An Englishwoman is married off to her crush for the wrong reasons in this Regency romance by the USA Today–bestselling author of the Clan Kendrick series.
Their marriage was convenient…
Simon St. James, fifth Earl of Trask, knows he could do worse in the marriage of convenience department. Sophie Stanton may be a bit of a social liability, with her ungovernable ways and flighty nature, but Simon has responsibilities as an earl that far outweigh happiness in the household. And as for happiness in the bedroom…he has to admit he sees Sophie's potential in that arena…
Their passion was not!
But Sophie isn't some bargaining chip to be traded, and she's not about to let Simon St. James tell her how to live her life—even though she has nurtured a crush on the handsome young earl for as long as she can remember. If his idea of courtship is telling her what to do, then she is not interested, or at least she is trying not to be. But when his scolding words turn to scorching kisses, suddenly Sophie starts paying attention…
