Publisher Description

Miss Eris Tumilson longs for a love match. Unfortunately, being a wallflower who spends most of her time reading and doing embroidery isn’t the kind of thing that attracts gentlemen. But, at long last, the spinster gets her chance. Her brother arranges a marriage for her with the Duke of Jowett. When her new husband dies on their wedding night, her hopes are dashed.

Charles would rather focus on his investments than take a wife. But when his friend dies on his wedding night, he knows it’s not from natural causes. His friend was murdered. And he’s sure Eris did it. The problem? He has to prove it since no one believes him. So he comes up with a plan to make Eris believe he’s fallen in love with her.

Little does he realize that as soon as he steps through the doorway of her townhouse, he’ll start to discover that this shy wallflower is a hidden gem among ladies…and it’ll be difficult to tell the difference between pretending to be in love and really being in love.

*Charles originally showed up in Kidnapping the Viscount (Marriage by Fate Series: Book 5).

Froginastorm ,

I’d rate this zero or half a star. Doesn’t even deserve one.

I despised the male lead. So many descriptive words for his personality and behaviour! To me he is the villain in this story. I was going to stop this book several times. I am a fast reader and it still took me nearly two hours to get to page 38. That really should have been my sign to stop. Honestly a chunk of my reasoning to continue was I wanted to see the male lead get slapped or worse for his despicable behaviour. Unfortunately nope. He gets no comeuppance at all and lives happily ever after. The only two characters I liked where Reina and Byron, though I was curious to lean more about Eric/Algernon. But I am definitely not paying to find out more about their stories. Save your time. Read something else. I can’t believe I wasted hours on this book 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
