Matthew Monfort has two excellent reasons for loathing members of the ton, but thanks to his father's machinations he finds himself inveigled into offering for Lady Verity Tristan. Anyway it's time he married and she's...well, she's different; in fact she's quite delightful...and intelligent...and sweet...but she needn't think she's going to win him over....

Mr. Monfort's Marriage Reviews
I've given Mr Monfort's Marriage two stars as that is rated as 'okay' on the Goodreads scale. I didn't really know where this story was going; there just didn't seem enough substance to it. At first I was annoyed with Matthew that he based his opinions on just two incidents in his life connected with the nobility (although serious incidents) and I was pleased he redeemed himself when he met Verity.But I'm afraid I'm one of those readers who grimace if facts are not quite correct. For example, Verity's parents are the Earl and Countess of Alun, therefore they would be referred to as Lord and Lady Alun, not Lord and Lady Tristan (their family name). Matthew's mother said she was the daughter of a viscount and therefore Lady (full name). Actually she would be known as The Honourable (full name), with the simple title of Miss. And I was confused that Matthew received news that he was to receive a knighthood making him Sir Matthew Monfort, but ended up getting a peerage. I'm not sure if he would have been entitled to join the nobility and why did the Prince of Wales change his mind about the title?I'm sorry I notice these facts, but as they say, the devil is in the detail and that's what makes the story for me, especially in historical romances.
Nice story; a little bit different from the usual Regency plots. Will read more by this author.
