About the book:

Life for Lady Adelaide Bell was easier if she hid in her older sister’s shadow–which worked until her sister got married. Even with thepressure of her socially ambitious mother, the last thing she expected was a marriage of convenience to save her previously spotless reputation.

Lord Trent Hawthorne couldn’t be happier that he is not the duke in the family. He’s free to manage his small estate and take his time discovering the life he wants to lead, which includes grand plans of wooing and falling in love with the woman of his choice. When he finds himself honor bound to marry a woman he doesn’t know, his dream of a marriage like his parents’ seems lost forever.

Already starting their marriage on shaky ground, can Adelaide and Trent’s relationship survive the pressures of London society?

My Review:

The lovely cover draws you into the character before you even pick up the story. Marriage in a rush, based on rumors begins this tale.

I found myself pulled in as it was not your typical “marriage of convenience” story. The familiar characters were manipulated by those in charge and I found I related to that. In this case, the couple decided to work to court and have a relationship before actually acting on being married. I found that refreshing, although not totally realistic.  Men are generally not that honorable. Trent is the ideal gentleman and will keep you reading until the end, while you laugh over his “pineapple” dreams as well. The snappy wit of the the lady, kept me chuckling to myself as well.
