About Suitors for the Proper Miss
She wants to marry a Lord, as Lordly and titled as possible. He wants nothing more to do with her than saddle her horses.
Miss Lucy Standish has wanted to marry a future duke for as long as she could remember. Days in the cold, with little coal for their small cottage and little to eat, she would dream of the days she saved all her sisters with a marriage to a man of such elevated title that they would never be poor again, that her children and their children forever would be cared for.
Mr. Conor Sullivan has never overstepped the lines of propriety. He does everything he can to treat Miss Lucy with respect. But his heart is overcome with love for the middle Standish sister, and he assumes he will spend his dying breath still wishing she were his.
But fortune changes for the Sullivan family. With new attention from the crown and past family secrets revealed, a path opens that just might mean happiness for Lucy and Conor. But will they be bold enough to seize the opportunity when it comes?
The books in the Lords for the Sisters of Sussex series just keep getting better and better! I think that Lucy’s story might be my favorite. But… I know there are more books coming. So, who knows which book will end up my overall favorite.
There were so many things I loved about Lucy. I loved that she is a proper miss. She wants to marry a duke. But she isn’t really after the status. She just wants her sisters lives to be better. I think that’s kind of natural after what she and her sisters had been in society before they were taken care of by the Earl that married Jane. But Lucy learns as she goes along that not everything is as it seems. And sometimes the dream you have isn’t as good as your reality. I loved that about her. It’s a lesson we all have to learn at some time or another.
I really liked Conor too. He’s the groom at Lucy’s family’s stables. And he’s always watching out for Lucy. There were so many parts to this that I loved. I loved the mystery of Conor’s family. And how Lucy’s family were still unraveling their own family history mystery. And I loved the way Conor and his father weren’t going to sit idly by. They worked to make their own fortune better than what it was.
This is a great book! There’s a great scene near the end with a carriage that was my very favorite. I can’t wait to see what author Jen Geigle Johnson comes up with next!
I was sent an e-copy of Suitors for the Proper Miss as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
