From the award-winning author of The Summer Bride comes the first in a charming new historical romance series where marriages of convenience turn into true love matches.
Major Calbourne Rutherford returns to England on the trail of an assassin, only to find he’s become Lord Ashendon, with the responsibility for vast estates and dependent relatives. Cal can command the toughest of men, but his wild half-sisters are quite another matter. They might just be his undoing.
When he discovers that Miss Emmaline Westwood, the girls’ former teacher, guides them with ease, Cal offers her a marriage of convenience. But strong-minded and independent Emm is neither as compliant nor as proper as he expected, and Cal finds himself most inconveniently seduced by his convenient wife.
Emm knows they didn’t marry for love, yet beneath her husband’s austere facade, she catches glimpses of a man who takes her breath away. As pride, duty and passion clash, will these two stubborn hearts find more than they ever dreamed of?
Lately, I have been reading a lot of HR that has left me kinda wanting more and I’m happy to say that Marry in Haste was not one of those books!
This book was sooo good! THIS, This story is why I love Historical Romance so much! I truly couldn’t put it down and have started re-reading it! I adore the characters and the story of their relationship. I love how even though I was expecting certain things to happen in the story, because at some point reading HR things can get predictive, but the author blew that out of the water without being completely predictable. It was fresh and fun and I can’t wait to get the printed version of this book and add it to my personal library!
