An expert at winning a woman's hand. A woman who cannot be won.
Lord Featherstone has the world on his shoulders. Or at least his world. With two brothers and
a failing estate he must make funds somehow. But what happens when he falls for a woman?
Will his tactics work when the situation is so close and personal?
Everyone thinks Lady Loveluck is a wealthy widow. What they don't know is that she is on the
brink of hiring herself out as a Governess in order to pay for her next meal. The only thing
keeping her from employment is a growing reputation as a matchmaker. As long as she never
falls for another man, as long as she doesn't allow herself to be fooled into marrying, she will
be just fine.
But she never counted on being caught up in the beguiling tactics of London's renowned and
not so secret matchmaker for men.
My thoughts: Have you read a book by Jen Geigle Johnson? If not, why?
To Win Her Hand has the elements that I love in a Regency romance. I love banter. It is definitely one of my favorites. This book definitely has that. I love likable and relatable characters. I love a good story with excellent pacing. All of the above are found in the pages of this novel.
A male and a female matchmaker make a friendly wager. They both have a client, the one who makes the first match wins. The stakes are high, the loser has to move from London and establish themselves in Bath.
The matchmakers have finally met their match. I loved this story.

About the Author: Jen Geigle Johnson is an award-winning author, including the GOLD in Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards and LDSPMA Praiseworthy's top award for Romance,
Jen has more stories circulating in her brain than can possibly be told. She discovered her passion for England while kayaking on the Thames near London as a young teenager. History is her main jam. Her literary heroes include the greats: Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. But she has modern sensibilities as well.
Six children and an inspiring husband keep her going and make certain she doesn't stay glued to a keyboard or lost in obscure fascinating details of old castles.
Now, she loves to share bits of history that might otherwise be forgotten. Whether in Regency England, the French Revolution, or Colonial America, her romance novels are much like life is supposed to be: full of adventure.
