4.0 out of 5 stars Charming regency romance, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Admiral's Penniless Bride (Mills & Boon Historical) (Kindle Edition)
A charming and reasonably well written regency romance. The story begins in 1816, a year after the battle of Waterloo.

Sally's life had collapsed when her late husband was framed five years ago for a crime he did not commit. She is struggling to keep body and soul together at the start of the book, having spent almost her last farthing travelllig to a home where a lady's companion was required, only to find that the post is no longer available.

Stranded and penniless Sally is wondering what to do when retired admiral Sir Charles Bright sees her and takes pity on her.

His sisters have been pressing him to marry but the idea of life with any of the candidates they are trying to foist on him seems unbearable. Something about Sally makes him offer marriage to her instead - initially as a marriage in name only.

Sally is astonished but in no position to say no, and soon, to their mutual surprise, they start to build a life together. But Sally has a secret about who she really is - and if it comes out, the feelings growing between herself and Charles may soon be crushed ...

Amusing if implausible story with some good humour and enjoyable characters. If you like regency romances and are not too bothered about plausibility or a wealth of precise historical detail you may well enjoy this.
