Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

A Complicated Regency Love Triangle

The Match of the Century: Marrying the Duke - Cathy Maxwell

“No, I’m not letting you hide behind the title. Speak to me, Gavin. Shout at me, rail at me–throw another fist at me. Live, man. Live.”
In response, his brother looked at him, his eyes hard shards. “She’s mine.”


The Match of the Century was a love triangle set at the very start of the Regency period. Full of drama, some laughs, and hidden love, Ben and Elin’s story was a complicated but endearing one.


After having a couple of small issues with it at the beginning, I came to enjoy this first full length novel in Cathy Maxwell’s newest series quite a bit. I was blown away with the prequel novella, A Little Thing Called Love, which was the story of Elin’s parents falling in love and how Elin became betrothed to Gavin. I would highly recommend reading it to get the full benefit of knowing why she makes certain comments about her parents and when she then compares herself and Ben to them.
