The pampered daughter of a duke …

Lady Arabella Tremont has spent her entire life protected and overshadowed by her restrictive father. But she is a Tremont, after all, and the morning after she is nearly ruined at a ball by a handsome stranger, Arabella's father demands she make an arranged match with the heir to a dukedom. In desperation, Arabella takes matters into her own hands.

Takes a London holiday with the most unsuitable of chaperones …

Major Kingsley is in London to avoid his parents' dreadful house party. To his surprise he runs into the enticing—and unforgettable—minx he met at a ball the previous night. Arabella, or Birdie, as he knows her, insists he owes her three favors—for he's put her in a terrible pinch. Kingsley agrees, if only to delay his trip home and because the notion of spending the day with this enchanting bit of muslin is too tempting to resist. But all too quickly he discovers Arabella's requests are hardly what he expected …

Fun and cute quick read! Thoroughly enjoyable even knowing what would be the outcome of Kingsley and Birdie's situation. I haven't read any of the previous books in the series, and I don't think it's necessary to do so in order to enjoy this book. Having said that, I think I would enjoy them based on this novella.  4.5 stars ARC via Edelweiss

"Mad About The Major" by Elizabeth Boyle 2015 A Bachelor Chronicles Short Novel (205 pages) Major Kingsley was avoiding going to his parent's house party as they have arranged a marriage for him that he couldn't see any way of getting out of. He has decided to have as much fun as he can so while at a masquerade party an acquaintance told him of a courtesan who was attending the party. She had set up a wager of a monkey and the pleasure of her company for anyone who recognised her. This acquaintance told him he would point her out because he was proud to call the Major his hero. This acquaintance pointed to the loveliest creature Kingsley had ever seen. Against his better judgement he accepted the wager and started confidently toward her. Lady Arabella Tremont was dressed as a milkmaid so when the gentleman with a rich deep voice said "Oh, fair Milkmaid" she nearly sighed She'd heard so many compliments and all said how madly in love they were with her and probably her dowry as she was the Duke of Parkerton's only daughter. He lead her out into the garden. He started pulling off her gloves and his touch was sending the most dangerous tendrils of desire through her. He told her he had heard about her and that none of the tributes were exaggerated. He then began to tell her what he wanted her to do to him and what he would do to her. Arabella's mouth fell open having never been spoken to as he had done. Then he said "My lovely Mrs. Spencer..... Since I have discovered you first I understand I have earned me a perfect night. She gasped " I am not Mrs. Spencer!!" Then he realized that his so called friend had set him up. The next thing he knew the Duke of Parkerton landed Major Kingsley a hard fisted blow. The next day Arabella found herself being sent away. She was to meet her new betrothed her father stated. As they were entering into the carriage a turmoil started off to the side. When her father turned his head to see what the disturbance was, Arabella saw this as an opportunity to escape and took off running. Arabella saw Major Kingsley about two blocks down the street and Arabella had an idea. He owes her three favors for getting her into this mess. Major Kingsley was on his way to his parent's house party so he thought one more day wouldn't hurt and it might even be fun with this enchanting bit of muslin. Very entertaining! Happy reading!

I adored the heroine in this one so much! Arabella (Birdie) took life by the horns and ran with it. Kingsley would love to live his life without his families influence. They meet by accident at a ball with Kingsley being set up by his friends to accost Lady Arabella. Her father proceeds to punch him out cold and they leave thinking that's the end of it. On the way with her parents to meet her "betrothed" a few days later, she see's a chance to escape and takes it! She happens to run into Kingsley who's on the way to his parent's house as well. They proceed to spend the day together with him granting her 3 wishes of things she's always wanted to do to feel "free". The rest is history! I loved how I've never actually read a story like this before with this type of story line!
