Vintage (vintagesedona) | 276 comments Looking for HP or other books with the trope where the heroine unknowingly ends up in a MOC. She thinks it's love, but the H has ulterior motives. I'm not looking for the revenge angle as much as the whole duped clueless duckling.

Books like The Sicilian's Marriage Arrangement.

Thanks, Kelly

reeder (reviews) | 69 comments HP/category:
Lucy Monroe does it again in The Sheikh's Bartered Bride
Maya Banks, Tempted ... by Her Innocent Kiss
Miranda Lee, The Billionaire's Bride of Innocence

historical:
Caroline Linden, An Earl Like You
Amanda Quick, Scandal
Suzanne Robinson, Lady Gallant (brutal)

Strictly speaking, I don't think any of these heroines think the hero loves them when they marry; they're just unaware of his ulterior motives.

Jayne Ann Krentz skirts close to this trope in Test Of Time and The Wedding Night

Vintage (vintagesedona) | 276 comments Thanks to you both! I'm in the mood to read about another duped ninny.

StMargarets | 95 comments A Man of Means by Kay Thorpe. Heroine is "in love." Hero is being blackmailed.
