Description

Timothy Mayfield has nearly given up on his search for a wife. Though he is the picture of a fine, social gentleman, Timothy wishes his finances provided a more stable foundation. Then his Uncle Elliott presents to him a solution: participate in his "marriage campaign," and upon approval of his choice for a wife, Timothy's inheritance will be his.

Freed from the constraints of having to marry for money, Timothy is ready to marry for love instead. And he knows exactly what he wants in a wife: youth, optimism, beauty, blonde hair, fine-boned features, shapely shoulders, small waist, blue eyes, button nose, solid fashion sense, a light laugh, low voice, arched eyebrows, fair skin, elegant fingers, quick wit, calm manner, and a dazzling smile.

His friend, Maryann Morrington, an heiress in her own right, tells him outright that his expectations are ridiculous - no such woman exists. Maryann had considered Timothy as a potential suitor for a time, but then their relationship shifted to friendship, and she has avoided allowing herself to have feelings for him again.

She agrees to help him find his "perfect wife," because she's certain that the search will render nothing. Until it does. Miss Shaw appears to fulfill every single item on Timothy's list - unlike Maryann who has brown hair, brown eyes, lacks delicate features, and possesses a laugh that is definitely unladylike.

But when Timothy and Miss Shaw begin courting, Timothy realizes something profound. He'd rather spend his time with Maryann. But can he trust his judgment when his heart has led him wrong so many times before?

It is only when Maryann leaves the London season early, that Timothy realizes that he had truly fallen in love with her and that his list of requirements were nothing but fantasy. If he hopes to build a strong relationship, Timothy must convince Maryann that she is the very woman he'd been looking for all along - before it is too late.

Giving Virtue A Voice is proud to recommend Daisies and Devotion

This latest book by Author Josi S. Kilpack is a novel I am proud to recommend to readers who enjoy the Regency romance genre.

I just finished reading this, and I am already on pins and needles for the next book in the series. Daisies and Devotion follows Primrose and Promises, which I also thoroughly enjoyed. Honestly, I thought it would be difficult to top P & P, but this story was equally great, perhaps, dare I say it, even better.

The first thing that grabbed me in this story was that it parallels a story from my own life, and Kilpack captured the emotions I experienced beautifully. I love the way she writes her characters as strong, yet vulnerable, intelligent, yet humble, and lovable, yet flawed. In short, they are real and relatable.

Another aspect I wholly appreciate is that, as with Primrose and Promises, Daisies and Devotion does not follow the traditional pattern so common in Regency romances, which may be one of many reasons that the plot is so moving and memorable. This book is fresh, fun, and captivating. Readers will care deeply about the characters, and will not want the story to end.

For all you regency romance fans who appreciate clean and compelling entertainment, this book will not disappoint. I wholeheartedly recommend that you put Daisies and Devotion on your “to read” list.

Happy reading :-)
