The Matchmaker And The Marquess by Scarlett Scott


I loved this witty, sexy, turbulent story!  At times, Dorset and Clementine made me smile and laugh, and at other times I almost swooned!  I enjoyed the witty plot and outrageous characters.  It was an excellent introduction to a unique series.

Dorset, a rake who thinks he’ll never love again, finds himself at a matchmaking house party.  Clementine is a matchmaker, thinking she will never find love.  Through a hilarious incident, these unlikely pair find themselves in an arrangement neither desires.  Both have preconceived notions of the other.  These prejudices are tested through humor and passion.  The situations this couple finds themselves in are laugh-out-loud.  At first, Dorset is a rogue with a broken heart.  Clementine is heartbroken and, at times, annoying to Dorset.  

These characters are larger than life.  Their connection, at first rejected, becomes a fiery flame of passion.  The plot, even though brief, was sharp and sassy.  This short story flew by; I read it in one sitting.  I hated to see it end!  I have no critiques; this was a lovely romance!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the author.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The Matchmaker And The Marquess is book one in the Second Chance Manor series.  This series is different as three separate authors are involved.  Merry Farmer and Caroline Lee also contribute to this series.  This series focuses on a group of friends who find themselves at a matchmaking house party hosted by their former headmistress at their finishing school.  Each young lady finds an unlikely suitor.  Scarlett writes a funny, heartfelt story.  I hate that these are short stories; I didn’t want this one to end!  I enjoyed this book so much that I can’t wait for the second!  The next book in the series is The Angel And The Aristocrat by Merry Farmer.   It debuts July first.  These books are a great way to spend a rainy afternoon!
