After a wild night of partying at Eversleigh Manor, Guy Portias finds himself engaged to Richenda Fox, the hot new TV star in England. Guy isn't quite sure if he's ready to be engaged, or if he's even in love with Richenda, but he knows she will be able to help him keep Eversleigh Manor, his ancestral home, financed and help him with repair costs. Plus, he does care for her. She's a lot of fun and has a sweet personality. Guy's just not sure if he's suited to her famous lifestyle. He's definitely more of a homebody; comfortable in jeans and t-shirts, not the fancy clothing necessary for the life Richenda leads. In fact, Guy gets along quite well with Honor McLean, the woman Guy's mother has hired to help them out with the country weekends Eversleigh sponsors.


Honor is a single mom raising her young son, Ted. She's dedicated to him, loves him with every fiber of her being, and though she gets lonely sometimes, she's satisfied with her quaint and quiet life, making cakes and working craft fairs. When she gets the chance to cater the weekend parties at Eversleigh, Honor knows that this is a fantastic opportunity she can't pass up. Unfortunately, it comes at the same time as her personal life is getting more complicated. Her ex-boyfriend, Ted's father, has just walked back into her life and he's determined to get to know Ted. Add to that the complex of emotions Guy seems to bring up in her, and Honor is aflutter. What's a girl to do when the right guy finally comes along, but it's at the very wrong time?

 

AN ELIGIBLE BACHELOR reads like a cheeky and romantic English soap opera. Besides Guy, Honor, and Richenda, there is a cast of secondary characters that add some intriguing and amusing subplots to this story. Guy and Honor have some great chemistry but it's complicated by the addition of Richenda, a woman who is not the cliched evil fiancee or some two-dimensional character just used to bring together the hero and heroine. She actually has some other key points in this story that help to develop her character. I didn't always like her, but I think I was awed by what she had gone through. Guy and Honor's story is a twisty, developing love story that will make you wonder, are these two destined to be together? Veronica Henry has penned a clear and delightful story of the opportunities and personalities life has a tendency to throw at us when we least expect it. AN ELIGIBLE BACHELOR is romantic, sweet, and a flirtatious gossip of a story.
