(2 reviews)  

Mr. Peregrine Tyndall has often been called the laziest man in London. But he is stirred to the enormous effort of matchmaking when a hunting accident suffered by his cousin, Lord Shipton, makes him realize that he stands in real danger of inheriting an earldom - with all its responsibilities. In his opinion, the perfect girl to marry his cousin and give the earldom another heir than himself would be their childhood friend, Portia Freestone.

Mr. Tyndall doesn't know what formidable obstacles lay before him, however, when he joins a house party at the earl's country home with this match on his mind. In the first place, his normally obliging friend Portia has a secret. She has no wish to marry the earl - she likes him very well, but the man she secretly wishes to marry is Perry himself. An even bigger problem is Miss Frances Armitage. She and her little sister Eleanor had been left in Perry's guardianship, a duty he had benignly and completely neglected. But now Miss Armitage, furious, is about to descend on Lakeford Hall to demand that Perry take up his duties in a responsible manner, even if she has to force him to do it.

Thrust into just the sort of efforts he dislikes most, Mr. Tyndall tries his best to cope, and in the attempt, gets a great deal more than he bargained for.

The Rowland Sisters Trilogy Bk 2 – The Lazy Bachelor by Catherine Dove

In this delightful Regency novel, Peregrin Tyndale, the lazy bachelor, attempts to find a bride for his cousin Lord Shipton. Peregrin’s motive is purely selfish. Being next in line for the earldom, should anything happen to the earl, Perry would inherit the title and all the responsibilities that goes with it. This is his worst nightmare. His typical avoidance of responsibility has led to several of the plot complications in this novel. He must get his cousin married and working on an heir post haste.

Catherine Dove understands the manners and the language of the period and masterfully puts the reader in that time and place. Her characters are believable and appealing. Her dialogue is natural and funny. I particularly enjoyed the repartee between the heroine, Portia, and the charming rake, Ravenshill.

All the romance is handled discreetly and well.

I heartily recommend The Lazy Bachelor to fans of Regency Romance. I give it 5 stars.

I liked the characters and the descriptions. Mr. Peregrine Tyndall, perhaps one of the heroes, certainly has been brought to life as someone who likes to go through life with the minimum of effort.
