STORY: Delaney McFarland is on the hunt for a husband—preferably one who needs her embarrassingly large dowry more than a dutiful wife. After the unspeakable incident at her debut, Delaney knows marrying for love is off the table, but a marriage of convenience—one that leaves her free to live the life she chooses—is the next best thing, never mind what that arrogant, devilishly handsome Mr. Croft thinks. Delaney plans to marry for money . . . or not at all.
Ever since the fiery redhead burst into his life—in a most memorable way—Griffin Croft hasn’t been able to get Miss McFarland out of his mind. Now, with the maddening woman determined to hand over her fortune to a rake, Griffin knows he must step in. He must help her. He must not kiss her. But when Griffin’s noble intentions flee in a moment of unexpected passion, his true course becomes clear: tame Delaney’s wild heart and save her from a fate worse than death . . . a life without love.
REVIEW: In this third book of Ms. Lorrett’s Wallflower Weddings series we meet two people that are so not suited, and yet they do end up together.
Delaney and Griffin Croft had a “one of a kind” first encounter that he all but forgot about, but she couldn’t because it almost ruined her reputation.
After a year, in which our heroine goes out of her way to never run into our hero, and after her family is adamant that she marry, she is considering a marriage of convenience only because it would grant her somewhat of a freedom she so craves.
Griffin is such a romantic! He yearns for one of a kind love and hopes to find it soon because his family is pressuring him to marry and produce the heir.
Once he starts running into a woman that a year ago vomited on him, he begins to see her in a different light and the more intrigued he is by this stubborn woman.
This was such a fun and delightful read! I loved the chemistry and banter between these two characters. It was also a fast and entertaining read. Hope you give it a try.
