ABOUT BOOK: LORD BENTLEY NEEDS A BRIDE
It’s late August, and the Earl of Bentley must find, persuade, and marry a titled and moneyed English lady before October 30th or he will lose his estates and finances. So, Bentley, unlearned in the Rules of Love and the intricacies of women’s psyches, confronts a ticking clock. The socially awkward Lord hires a matchmaker.
Lady Camilla Merriweather, eldest daughter of a viscount, must use her considerable beauty to marry a rich, titled, Englishman to save her large family from the poverty brought upon them by huge losses in the stock market. Due to a mix-up, Lady Camilla finds herself at a house party set in motion by the Earl’s matchmaker. Will a series of blunders, misadventures, and competing grooms lead to a happily-ever-after ending?

Anne, what did you write?, I'll tell you what you wrote, you wrote a story that was so fun and such a joy to read, if you like BBC programs like my wife and I do, shows like Poriot, Miss Marple, Mid Sumer Murders, Morse, Frost, Up Stairs Down stairs, Duchess of Duke Street, Downton Abby you'll love this story, it takes place in the early 1800's about a young man pressured by his dying father although it doesn't know that yet and a very jealous brother that will do almost anything to prevent him from getting married so James the older brother will not inherit their fathers fortune, does he find a bride in time? sure does although with the rules of dating it's a wonder any one got married, the do's and don'ts read like a Hollywood A lister's grocery list of do and don't buy, Anne does a wonderful job of explaining English Peerage, I always wondered what leavel the Dukes, Earls and all the others at in the royal line, well, out of an act of passion, love, pressure, and forgetting the stupid rules of dating he daringly and boldly takes the beautiful lady Camilla out in to the garden, skin touches, a kiss happens he sits on the same bench besides her then on his knees he proposes to his one and only, prayers are answered, I got excited right along with Lord Bentley hoping it could pull it off, Lord Bentley needs A Bride I gladly give it two thumbs up, a real winner.
How long do these typically take to arrive? I haven't received mine yet. I'm excited to read it. :)
Oh what a lovely weekend read! I adored both Bentley and Camilla as they interacted together. Such a sweet love story and a twist on the “must get married” story line. Swoon-worthy hero and lovable heroine are well-written and with believable flaws. I loved the whole thing and didn’t want it to end!

Lord Bentley Needs a Bride has some good plot twists and good information about how men and ladies in the nobility had many trials on the way to getting married. The lists for ranks of nobility, rules for courting, and signals with a lady's fan were an interesting addition. For a novella, the main characters were rounded out enough to see them grow in their trials.
