A CONFOUNDING FEMALE Miss Georgianna Beverly is quite content with her life just as it is Happily unshackled, she is free to pursue her secret talent as an author of popular poetry Certainly she is not opposed to love, in fact, she is quite skilled in the art of matchmaking for her sisters and cousins But what man would ever want to wed such a contrary miss as herself A CONFOUNDING FEMALE Miss Georgianna Beverly is quite content with her life just as it is Happily unshackled, she is free to pursue her secret talent as an author of popular poetry Certainly she is not opposed to love, in fact, she is quite skilled in the art of matchmaking for her sisters and cousins But what man would ever want to wed such a contrary miss as herself a dedicated bluestocking who would rather debate politics than dance who prefers the company of books over simpering husband hungry females A CONFIRMED BACHELOR Lord Everhart had nothing in mind but a scheme of mutual convenience when he first set eyes on the sprite of a girl whose quick intelligence belied her youthful appearance Though Georgi is not concerned with the ways of the ton, she happily agrees to help him foil the scheming ape leaders determined to see him wed While their sham courtship raises eyebrows, no one is stunned than his lordship when he realizes that somewhere in this charade, he has completely lost his heart Now, he must persuade Georgi to do the same. Bestseller Kindle The Family Matchmaker Surprisingly, this one drew me in much faster, despite starting with the more common scene of h/h meeting. It's shorter and faster paced than the previous one (I read this morning), but while in that way perhaps more conventional it is still a more entertaining read. Georgi envying Everhart his various eyebrow moves simply was endearing.I'm not sure if I have the damnest luck in chosing books or if it's yet another coincidence, but like A Lady's Deception, this book also features temporary blindness (of a secondary character), fishing companionably and riding/racing each other (h/h). Since the heroine, though petite and curvy, is also just as capable and cool as the previous one, that's ok though. While in ALD I noted the rare thing of a h/h not arguing or being in disagreement, there is already some of that trope in this book, although he apologises for shouting at her when she thought he'd be happy they had - together - managed a dangerous situation.Those - the liveliness, the focus on a time and a place, the strength of character of the heroine - were the good bits.Yes, you guessed it - the ending suddenly sucked. Where the book had set them up as Everhart's passion being too much for the beautiful other girl, and I was waiting for Georgi to discover it not repulsive, and while precisely that seemed to happen after an accident Georgi started to kiss him - suddenly it's all gone.The cousin Vincent is introduced, begging for a novel of his own, and Georgi becomes suddenly!violently!ill! In fast-forward-motion, that is crammed in when you think it's already over, she does not remember her kiss, thinks the tame tame passionless one is her first as is good and proper, keeps languishing on couches, and the book peters out in blablabla - did you know Georgi was also a great novelist? what a useless plot detail! oh and the title MAKES NO SENSE, there is no matchmaker, but then the blurb is also completely wrong!The reader was lead, no, dumped, from what I call the natural projectory to expect - something. Even something more than in ALD or, say, Chesney. Not this deflation! It makes no sense. Had a ghost writer finished this? An overzealous editor? I'd already oggled other romances to wishlist from her *mopes*
