Book Review: The Duke and the Debutante by Katherine Ann Madison


The Duke and the Debutante by Katherine Ann Madison (AKA Tammy Andresen)

Matchmaking on the Marriage Mart (Book 1)

Swift Romance Publishing Corp (May 19, 2022)

Sweet Regency Romance/Teen & YA Historical Romance


What happens when the most eligible bachelor in England mistakes a lady for a servant? Mayhem, of course.

And Lady Evelyn dislikes anything that draws attention to herself. Which is why she’s hiding in the kitchen when the most distinguished and available guest arrives, The Duke of Wingate. It’s not as though she has a chance no matter how many match making schemes her mother and his aunt can cook up. Why would one of the most powerful men in England want her?

He’s too rough for someone as delicate as her…

As a duke, he’ll have to marry and make an heir. There’s no question about that. But he’s little patience for games and even less for courting. He’s busy and besides, he’ll not allow a few scheming biddies to dictate his future.

Which is why he sneaks into the kitchen of his aunt’s house rather than entering through the front door. He’ll show them… But his attempts to foil their plans send him crashing, literally, into Lady Evelyn.

Yes, she’s beautiful, and sweet, and gentle, and completely wrong for him. Isn’t she? Definitely. Possibly… perhaps a kiss will help him decide.


This is an opposites attract, sweet regency romance. Suited for all age groups. I liked both the characters and how even though he seems they were not suited for each other, they both brought out the best in each other. I loved that she had the calming affect on him and that he helped build her confidence. Book one in the MATCHMAKING ON THE MARRIAGE MART series. Recommend.
