A Good Match for the Major by Josie Bonham
ABOUT THE BOOK
Pride meets prejudice – can love blossom?
Beautiful young widow, Lady Eliza Wyndham, is determined never to remarry after a disastrous first marriage. The undeniable attraction that fizzes between her and Major Nathaniel Overton terrifies her. She rejects his advances.
With his pride badly dented, Nat vows to forget Eliza until he finds her in danger from an old adversary of his army days. His protective instincts are stirred and he steps back into her life, but will Eliza be prepared to accept his help?
This is my first book by Josie Bonham and I was pleasantly surprised at the way she earns the reader’s attention from the very start by the protagonists literally running into each other. Then the doubts and insecurities of the past are added along with an unmistakable attraction laced with a bit of matchmaking and intrigue leading to a HEA ending.
Eliza has legitimate doubts about Nat’s intentions considering her dead husband was a gold-digging bully and she is an heiress to a large fortune. However, Nat is an honorable and charming man with an impeccable reputation as a leader and an astute businessman in his own right. Watching these two butt heads is a treat to watch while friends and family are determined to throw them together. In addition, there is just the right amount of sexual tension to keep one captivated to find out how this delightful romance ends. Not to mention using Nat’s military skills to protect Eliza from a vicious and dangerous man. I would also like to mention that I loved the many supporting characters who gave this story even more depth and charm.
I am thrilled to recommend this highly entertaining and exciting Regency romance. I have read many romances in my day, and I have to rate this one of my favorites of all time.
Thank you to Ms. Bonham for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Josie lives in the English midlands, surrounded by towns full of history such as Evesham, Stratford-Upon- Avon, Warwick and Worcester. Which is perhaps why her favourite reads are historical. Out of all the periods to choose from the Regency Era stirs her imagination the most. The true Regency lasted from 1811 until 1820 but dates as wide as 1789 to 1837 have been included in the extended Regency period. For Josie the true flavour of this period emerges after the iniquitous hair powder tax of 1795, unsurprisingly, scuppered the fashion for hair powder almost overnight.
Josie has always dabbled in stories but it took the combined efforts of her sister and eldest niece to set her on the path to writing novels. Her Regency romances, with a dash of adventure and intrigue, are the result.
