How to Married a Highlander by Katharine Ashe
Simple sum up of the story: Teresa has been nursing a crush on Duncan for 18 months. However, Mr. Waldon is breathing down her neck to get her accustom to being married to him. She has no desires on marrying Mr. Waldon cause he's a self-rightous vicar (I personally like prig). So, she comes with a hair-brain idea to get Eads to marry her, by proposing a wager that she could get all his sisters married in a month. By the way he has seven of them.
Sounds like I rush through that sum up, but simple. Anyways, I thought this novella was cute. It kind of reminded me of Emma in sum ways. Here's why: 1) We have Teresa trying to be a matchmaker, but she has better luck than Emma did. 2) We have a pompous vicar in Mr. Waldon who wanted to married Teresa like Mr. Elton wanted to married Emma. That's where the similarity end and it becomes it's own story. So, we have proud Duncan trying figure a way to make sure his sisters are taken care of. Then you have Teresa who would love to Duncan's wife. I love Teresa, because she's just so fun and imaginative. Duncan a big burly scotsman who loves his sisters to pieces. Then you have Teresa's crazy scheme to obtain her dreams.
Overall, a cute fun read. Who doesn't love a big burly scotsman, an imaginative young lady and hair-brain scheme? So, if you are looking for a cute quick read with an inappropriate wager, you might want to give How to Marry a Highlander a try.
