What a Gentleman Wants
When an upstanding Duke and a desperate young widow are caught in a con, they both wind up losing their hearts in this “elegantly written” Regency romance (Booklist).
Marcus Reese, Duke of Exeter, has spent most of his life pulling his twin brother out of trouble—without even so much as a thank you. Instead, his resentful sibling forges his name to a marriage license and presents Marcus with an unwanted wife. A vicar’s widow with a mind of her own, she’s the first person in Marcus’s well-ordered life to make him feel . . . completely out of control.
Dire straits have led Hannah to the altar with a gentleman she hardly knows. Played for a fool, she’s embarrassed, furious, and worse, married to an equally outraged, exasperating man. Reluctantly, Hannah agrees to play the wife until he can sort out the mess. But the undeniably attractive Duke unsettles her well-guarded heart—making her want to do so much more than “act” the role of blissful bride . . .
Good story lack luster intimacy
The story is good for historical romance. A strong heroine and an arrogantly strong hero. However the few intimate scenes lack description and appeal. Left me wanting.
🥰 loved it
I really loved this story
I almost skipped this one
I read the sample but not the description. I was disappointed when it looked like David would be the hero. It was a week later that I finally came back to this book and realized I was wrong.
It’s a good book with likable characters and a solid B story. If you like steamy, this one takes a little longer than usual to heat up. I liked it, though.
