“[A] rich and passionate tale.” (Romantic Times)
“Touches every emotion.” (Julia Quinn)
From the Back Cover
A marriage of convenience . . . or of destiny?
Gerard de Lacey is determined to find the man who is blackmailing his family, but with his inheritance and status at risk, a hasty marriage to a wealthy bride also seems in order—just in case things take a turn for the worse. Charismatic and capable, Gerard knows he can win the hand of any lady he chooses. Still, he's not expecting a rich widow to find him and propose the very thing he wants: a marriage of convenience.
Katherine Howe's first marriage was one of dreary duty. Now that she's being pressured to marry her late husband's heir, she's desperate for a better option. Gerard de Lacey, with his sinful good looks, charming manner, and looming scandal, fits her needs perfectly. The fact that she's nursed a secret affection for him only makes it better—and worse. Because Gerard will likely marry her for her fortune—but can he love her for herself, as she loves him?See all Product description

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!
This is down , mostly to the main female character and her courage throughout the story. I did not read the other book prior to this book. I will remedy this now.
