Review: When the Marquess Met His Match by Laura Lee Guhrke

In the first of a dazzling new series, USA Today bestselling author Laura Lee Guhrke introduces London's most renowned matchmaker—and a scoundrel intent on seducing his way to the altar.

She's the matchmaker . . .

Lady Belinda Featherstone's job is to guide American heiresses to matrimony, and away from men like Nicholas, Marquess of Trubridge. But the charming, disreputable marquess needs a wealthy bride, and he hires Belinda to help him find one. Her task seems easy: find that scoundrel the sort of wife he so richly deserves. But Nicholas's hot, searing kiss soon proves her task will be anything but easy.

He's the perfect match . . .

Nicholas plans to wed a rich, pretty young darling to restore his fortune, and he's happy to pay a marriage broker to help him. But one taste of Belinda's lips and Nicholas's sensible scheme to marry for money goes awry, and he yearns to show his beautiful matchmaker he's the perfect match . . . for her.

Lady Belinda Featherstone married for love.  She thought the feeling was mutual with her new husband.  When he dies, she discovers love of her inheritance is what he was passionate about (that, and a string of mistresses).  A engaging American woman, she puts her gumption to the test and decides to help other young American heiresses avoid the trap she fell into.  

The Marquess of Trubridge is in search of a young American heiress and is consistently foiled by Lady Featherstone.  They kiss, however, and now the marquess can think of nothing but her. 

I really enjoyed Belinda and Nicholas's barbs.  They both protest too much concerning their mutual attraction, so it was fun to watch them finally give in to temptation. 

(A very special thank you to Avon Romance, Harper Collins, and Edelweiss for providing me with an ARC of When The Marquess Met His Match.)
