Description from amazon.com:
Dear Cici and Father,
I have come to Devon and married a duke. And I’m more tired and hungry than I have ever been in my life. Please let me come home.
Compromised and wedded on the same day, Lady Miranda was fast finding married life not to her taste. A decaying manor and a secretive husband were hardly the stuff of girlish dreams. Yet every time she looked at dark, brooding Marcus Radwell, Duke of Haughleigh, she felt inexplicably compelled—and determined—to make their marriage real!
This HR was delightfully different than most. Setting aside the improbable circumstances that triggered the marriage, the resulting story was top notch and very compelling. I finished this in one day with several interruptions. The duke’s brother was a totally engaging dastardly rake. The heroine was delightful in her worldliness and in her naiveté. I think the characterization of the major characters was so well done that we could believe that they were real. For they all had traits both good and not so good in their personalities. I can recommend this book to Historical Regency romance fans and I will seek out more books by Christine Merrill.
