Baker & Taylor
In Regency England, four orphaned sisters become wards of an earl, but when Tess, the eldest sister, tries to arrange matches for her sisters, things take a turn which make it almost impossible to avoid a scandal.


When you're the oldest daughter, you don't get to have any fun!

Witty, orphaned Tess Essex faces her duty: marry well and marry quickly, so she can arrange matches for her three sisters -- beautiful Annabel, romantic Imogen and practical Josie. After all, right now they're under the rather awkward guardianship of the perpetually tipsy Duke of Holbrook. But just when she begins to think that all might end well, one of her sisters bolts with a horse-mad young lord, and her own fiancé just plain runs away.

Which leaves Tess contemplating marriage to the sort of man she wishes to avoid -- one of London's most infamous rakes. Lucius Felton is a rogue whose own mother considers him irredeemable! He's delicious, Annabel points out. And he's rich, Josie notes. But although Tess finally consents to marry him, it may be for the worst reason of all. Absurd as she knows it to be, she may have fallen utterly in love . . .

& Taylor

The oldest of four orphaned sisters, Tess Essex knows that it is her duty to marry quickly in order arrange matches for her three younger sisters, but her plans are threatened when her fiancé runs away, one of her sisters elopes, and she is confronted by a reluctant wedding to the irredeemable rogue, Lucis Felton.

If you want to indulge in the guilty pleasure of a regency romance without feeling like you've been sucked into an intellectual vacuum, Eloisa James is a good choice. She's a Shakespeare prof under a different name, so her character-driven books usually contain some tidbit about the bard (here a character tries to avoid marriage by spouting obnoxiously learned Shakespeare quotes at her fiance). Much Ado About You includes a lovely poem by Catullus (!) as well.

I don't typically read romance novels but I started reading this one because I had bought it on sale from Chapters. It turned out to be a really great read. The characters were all unique and interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
