Product Description

From the Inside Flap

In this exhilarating new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather, a trio of spirited sisters secretly run a thriving matchmaking service. But these three good catches of impeccable pedigree have little interest in matrimony themselves--until, one by one, they meet their matches.Constance Duncan may be the eldest of three sisters, but she has more important things on her mind than finding a husband--for herself, at any rate. Through the Personals services of her popular newspaper, The Mayfair Lady, Constance connects lonely hearts. But her own heart lies in her work, and nothing will distract her from it--until she finds herself irresistibly drawn to a man of disastrously different views. Max Ensor is a politician whose outmoded attitudes outrage her--even as his powerful presence intrigues her. Clearly there is only one thing to do with such an exasperating man: convert him! Little does Constance know that Max has the same plan in mind for her.... What follows is a fiercely passionate duel in which two headstrong people discover that, differences or not, sometimes one gender cannot--will not--do without the other.

About the Author

Jane Feather was born in Cairo, Egypt, and grew up in New Forest, in the south of England. She began her highly successful career after she and her family moved to Washington D.C. in 1981. She now has more than ten million books in print.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jane Feather has been turning out well-crafted tales for so long, to where you expect somewhere along the way that she might loose steam and let readers down, as many of the other bigger names in Romance seem to be doing these days. Well, if she does...it will be another day, for this book is a smashing good time!
First in a trilogy about the Duncan Sisters - Constance, Prudence and Chastity - they are not the Victorian misses their names would lead one to believe. They are strong women's righters and publish - anonymously of course - a suffragette rag called "The Mayfair Lady".
In no hurry to marry, sister number 1 - Constance runs headlong into Max Ensor, a member of parliament, and sparks and fur fly! For Max's view on a woman's place in society vastly differ from the fiery Constance - in fact that are diametrically opposed! But politics be damn, when sexual attraction pull two such together, and we know they will fall in love.
Feather keeps the pace moving with witty repartee between Max and Constance, and it's fun to watch their love round off the harsh edges of both of their beliefs, especially as they struggle to learn the day-to-day way to make a marriage a marriage and not a battle ground.
Max and Constance leap off the pages. They are intelligent, adults and as they try to score points on the others, it will keep readers delighted. This one is a KEEPER and leaves us desperate for the next two tales in the series.
Very highly recommended!

HASH(0x8ee25fd8) out of 5 stars novel failed to meet my expectations 7 Feb. 2004
By tregatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Set at the beginning of the 1900s, "Bachelor List" is the first installment in a trilogy that focuses on the exploits of the unconventional Duncan sisters who own (secretly) a women's newspaper the "Mayfair Lady." The sisters are all members of Society so that their reputations would be ruined if anyone were to ever learn about their involvement with a newspaper that is slightly radical in tone and that discusses politics and campaigns actively for women's suffrage. Busy with putting out the newspaper, running their newly formed matchmaking enterprise, and trying desperately to keep their family finances afloat, the sisters have no time for romance. But all this is about to change. First up is eldest sister, Constance Duncan's story. Constance's heart was broken when her fiance was killed in battle at Mafeking, and she thinks that she's put all thoughts of romance behind her. That is until she decides to cross verbal swords with politician Max Ensor. He, of course, views all suffragettes as troublemakers, and suspecting that Constance is a member of the Suffrage Movement, has decided to use her in order to discover what these rabble rousers are up to; while Constance has decided to see if she can manipulate Max into seeing things her way. What neither of them counted on was the instant and compelling attraction that each would feel for the other, or on how this attraction would impact on their differing political agendas...
Unfortunately for me, "Bachelor List" failed to live up to it's promise. The book was actually structured around a rather novel and interesting premises: a trio of intelligent and resourceful sisters who are passionately devoted to furthering the cause of women's suffrage and how they try to achieve their goals using cloak and dagger methods because of all the hostility that much of Society has for the suffrage movement. But the authour failed to develop this theme adequately enough for me. (Perhaps I expect too much?) Max behaved in a condescending manner towards Constance from start to finish, which really put me off him; and while Constance did flash her eyes at him everytime he said something stupid, she also let him get away with far too much in my book. Max didn't believe in women's suffrage at the beginning of the book, and doesn't really change his mind or stand about this issue by the time the book ends. And while this was a daring approach for a romance novel, what I had banked on was for him to realise how wrong he was and change. As it stood, I was left wondering as to whether or not Max and Constance would be able to work through their political differences. And truth to tell it wouldn't at all be difficult to forsee a not so happily ever-after ending in the future if one character doesn't have a change of heart soon.
But my main disappointment with the book was that I really wanted to read a ROMANTIC novel -- not one about fervent sexual and sensual need -- but one about the meeting of minds and souls. I didn't really think that this was achieved in this novel at all. But that's just my take on things.

HASH(0x8e7364a4) out of 5 stars i really liked it 17 April 2005
By ella-lynne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
i had an overkill of romances and stopped reading them for a while in favour of biographies when i picked up The Bachelor List- it was fantastic after all that serious reading it was fun and fabulous.. quite a few people didn't seem to like, but to me, it was the perfect thing on a lazy afternoon or a stressful day at work- perfect!

HASH(0x8ea8c828) out of 5 stars Wonderful! 10 Oct. 2005
By Janice Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really loved this book. The first page hooked me and I was a goner from there. Constance, Prudence, and Chastity are very well-developed characters that make you feel as if you know them personally. The story is very good with secret newspapers, self-indulgent papas, and a rather explosive relationship with a parliment member. I rather good read. I enjoyed every minute.

HASH(0x8e88fe04) out of 5 stars Not my favorite Feather book 21 Feb. 2004
By mickey71 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I know it's the first of three books, and maybe that's why things seem either resolved far too quickly and easily, or not resolved at all. And as far as Max and Constance go, I just didn't like their chcaracters, individually or as a couple. There is nothing romantic about this book. The characters go from "let's use each other" to "happily ever after" for no apparent reason. They are both more calculating than anything else.

On the positive side, the relationship among the sisters is similar to that of the sisters in "Valentine," and is quite pleasant. That's the only thing that makes me look forward to the next two books, as the other two sisters seem much more likeable than Constance. Also, anyone who's been complaining that Feather's last few books were too violent, too deep, may enjoy this book. There's no backstory of dangerous intrigue or life-threatening situations going on here (although, the possibility for one in future books is offered through one of the loose threads that isn't tied up at the end).

Overall, I love Feather's intelligent writing, but these characters put me off.

HASH(0x8e731618) out of 5 stars Easy reading, but some oddities... 19 Feb. 2005
By Jane James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I like the writer's style of prose, and have enjoyed other stories by her. There were some things about this book that bothered me, however.

From the start, the heroine and her sisters are at what I thought was a tea room - drinking tea and eating pastries. Then one of the women is asked to DANCE. That seemed odd.

The heroine dates - as in going on dates to restaurants and parties with a man.

Maybe that was done during this time period, but I don't think it was done by members of the England upper class.

The story is written in what I've come to think of as a Regency style - but it takes place in the late 19th century.

I did like the characters, but did feel that they jumped into bed too quickly and too casually.

That sounds like I didn't like the book - but I did! The writer has a very smooth style of writing. I did enjoy the feminist viewpoint - it was refreshing.
