There’s only one man she’s afraid to fall in love with—her husband
Eliot Crenshaw knew that it was his familial duty to marry a respectable lady. And when he’s stuck in an inn with Laura Lindley for three days— unchaperoned—he decides to do the honorable thing: save her reputation and marry her. He doesn’t believe in love anyway, and Laura’s a pretty, suitable choice for him. Laura, however, always pictured herself marrying for love, and is unsatisfied with her unconsummated marriage. When Eliot’s spurned mistress steps into the picture and tries to ruin Laura, will Eliot realize how much he loves her before it’s too late?
More insipid characters
Another wasted effort. This is the third time I've tried to give Jane Ashford romances a chance but in Laura here is yet another insipid character who is witless and has no real depth to her. Yet another blackmail scheme threatens this marriage and yet another annoying attempt to save their marriage and one dimensional love by not communicating and not confiding their concerns to one another and not being the least bit logical. Can't stand irrational stupid characters. Here is yet another book full of them.
