The Husband Campaign by Regina Scott

My review today is on the Love Inspired Historical Book The Husband Campaign, the third book of The Master Matchmakers Series. I enjoyed this book, I have always been drawn to books about marriages of convenience and this one was really cute. When I was young I use to read a lot of Emily
Loring and Glenna Finley books and they did such an awesome job on those stories. I loved those books, Oh Well, back to my review. I enjoyed the characters and the situations they found themselves in.

Lord John Hascot was once betrayed by his twin brother. He married the woman John loved. John bought a horse farm and bred horses and became a recluse. His brother soon died but that didn't change the pain in John's heart. He refused to join in to the games of society again.

Lady Amelia Jacoby was visiting an estate with a couple of her peers. Amelia's mother expected more than Amelia was willing  to give. Amelia grew up with parents who were unable to show her any kindness or love. After an argument with her mother Amelia saddled a horse and ran off. She took refuge in a barn during a storm and cried herself to sleep.

John found the lovely lady in his barn. He cared for her and showed her nothing but kindness. The next morning he sent a groom to tell her mother she was safe. He offered Amelia his hand in marriage because her name would be ruined.  She refused his offer. She would only marry for love.

Commanded by Amelia's father to return to London he was force to offer for her hand again. Her father trading her for one of John's valued horses. So begins the journey of these two young people who hardly knew each other and both really wanting nothing to do with marriage.

You will laugh, you'll cry, and you will wonder what could make parents so unloving and cruel. I loved the end of the book and I know you will too. God bless you all and have a great week.
