Publisher Description

Mismatched lovers and unexpected attraction catch fire in this timeless Regency romance by the New York Times bestselling author.
 
Forced to wed to keep her inheritance, independent Lady Jocelyn Kendal finds an outrageous solution: she proposes marriage to Major David Lancaster, an officer dying from his Waterloo wounds. In return for making her his wife, she will provide for his governess sister. But after the bargain is struck and the marriage is made, the major makes a shocking, miraculous recovery. Though they agree to an annulment, such matters take time . . . time enough for David to realize he is irrevocably in love with his wife.
 
Haunted by her past, Jocelyn refuses to trust the desire David ignites in her. She never counted on a real husband, least of all one who would entice her to be a real wife. But some bargains are made to be broken—and his skilled courtship is impossible to resist . . .

Loved this!

Slightly different slant on the usual story. Since we all know there will be a happily ever after, it’s fun to get there. And the side romances are sweet.
