Man of Honour
The Only Thing Worse Than a Forced Marriage...is Falling in Love
When Eliot Crenshaw agreed to drive Laura Lindley to her aunts in London, he didn't expect to end up stranded, unchaperoned—and married. He doesn't believe in love, but he does know his duty. What he doesn't know is how to behave when his marriage of necessity unexpectedly turns into a love match.
Laura Lindley's dreams of her first London season are smashed by a forced marriage to avoid a devastating scandal. But she finds herself devastated instead by her husband's cool and distant behavior. How can she possibly compete with Eliot's dazzling—and vengeful—mistress? Desperate to win his love, the young bride begins a rebellion that had all the ton agog—and her husband forgetting about honor and listening instead to his heart.

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.
