The Naked Gentleman by Sally MacKenzie

John Parker-Roth doesn’t want to get married. With no title to pass on and no need for an heir, he doesn’t see the necessity. He wants to spend his time working with his plants and avoiding his mother’s matchmaking schemes.

Miss Margaret Peterson knows that she needs to marry, but she wants it to be someone that she feels attraction for. So, she begins taking her “candidates” into the gardens at house parties to see if they are compatible.

Mr. Parker-Roth would never want a wife that wasn’t a gently bred, demure woman. So why is he so attracted to Miss Margaret Peterson?

I enjoyed this book, but there were several things that I didn’t like. The narrative would jump from the focus of Meg to that of Parker-Roth and the dialogue would repeat. So every once in a while you would have to read the same thing twice. I like when books give an insight into both the hero and the heroines point-of-view, but I don’t want to read the same thing twice. I also didn’t like the way the book ended, but I won’t talk about that (don’t want to give it away for those that want to read it.)
