Publisher's Summary

Instant marchioness, instant mother, forever love?

Shy Ivy Bateman has always felt more comfortable behind the scenes than front and center. She is happiest caring for her family and baking sweet treats. She certainly never expected the wealthy Marquess of Kendall to propose marriage, especially a marriage of convenience. It seems his baby daughter needs a mother, and Ivy cannot deny the attraction of the role, or the attraction she feels for the handsome marquess.

Kendall had asked Miss Thorn of the Fortune Employment Agency to find him a particular sort of lady. His heart went to the grave with his first wife. Now, all he cares about is ensuring his frail daughter doesn’t follow it. Installing Ivy Bateman as his next marchioness will not disrupt his life or make him question his love for his dead wife. But as he comes to appreciate Ivy’s sweet nature, he begins to wonder about their future. When an old enemy strikes at Miss Thorn and all her ladies, a grieving lord and a shy lady must work together to save the day. In doing so, they might just discover that love, and a good cinnamon bun, can heal all wounds. 

If you like sweet, witty Regency romances, then you’ll love this triumphant finale of the Fortune’s Brides series by award-winning author Regina Scott.

Enjoy the series today. Only a matchmaking cat can hunt true love.

A wonderful ending to a great series:)

First of all, I liked all the books in the series a lot, like really a lot:) And I think this one is an excellent closure to the whole series - a story of love found where and when you don't expect it, with enough intrigue to give us a moment of uncertainty (although we know everything must come to a HEA - it's a historical romance, remember?:)) and the main characters who are warm, loving people we would like to meet and befriend...:) And yes, we finally see Miss Thorn find her hapiness as well - she definitely deserved it:)

Both Ivy and Kendall are wonderful main characters. She's sweet, warm, considerate and yet strong and ready to fight for those she loves; he is loyal, protective of those who depend on him and kind of strangely disarming in his fear for his daughter's safety:) The way Ivy charmes her way to Kendall's heart is wonderfully written and there's no surprise he falls for her so quickly...
The 'danger lurking in the background' part is also well done - we know it will finally be successfully dealt with, still, there are some moments of uncertainty as to how much harm it can cause in the meantime...

Narration by Ms Meiseberger is impeccable as ususal:) The whole series shines in her interpretations: there is warmth and elegance of the ladies in her voice and there is strength and nobility of character of the gentlemen... She just brings the world of the Ton, so wonderfully described by Ms Scott, to life - in the best possible way:)
