An Eligible Bachelor A Novel Author:Veronica Henry Welcome to Eversleigh—a small English village being invaded by celebrity, sex, and scandal! — Guy Portias, heir to Eversleigh Manor, has woken up with two problems: he has a wicked hangover, and he seems to have gotten himself engaged. His new fiancée, Richenda Fox, is the gorgeous star of the hottest new TV series in England, but is the en... more »igmatic beauty the right woman for him? To complicate matters, Eversleigh is badly in need of repairs, and the family fortune has run a bit dry. When Guy reluctantly agrees to let his mother run “Country House Weekends” at the manor, they hire Honor McLean, a bewitching single mother, to cater and help them deal with the chaos.
Warm and down to earth, Honor is nothing like Guy’s cool, career-obsessed fiancée. If Honor’s wit and charm have the same effect on others that they seem to have on Guy, she could end up saving Eversleigh on her own—and stealing Guy’s heart in the process.
With a cast of characters you’ll love (and a few you’ll love to hate), An Eligible Bachelor is a charming, sexy, and compulsively readable romp through the English countryside.
Very amusing, yet dealing with some dark elements. The author has made some good choices in how she treats her protagonists and antagonists. I liked it a lot and am looking for more Veronica Henry books to be released in the US.
I liked it enough to read more books from this author.
The only thing I really didn't care for was that the main characters were pushed into the background with all of the other secondary characters. To me they didn't really stand out in the story. I would have liked to read more about them.
