Book Description

A Regency Romance. Tenth Anniversary Edition

Unless Philip, Lord Pemberton, could arrange a six-month marriage he would lose his inheritance. But how could he find a respectable young lady to go along with such a scheme?

Madeline Delaware was desperate to escape from her dissolute uncle and Philip's offer saved her from the fate her uncle had in store for her.

But the six-month marriage turned out to be far from the peaceful interlude that Madeline had envisaged. And although it was simply a convenient arrangement, she found it increasingly difficult to think of its end . . .

Amanda Grange: Humour, adventure and romance, with a guaranteed happy ending.

Review
"The added dimension of Philip's involvement with espionage gives a frisson of adventure to this most engaging Regency." -Rachel A Hyde, MyShelf.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! 31 Dec. 2012
By Sophie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised. I was a bit skeptical about this one being as it was about a convenient marriage. But, I really enjoyed it :) I loved the hero and heroine, the heroine in particular and how she grew and developed through the story. The plot was great and kept me hooked and it has become one of my favourites of Amanda Grange's stories :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable regency tale with a dash of intrigue 16 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Madeline is desperate; her vile uncle can't touch her dowry, but he can marry her off to whomever he pleases as payment for his gambling debts. Philip is on the lookout for a bride - he has chosen Miss Letitia Blight as a suitable society bride for himself but his father's will won't allow him to inherit until he has been married for six months to somebody other than Letitia. He decides that the way out is becoming married and then later having the marriage annulled on the grounds of non-consummation and compensating his bride financially. Philip meets Madeline as she tries to escape from her uncle and decides that she would fit the part. Madeline is deeply distrustful of men and worried about the power that a marriage would give a man over her but reasons that Philip will have to treat her well while he still needs her to keep up her end of the six month arrangement. I'm sure you can see where this story is going, but the fun is in experiencing the journey, not being surprised by the destination.

You can't help but sympathise with Madeline, she is escaping an awful situation and isn't best pleased with marrying Phillip. I was a bit sceptical about anybody being willing to ruin their future marriage prospects but Madeline is in an awful situation and is vehemently against marrying again and risking being under a man's power.

Phillip's determination to marry Letitia is less understandable because he can clearly see that she is a piece of work.

The romance is very sweet. It would be much shorter if the characters would only talk to each other but to be fair the author reasons this away quite well. Where this story loses out for me is that there are a number of places where I thought things were a bit unrealistic or rushed but on the whole I enjoyed this book and I'd read it again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet romance with pleasant H&h 4 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pleasant tale, some what far fetched but entertaining.
The h&H are appealing, this is a clean read and the sweet romance develops at a gentle pace.
There's a touch of adventure and intrigue added to the mix and the Yorkshire setting is well portrayed.
The premise of the tale, a temporary marriage of convenience is without foundation in fact. Annulments were harder to achieve in Regency times than even divorces were. Philip would have had to be proven unable to consummate, i.e.suffering from impotence and men who made such claims would be thoroughly examined before they were believed. So, no annulment would have been possible.
Still though, it's a pleasing bit of above average fluff.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really nice story 12 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised by this story.

The heroine Madeline, escaping from her wicked uncle who wants to use her as bargaining chip to clear his debts, enters in to a marriage of convenience with Philip to allow him to claim his inheritance. In the course of their six month marriage, they fall in love, but the path to their ultimate happiness is not smooth - but then it never is! The characters were interesting and well developed and there were enough twists and turns to keep me reading.

I will look for other stories from this author.
