4.0 out of 5 stars Llikeable Hero and Heroine, 19 July 2014
By 
This review is from: When The Marquess Met His Match: An American Heiress in London (Kindle Edition)
Our Hero - Nicholas, Marquess of Trubridge, heir of the Duke of Lansdowne: Nicholas has a very spotty past - perhaps not all his fault, but he has chosen to do his own thing and not allow Society to rule his life choosing instead to spend most of his time in Paris. Having been on the outs with his father - the Duke of Lansdowne for the past several years, mostly due to his cold father's manipulation in his life, Nicholas suddenly finds himself in dire need of a wife - a very rich wife. For indeed, his father has cut him off from the income due him from his mother's trust until he marries and marries well - to the point that his father has made up a list of all the qualities in a wife that will suit and Nicholas must follow these requirements in order to begin receiving any income. Nicholas will have none of it and decides to marry the wealthy wife he will choose and flaunt his choice in his father's face.

Our Heroine - Lady Belinda Featherstone: Belinda is considered to be the finest marriage broker in England by American wealthy families who are seeking a title for their marriageable daughters. Belinda's passion for her job comes from her own past - at the age of 17 she was a wealthy heiress living in her home land of American when she was sought out by her former husband, The Earl Featherstone. Belinda made the mistake of falling head over heels and accepted Featherstone's proposal only to have her heart broken when he took her to London, continued in his rakehell ways after marriage and spent all her money on gambling, mistresses and whatever - then died. He refused to leave her any funds in his will and she is determined that none of her protegees will suffer the same grief and heartache she suffered.

The Story: Nicholas comes to Belinda's home seeking her aid in finding him a wife. She soundly rejects him based on his disreputable character. They have a war of words and Nicholas departs in some consternation not being accustomed to women refusing him much of anything. At this point, he doesn't realize that when Belinda looks at him, she is reminded all too well of her deceased husband. Nicholas knows he must live on credit or take out a loan from one of his friends to make his way until he can find a wife. Nicholas and Belinda go back and forth until she finally agrees to help him if he will promise to leave one of her primary protegees, Rosalie, alone.

As time goes on, Nicholas and Belinda are more than attracted to one another and eventually everything begins to bomb. Nicholas is having second thoughts about his life and Belinda begins to think perhaps Nicholas isn't a replica of her own deceased husband after all. Parts of this book are very sweet and tender. I particularly enjoyed the way that Nicholas begin to rethink his life and what he wanted out of it. Belinda helps him see that he must take some responsibility for the way his life has turned out and not blame everything on his father. Enjoyable read.

I did enjoy this book but it was definitely missing something for me. Looking forward to the other American Heiress books and hope the LLG can get her mojo back.
