It was the ideal marriage of convenience...until they met

Cassandra DeWitt has seen her husband only once--on their wedding day two years earlier--and this arrangement suits her perfectly. She has no interest in the rude, badly behaved man she married only to secure her inheritance. She certainly has no interest in his ban on her going to London. Why, he'll never even know she is there.

Until he shows up in London too, and Cassandra finds herself sharing a house with the most infuriating man in England.

Joshua DeWitt has his life exactly how he wants it. He has no need of a wife disrupting everything, especially a wife intent on reforming his behavior. He certainly has no need of a wife who is intolerably amiable, insufferably reasonable ... and irresistibly kissable.

As the unlikely couple team up to battle a malicious lawsuit and launch Cassandra's wayward sister, passion flares between them. Soon the day must come for them to part ... but what if one of them wants their marriage to become real?

Hilarious, heartrending, and hot, this historical romance set in Regency London tells the story of a marriage of convenience between opposites.

    (4.5 stars) I believe every author I follow has at least one "Marriage of Convenience" romance in their body of work, and I've always enjoyed that trope. The usual inequality of the pairing--whether o...

    Glorious fun. There's quite a serious plot here about damaged people dealing with hurt and loss, and a very strong theme of how we can't fix things for other people and love does not paper over all cr...

    I have not read an excellent Historical Romance book in a long time. This was the perfect book to escape with (I chose to listen to the audio) in these uncertain times. I love how Goodreads and my fri...

    This had an interesting setup. And I liked Cassandra. Mostly. And it had enough humor, along with decent banter, to keep me going to the end. But it also had a lot of awful people bogging it down and ...
