Jac (welcometothemaddness) Okay so my friend doesn't have a goodreads so I am doing this for her. I tried to find this book for her but I cannot. She doesn't know the title or what the over looks like. What she does know I will post below and there might be some spoilers in there so be warned.

- Published before 2004. Probably a couple of decades old because it had been translated to spanish.

- Possibly set in France, I vaguely recall the hero’s name being french.

- Hero owns a castle, place where the book takes place. Hero is nobility or has noble lineage. I think he has dark hair.

- Hero’s family uses a family-matchmaker with an actual gift for picking the perfect spouse.

- Hero makes list of qualities he wants in a wife to send to the matchmaker dude who is already out in the world looking for a wife for the hero.

- Hero has a trickster ancestor, who might have had some magical powers, whose painting hangs in the castle. It is alluded to/told to us that the ancestor messed with the list from beyond the grave.

- Matchmaker returns with a stubborn redhead woman. What was the first item on the hero’s original list? NO REDHEADS, of course.

- Probably hero and heroine didn’t get along.

- I think the hero marries heroine anyway, reluctantly.

- They have sex for the first time on the side of a hill, overlooking the castle, after a horse ride.

- They get a HEA, of course.

- The whole book, the matchmaker was worried cause he was old and needed to find his successor before he died. At the very end of the book he realizes a girl toddler/baby possesses his same gifts and he’s amazed because she would be the first female matchmaker.

You're welcome. The details you provided were great. Be sure to let the mods know this is SOLVED so they can move it to the proper folder.
