Book 14

Book 14:  When the Marquess Met His Match:  An American Heiress in London by Laura Lee Guhrke

I  did not loooove this book, but it was a fun way to while the time between loads of laundry.  The hero is kind of  a big baby with his Daddy issues and his lack of funds.  The heroine is a matchmaker who specializes in helping American heiresses trade huge dowries for titled marriages.  Her own marriage was a rather sad affair, but at least her husband had the courtesy to die.  She sort of throws herself on the grenade here to keep the hero from chasing a really sweet girl who deserves better than the utter rake and despoiler she initially believes the hero to be.

Without being too spoilery, didn't I just read another historical that prominently featured beer brewing?  Is that the new thing in historicals?  Are hops really that sexy?

***pause for light googling****

I did! A Hellion In Her Bed by Sabrina Jeffries features a rival brewer and brewster! And relatives holding the purse strings over the hero's head.

I think I read, maybe a couple years ago, yet another historical where the hero from penniless nobility married an heiress whose father was a brewer.
