Title: The Unwanted Suitor | Author: Michelle Pennington | Pages: 132 | Genre: Regency Romance | Recommended Age: Young Adult and up

Book Description:

When Cornelia Greystock received a proposal from Sir James Hawkston, she couldn’t bear it. It had been inspired, she knew, from pity and remorse—not love. Unable to face him afterward, she leaped at an offer of employment from the Countess, Lady Du’Breven. Serving as her companion, Cornelia struggles to adjust to the change in her social status, but the hard work distracts her from her broken heart. That is, until the Countess decides to hold a summer house party at her family estate and invites Sir James.

Sir James has never recovered from his disappointment when Miss Greystock refused his proposal and then fled, according to her family, to live with an unheard-of aunt in Ireland. When he grudgingly accepts an invitation to Lady Du’Breven’s house party, however, he is astounded to find Miss Greystock there. One thing is certain—this time he’ll court her the way he always should have. He is almost certain she returns his feelings, but he must tread carefully. If she refuses his proposal a second time, it would not be gentlemanly to ask a third. As time grows short and she continues to hold him at arms-length, will he find a way to at last win her hand?

My Review:

The Unwanted Suitor is a fun whirlwind romance set in regency times. The characters are entertaining and the descriptions transport you back into that era. Sir James Hawkston and Miss Cornelia Greystock are neighbors and childhood friends. The story jumps right in where Cornelia is working as a companion to Lady Du'Breven after turning down an awful marriage proposal from James. She's loved him for years and is hurt by the words he chose when asking for her hand in marriage. We get glimpses of the kind of girl she was growing up through James' memories. He now has to find a way to convince her of his love, but she's got ideas of her own. There are matchmaking games on the go at Du'Breven's house party. Who will win in the end?
