Cezel
This book has a good plot idea, but the writing is so jerky, that I gave up on page 45 and just trahsed the book. There are no transitions from one plot line to the next. The hero arrives in London and offends the daughter of his shipping agent. Next he is on the steps of his sister's house who died a year ago and he had no idea? then the story jumps to some village in the north of england to a spinster's house. She is too stupid to figure out anything at all after her father dies leaving her alone with her estate. Hero arrives with sister's 2 toddler children, moves in, and on it goes. I got exhausted trying to jump my thought process through all jumps in plot lines. Oh yes, the spinster has a cousin who is her footman who is grandly dressed while she is deeply in debt. I could only guess this was Victorian times by the mention of a train and also clipper ships, which I think put it about 1850. It took me a long time to figure that out from description of dress, etc.

Spinster Bea Cavendish has a problem; her father has died, leaving a heavily-mortgaged estate to his only daughter. She has no idea how to run things because her domineering father felt women were to be dependent and cloistered away from the world. Things are spiraling out of control quickly and Bea has no idea how to stop it.

Scottish-American Lachlan Warwick MacTavish, while on leave from sea travel, went to see his married sister. Instead, he found two children being abused and neglected; Lachlan’s sister had died and her debauched husband had left the children in the care of others. MacTavish promptly took both children from the home, looking for a nanny to care for them until he could take them to Virginia.

Instead of finding the nanny he was seeking (she had recently died), MacTavish met Bea. Bea and MacTavish agree to help each other; she will help with his four-year-old nephew and infant niece. In exchange, MacTavish will teach Bea what she needs to learn about running an estate. Mac and the children will reside in a small house on the property until he sets sail again.

Mac neglects to tell Bea that he has kidnapped the children from their self-indulgent father, the Viscount Simmons. As Bea and Mac work together, their romance begins. However, there is a huge block to any real attachment: Mac intends to sail back to America and Bea’s intends to live out her life on her estate.

This is a charming story that moves a bit slowly; the main characters are life-like and complement each other. Their conflict mirrors the changes taking place during that time: The difference between the way things had always been done vs. the wave of the future.

Lachlan MacTavish is an American in London on business and decides to visit his younger sister. Unfortunately, he reaches his sister's home to find that she has died, and her children are being severely neglected. Mac's brother-in-law is none other than a drunken Viscount Simmons, and Mac decides that his niece and nephew would be safest while in the care of their uncle.
Mac kidnaps the children and flees to the country only to discover that the woman recommended for the position of nanny is no longer alive. His quest for a nanny leads him to the home of Beatrice Cavendish, a long Meg of a spinster trying desperately to run the estate she inherited from her father. Bea agrees to let Mac stay at her home until his ship is ready to sail, though she is under the misapprehension that he is a widower and father to the children. In exchange, Mac agrees to teach Bea about the running of the estate. Lady Taubee, Bea's eccentric aunt, visits Bea's home and manages to get Mac to admit his true identity which is soon revealed to Bea. Mutual attraction leads Bea and Mac to marry, though she wants no man to control her future and convinces herself and him that she would be better off remaining to run her estate while he sails his ship and the children back to Virginia.
Richly entertaining and frequently laced with humor, this novel sets a pace that will hold the reader's interest. Bea and Mac are the perfect example of the phrase 'opposites attract'. She epitomizes the straight-laced English spinster, while he is the gruff American. Though the children are instrumental in bringing this unlikely pair together, their admiration for one another, both physical and intellectual, gives their relationship sticking power.
The supporting players make this book worthwhile, too. They create a sub-plot of their own, especially James, the over-dressed distant cousin of a footman. One can't help but wonder how his relationship to Bea really fits into the storyline. This is definitely a novel worth exploring.

American Lachlan McTavish arrives in London on business, but looks forward to also seeing his younger sister, a local resident married to a viscount. Lachlan has not heard from Marilee in about eight years, but is stunned to learn Lady Simmons, as the servant call his sibling, has been dead for almost a year. Even more shocking is that her children are neglected and abused, and her husband is a twenty-four-hour drunk. Unable to idly ignore what is happening to his nephews, Lachlan abducts the two kids.

Beatrice Cavendish quickly learns she has no experience or training in managing the family estate that she recently inherited with the death of her father. Worse yet, her father left the estate in near bankruptcy. Mac arrives seeking Nanny Marrow to help him with two children in town, only to learn she died just last week. However, he and Bea strike a deal. He teaches her how to run an estate and she insures the children receive proper nurturing. Neither one expected to fall in love and his nephews to blossom, but it explodes amidst all four of them.

ALL A WOMAN WANTS is an entertaining nineteenth century romance that showcases the talent of Patricia Rice. The story line is poignant as it highlights the impact of neglect on several levels (not just the children) and quite amusing especially with the interaction between the key cast members. This ultra-talented author's novels are not just a steamy bowl of rice; her works are a gourmet delight.
