  • Wow, what a fantastic surprise!

    I've been reading a lot of historical romances and after awhile they tend to blend together BUT this book is the exception. Marriage of convenience stories can be one of my favourite tropes to read about which is why it can be hard to find new and fresh interpretations. However, Vincy has created one of the best marriage of convenience stories I have read. If you love stores with a surly hero, witty dialogue and a cast of characters that leap off the page, then you need to get your hands on this book. I could not put it down. A great debut novel and I can't wait to read more from this author!

  • 4.5*

    The plot is quite simple but enjoyable, and I was captivated by the storytelling. Just a couple of chapters in and I already really, really liked the main characters' voices, they're hilarious! Going on, they revealed depth and many facets; and the romance unraveled beautifully. There's not really a focus on period, no specific dates, but from fashion, hairstyles and mentions of specific historical details, I think it is settled in the first 2 decades of 19th century.

  • Excellent

    I really enjoyed this historical romance. The banter between the two main characters was the best I've ever read and had me laughing out loud in spots. A solid 4.5 stars out of 5. Recommended.

  • Engaging second chance historical romance

    Cassandra DeWitt entered into a marriage of convenience to secure her family's home following the death of their only brother. Her bridegroom, Joshua DeWitt is the illegitimate son of a member of the nobility following a bigamous marriage. He has made his fortune in commerce and is received by society but is notorious for his rudeness. Following their wedding night Joshua left Cassandra and they have led separate lives ever since. He lives in London and Birmingham, she lives at her family's ancestral home with her two sisters and mother. Cassandra determines that her younger sister needs to be presented at court and determines to come to London to entreat her paternal grandmother to make the presentation, despite her husband's instructions to stay at home. Of course there is the excruciating moment where Joshua and Cassandra meet at a society event, neither recognising the other. This is sort of beauty and the beast - although in this case Cassandra is someone who makes friends everywhere whereas Joshua is antisocial. As Joshua and Cassandra live together in London they must confront the truth about the circumstances surrounding their arranged marriage and their own unresolved feelings towards former relationships. Overall, I really enjoyed this. Joshua and Cassandra were engaging characters and there were sufficient plots and side plots to keep my attention. My only criticism is that both Joshua and Cassandra were constantly second-guessing the other's words and actions, you know 'he says he wants me to stay, but does he really mean it or is he just being polite?' Not once or twice but constantly. I wanted to shake them. Recommended by Ilona Andrews so therefore I bought it immediately.
