About the Book
Jilted in front of all New York, Theodore Day decides to lose himself in his family’s luxury riverboat business in New Orleans and compete against his brother to become the next company head. The brother with the most sales by summer’s end will win the position. Thanks to Theodore’s fame as a suitor in a socialite’s outlandish competition to find a husband, he has become very desirable royalty in Southern society and thus has an advantage.
It took Flora Wingfield’s best work to convince her family to summer in New Orleans, but with Teddy Day a bachelor once again, she’s leaving nothing to chance. Desperate to stand out from all the clamoring belles, Flora attempts a bold move that goes completely awry, only to find it’s her interior design skills that finally catch his notice.
But when Flora’s father’s matchmaking schemes come in the way of her plans, Teddy will have to decide where his happiness truly lies and what he is willing to sacrifice for it.

In My Opinion
While I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the American Royalty series and believed Willow ended up with the right man for her, I couldn’t feel bad for Theodore (aka Teddy) in the situation. Therefore, I was thrilled to know he’s one of the leads in Her Darling Mr. Day by Grace Hitchcock.
Friends to more romances are my favorites because there is so much history already between characters, and Hitchcock delves into that with aplomb. Add plenty of other women vying for Teddy’s affections, a few suitors for Flora, a touch of mystery and a fair bit of humor, and readers are in for a real treat when they delve into this Gilded Age historical romance. There’s also some great New Orleans and steamboat history woven into the novel.
If you enjoy Jen Turano’s books or a good historical romance with some good chuckles, then don’t miss out on this series.
