ABOUT THIS BOOK
Pride meets prejudice - can love blossom?
Beautiful young widow Lady Eliza Wyndham is determined never to remarry after a disastrous first marriage. The undeniable attraction that fizzes between her and Major Nathaniel Overton terrifies her. She rejects his advances.
With his pride badly dented, Nat vows to forget Eliza until he finds her in danger from an old adversary of his army days. His protective instincts are stirred and he steps back into her life, but will Eliza be prepared to accept his help?
Everything you could possibly want in a Regency romance, A GOOD MATCH FOR THE MAJOR has it, and then some more for good measure.
After an abusive first marriage, Lady Eliza is determined to remain single and live a contented life alone. So when she meets her new neighbour she doesn't want to notice his handsome face or his pleasant personality when he isn't driving her crazy, that is. She makes it very clear that she wants nothing to do with him, even though deep down, Nathaniel Overton stirs something inside her that Eliza thought long dead.
Nat has worked hard to create the life he now has and while some will always look down on him, he will not let them bother him. But it hurts him when Eliza cuts him down especially when they were becoming friends. But when he discovers a dangerous plot involving Eliza, he will do whatever it takes to protect her and keep her safe. She may not want him but he wants her to be free and happy. As Eliza battles with herself and Nat battles to protect her, can they both find salve in each other's arms?
Romantic and dangerous, with excellent characters that feel like family, and a rich, historical setting, A GOOD MATCH FOR THE MAJOR by Josie Bonham is the perfect historical romance. There is never a dull moment in this story and I found myself really caring about Eliza and Nat, and wanting them to open up to each other and be honest about everything.
A GOOD MATCH FOR THE MAJOR is an excellent start to what is sure to be an exciting new series and I cannot wait for the next book from Josie Bonham.
Josie lives in the English midlands, surrounded by towns full of history such as Evesham, Stratford-Upon- Avon, Warwick and Worcester. Which is perhaps why her favourite reads are historical. Out of all the periods to choose from the Regency Era stirs her imagination the most.
The true Regency lasted from 1811 until 1820 but dates as wide as 1789 to 1837 have been included in the extended Regency period. For Josie the true flavour of this era emerges after the iniquitous hair powder tax of 1795, unsurprisingly, scuppered the fashion for hair powder almost overnight.
Josie has always dabbled in stories but it took the combined efforts of her sister and eldest niece to set her on the path to writing novels. Her Regency romances, with a dash of adventure and intrigue, are the result. Despite the 'help' of her cat who considers a writing session at the computer an invitation to demand attention.
