A rugged and ruined naval officer comes to claim his bride in an unforgettable tale of love, revenge and redemption from the national bestselling author of Marry in Scandal.
Lady Rose Rutherford—rebel, heiress, and exasperated target of the town's hungry bachelors—has a plan to gain the freedom she so desperately desires: she will enter into a marriage of convenience with the biggest prize on the London marriage mart.
There's just one problem: the fierce-looking man who crashes her wedding to the Duke of Everingham — Thomas Beresford, the young naval officer she fell in love with and secretly married when she was still a schoolgirl. Thought to have died four years ago he's returned, a cold, hard stranger with one driving purpose—revenge.
Embittered by betrayal and hungry for vengeance, Thomas will stop at nothing to reclaim his rightful place, even if that means using Rose—and her fortune—to do it. But Rose never did follow the rules, and as she takes matters into her own unpredictable hands, Thomas finds himself in an unexpected and infuriating predicament: he's falling in love with his wife....
Marry in secret
Loved this book loved the characters Rose is great loved Thomas the his story and her whole family is fun this series is really good I hope George's story is coming
Our budget is beyond tight, so I read samples and often pick books by authors who won’t disappoint. This book was good even among other Anne Gracie books. The characters were fascinating, especially the hero who comes into the story by dramatically stopping a wedding.
I found it very realistic which really adds to the enjoyment of the book. If you can believe the story, it really takes you on a journey. This is a terrific series, and I’m so glad I’ve purchased them all so far. Definitely worth every penny and more.
