Description from Amazon:
It was the ideal marriage of convenience…until they met
Cassandra DeWitt has seen her husband only once—on their wedding day two years earlier—and this arrangement suits her perfectly. She has no interest in the rude, badly behaved man she married only to secure her inheritance. She certainly has no interest in his ban on her going to London. Why, he’ll never even know she is there.
Until he shows up in London too, and Cassandra finds herself sharing a house with the most infuriating man in England.
Joshua DeWitt has his life exactly how he wants it. He has no need of a wife disrupting everything, especially a wife intent on reforming his behavior. He certainly has no need of a wife who is intolerably amiable, insufferably reasonable … and irresistibly kissable.
As the unlikely couple team up to battle a malicious lawsuit and launch Cassandra’s wayward sister, passion flares between them. Soon the day must come for them to part … but what if one of them wants their marriage to become real?
This would have been 5-stars if only Joshua had not come across as such a bully. Yes, he was redeemed by the love of a good woman but still he was rather annoyingly obstinate. Cassandra was a strong take-charge type because the tending of her late father’s estate fell to her and she also had to deal with her wild sister and a recalcitrant sister because her mother was a depressive and a drug addict. She was used to dealing with difficult people and situations so a husband who was also difficult was just one more problem. That Mia Vancy was deftly able to get these two opposite personalities to fall in love was sheer brilliance.
I listened to this audiobook narrated by the very capable Kate Reading. She is very good at changing voices for each character and does a wonderful job of the male voices. I can highly recommend this audio book for content and narration. At this writing the audiobook is priced at a very affordable $1.99.
