Gentleman Seeks Bride – Megan Frampton – ✨Review✨ 4.5/5 stars – Pub. 11/30/21
Book 4 in the “Hazards of Dukes” series. This is my first book by this author, and WOW, she hit this out of the ballpark — I loved it!
In a role reversal, our hero Thomas Sharpe, travels to London in search of a wealthy bride, -there’s high stakes involved, as he needs to find an heiress quick to save his family after his father lost all their money on investments. Thomas Sharpe is tall, handsome and excelled at everything, so how hard could it be to find a bride? Well, due to his reputation as a charming rake, after two years, he’s no closer to finding someone that will commit.
Lady Jane Capel and Thomas cross paths at Miss Ivys gambling club. Thomas is her brothers best friend. Jane promises to help Thomas on his heiress hunt, and in exchange, he will teach her about the world (thats off limits to her), and the ins and outs of intimacy.
Unfortunately, Jane was disowned by her parents, and their money, so she’s not a suitable pick for Thomas. Yet both have a strong physical attraction to one another, and are eager for something more. Thomas and Jane’s not-so-innocent kisses, touches, and longing turn into what each were looking for all along — love. It’s a FUN and VERY SPICY romance, where Jane and Thomas finally question themselves; -if they had their own choices to make, would they marry someone for money or love?
