After reading the first book in this new connected world of the Lyon's Den I was excited to see who would be the next "victim" of the mysterious matchmaker, Mrs. Bessie Dove-Lyon. She ran the underground gaming house, THe Lyon's Den that catered to those looking for games of an unusual sort, and those willing to pay a good sum to marry well.
Lord Jason Glazebrook entered The Lyon's Den expecting hoping for a distraction. Much to his surprise, Dove-Lyon called him to her ladies room to introduce

Mrs. Bessie Dove-Lyon, a different kind of gambling establishment. Also Mrs. Dove-Lyon is matchmaking people who come to her. That is how Lord Jason Glazebrook met

Your past will catch up

Jason is still thought poorly of by Charles his brother the Duke as their relationship was strained Jason sought refuge in the Lyons Den! This is definitely an matchmaker place that is so not traditional! Mrs Lyon received a hefty fee for her services! No one is more surprised than Jason when he meets the shy beauty in a den of gamblers! Beverly has been instructed on exactly what to say to Jason to engage his interest! It's clear Beverly is uncomfortable with the decepti

Lord Jason Glazebrook has disappointed his brother by being sent down from Oxford. When he is summoned into the private drawing room of the notorious matchmaker Mrs Dove-Lyon he knows to be on guard. He has nothing to offer on the marriage mart,  and he's far too young to even think about it. 

Miss Beverly Crabtree has been dragged to the matchmaker in London to find a husband before the problem facing her father becomes known.  She doesn't like the idea of trapping someone.  

This is a sweet hist

It is truly amazing that the Lyon’s Den would have a matchmaker for the Society, owned by Mrs. Bessie Dove-Lyon, but she is known for running a strange gambling establishment, so why not. Her customers are families that come to her to avoid the season or if something is scandalous in the family. Miss Beverly Crabtree and her mother have enlisted her to help create a match with Lord Jason Glazebrook, the brother of a Duke. I loved the characters and the situations that surrounded their lives.

Good Ole Gramps

It was not tantalizing. Almost predictable. Reluctant to marry but as soon as their eyes meets they are seriously in love. Barf! No! Too mushy and unrealistic. In an attempt to wrap it up from the beginning, the author out very little in to character development. The only thing I learned about the lead female was she had brown hair and big boobs. I know the lead make had blue eyes and a athletic build. Way to enthrall your reader.

I enjoyed this book

I received a bit more information about the lyon's Den, this is the second in the series but information comes in bits and pieces. The book tells the story of Beverly and Jason, though young 18 to 23 they decide after meeting a few that they want there life together. There are obstacles in their path to happiness that must be overcome and we travel that journey with them.

Complications
Mrs. Dove-Lyon's matchmaking isn't going as smoothly this time around.
Lord Jason Glazebrook is unexpectedly introduced to Miss Beverly Crabtree. Jason knows right now is not a good time for marriage, especially with a black mark in his past. Beverly feels guilty keeping her secret from Jason of why she has to marry quickly. Even though they keep telling each other goodbye their hearts don't listen. Only her grandfather and his brother can make everything right. A charming romantic

Great prequel

I have been enjoying the Lyon's Den series, and was happy to discover this link to Ms. Andersen's new series. I read Never Doubt a Duke a short time ago,and look forward to her next book.
For a novella the plot and the characters are so well defined you don't feel that things are rushed. Beverly and Jason are a couple who's story you can't help but enjoy.

The Scandalous Lyon

Jason, the dukes brother meets Beverly at the behest of Mrs Dove-Lyon. He takes her out several times and they fall for one another. The story is excellent. Maggie Andreasen is a writer with a knack.

A quick look

Everything happened quickly in this book. It felt rushed and unreal. Tthere wasn't enough interaction between the main characters to justify a friendship never mind love. The most believable characters were Miss George and Mr. Parker. This will be my last Lyon book.

A delightful short story about a love that two people share but may never get their happy ending. All sorts of things conspire against Jason and Beverly but help comes in the most unexpected of places. Really enjoyable.

A nice enough tale!

This was a nice enough tale but I felt like the plot was a bit underdeveloped. The characters weren't as well fleshed out as I would have liked but I did appreciate the fact that there were no graphic sex scenes to wade through.
