I loved this so much. A sweet, gentle, good-natured Regency romance with all the elements I enjoy about the genre. ( )
  AngeH | Jan 2, 2020 |
Ethan Brundy, a wealthy mill owner, sees Lady Helen and knows he has found the woman he will marry. Lady Helen, a haughty, sharp-tongued woman, has no interest in marriage just yet, though her father's gambling debts make it close than she knows. Ethan will have his work cut out for him to win the heart of his bride.

This was an absolutely lovely book! I don't usually care for insta-love, where one person immediately falls in love in the first sight. This, however, was a fun read. I liked that even though Ethan falls in love with Helen, he knows it will take time for Helen to fall in love with him. And he is willing to give her that time.

There is an antagonist who is flimsy in motivation and hardly worth mentioning. The plot is simple and straightforward. It was a perfect afternoon read.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light read. ( )

Really enjoyed this one. Lady Helen is a great beauty with a sharp tongue and has yet found a man worthy to marry. Her father, the Duke, has racked up a lot of debts and puts an ultimatimum to her that she must marry the met Mr. Brundy, the wealthy tradesman, or find a job as a governess or companion. She is appalled but goes through with the wedding after being promised wealth, and 6 months of getting to know one another without sex. Friendship builds as she sees his character and compares him to men of the "ton" and realizes as she slowly falls in love with him that she won the prize. ( )

I really didn't like the idea of buying an unwilling and probably unsuitable wife just because you can. Nor did I find anything convincing about the way the plot worked out. ( )

A Myrt's Review

The Weaver Takes a Wife by Sheri Cobb South

Killing Her With Kindness

Lady Helen Radney is one of the most beautiful women of the ton, her father is a duke from a long lineage, so she should be the most desirable candidate for the Marriage Mart. Unfortunately, Lady Helen has a caustic personality that would give a fishwife pause. Her haughty, unpleasant manner coupled with the fact her father has bankrupted their estate with his excessive gambling has left her with few willing suitors. Lady Helen is not particularly bothered since she considers herself too good for most of her potential suitors and has no problem letting them know this. Her father is less comfortable with the situation as he is counting on his daughter to marry a wealthy man who can cover his debts.

Ethan Brundy is a former workhouse orphan who is now the owner of a textile mill and is one of the wealthiest men in the country. It is love at first sight for Mr. Brundy when he sees Lady Helen at the theatre and determines to make her his wife. Ethan is a kind, gentle man who, despite his harsh childhood remains optimistic and good natured. He also knows nothing, nor cares for Society graces and etiquette which is immediately apparent in his speech as there isn't an 'haitch' sound he doesn't drop which really doesn't help him make his case to 'Lady 'elen'.

Helen wants nothing to do with a rube like Ethan who makes his money in Trade! (Gasp.) Unfortunately for the lady, her father only sees Ethan's overflowing bank account and promptly upon hearing Mr. Brundy's proposal for his daughter can't get the protesting Helen down the aisle and married off to Mr. Brundy fast enough.

Helen lets Ethan know from the start their marriage is a financial arrangement by her bankrupt father and if Ethan thinks he's getting a sweet loving wife to churn out babies while living out in the sticks, he'd best think again. Ethan surprises her by agreeing they don't know each other at all and he'll wait six months before consummating the marriage so they can get to know each other.

In a unique change from most romances, Ethan does not undergo a makeover, suddenly becoming the picture of the perfect gentleman. He wins Helen over with his straight forward, open and honest manner. Quite a change from the ways of the Polite Society. Lady Helen struggles with her arrogance and snobbery as she begins, in spite of herself, to appreciate the integrity and intelligence of the man she married. She also finds herself drawn to the appeal of a man's man with strong hands!

The book is an enjoyable read with an unlikely couple who manage to overcome personal prejudices and society expectations to find their own happy ending. The banter and humor keeps the story light and the characters each develop and grow in a believable and delightful way. This is a terrific Regency romance that looks at a love built despite Society's rigid views.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. ( )
