Candace is an excellent author. I really am enjoying her books.
The Wedding Challenge is the third book in the series and the third book of hers that I have read.
I especially enjoy that I don’t have to read them as a series to get closure but by doing so I get to learn more about previous characters as they reappear in the story as friends or relatives. This particular book is about Calli, Lady Calandra Lilles, the Duke of Rockford’s sister and her endeavors to find a husband on her terms, not her grandmother or brothers’. She enlists the help of Lady Francesca Haughston a known matchmaker and dear family friend to help her.
The women immediately begin eliminating candidates for various reasons when Calli begins being called upon by a suitor that causes her and her brother’s blood to boil but not in the same way. Her brother’s anger isn’t uncalled for but she is a grown woman who must learn things on her own. Her brother fears that this lesson may ruin her.
This one kept me guessing right up until the end. At one point I only had a few chapters left and almost abandoned the book for fear it wouldn’t all get straightened out. In the end a satisfactory conclusion was reached and the realizations made by Lady Francesca toward the end of the book, I believe, will lead to a wonderful next book. I can’t wait and I recommend if you like a steamy romance that you read this one. It’s not a knock your socks off contemporary erotic romance, just a sweet historical romance with a girl falling in love with a boy and losing all morals.
