I'm impressed at how well written this story was. And I also loved that it didn't follow the typical pattern of romantic novels where the characters love is instant and unexplainable. I really liked how the author knitted the story to be a reflection of what true love is.

I really liked Trent. What a sweetheart and caring man! Adelaide, not so much. The author painted her to be quite mousy. She really hadn't much personality nor did she contribute much to conversations she was part of.
It was an interesting book, with a very interesting storyline. I liked that it was more 'unique' than other romances.

Excellent book. This book kept me turning the pages. I found it to be a witty book and at the same time kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next. This book is about a marriage of convenience.
Lord Trent is handsome, wealthy, cultured and extremely cautious of ever getting too close to women. He has a biblical world-view, and therefore avoids situations that he feels would not make the Lord proud of him. He does not give the gossips any fuel. However, he is a charmer and loved by most of the aristocracy.
So when his curious nature leads him to investigate a strange horse and singing coming from a dilapidated building on his property, the last thing he expects is to wind up married to a stranger!
How in the world can he find love that way? The kind of love his family holds so dear.
Lady Adelaide Bell is a klutzy, glasses-wearing, second daughter and of little importance or value to her over-barring mother. Adelaide has learned how to fade into the background, find comfort in books, and have low expectations of life. However, when her circumstances force her into an unplanned marriage with a man she knows nothing about, how will she ever navigate her new life and the constant questions along with self-doubt she constantly feels.
In the beginning of the book neither Lady Adelaide and Lord Trent know how to act around each other and their marriage isn't working out. So Trent decides he is going to move out and live with his brother and court Adelaide.
