Falling in love with her sister’s suitor had never been part of her plan.
After losing her parents, Elizabeth Watts and her two sisters are taken under the care of their great-aunt, who has promised them her estate upon her death. From a young age, however, Elizabeth has learned not to expect to keep things that can be taken away. An unforeseen change in the will reveals that Elizabeth and her sisters may have the estate, but only if the eldest weds Dr. Luke Pembroke, their great-aunt’s beloved physician, who needs the estate just as desperately as they do.
Knowing her sister to be in love with another, Elizabeth is appalled when she begins courting Dr. Pembroke, intent to sacrifice her own happiness. Nothing if not determined, Elizabeth makes plans to sabotage the courtship. With her schemes underway, she quickly learns that her sister’s suitor is nothing if not clever—nothing except, perhaps, handsome, kind, and infuriatingly charming. When the feelings between them become impossible to ignore, Elizabeth discovers that love has a scheme all its own, and it might just be the most determined of all.
An Unwelcome Suitor is part of the ENTANGLED INHERITANCE series, a set of stand-alone regency romance novels. Look for the complete collection of stories by these incredible authors:
A Provision for Love by Heather Chapman
His Unexpected Heiress by Sally Britton
The Rivals of Rosennor Hall by Rebecca Connolly
An Unwelcome Suitor by Ashtyn Newbold
This is one of those times that I know authors would say, “sorry not sorry” because you stay up until 5AM reading their book all in one sitting.
I loved the witty banter between Elizabeth and Luke, and the mischief she got into was hilarious. There was a great chemistry between them, and they played off each other well.
On the serious side, this book also focused on being selfless and giving up someone you love because you were obligated to help your family. Your decisions do not only affect yourself.
I was worried with how things would wrap up in the end, but I was very happy with the outcome.
An Unwelcome Suitor is part of the Entangled Inheritance series. Each book is written by a different author and is a stand-alone.
