Description from Amazon.com:
Noah Winters, Duke of Anselm, exercises the pragmatism for which he’s infamous when his preferred choice of bride cries off, and her companion, Lady Thea Collins, becomes his next choice for his duchess. Lady Thea’s mature, sensible and even rather attractive-what could possibly go wrong?
As a lady fallen on hard times, Thea doesn’t expect tender sentiments from His Grace, but she does wish Noah had courted her trust, lest her past turn their hastily arranged marriage into a life of shared regrets. Is His Grace courting a convenient wife, or a beautiful disaster?
Grace Burrowes has given us another HR page turner. Noah is not sure he made the correct decision marrying Thea but since this is Regency England he is stuck. There is no way he will get an annulment because that is courting scandal for his already scandalous family. Thea is guilty over everything she has laid on Noah’s plate and is shocked to discover how close her personal scandal is to Noah. In spite of all the obstacles and evil machinations of a villain they seem to be falling in love.
Grace Burrowes gives us splendidly nuanced characters wrapped up in superbly written prose. There is sizzling sensuality and build up of sexual tension. You will turn pages quickly to learn if the shameful secrets will lead to the Duke’s disaster.
We can all thank Ms. Burrowes for another entertaining Regency Romance.
