Another interesting one- but when will these silly women get that their rich lover boy is actually interested in them? They're almost always thinking that they're not interested, lol. I liked the story line for this one, and I have another few books similar to this one, so I'm looking forward to reading them.

I decided to read this book because of the Harlequin Manga that I had read.

Because of her little brother's gambling addiction, young Catherine now finds herself shouldering a five-thousand-pound debt. Arthur advises her that if she were to marry a death-row inmate the debt would be absolved, and that it would be better than becoming the mistress of an old nobleman. With no other options left, she goes to the prison. She actually follows through and ends up marrying an unshaven, scary-looking man

Shelves: m-f, historical
2,5 stars.
But rounded up to 3 for... let's say, for Nick's patience (lol).

I was having a fairly quiet and can't-get-out-of-bed day and this book was a good companion. It was entertaining and light-hearted, a very easy read. Yes, Kat definitely needed to get over her enormous sense of pride, and I enjoyed the Duke quietly calling her on it. I enjoyed seeing Nick slowly woo her. They made a delightful couple and I found it a fun read.
