For as long as Prudence can remember, it has been understood that her sister will one day wed the eldest son of their nearest neighbor. Such an alliance will benefit both families and bring a great deal of joy to all parents involved.
Unfortunately, Prudence has never been able to feel as joyful. She believes her sister is mad to consider marrying a man she hardly knows, even if he will one day make her a countess. Titles and wealth shouldn't factor into matters of the heart, and as an aspiring romance novelist, Prudence cannot fathom how anyone could even think of settling for less than love. She certainly wouldn’t, and she doesn't want her sister to either.
Unable to stand by and do nothing, Prudence sets out to help the awkward couple discover the best in each other with the hope that they will eventually find love. What she neglected to foresee, however, was the possibility that she might fall in love with Lord Knave herself.

Author Rachael Anderson crafted a delightful tale that captured my attention and my emotions from the start in My Sister’s Intended. With endearing characters and witty prose, the story of the naive Prudence attempting to help her sister had me grinning and even laughing out loud at times.
I was led on a merry dance of changing opinions about Brand (Lord Knave), starting with being convinced at one moment that he truly lived up to his title of “knave” and in the next being convinced that he was honorable and true. The irony of the names of the characters, that Knave was not one and Prudence seemed to lack that quality is an example of the playful paradoxes in the story.
Prudence was a delightful character, full of energy, innocence, and spunk. Her love for reading and writing and desire to know what it was like to be in love and the way it drove her to seek answers from Brand made for a great story.
If you enjoy historical novels, this book should be on your “must read” list!
