Now the only thing wrong is that Clare didn't know that Zeus was in love with her, she thought he was joking with her, I mean could you take anyone seriously when they are laughing at you and then propose marriage, no I didn't think so. But what Zeus didn't know was that Clare who was sixteen at the time was in love with him.
So as you would gather, the young love didn't progress further, but it would be a number of years later when Zeus would find out the truth.
I really shouldn't keep calling the Marquess of Rawcliffe Zeus, but for me I think the name suits him. If you have read the first book then you will know how Zeus and his friends got their names.
So when Clare and Zeus meet again, Clare now is on her way to employment organised by her brother Clement, who is a clergy man. Now Clare doesn't have one brother she has two older brothers, and would they take her in when there father died oh no, even the new reverend who took over the vicarage turfed out.
So its at a inn that Zeus and Clare meet again. But things don't go to plan. Now from here I don't want to reveal too much only that Clare punches Zeus on the nose and from here again Zeus proposes and Clare has no choice but to accept.
Clare is wonderful, and I loved how she can stick up for herself especially with Zeus, now underneath that hard exterior Zeus does have a heart, and it was so lovely seeing the man he becomes.
I loved every second of this book and it was a great sequel, and I'm so looking forward to the next book. If you liked reading the first book then you will love this one.
I will give this book 5/5 stars. The book is on pre-order and is available to buy from 25th January at Amazon and all other retailers.
I received this ARC from the author, in return for a honest review.
Utterly fantastic, I am truly grateful for the chance to read this awesome book as well as its sister book, though they can be read as stand alones I highly advise reading them as a series in order, that way you get all the pieces of the mystery which is entwined with these beautiful stories of our heroes and heroines.
As always I will not give spoilers, but I will say, this book has everything from giggles to being enraged for our hero and heroine, mystery adventure and a villan you cheerfully could smack into next week (I know I would). I very much love Clare and Roberts story and cannot wait to read the next as I'm so wanting to see how things enfold in our next book.
Thank you dear lady for writing this awesome book and the honour of reading it. XxX

Clare’s father has passed away and she needs to find a new home. Her brother is a curate but claims that there is no room for her in his home. As she is heading to find a job and waiting for a coach at an inn, she sees Rawcliffe. His remarks anger her so that she punches him in the nose. When people notice what she has done, he calls her his fiancee. He puts her in his coach and takes her to London. There, he leaves her with his friend, Lady Harriet, while he procures a marriage license. Harriet is to marry Lord Jack Becconsall, nicknamed Ulysses.
Rawcliffe and Clare are married at the same time as Harriet and Jack. As Clare tries to get to know and understand Rawcliffe, she finds that he talks down to her which hurts and angers her. She is unsure how to go on with him as he is so hurtful to her.
When he tells her about a smuggling operation going on and being organized by a clergyman, she wants to learn more. But it may be too dangerous for her to do so.
Good grief. This Rawcliffe guy is a total jerk. Clare is much too trusting and she should have sent him packing when he called her his fiancee. I did not care for this story and wanted to smack both of them.

Robert Walmer, the Marquess of Rawcliffe meets the quick tempered Clare Cottam, the woman he's always loved, by happenstance in an inn. Clare, in badly dyed mourning clothes, is off to be a noble woman's companion after the death of her father. And now here she is, confronted by her nemesis, desperately hiding her secret love for him. No wonder she hauls off and punches him. Rawcliffe takes the opportunity to declare that they must we'd to avoid a public scandal. Right from their wedding night it seems that these two are more attuned than was thought. In fact their bedroom antics do take up rather a lot of space in the novel. But there are other happenings afoot including the death of one of Rawcliffe 's friends. And it seems Clare might be the key to unlocking that mystery.
The ending has us poised on the edges of the cliff. That's a problem for me as a reader. I would like some resolution of the problem. Despite this I enjoyed the Rawcliffe and Clare's story. I am looking forward to the next in this series.
A NetGalley ARC
This steamy, marry for reputation historical romance is a well crafted growth of a relationship based on a misunderstanding. When it gets cleared up I yelled in triumph. I felt for both of the main characters, especially when they are irritated with the other. If a man liking a woman because she is cute when angry makes you mad, you will not enjoy this. There is a lot of banter that becomes hurtful.
It was unsatisfying that the take down of the villain wasn't in this story. Maybe it will be in another book that will use a side character from this one.
