The second book tells the story of David Radley and another of Lucy Radley’s friends Miss Clarice Langham . Now this is a love saga and they have been hiding their affections for each other for a number of years. However certain events in Letter from a Rake forced them to come out to each other and this book continues right where the first book left off. I loved that certain event in Letter from a Rake and I hoped that magic would be continued in this book. I wasn’t disappointed with this book and the author delivered another enchanting regency romance that I loved .
We knew that they loved each other but why couldn’t they be together was the unasked question and I knew that there had to be story told as the author wouldn’t pass an opportunity up to tell it. An Unsuitable Match answer that question and provides a delightful story as these two try to find a way to be together.
Like the first book we watch these two as they try to stay away from their mutual attraction and are championed by Lucy Randley and the rest of the Radley clan but instead of conflict we have a determined father and nefarious villain determined to set the couple in their places. Lucy may been the character to love in the first book but I think that was over take by Clarice’s grandmother Lady Alice who could put Lucy to shame with her own devious mind and determined to see that Clarice gets her happily ever after.
This book was totally different from the last one in terms of the story and the lead characters not as appealing as the previous book because of their secrets and the ton. I loved how the author deliberate did that to add to the story and made them slowly grow on us so that we are rooting for them by time everything comes crashing together.
4.5 stars and I can’t wait for Lucy’s story, with a mischievous mind and taken to matchmaking what going to happen when it seems that she has found the perfect guy for herself.

I have had Letter From a Rake sitting on my IPad for a while and I thought it about time I read it in preparation for An Unsuitable Match. The series revolves around the Duke of Strathmore’s family and friends as his oldest children seek love. I devoured this book and the second book in one day because of the easily writing style, the straight forward plot in both of these books and the characters you want to hate but instead love
This book tells the story of Alex ‘Alex the Great’ Radley and Mille Aston who first meeting sets of a running conflict between the two. Both intelligent creatures , the hero realises he needs to set things right with the lovely Miss Ashton and set on a journey of bumbling mistakes that lead to a disastrous situation.
The plot is so simple but the author weaves her magic with her writing style and creating characters that are appealing to us readers and who don’t fit the typical hero or heroine we have come to expect in historical regency romances. It takes the story too the next level and makes it a standout for me. My particular favourite aside from the heroine was the delightful Lucy Radley who was determined to see her new friend and brother happy. She maybe a young woman seeking a suitable husband but this lady got a mischievous streak that seems so out of place that I love .
I only wished I read this sooner, as the author has a heroine that I enjoyed so much for her quirkiness and strong will nature. I loved the influence of childhood home in her appearance and that the hero loved it as well. Despite his reputation as a rake, I think this hero is a softy underneath it all. He was just waiting for the right woman and Millie Aston was that woman.
4.5 couples and I’m excited that this was her debut and that I had her next book ready to go when I finished it as there was about a year between these books and I’m curious to see if the magic continued.
