    Book details


Forced to wed to keep her inheritance, independent Lady Jocelyn Kendal finds an outrageous solution: she proposes marriage to Major David Lancaster, an officer dying from his Waterloo wounds. In return for making her his wife, she will provide for his governess sister. But after the bargain is struck and the marriage is made, the major makes a shocking, miraculous recovery. Though they agree to an annulment, such matters take time...time enough for David to realize he is irrevocably in love with his wife. Haunted by her past, Jocelyn refuses to trust the desire David ignites in her. She never counted on a real husband, least of all one who would entice her to be a real wife. But some bargains are made to be broken - and his skilled courtship is impossible to resist...

    I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK IT WAS VERY WELL WRITTEN AND REALISTIC BUT IT TOOK FOREVER FOR THEM TO GET TOGETHER AND WHEN THEY DID THE BOOK ENDED WHICH LEFT ME LONGING FOR MORE BUT A DEFINITE LOVELY READ

    Loved it! I thought that perhaps it could have done without the secondary romance, between Sarah and the doctor, but that's a minor point. This is the first book I've read by this author, and definitely intend to read more. The characters were well-drawn, and the hero, David, is one of those somewhat unnusual regency heroes, in that he's not a wastrel or a rake, but an all-round decent chap. He's never boring and he's got a good sense of humour - he's rather lovely, really! I liked Jocelyn too; rather than being some icy beauty, she's got a heart and a conscience, despite the fact that at the start, all she wants to do is get married to preserve her independence and have an affair with a handsome, rakish duke. The Marriage of Convenience which turns into True Love is one of my favourite tropes and the way that David and Jocelyn fall for each other is beautifully written.A definite keeper.

    One of the reasons why I liked this book is probably shortly coming from a devastating reading experience that had sucked the joy of reading romance out of me, so it may be that anything would have cheered me up, but I am sure that is not the case. While I agree that the slow build up in the H/h romance may not appeal to every reader, that the subplot romance may be more entertaining in its more direct and traditional approach, that the heroine is hardly likeable in more than one passage and attitude, I found the characters to be excellently developed and the romance to be very well written. An invitation to read more of this author
