Synopsis

All Victoria wants to do is get her charges safely to their destination. Then a chance encounter means that she’s thrust into the presence of the “catch of the century”. Will they succumb to their emotions or have a little more self control?

Thoughts

Unlike the first three stories in this collection, it took me a little while to fall in love with it. When I did, it was amazing. But it did take a chapter for me to become emotionally invested. However, once I did I was completely hooked. And actually a little mad when the story ended. I have now discovered that I really love regency romances, and I can’t wait to find more stories in this series!

I’m a stubborn, painful woman. Often to the detriment of myself. Which made me fall completely in love with Victoria. She’s stubborn and independent. Unwilling to give up her sense of self and ideas of identity just because a good looking man deigns to smile upon her. Definitely my kind of woman. But, she’s also so stubborn that there’s moments when she’s kind of unwilling to see beyond her own thoughts to what might end in her happily ever after. I also love that she’s the stubborn, independent woman of the group mentioned, yet she’s also the one who comes from the lowest class background. A good little mix in there.

I read this at the end of a long day. I was exhausted, and feeling kind of low, and just really needed something sweet and happy to act as a pick me up. Catch of the Century did this perfectly. It also helped to remind me that sometimes I should try new genres and authors. I didn’t imagine that I’d love Regency romance so much (which is stupid, because I LOVE Jane Austen). The sweet nature, happily ever after and focus on relationships was exactly what I needed. And I am so grateful that I had this to look forward to when I was feeling overwhelmed.
