A ruse can only last so long…

Tillie Sherbrooke was born a lady, but lost her place in society by her father’s folly. Quiet, resourceful, and loyal, she now makes the perfect lady’s maid for her mistress Sophia. When Sophia’s parents give her no choice but to travel across England to be matched with a mysterious young bachelor, Mr. Hill, she has no interest, especially since there are several other ladies vying for him. Who better to send in her place than Tillie? What gentleman would notice a maid, even one disguised as a lady? So when Sophia asks this favor of Tillie, or rather—threatens her into it, Tillie must rely on her past, the life of a proper lady, if she hopes to keep her position at Sedgwick Manor.

Disguised as her mistress, Tillie takes a coach across the country to a new place, one both unfamiliar and frightening. With so much at stake, she does all she can to stay quiet and invisible. But when she inadvertently catches Mr. Hill’s attention, she realizes she may have more to lose than her livelihood. She may very well lose her heart.

The Last Eligible Bachelor is a sweet/clean regency romance stand-alone novel, book two in the Seasons of Change series.

My Thoughts

So, I hate The Bachelor and The Bachelorette series on TV. I find these shows super fake and ugly. And everything comes off super desperate and cheap. BUT it turns out I really love this bachelor trope in my Clean-Read and Christian Romances. I especially love this trope when the Hero is the attentive sort and really pays attention to details. When a Hero sees — I mean really sees — the true goodness and worth of the Heroine and chooses her over the popular, stereotypically pretty women, my heart always swoons! The Last Eligible Bachelor by Ashtyn Newbold is a fantastic take on this bachelor trope. I devoured this book in about a day, that’s how awesome it is. Tillie is an excellent heroine. I can’t speak for everyone, but for me it can be super easy to go down a negative-Nancy path. And it sometimes doesn’t take much for me to spiral. Tillie, however, is outstanding. Life comes at her and she holds her head up high and does whatever she needs to do. She gets sad, frustrated, angry, and hurt just like anyone else would, but she doesn’t let it get her down. I really liked this about her character. And Mr. Hill is perfect. He is devilishly handsome. He is a tad bit mysterious. And he pays attention. He sees Tillie for the amazing woman she is even if she isn’t the prettiest woman in the room. I really loved how Tillie and Mr. Hill’s relationship matured over the course of this story. It was really fun to watch them navigate their relationship amidst a bunch a wealthy, pretty, preening, competing women. Oh! And this book is funny. I laughed out loud quite a few times.

The Last Eligible Bachelor is a great Historical Romance that I cannot recommend enough. This book is GOOD! If you have not yet read this gem then I recommend you get a copy of this book ASAP. You will not be disappointed!

I borrowed a copy of this novel in eBook form from Amazon.com via my Kindle Unlimited subscription on June 25, 2020, in order to review. In no way has this influenced my review. The opinions expressed in this review are my own.

  1. I’m glad that you made the point in your review about the TV shows. Those are awful…like soft porn in your living room. I enjoyed your review and although I don’t read Regency romance, this one sounds good.
