READ AND REVIEW
TO CATCH A LADY (HUNT CLUB #1) BY PAMELA LABUD
Release Date: January 19, 2016
Ashton Blakely, the Duke of Summerton, cannot stop his aunt from meddling in his affairs. So rather than let her select a most disagreeable mate, Ashton decides to fire the first volley by holding a ball as a scheme to bag the ideal wife: a deferential girl eager to produce and raise an heir, leaving Ashton to his beloved hunting lodge and titled friends. But when Ashton falls for the one woman who isn’t willing to play his game, all his plans scatter like buckshot. Suddenly, the chase is on!
Caroline Hawkins has no interest in marriage. In fact, she has devoted her life to defending women from the indignities visited upon them by their husbands. She only chaperones her beautiful younger sister to Summerton’s ball in the hopes of saving her family from bankruptcy. She certainly doesn’t expect to catch the Duke’s eye . . . nor is she prepared for the heat that rises every time she thinks of his powerful build or his dark, tantalizing gaze. Caroline can run, but she cannot hide—for Ashton has already captured her heart.
REVIEW: TO CATCH A LADY (HUNT CLUB #1) BY PAMELA LABUD
To Catch a Lady by Pamela Labud
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I am a regular reader of romance. Enjoy reading contemporary and historical but my personal preference has always been historical. The spectacular parties where anything can happen, the chance of finding adventure and romance around every corner. The breathtaking characters that are shrouded in mystery or desperation. I just loved it. I received an ARC of To Catch a Lady in exchange for an honest review.
Caroline is the type of character I love to read about. She is not worried about what her peers think of her but, she wants to make a difference in the world. Ashton is a charmer that has the looks, title and the obligations of a nobleman but prefers a more carefree existence. The makeup of this story reminded me so much of the Catherine Maxwell stories I used to read as a teen. Ashton and Caroline's transformation into a couple was a little bit frustration, a little wicked but a whole lot of marvelous.
