A Suitable Match

(The second book in the Marstone series)
A novel by


Both are seeking a suitable match. Just not with each other.

England 1782

Lady Isabella is bound for London, in search of a husband. While excited at being free of her father’s ruthless control, her joy is overshadowed by knowing her aunt will arrange a match that will benefit her father. His requirements are for a title and influence—not the things a young girl dreams of.

All is not lost. Bella is no stranger to subterfuge, and she knows her brother will help her avoid an unwelcome union. But when he is called away on urgent business he asks Nick Carterton to stand in for him.

Nick, a reserved scholar who relishes the quiet life, has avoided marriage for years but is finally giving in to his father’s request he seek out a bride.

Keeping a headstrong miss in check is not the way he’d choose to spend his time. Instead of looking for a wife, he finds himself accompanying Bella on a series of escapades around the city. Meanwhile, Bella’s eye lights on a totally unsuitable young man. It seems neither is set for matrimony any time soon.

A more than suitable match is right in front of them… if only they could see it.

A Suitable Match is Book 2 in the Marstone series, but can also be read as a standalone novel with no cliffhangers.
