was subtle and endearing but while I enjoyed the journey I did question some of the choices the H/H made. All in ALL completely clean and a definitely recommended read.
