From Booklist:

Coerced by her termagant of a great aunt into abandoning impending spinsterhood, Phillida Morgan comes up with a list of qualities her future husband must possess, and then asks her maid Flint to discretely come up with some possible candidates. Convinced it's time for him to finally marry, Lucas Strathedene requests his butler Tuttles' help in finding the perfect paragon to wed. Then Phillida and Lucas meet at a soiree, and the two decide that a pretend engagement would keep their meddling relatives out of their love lives and give them time to find suitable spouses on their own. Of course, the more time they spend together, the more Phillida and Lucas realize how much they enjoy each other's company. The only problem is that neither one wants to be the first to suggest that they turn their faux engagement into a real relationship! Rich in humor, whimsy, and deliciously amusing characters, Savery's tale is exactly the kind of wonderfully witty romance Regency readers delight in discovering. John Charles

From Library Journal:

Lord John can hardly set foot out his door without running into a marriage-minded mama with a giggling miss in tow. So he enlists the aid of his manservant to see if, through the servants' grapevine, a suitable bride can be found to get him off the marriage mart. Phillida Morgan is in the same pickle. Tired of having odious and callow young men pushed at her by a scheming aunt, Phillida begs her lady's maid to help her find a husband--since it seems she must have one. When Lord John and Phillida meet, they confide their mutual problem and agree to help each other find a mate. But when their servants meet and decide that their employers are most suitable for each other, all parties involved learn that interfering with love can have unexpected results. By the author of A Handful of Promises (Walker, 1992), this novel is well written but has no surprises. Recommended for Regency readers.
