Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Briar Bourne's matchmaking career could be summed up in two words--comic disaster. Unless she can learn about the irresistible forces that draw men and women together, her professional future looks rather bleak. But Briar has an intriguing plan--enlisting London's most irredeemable rake to teach her everything he knows about attraction. Given his notorious reputation, it's no surprise that Nicholas Blacklowe, the Earl of Edgemont, requests one thing in exchange for his tutelage. For every lesson, he wants a kiss in return. And what harm could there be in a simple kiss? After all, Briar would never fall for a scoundrel... Nicholas has no romantic notions about love, and no intention of changing his ways. He's only helping Briar so that she can find the perfect bride for his jilted cousin. Yet Briar is so clever, so curious, so candid--so blasted tempting--that soon, Nicholas can't stop wondering what it might be like if he was irresistible to her. Ten lessons. Ten kisses. And a million ways to fall hopelessly, scandalously in love."

    All Briar Bourne wants is to prove to her family that she is perfectly capable of making a good match for one of their clients. However, Briar's first attempt at playing Cupid results in a romantic disaster. Rather than going back to filing paperwork and serving tea at the Bourne Matrimonial Agency, Briar decides to play professional matchmaker one more time, but she also calls on the notorious rake Nicholas Blacklowe, the Earl of Edgemont, asking him to teach her everything he knows about the art of attraction. In exchange for his help, Nicholas insists on receiving one kiss from Briar for every one of his lessons. As far as Briar is concerned, it's nothing to worry about, because no one falls in love with someone after just a kiss, right? Following How to Forget a Duke (2018), Lorret continues with her marvelously fun Misadventures in Matchmaking series, which gives a graceful nod to Jane Austen's classic Emma, with another sparkling Regency romance that deftly marries buoyant wit with luscious sensuality.
