She holds the key to more than a fortune…
There’s more to love than meets the eye…
The daughter of a wealthy merchant, Sophia Russell has no interest in marriage, especially after a recent humiliation-and especially not to Maximilian, Marquess of Devereaux. But it’s the only way to save herself from fortune hunters-and those who wish to seize a powerful connection she prefers to keep secret-even from her future husband…
Marrying Sophia is the only way Max can regain the wealth his father squandered on an extravagant country palace. And while Max and his bride are civil, theirs is clearly a marriage of convenience-until a family enemy takes a questionable interest in Sophia-one that may lead all the way to the throne. Forced to become allies in a battle they hadn’t foreseen, the newlyweds soon grow closer-and discover a love, and a passion, they never expected…
“Lynne Connolly writes Georgian romances with a deft touch. Her characters amuse, entertain and reach into your heart. This book is a Must Read.” –Desiree Holt
#2 in #The Emperors of London”, but can be read as a stand alone. Once again Ms. Connolly has written a tale of secrets,passion, longing, desperation, and romance. Can a marriage of convenience turn into a marriage of respect, trust and love?
The H/H are a good match. A heroine with intelligence, wit, strong will and determination. A hero who is desperate to save his family’s property finds himself falling in love with his wife, whom he actually respects and likes. But there are outside forces determined to destroy their HEA. Secrets could either tear them apart or bring them closer together.
Once again, Ms Connolly has written a delightful tale of a marriage of convenience with a few twists and turns. An enjoyable and satisfying read and one I would recommend to fans Historical Romance. I truly enjoyed reading “Temptation Has Green Eyes”.
