New Orleans' most eligible bachelor insists he's not on the market . . . but he couldn't be more wrong.
Jilted in front of all New York, Theodore Day decides to lose himself in his family's luxury riverboat business in New Orleans and compete against his brother to become the next company head. The brother with the most sales by summer's end will win the position. Thanks to Theodore's fame as a suitor in a socialite's outlandish competition to find a husband, he has become very desirable royalty in Southern society and thus has an advantage.
It took Flora Wingfield's best work to convince her family to summer in New Orleans, but with Teddy Day a bachelor once again, she's leaving nothing to chance. Desperate to stand out from all the clamoring belles, Flora attempts a bold move that goes completely awry, only to find it's her interior design skills that finally catch his notice.
But when Flora's father's matchmaking schemes come in the way of her plans, Teddy will have to decide where his happiness truly lies and what he is willing to sacrifice for it.
Reviewer: Laura J. Davis
Her Darling Mr. Day, the second installment of the American Royalty series from Grace Hitchcock, is a delightful romance that is hard to put down.
Flora Wingfield is determined to capture the attention (and heart) of Theodore (Teddy) Day. She has her work cut out for her. Teddy has two failed engagements, so he doesn't trust himself to fall in love again. Plus, his father has created a competition between him and his brother Carlisle for their luxury riverboat business. Whoever makes the most sales by summer's end becomes the next head of the company. So Teddy has no time for women. But somehow, Flora manages to put herself in his path at every turn. And no wonder, since her father is determined to marry her off by summer's end to whoever comes calling.
With her future hanging in the balance, Flora is determined not to let anything stop her from catching Teddy's eye, which, of course, results in a series of misunderstandings, humour and, at times, danger.
I enjoyed this book much more than the first one in the series. I particularly liked the interior design aspects of it. While there were some faith elements to this book, it was not central to the theme. Hence the four stars. But, if you enjoy historical romance, you will like this one!
