STORY:Raised in the Dorset countryside, Lady Charlotte Wylder doesn’t care one bit about well-bred decorum. The dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty would rather ride a horse than attend a stuffy ball. So when Charlotte learns that she is to leave immediately for London to wed the Duke of Marchbourne, a perfect model of aristocratic propriety, she is less than enchanted with her arranged marriage.
But to her delight, their first encounters are brazenly flirtatious, and their wedding night burns with passion. March’s broad shoulders and dark countenance make Charlotte want to rip every button off his waistcoast. She may even be falling in love with her new husband. Yet whenever their desire boils over, March reluctantly pushes Charlotte away. Will past secrets and present misunderstandings mire their marriage in scandal, or serve to strengthen a bond that is destined to last a lifetime?
REVIEW: This is my first time reading this author and try as I might, I just couldn’t get into this story. I felt that the story was too rushed and moved too fast with hardly any buildup to the romance.
I also thought the humor in it a bit forced, therefore not too funny, and in the end I couldn’t make up my mind if this story was trying for a comedy or a tragedy.
I will give the second book a try, but if I don’t like that one, I’ll probably not read the third book.
