Hardly a Husband
What’s a gentleman to do when a lady demands that he seduce her?
Jarrod, fifth Marquess of Shepherdston, gets the shock of his life when childhood friend Sarah Eckersley shows up on his doorstep one rainy night with a tempting proposition. The daughter of the village rector, Sarah is desperate for money and has decided that becoming a courtesan is her only hope for saving her family. And she wants Jarrod to teach her the art of seduction.
As the leader of the Free Fellows League, Jarrod is wary of a marriage trap. He agrees only to help Sarah find a husband—but soon finds himself bristling at the thought of any other man touching her creamy skin or kissing her luscious lips.
He reluctantly offers Sarah a marriage of convenience, in which he will be hardly a husband—until his heart decides otherwise…

Not as good as the previous books in the series. Some of the paragraphs seemed to be lifted verbatim from prior books, and the honeymoon was glossed over.
