Timothy Mayfield is ready to marry for love, but since his personal finances are thinner than he’d like, he knows he’ll also need a wife with wealth. After receiving an unexpected inheritance, Timothy’s circumstances change, and he is free to pursue his perfect woman—one with blonde hair, blue eyes, a light laugh, arched eyebrows, elegant fingers, and a dazzling smile, among nearly twenty other characteristics.

Maryann Morrington doesn’t match anything on Timothy’s list except for wealth. An heiress in her own right, she is tired of men pursuing her only for her money. But at nearly twenty-two years old, and not a particularly stunning beauty, she can’t be as picky as her friend Timothy is.

The two friends end up playing matchmaker for each other. Timothy will find a decent gentleman for Maryann, and Maryann will prove to Timothy that his perfect woman doesn’t exist.

Until Miss Shaw comes to London.

Now, with Timothy’s heart captivated by the blonde, blue-eyed beauty, Maryann must decide if she should risk her heart and reveal her true feelings for her friend, or if she should settle for someone else. It’s an up-and-down game of he loves me, he loves me not, with both hearts and friendships on the line.

    This was a different kind of plot which made for nice variety in reading clean, regency romance. Maryann recognizes her feelings for Timothy but spends much of the time introducing him to other women. Timothy is a bit of a dunce in figuring out his true feelings and was rather mean on occasion. At one point I called him a jerk out loud because I was disgusted with his behavior but in the end, he was likable, just slow to figure it all out. I liked that in the end he was able to see where he stumbled and own his behavior. I also liked that each time he realized he was being a jerk he was quick to apologize.

    I liked that Maryann was forth coming with Timothy and able to speak her mind. Which kind of made me question her behavior at the end. She kind of half stated her thoughts and then hid away to protect her feelings instead of facing everything straight on. I guess she just couldn’t believe it could possibly to true.

    I had an unanswered question. Why bring up the discrepancies in household expenses and then never deal with it more? And the missing art etc? I thought it was leading into something and it didn’t go anywhere. Also, it was obvious to us that Maryann was exactly who Timothy needed to help run his estate but Timothy never found that out. It was another part of Maryann being the keeper of the books etc that never went anywhere. Was this set up for a coming book?

    Looking at this as part of the series, I found it interesting to see how each of the beneficiaries of the uncle’s generosity responded differently. It will be fun to see how the rest respond as the series goes on, especially the one cousin who is such a louse. He doesn’t seem very redeemable in this book.
