Booklist Review

Eliza Merriweather has no intention of giving up her plans to study art in Italy for a husband, but her two great aunts, Letitia and Viola, are determined that their spinster lot in life will not befall their grandniece. Then Eliza meets Magnus MacKinnon, Lord Somerton, and sees the perfect solution to her dilemma. If Magnus will agree to pretend to court Eliza, thus distracting her lavender-loving, matchmaking great aunts, Eliza will help Magnus by compiling a list of potential wealthy brides, since Magnus must snare a rich woman if he is to save his family's estates. But Eliza couldn't have imagined that her two very determined great aunts would mistake a book of military strategy for a textbook on how to get engaged, or that she would fall in love with Magnus. With its delightfully original and beautifully matched protagonists, surfeit of amusing supporting characters, and clever, tartly humorous writing, Caskie's debut romance is witty and wonderful. --John Charles Copyright 2004 Booklist
