About Bargaining for the Barrister

Bargaining for the Barrister

Louisa Cox is tired of fortune hunters pursuing her dowry. So when Lady Kellen offers to help her find an eligible suitor, Louisa eagerly accepts and makes a list of what she wants in a husband. The man selected is barrister Paul Sheldon. He may be a complete stranger, but he has one thing in his favor: he is unaware of her fortune. What Louisa did not anticipate was his curious behavior—or being so attracted to him.

When Paul catches wind of the matchmaking organization his mother and her friends are establishing, he pities the fellow who will be caught in their scheme—until he realizes he is to be their first victim. Horrified, Paul determines to thwart his mother’s plans by whatever means necessary. After meeting his intended, however, his increasing desire to be near her threatens to disrupt his convictions. Louisa is everything he could want in a wife, and when an unexpected adventure sets in motion the very plan he had determined to halt, he almost wishes his mother’s plot could succeed. But Paul harbors a secret and a past that make it impossible for him to give Louisa the life she deserves.

My review

This book is the start of a fun sounding new series. I loved the Matchmaking Mamas in this one. And I can’t wait to read more books featuring them! And I really hope we get to see more of the Rebels as well.

I loved the way Paul had a secret that even the reader doesn’t understand completely until the very end of the book. Paul is an honorable gentleman. He doesn’t want to take anyone’s money, but make his own way as a barrister. Even if that is hard and leaves him very little money. I loved that about him.

Louisa’s family has money. She was left as an orphan. And now she can’t seem to get rid of men who just want her for her dowry. So she decides to have the Matchmaking Mamas find her a husband. And that man is supposed to be Paul. Unfortunately, he’s on to the Mamas. And he wants nothing to do with their schemes. Until he can afford to support a wife, he won’t marry.

I loved the way these two meet. It was so funny! And they always seem to get into crazy situations together. That keeps the plot interesting and the reader wanting to know what these two will do next. Add in Paul’s friends, the Rebels, and a few extra suitors, and you’ve got tons of hilarious situations.

You need to read this one! I can’t wait for more.
