5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down!, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blame It on Bath: The Truth About the Duke (Kindle Edition)
I loved this book and will be getting hold of the others in the series asap. I'm not a huge fan of mysteries, but I thought that the one here was done very well indeed, and didn't overshadow the romance.

Marriage of Convenience turns to love is one of my favourite tropes in HR, and this is extremely well done. Katherine approaches Gerard de Lacy and asks him to marry her to prevent her being forced into marriage with her late husband's nephew. Gerard needs to marry an heiress becuase of the possibility that he and his brothers could be declared illegitimate.

Katherine has lived all her life under the domineering thumb of her mother - a beautiful but mean-spirited woman who was forever belittling her. Once married to Gerard, she begins to blossom; and it's this aspect of the book that, for me, turned it into more than "just" another marriage of convenience plot.

Gerard is an incredibly appealing hero - he's very considerate of Kate and treats her with kindness and respect and makes it clear from the start that he wants a proper marriage; which to him means sex, at first! Kate had envisioned their getting to know each other before going to bed together, but her husband had other ideas. The sex scenes in the book are pretty steamy, but not graphic - and the one where Gerard literally seduces Kate's secret out of her... *fans self*.

This was a real page-turner and I didn't feel I needed to have read the earlier book "One Night in London". I'm going to find it now, though, and am looking forward to the final book in the trilogy later this summer!
