Heiress's Convenient Husband cover

 

Review: This was an enjoyable book to read.  If you had read the first book in this series, you will appreciate getting reacquainted with them.  But at the same time, you have two new people who are at the forefront – James Howland, the magistrate, and Eva Faraday.  Eva has been banned by the Earl to the castle at Grace-by-the-Sea.  There are many twists and turns in this story, but this all comes down to James and Eva.  When the Earl shows up at their convenient wedding to stop it – but too late, things take a turn for the worse.  I was so mad at the Earl.  Then there is a mystery at the castle.  Someone seems to be coming in and walking the halls at night.  There is a cave that you can get to through the secret passageway that looks as if someone has been there.  Have the smugglers returned?  Could the Earl be involved?  What about James and Eva?  Will they ever be able to get away from the Earl?  These are all questions that will be answered – when you read the book.  5-star all the way!  Good job Regina!

 

Synopsis: The magistrate over a little Regency coastal village, James Howland, takes pride in protecting Grace-by-the-Sea from ne’er-do-wells, including his distant cousin, the Earl of Howland. So, when he discovers a young lady hiding in the family’s castle, his heart cannot decide which comes first—her rescue or his duty.

Outspoken Eva Faraday has been exiled to the castle for refusing to marry the man the earl picked for her. Her late father appointed the earl trustee over her considerable inheritance, which she cannot access until she turns twenty-five or marries. And if she marries, her husband controls the money. She’s not about to trust any Howland, but James seems ripe for rebellion. To thwart the earl’s power, the two agree to a marriage of convenience, only to discover there are others intent on using the earl’s castle for nefarious purposes. Eva and James must work together to solve the mystery and stop the earl once and for all so they can make a marriage that is far more than convenient.

This sweet, clean Regency romance is the sequel to The Matchmaker’s Rogue.

 

Regina Scott

 

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998).

Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens). Two of her novels, A Dangerous Dalliance and The Twelve Days of Christmas, have been translated into German. A Dangerous Dalliance and The Incomparable Miss Compton have been translated into Italian. Starstruck and Perfection have been translated into Dutch.

Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Tri-Cities of southeast Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born in 1959 and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents are excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.
