Certainly she is not opposed to love, in fact, she is quite skilled in the art of matchmaking for her sisters and cousins. But what man would ever
want to wed such a contrary miss as herselfa dedicated bluestocking who would rather debate politics than dance; who prefers the company of books over
simpering husband-hungry females?
A Confirmed Bachelor
Lord Everhart had nothing in mind but a scheme of mutual convenience when he first set eyes on the sprite of a girl whose quick intelligence belied her
youthful appearance. Though Georgi is not concerned with the ways of the ton, she happily agrees to help him foil the scheming ape leaders determined to see him wed. While their sham courtship raises eyebrows, no one is more stunned than his lordship when he realizes that somewhere in this charade, he has completely lost his heart. Now, he must persuade Georgi to do the same...

The synopsis on the back of the book is not quite accurate. It must have been written by someone who did not read the book. Maybe they read the author's preliminary "ideas" for the story? For instance, Georgi writes novels, not poetry. There is one female cousin and two male cousins all single, but I don't remember any mention of sisters - let alone ones Georgi helped "match". There is some matchmaking in this by Georgi, but she has quite a bit of help in it. There is no mention of other couples she has matched (that I remember).
All that aside, it is a fun story. It reads like many by this author. A lot of intertwined characters and a story that builds and then falls together quickly once all the bits are in place finally.
