A Reader's Opinion: MAD ABOUT THE BARON by Bianca Blythe

Updated: Feb 4, 2020


A quick and delightful read! Bianca Blythe's novel, MAD ABOUT THE BARON, is a charming story that will make you giggle! If you love romantic stories set during the Regency era, then this one will please you. The heroine, Veronique Daventry, is absolutely a hopeless romantic . . . so when she thinks she has found the perfect husband, she makes her move. During the period of two years, she had been corresponding with a baron and had fallen in love with him through their writings. Now, she has decided to meet him at the chapel to get married . . . or not. Unfortunately, the wrong man shows up! What will happen next? Veronique and Miles—the latter is a notorious rogue—are caught in a case of mistaken identity and also in a compromising position. What is she to do? When they are caught, she is so mad at herself for having made that mistake. I have to say that some scenes are so cute and hilarious. Although their story will have its twists and turns, it's mostly about adventure and passion. MAD ABOUT THE BARON is well written, and filled with intrigue and romance with a touch of humor. I'm looking forward to read her next book in this beautiful series of hers, Matchmaking for Wallflowers!
