To Catch A Lady by Pamela Labud

To Catch A Lady by Pamela Laud 

This is book 1 in the Hunt Club series.

Ashton Blakely, the Duke of Summerton, is determined to undermine his aunt's plan for him to marry. He doesn't want a love match because he saw how it tore apart his parents. Ashton decides to throw a ball and at the end of it will name his bride. They will get married that evening, quickly get an heir and then live their separate lives. Of course things do always go as planned...

Caroline Hawkins is trying to get her sister married. She is passed the age of finding herself a good match, so she puts all her energy into her sister. Going so far at to demand to see the Duke to get her sister noticed. Unfortunately her plan backfired...for with her visit the Duke became intrigued with her. At the ball, Caroline and Ashton find themselves alone and end up being compromised. Fate had determined the outcome of the ball.

Married in haste, Ashton takes Caroline to his hunting lodge where nothing goes as planned. Can this hasty marriage turn into one of true love?

I will say that I enjoyed the beginning of this book, but then it just went down hill...

I liked the idea behind the story. The H/H of the story have an attraction to each other and then they get caught in a compromising situation.  Caroline had no plans of marrying, so Ashton could have let her reputation be ruined. But instead he steps up and does the right thing. 

I don't know if it was the writing style or the writing quality that had me skimming over the second half of the book, but it just didn't hold my interest.

I will probably give Labud another try. I just hoping that the next one in the series is better than this one...

You can get this book at the following retailers:

Thanks go out to Random House via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
