Love is a singular madness…

Miss Madeline Prescott’s father issues an ultimatum: marry the suitor of his choice, a man thrice her age, or find her own husband by month’s end. Yet men are not exactly lining up to court the girl known as Mad Maddie. With time running out, she chooses rashly: a rake so disillusioned by love that he may consider her strange offer of marriage to relieve the burden of having to marry at all. All she has to do is ask…

After nursing his wounded heart for more than a year, Lord Jonathan Flynn, Viscount Rigsby, reluctantly returns to society, only to be cornered by Mad Maddie with a ridiculous request. If he considers her proposal for even one second, he will prove himself to be as mad as the chit is rumored to be. Questionable sanity aside, after some consideration, he agrees to court her and see if her plan holds water. What he finds is that Maddie is more than mad. She is brave, intelligent and kind. If he can’t marry for love, marrying Maddie could be the next best thing.

They embark on a whirlwind courtship to convince their families of the veracity of the match. Neither anticipates the intense passion that sparks between them. But Maddie’s troubled past may prove to be a barrier that even the strongest love cannot overcome.

Well this one maybe my favourite to date. Lucy may had the fun  factor and knew how to drive  everyone mad with her fun loving nature  as she wanted the right man.  However Mad Maddie she is of a different kind.  This is a heroine who I could support getting her happily ever after because who she was and the situation she was in . Don’t let the name fool you, this young woman is an educated woman ahead of her time and you have to respect her tenacity .  She may not have the grace that everyone expected but she was honest and determined. She fit right in thought the others may have taken a while to appreciate her.

She knows how to handle situations and she doesn’t ‘care about how the ton views her. However when her father forces her hand, we finally get to met her and she has quite the entrance into the ton world that Quince has created.

Maddie is been forced into marriage with a man three times her age and she isn’t going to let other decided her situation. She rather choose and she clever played her father into the current situation  where he has given her a month to find her own husband supposedly.

Her target, Jonathan, the future Earl , the same John than who was left with a broken heart after the last book. It’s been a year since the events when we saw him  and he is still nursing the broken heart.

He hasn’t come to terms that he doesn’t actually love Thea.  It’s sad sight as he has  become truly a rake but he still got his senses about him .He doesn’t want to get involved with another young lady of the ton.  However Maddie is a force to be reckon with and  this story is not what it seems.

Despite the total improper nature of the way this situation  comes to be. This story follows a pretty traditional   courtship terms even though it’s not recognised . As Maddie doesn’t care for decorum when her future is at stake . You would think these two would force their hands and start off engagement with a scandal.

No there is a careful game played. It  allows for a real affection to form and I enjoy the  nod to medieval times , Jonathan  becomes a reformed rake.  He truly shows the man I thought he would be over the course of the novel.

The new and improved Jonathan  need time to come to this realisation and I think he got the best of both worlds in this situation. Whilst the pain was still there, Maddie did more than she ever hoped. She changed thingz around for him and I like how this story ended. It reflected the course of this story and how far they had both come. It’s sweet  and perfect ending to the whole journey these two have been on for so long.

Mad about You is no overnight miracle but it’s a historical romance that plays to strengths of the characters and particularly the genre. It’s fun but it’s also honest and allows females to be ahead of it’s time.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

Dayna Quince was only fourteen when she developed a serious addiction to romance novels. What began as an innocent desire to read became an all-out obsession with the romance genre. She gave book reports on romance novels, got in trouble for reading during lectures, and would rather spend her time reading than attending high school parties. After all, high school boys could not compete with the likes of Stephanie Laurens Devil Cynster. After getting her first job, her addiction only got worse. She now had her own money to spend and a car to get to Barnes and Noble as frequently as she wanted. She managed to maintain a somewhat normal life, marrying her high school boyfriend who was aware he was competing with fictional men for her attention. Dayna soon began writing her own romance novels, inspired by her love for all things romance. Dayna and her husband live in Southern California with their two children and three fur babies. Dayna is happiest at home where she can be with her family and write to her heart’s content.
