Review: My Sister's Intended by Rachael Anderson

Heidi Reads... My Sister's Intended by Rachael Anderson

My rating:4 stars / I really liked it


For as long as Prudence can remember, it has been understood that her sister will one day wed the eldest son of their nearest neighbor. Such an alliance will benefit both families and bring a great deal of joy to all parents involved.

Unfortunately, Prudence has never been able to feel as joyful. She believes her sister is mad to consider marrying a man she hardly knows, even if he will one day make her a countess. Titles and wealth shouldn't factor into matters of the heart, and as an aspiring romance novelist, Prudence cannot fathom how anyone could even think of settling for less than love. She certainly wouldn’t, and she doesn't want her sister to either.

Unable to stand by and do nothing, Prudence sets out to help the awkward couple discover the best in each other with the hope that they will eventually find love. What she neglected to foresee, however, was the possibility that she might fall in love with Lord Knave herself.

My Review

I enjoyed this entertaining Regency romance! Prudence is so likeable with her passionate and vibrant personality, and even though she needs to take a backseat to Sophia for the time being, she understands and supports her sister. Sophia seems a bit flat at first, but I love how the deeper layers of her character are revealed. Brand was a great hero, conflicted and reluctant but willing to do his duty for his family. His interactions with Prudence are full of humor and teasing, which is my favorite type of relationship! I was filled with anticipation as their affection grew deeper yet they had to hold back for Sophia's sake and I couldn't wait to see how the situation resolved with a happy ending for all. There will be two more books in the series, one for Sophia and one for Prudence's friend Abby which I'm looking forward to reading!
