Was their marriage doomed to fail?

Kasey wondered if Jordan Caine was entirely honest when he said he'd married her in good faith. He claimed he wanted a wife to act as hostess, to manage his home and to warm his bed. He hadn't mentioned that it was also to quench his desire for his brother's wife.

I didn't like the way these two "met" - he had admitted to stalking her because she wasn't interested in him when he arranged an intro prior. She doesn't recognise him, he watches her getting drunk then pounces, she blacks out and wakes up naked with this stranger in his bed.....Ahem lovely and romantic!

Then the ow sister-in-law, he spent too much unexplained time with her. Was not convinced by his explanation or that he wasn't using her(ow) for sex.

Rich girl is distressed that her childhood crush is getting married to another woman for financial gain. She gets drunk and proposes marriage to the hero who rescues her at a bar. Hero is frank about his sexual attraction for the girl but nevertheless manages

Fairly decent older HP. Had all the right elements but just missed it somehow for me. It wasn't bad just somehow not as angsty as I was looking for.
