Miss Featherton's Christmas Prince (The Marriage Game #8) by Ella Quinn

Meg Featherton has been burned in the quest for marriage, not once, but twice, in fact. Her first suitor turns out to be a man who beats women and her second just happens to have a secret family consisting of his mistress and the children they have together. Disillusioned with love, Meg has decided to marry for comfort, leaving her feelings out of it. Is she in for a surprise? Meg sets her sights on Charles, Viscount Throughgood, he would make a good catch and she wouldn't expect anything from him but respectability. But unbeknownst to Meg, Charles AKA Chuffy only has eyes for Meg's friend Amanda. Oh what a tangled web we weave.

Enter, Damon, Marquis of Hawksworth, who has never lacked female company, but cannot fathom why Meg won't give him the time of day. Admitting that he is interested in her is half the journey and once he has come to the realization that Meg would make a good wife, convincing her is more like a quest. Along with some help from Amanda, Chuffy and the Christmas season, Damon strives to bring Meg around to the idea of marriage to him and the possibility of opening her bruised heart.

MISS FEATHERTON'S CHRISTMAS PRINCE by Ella Quinn is the eighth installment in the Marriage Game series. There is a lot going on here and you can't blink, or you may miss pertinent information. While I really like Damon with his light and very sexy manner, I am not much a fan of Meg's. I found her to be stubborn and a tad blind when it came to her intentions. Damon attempts to woo her are met with extreme resistance and it truly starts to grate on me. I do love the back story with Chuffy and Amanda to be a nice touch. The Marriage Game series is truly a good one, but this read is not one of my favorites.
