From The Book Junkie Reads . . . Lord Bachelor . . .
A cross between historic regency romance and contemporary reality present.  Fairy tales can live in the presents of contemporary American. When English nobility meets American commonwealth.  Reality TV brings more forms of classes together and then there was the reality of what they got into.

I found it to b cleaver way to bring historical classic and fairy tales to the fore ground in modern contemporary times. I had a bit of Jane Austen and some of Cinderella, but it gave more of the current reality tv of today. All these worlds came together in the contemporary romance of the new adult era. 

Edumund was tasked with carry out the task of becoming a wedded adult in order to inherit the vast family fortune. He was not just to wed anyone. He had to marry a woman of wealth of her own. This was the combining of two family with wealth. Historical Regency England.

Abby was as common as they come with it comes to women in America. She meets and finds her prince charming, but he has some issue of his own. The least of them being needed a wealthy wife. As things progress they begin to fine more and more common ground, but Abby finds out something she was not meant to know. She makes a decision. Right or Wrong? Its done. 

I get me a delightful read that gives me some of the better part of romance novels that I love. I will be returning to this read again.

He smiled. “Just say thank you, and we’ll call it even.”

For a long moment, she stared at him, mouth agape, not sure if this was some sort of British humor she didn’t understand. Well, she supposed it didn’t cost her anything to give him what he wanted. “Thank you.”

His smile widened. “I thought American girls were all about, uhm,” he paused, his gaze sliding to her slightly parted lips, “…affectionate forms of appreciation.”

Abby exhaled. Did he really expect her to kiss him? Well, she wasn’t going to, no matter how many times her gaze wandered to his mouth. “I don’t know you, and you certainly don’t know me, Mr. —”

“Lord,” he corrected her with the slightest conceited bow. “Lord Rushwood.”
She resisted the urge to roll her eyes. “Pardon me. Lord Rushwood.”
“You may still call me Edmund.”

This time she brought her hands to her face, ready to let out a frustrated scream. He didn’t move as she parted her fingers and peeked through them. Growing more annoyed, she dropped her hands to her sides and squared her shoulders.

"I have thanked you…Edmund, so I will not be wrapping my arms around your neck and inviting you up for a night of, whatever you call it in England—”

“Rogering? Shagging?”

She closed her eyes and brought in a therapeutic breath. “Never mind,” she replied, trying to extinguish the blush spreading like a wildfire into her face.
