With seven troublesome half sisters to marry off, Duncan, the Earl of Eads, has one problem: he's broke.

With the prospect of marriage to the pompous local curate, Miss Teresa Finch-Freeworth has one dream: to wed instead the handsome Highlander she saw at a ball.

How does a desperate lady convince a reluctant laird that she's the perfect bride for him? She strikes a wager! If she can find seven husbands for seven sisters, the earl must marry her.

Duncan has no intention of wedding the meddlesome maiden, and he gives her a deadline even the most audacious matchmaker can't meet—one month. But Teresa sets terms, too: with each bridegroom she finds, the earl must pay her increasingly intimate rewards . . .

I have only read a book or two from this author, previously to reading How To Marry A Highlander. I have enjoyed her stories in the past, so I was looking forward to this novella. It is a bit short, 100 pages, but surprsingly was pretty well done, and wasn’t too rushed as I expected it to be. It definitely had a fun flair of dramatics and passionate mystery that engages the reader fully into the story. I found the idea of their “wager” intriguing and the connection between Duncan and Teresa instataneous and I couldn’t help but find the situation humorous and full of laughs. It was interesting seeing his sisters reaction to Teresa, and definitely was on their side. When a smart and cunning woman is involving in getting what she wants, a lone man has zero chance!! Although I did enjoy seeing him trying anyway. A fun and witty story that will capture your attention!! If you are looking for a short yet sweet romantic tale, definitely worth the read!!!
