The Husband Campaign by Regina Scott (The Master Matchmakers series #3)
A Marriage of Necessity
The moment John, Lord Hascot, encounters a young woman sheltering in his abandoned stable, his future is sealed. To prevent scandal—and protect Lady Amelia Jacoby from her parents' ire—he must propose. John's ability to trust vanished when his former love married his twin brother. Yet he offers Amelia everything she could want—except affection.
Amelia sees John's true nature shine through when he cares for his horses. But the brooding aristocrat seems determined to keep her at arm's length. Little by little Amelia will turn Hollyoak Farm into a home, but can she turn a marriage of convenience into a joyful union?

My Review: The Husband Campaign
This is book 3 in the series. I have read the first book also and liked both books. It is a clean read. Historical romance, even a Christian book. It has plenty of drama, likeable characters, horses.
The plot John finds Lady Amelia asleep in his barn waiting out a rainstorm. Since they were alone for a time her family demands they marry. Before they are comfortable in their marriage they end up with guests who want some things from them.
The story keeps your interest. You care about John and Amelia and want them to be happy. You also wonder at what the others want besides making trouble for them.
Lady Amelia is not close to her family and she wants to marry for love but her father wants her to marry for his benefit and not what is best for her.
Lord Hascot raises horses and he refuses to sell a horse if he does not trust them to take care of them. He also refuses to sale them to military.
The pace is slow building up to the story. Letting us get to know the characters and life in the England.
The setting is England countryside of Dovecote Dale 1815.
This is a fast read that leaves you with a smile.
I was given this ebook to read and in exchange asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
