Much to her mother’s dismay, spirited Anne Fletcher spent her youth seeking her father’s approval by hunting and riding. More comfortable in breeches than ball gowns, Anne sees the freedoms she once enjoyed slowly taken from her in the name of fashioning her into an eligible young lady. When her parents try to force her into marriage, Anne makes a desperate attempt to salvage her last vestige of independence. If she is to marry, she will do so on her own terms.
Anne strikes a deal: if she cannot secure a man for herself, she will agree to marry the husband her parents approved. She soon finds herself in the last place she would ever choose―that stifling parade of etiquette, the London Season. Anne’s plan is in motion. Now all she needs is a man willing to masquerade as her fiancé.
An Engagement of Sorts is not one of those stories where the characters just sit around waiting for things to happen.
There was laughter and tears, a villain to defeat, and a hoyden who found her knight disguised as a flirtatious dandy.
I always love when a story has a combination of funny moments and sweet moments. For a good laugh, the horse race wins hands down! There is also the sweetest love letter.
I loved Alene Wecker’s complex characters, interesting plot, and perfect pace to her story. Wecker is a debut author who I greatly look forward to hearing more from.
