Description
A spinster's happy solitude is interrupted by the undeniable lure of love in the USA Today bestselling author's Regency romance.
Miss Jane Wilkinson couldn't be more delighted when her two best friends marry, creating a much-desired vacancy at the Spinster House. For the first time in her twenty-eight years, Jane can be free of her annoying older brother and enjoy complete solitude—with the exception of the Spinster House cat, Poppy. If only Jane's unruly thoughts didn't keep drifting to handsome Alex, Earl of Evans, in the most un-spinster like ways . . .
Now that his two closest friends have tied the knot, Alex is more determined than ever to find a wife. If only it wasn't the intriguing Miss Jane Wilkinson that his heart—as well as the rest of him—desired. Not only does she appear uninterested in marriage, it's clear she's the managing sort. And yet, despite Alex's independent spirit, being managed by her sounds quite appealing. Now if he can only convince her to give up her beloved Spinster House in favor of a far more pleasurable home—in his arms . . .

        Starred review from May 15, 2017
        Spinsterhood has its advantages in the small village of Loves Bridge; some lucky unmarried woman gets to live by herself at Spinster House until she dies or gets married. It's one of the only ways (short of being a widow) for a woman to have a truly independent life. Now that her two best friends, Cat and Anne, featured in the earlier installments in MacKenzie's Spinster House trilogyWhat to Do with a Duke (2015) and How to Manage a Marquess (2016)have wed, Jane Wilkinson is overjoyed to win the opportunity to live at the home. At the ripe old age of 28, she has neither the time nor the need for the opposite sex. Jane is aided by Poppy, the cat that comes with Spinster House, who strikes fear in the hearts of men. Alex, Earl of Evans, having just been jilted by his fiancee, is in no hurry to repeat his mistake. However, Poppy tolerates Alex, which has to be a sign of something. Friends and relatives alike feel that Alex and Jane belong together. All they need is a little (maybe not so subtle) push. The always-entertaining MacKenzie presents a perfect ending in this Regency romp, the final book in her sexy and delightful series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
