Spirited Briony Winters can’t believe her ears! Her beloved godmother’s will pushes her into marriage – with notorious rake Luke Kingsley. But when her wickedly handsome husband-to-be promises not to claim his rights, Briony takes a deep breath and says, ‘I do…’ Luke is used to having secrets, and he’s keeping his true reasons for marrying Briony hidden.
Let her believe him merely another spoilt, indebted rakehell. Yet it’s increasingly hard to hide his real self from his ever more inquisitive wife…
A Mills & Boon regency romance involving a marriage of convenience in name only while both parties have their reasons for agreeing to it things never turn out quite as planned.
Romance, deception and intrigue all perfect elements of a regency romance along with a spirited heroine and a super sexy male counterpart. One thing noticeably absent from this book is sex, the protagonists don’t even touch each other until the end and even then that is behind closed doors. Not really a problem though, it just allows you to leave it up to your imagination but I do like a bit of romantic tension build up though and that was lacking a bit in this one.
I really enjoy reading Mills and Boon romances, regency ones in particular. You know how it will end, it is the getting there that is unknown and this one does not disappoint. I am just a sappy romantic at heart.
