In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell’s glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing… until the return of a rake throws a bride’s plans— and heart—into a tailspin.
Every debutante aspires to snag a duke. Elin Morris just happens to have had one reserved since birth. But postponements of her marriage to London’s most powerful peer give Elin time to wonder how she will marry Gavin Baynton when she cannot forget his brother, Benedict.
Already exasperated at being yanked from the military to meet “family obligations,” now Ben must suffer watching his arrogant sibling squire the only woman he has ever loved. Joining the army saved Ben from sinking into bitterness, but seeing Elin again takes him back to the day they surrendered to their intoxicating desire.
As the wedding draws near, Elin tries to push Ben far from her thoughts. When danger
brings them together, there is no denying their feelings. But can Elin choose love over duty…?

Review (3.75 Stars): The Match of the Century was a charming and delightful romance that shows that you will never forget your first love.  Elin had a romantic fling with Ben when they were both very young, but Ben took off the next day to fulfill his obligations in the military.  On the night where Elin is set to announce her engagement to his brother, Gavin, Ben returns and discovers that Elin has become a beautiful young woman.  Sparks fly between these two as Elin tries to decide if she should marry for stability or marry for love.


I liked The Match of the Century because Elin was an enjoyable character that was having doubts about what she should do.  Her family wanted her to marry Gavin for stability and status and she was unsure because she didn’t really love Gavin.  Ben was a hot-headed, take charge type of guy who still had feelings for Elin but he had carved himself a nice life in the military and wanted to go back to what was comfortable.  I liked these two characters together and I enjoyed the time that I spent with them.  This is the first book in the Marrying The Duke series and I’m looking forward to reading what is next for Ms. Maxwell.
