A shy heiress and a well-known rake face a scandal-forced marriage that might be true love in the latest irresistible romance from the national bestselling author of Marry in Haste.
Shy young heiress, Lady Lily Rutherford, is in no hurry to marry. She dreams of true love and a real courtship. But when disaster strikes, she finds herself facing a scandal-forced marriage to her rescuer, Edward Galbraith, a well known rake.
Despite his reputation Lily is drawn to the handsome Galbraith. In the gamble of her life, she agrees to marry him, hoping to turn a convenient marriage into a love match.
As heir to a title, Galbraith knows he must wed, so a convenient marriage suits him perfectly. But there is a darkness in his past, and secrets he refuses to share with his tender-hearted young bride. All Lily’s efforts to get close to him fall on stony ground, and in desperation she retreats to his childhood home–the place he’s avoided for nearly a decade.
Must Lily reconcile herself to a marriage without love? Or will Galbraith realize that this warm-hearted, loving girl is the key to healing the wounds of his past–and his heart?
This is the second book in this series and after reading the first two I am very excited and anxious to read the rest. I am so in love with this family and hope with all my heart that we get to find out what happens to George and Rose and to see if they find their true loves. Lily Rutherford is a character I found so endearing in the first book and I was super excited to find out she is the leading lady in this book. I love that she was able to blossom and become a truly strong character and young lady to be admired. I loved this book and these characters and can’t wait to see what happens next for this incredible family.
