I am in love with these historical Romance reads that I keep grabbing up! Anne Gracie is going to be a new favorite of mine!
I adore not only her writing style, but also her characters. This is book two in the series but I dove in with no problem.
This story follows Lily. She really wanted true love, but in the end a marriage to Edward is where she ended up. While he is closed up and cold, all is takes is one kiss to change everything.
LOVE the slow fizzle in this. I ended up loving all of the characters and really falling for these two! Throw in the little bits of the past that had to be felt with and I felt like I couldn't help but continue to fall for this story.
A shy heiress and a well-known rake face a scandal-forced marriage that might be true love in the latest irresistible romance from the national bestselling author of Marry in Haste.
Shy young heiress, Lady Lily Rutherford, is in no hurry to marry. She dreams of true love and a real courtship. But when disaster strikes, she finds herself facing a scandal-forced marriage to her rescuer, Edward Galbraith, a well known rake.
Despite his reputation Lily is drawn to the handsome Galbraith. In the gamble of her life, she agrees to marry him, hoping to turn a convenient marriage into a love match.
As heir to a title, Galbraith knows he must wed, so a convenient marriage suits him perfectly. But there is a darkness in his past, and secrets he refuses to share with his tender-hearted young bride. All Lily's efforts to get close to him fall on stony ground, and in desperation she retreats to his childhood home—the place he's avoided for nearly a decade.
Must Lily reconcile herself to a marriage without love? Or will Galbraith realize that this warm-hearted, loving girl is the key to healing the wounds of his past—and his heart?
