An excellent read. Well-constructed, and there's nothing like a good grovelling from a hero.
All's well, after a spy or two, the Kama Sutra, and fireworks

This is a sweet book, with a couple well-handled love scenes that aren't going to embarrass anyone. It begins with the total creep fathers of our heroine and hero to be gambling long after they should have stopped. In the end, the hero (third son of an earl), ends up getting married to the heroine, at this time very young, and small, bundled into her mother's wedding dress (multiple sizes too large). Alex (the hero) promptly leaves for
It was ok.

I don't know what it was about this book. I couldn't get into this book. I would read a few pages then leave and then come back k a few days later. Aroura was very annoying and the ways she thought she was superior in her thinking. Alex while very sweet was very different than what I had in mind for a seasoned veteran on his, last mission.
I liked the plot but I'm not a fan of how the story was told.
Main Characters:
Aurora Sprague - Forced into a marriage when she was underage to a young man she had never known prior to the wedding
Alex Woodmore - The man Aurora married

Alex and Aurora were forced to marry by their fathers when they were both very young. Alex left and joined the army. Aurora and her ex-governess moved to a small house and set up a The Sprague Agency for Distressed Females (a business they use to help women in bad circumstances).

Alex and Aurora meet again years later w

A marriage of convenience, arranged by their fathers, is decidedly inconvenient for the young couple, who immediately part. When their paths cross years later, neither knows the other's identity until after they've fallen in love.
No thanks. Too graphic!

I started creating books at the age of five, or so my mother tells me. And she has the proof—a neatly penciled story, the pages lavishly illustrated with full color crayon drawings of horses and bound with staples—to back up her claim. I have since moved on from Westerns to writing about Regency England, a time and place that has captured my imagination ever since I opened the covers of Pride and ...more
