    Merely a Marriage

    Lady Ariana Boxstall is frightened. She's afraid that if her somewhat reckless brother doesn't marry and produce an heir soon, that he'll end up dead and she and her mother will be left in the hands of a cruel cousin. Ariana Boxstall may or may not be overreacting. Death is on everyone's minds and she wants to make sure her family is secure. She strikes a deal with her brother that he will marry soon, but she has to marry first....and she's not really the debutante anymore. Her first season was a disaster, and she's not looking forward to going on a new husband hunt. As a taller than average woman, she does not fit into the ton's status quo. I enjoyed Lady Ariana a lot. She was intelligent and curious, but also afraid to make waves with it by being too open. She was insecure and confident at the same time. She was a real person, with numerous faults balance by lovely personality attributes and a true caring about those close to her. This is balanced out by the Earl of Kynaston, who is not exactly what he appears at first (of course). Their rocky "friendship" was an entertaining development that will keep you wondering when they'll both get their heads of the sand and realize they're perfect for each other. There's a good scandal (of course - but who doesn't love a good scandal) and suddenly things start to fall into place. Merely a Marriage was a fun and quick read with some engaging side characters that just might need their own story if they don't have one already. **I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book**

    Wonderful Story

    I approached this book with trepidation, knowing it was the last time I would read a new book by Jo Beverley.... I took my time reading it (4 days) so I could savour it as it deserves to be. Jo has written a wonderful heroine who will remain as one of my favourite characters of hers... I love all the relationships in the book and her maid Ethel in a perfect world would have a book of her own.

    A pleasant read

    I enjoyed this - not as good as her previous books, however that's understandable. She showed her usual grasp of the pressures and restrictions of the period
