"Witty and delightful!"

Tall, bookish, and far too smart, Miss Cassandra Holwell has
known as one of the "spinster heiresses," a trio of wealthy
who are all on the market to marry into the aristocracy to
bring a title
into their families, but who are all on the verge of being
the shelf." Invited to a house party, Cassandra is
determined to finally
make a connection with the handsome Duke of Camberley... but
Soren York, Earl of Dewsberry, and her family's sworn enemy,
seems to be running into at every turn instead. Overly
unusually handsome, and one of the only men taller than her,
Cassandra can't help but find herself intrigued with Soren
unique outlook on the world.
Dangerously close to losing everything, Soren is desperate
well to save his family from ruin after years away in the
wilderness trying to make it as a soldier and then again as
a trader. His
father was less than prudent with finances and his mother
the best of the best. Marrying an heiress is Soren's only
option and it
needs to happen fast. While their families have never gotten

A cute and easy historical romance, A MATCH MADE IN BED by
Cathy Maxwell is witty and delightful. Cassandra is an
interesting heroine with modern ideas, which makes
her relatable and someone you want to see succeed. Soren is
hero--not too macho, but not a pushover by any means. Once he
decides what he wants, he is determined to get it, including

while it may have been a historically accurate portrayal of
Native Americans, this element of the story was introduced
later in the
book and came across as an attempt to add yet another
conflict to the
book, that just didn't sit well within the rest of the plot.
however, the second book in the Spinster Heiresses series is an
enjoyable read. I recommend it to historical romance fans.
Once upon a time there were three young ladies, who,
despite their fortunes, had been on the marriage mart a bit
too long. They were known as “the Spinster Heiresses”…
Miss Cassandra Howell is too tall, too bookish, and too
smart—but she does have money and a father who wants a grand
title for her. Cassandra hasn’t felt a desire to marry until
she meets the sinfully handsome Duke of Camberly, who
captures her imagination…until Soren York, Earl of
Dewsberry, and her family’s sworn enemy steps in the way.
The Holwells ruined Soren’s family, and he’s lived on the
knife’s edge trying to resurrect their fortunes . . . until
he considers marrying the Holwell Heiress. Not only would
her dowry give him the funds he needs, he has secretly had
an eye on the independent-minded bluestocking since they
both first realized the differences between men and women.
She likes to read; he has no patience for books. She knows
little of sex; he is a man of the world and willing to
school her. Her family destroyed his; his offer of marriage
may be her only salvation.
Now Cassandra and Soren must learn to love each other for
who they are, not what they are—and the lessons are
becoming an exercise in absolute pleasure.
