My Thoughts 

Delightful! Roth was a wonderful romantic lead, and Charlotte was fantastic, to say nothing of the chemistry between the two. Though a shorter novella, the story doesn't come across as rushed (which this reader really appreciated). 

Ms Burke shows readers again with this fourth title in her Matchmaking Chronicles series her talent for telling an utterly enjoyable historical romance. 

Thank you to Zealous Quill Publishing and NetGalley for the DRC!


Widower James Ludlow, Earl of Rotherham, attends a house party in search of a mother for his two daughters, and his primary requirement is that he doesn’t fall in love. Having already given that emotion to his former wife without reciprocation, he prefers a mutually beneficial arrangement without sentimentality. However, he meets a charming widow with seemingly wonderful maternal instincts, and he can’t ignore the sparks between them. Perhaps a little passion wouldn’t be so unwelcome…

Everyone thinks Charlotte Dunthorpe is a widow, but she’s only pretending to be. When her dear friend invites her to a matchmaking house party that isn’t only for the purposes of marriage, Charlotte is tempted to indulge in a short liaison. Instead, the dashing and kind-hearted Rotherham offers her the chance for the family she always wanted. She must refuse or risk exposing her devastating secrets and ensuring the absolute ruin of all that she holds dear.
