Series: Duchess of Love #1
Pages: 325

It all started with a silky pair or red knickers. Ellie knows they are scandalous and no one expects that from the very proper spinsterish Miss Ellie Bowman, but she has them anyway. Unfortunately a very mischievous cat keeps finding them and bringing them to his master, the man Ellie has been in love with since she was a child, Lord Edward, Ned. Seeing Ellie’s scandalous bloomers has had an odd effect on Ned, he can’t help imagining her in them…and nothing else. But he tries to push these thoughts out of his head and concentrate on finding himself a wife, after all he loves Ellie as a close friend would…right?I really enjoyed this book, it contained two things that is almost always guaranteed to make me like a book, a plain Jane heroine and humour. The humour was helped along by a very naughty cat named Sir Reginald and a pair of red silk bloomers two very unusual but entertaining plot devices.

The romance in this is fun and a little sneaky with Ned’s mother a famous matchmaker nicknamed the Duchess of Love tries to pair of all the guests in her house party, especially Ned, her middle son, and Ellie. Although it was a little slow as Ned’s thick male mind takes a while to realize that Ellie may be the woman for him, it was still entertaining to read, especially as there were a few secondary romances going on as well.

I would recommend this book, the characters were all very likable, the romance was sweet and it made me laugh. I know can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
