Publisher's Summary

Timothy Mayfield has nearly given up on his search for a wife. Though he is the picture of a fine, social gentleman, Timothy wishes his finances provided a more stable foundation. Then his Uncle Elliott presents to him a solution: participate in his "marriage campaign," and upon approval of his choice for a wife, Timothy's inheritance will be his.

Freed from the constraints of having to marry for money, Timothy is ready to marry for love instead. And he knows exactly what he wants in a wife: youth, optimism, beauty, blonde hair, fine-boned features, shapely shoulders, small waist, blue eyes, button nose, solid fashion sense, a light laugh, low voice, arched eyebrows, fair skin, elegant fingers, quick wit, calm manner, and a dazzling smile.

His friend, Maryann Morrington, an heiress in her own right, tells him outright that his expectations are ridiculous - no such woman exists. Maryann had considered Timothy as a potential suitor for a time, but then their relationship shifted to friendship, and she has avoided allowing herself to have feelings for him again.

She agrees to help him find his "perfect wife," because she's certain that the search will render nothing. Until it does. Miss Shaw appears to fulfill every single item on Timothy's list - unlike Maryann who has brown hair, brown eyes, lacks delicate features, and possesses a laugh that is definitely unladylike.

But when Timothy and Miss Shaw begin courting, Timothy realizes something profound. He'd rather spend his time with Maryann. But can he trust his judgment when his heart has led him wrong so many times before?

It is only when Maryann leaves the London season early, that Timothy realizes that he had truly fallen in love with her and that his list of requirements were nothing but fantasy. If he hopes to build a strong relationship, Timothy must convince Maryann that she is the very woman he'd been looking for all along - before it is too late.

Giving Virtue A Voice is proud to recommend Daisies and Devotion

This latest book by Author Josi S. Kilpack is a novel I am proud to recommend to readers who enjoy the Regency romance genre. I just finished reading this, and I am already on pins and needles for the next book in the series. Daisies and Devotion follows Primrose and Promises, which I also thoroughly enjoyed. Honestly, I thought it would be difficult to top P & P, but this story was equally great, perhaps, dare I say it, even better. The first thing that grabbed me in this story was that it parallels a story from my own life, and Kilpack captured the emotions I experienced beautifully. I love the way she writes her characters as strong, yet vulnerable, intelligent, yet humble, and lovable, yet flawed. In short, they are real and relatable. Another aspect I wholly appreciate is that, as with Primrose and Promises, Daisies and Devotion does not follow the traditional pattern so common in Regency romances, which may be one of many reasons that the plot is so moving and memorable. This book is fresh, fun, and captivating. Readers will care deeply about the characters, and will not want the story to end. For all you regency romance fans who appreciate clean and compelling entertainment, this book will not disappoint. I wholeheartedly recommend that you put Daisies and Devotion on your “to read” list. Happy reading :-)

Vain, Stubborn Cow

The heroine is obsessed with self hurt & pain. She wallows in self pity. She isn't enough and knows it! Give me a break. Lame.

Stupid

I had high hopes for this story. The female lead is led to believe the male lead is interested in courting her. I can’t even remember their names. But When he finds out that he’s inherited money he wants to find a woman that is so outlandishly perfect, it’s disgusting. The poor girl volunteers to help him find his ideal woman while harboring feelings for him. His character is unbelievable shallow. I couldn’t stand either of these characters and stopped listening after a few chapters.

I felt like the end left me hanging! Saint Maries, Idaho

I really like the characters and the story but was disappointed in the end. It felt like it just stopped. Josi Kilpack teamed up with Justine Eyre are one of my very favorite teams. I like Timothy’s character because he was willing to really look at himself and change. I also love the fact he wasn’t afraid to say “I am sorry and will you forgive me?” So lacking in today’s society. I also loved the fact that Maryanne embraced her laugh. Very good and I do recommend it.

Delightful Characters

The plot in this book in the series is a simple one and the book would grow tiresome if the characters were less delightful. Good read. PG13

I listen three times

the characters are very interesting and she provides enough depth to make you feel attached to both protagonists. it was interesting that Timothy was able to keep a positive public image in spite of his relatives. their problems could have been elaborated more to give a strong understanding of where he came from and how unusual it is in London to preserve one's reputation with sex relatives.

Charming!

This is a delightful story, that had me laughing in one moment, and then appreciating the depth of character in the next. The performance was so well done! Can’t wait to find more by both the author and the narrator.

Engaging and fun.

This is an entertaining story expertly read by Justine Eyre. I liked it better than the first installment of the series because the annoying second generation featured in the first story is, thankfully, missing here, and all characters in this book are likable or, at the very least, relatable. All in all - a very pleasant way to spend the time when in the mood for some light entertainment.
