  • great set

    Mischief and the Marquess by Sylvia Day Lady Sophie has known the Marquess of Fontaine, Justin, since she was a kid. She mistook his sincere protectiveness as aloofness and superiority. So much that when it came time to marry she chose another, never knowing Justin had been in love for years. After her betrothed passes, leaving her with a tattered reputation, she leaves the ton, only to return to visit Justin's family with her grandmother. Knowing its a scheme to get them together, she enlisted Justin's help to show how unsuitable they really are. Problem is the more she tries to show they aren't a match the more she thinks they might be. It is a friends to lovers story and worth the read. The Duke's Treasure by Minerva Spencer The story of Beaumont Halliwell, Duke of Wroxton, and Josephine Loman is a very quick novella. It starts out at their wedding, Joesphine is elated as she has loved the duke for years, secretly of course. The marriage is one of convenience and happens because the Duke needs the money her dowry will provide. It was nice to see them fall in love gradually and was a good cute novella. The Inconvenient Countess by Kristin Vayden Diana Lambson's family is destitute after her father's passing. Willing to do whatever is necessary to take care of her four siblings she agrees to marry Charles Brook, Earl of Barrington. The Earl has led a hard life that has naturally led to a bad reputation, this reputation is what is keeping him from a lucrative business deal. Thus the marriage of convenience is required to bring him respectability. Their love is quickly found, which is a little off-putting as i would like to have seen more hints of it before we were told it was there. But it is a good little novella. Overall I enjoyed the three novellas and look forward to reading more from these authors.

  • Wonderful anthology by some stellar authors

    What a stellar collection of marriage of convenience stories by three excellent author’s. The first story, Mischief and the Marquess by Sylvia Day is an endearing story of second chance at love for two childhood friends after years apart. Perhaps they will get to their HEA, perhaps not. You will have to read this to find out. The Duke’s Treasure by Minerva Spencer was a delightful journey in true Minerva Spencer style. Beau returns from the war to find the Dukedom in dire financial straits. He knows he must marry for money. He picks Jo to marry, Jo, the daughter of a merchant. It’s not long before they notice married life may not be so bad,. Their road to a HEA is a wonderful one. The characters were well developed and likable. It was truly a great read. I enjoyed the story very much. The Inconvenient Countess by Kristen Vayden Charles, Earl of Barrington, needed a wife to give him respectability. . Diana needed a husband to save her impoverished family after her fathers death., can this rake and his “wife” hope for something more from their marriage of convenience? I knew from the start I would love this collaboration of authors. Minerva Spencer is an auto buy for me. I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed all three marriages of convenience stories. Five ⭐️

  • A Wonderful Collection!

    Great collection of three stories that will keep you reading until the end! Mischief and the Marquess by Sylvia Day This is the first I have read by this author and this second chance romance was full of humor and a sizzling attraction. Justin had been so attracted to Sophie when they were younger but misunderstandings had kept them apart. Years later they meet up again and they are in the sights of a matchmaker. Will they find love this time? Fun story. The Duke's Treasure by Minerva Spencer Love Minerva Spencer and knew I would enjoy this story! Wonderful story of marriage of convenience for money! Beau must marry since coming back from war and finding the Dukedom in financial ruin. He decides to marry Jo, the daughter of a merchant and make the best of it. What he doesn't know is that Jo has had a tendre' for him for many years as she saw him out and about! This was such a wonderful story with great characters, a sizzling romance and a great journey to an HEA. Such a great storyline with excellent writing and I could not put it down! The Inconvenient Countess by Kristen Vayden A marriage of convenience between Charles, Earl of Barrington and Diana who was desperate to have help with taking care of her family since their estate was almost destitute since the death of her father. Charles was rake and had lived as such which left his reputation well known. Unfortunately there is a business deal he is counting on and he needs a wife to give him the air of respectability and having given up his wicked ways! As the two come together, something wonderful happens as they become attracted to each other and find that their marriage may not be so bad after all!

  • 3 Steamy Historical Romances

    The Arrangement by Sylvia Day, Minerva Spencer & Kristin Vayden Thoroughly enjoyed this collection of steamy historical romances! MISCHIEF AND THE MARQUESS BY SYLVIA DAY Fun romp that sees two people that were probably meant to be together earlier finally get together in spite of the choices they made earlier in life. My take on this was that the two assumed many things about one another that were not true and once those “things” were dismissed they ended up having much in common allowing themselves the HEA they so richly deserved. THE DUKE’S TREASURE BY MINERVA SPENCER Marrying for money is what Beau must do to fix his recently inherited dukedom. He knows he wants more from marriage than his parents and others of his class have managed so sets out on the path to a happier relationship with Jo than she was expecting. She is feisty and he has a heart of gold. Enjoyed this one. AN INCONVENIENT COUNTESS BY KRISTIN VAYDEN This is probably my favorite. I loved the way this couple found more than they bargained on when their marriage of convenience was arranged. The first laugh in the carriage after the nuptials was so much fun and it only got better from there. I truly enjoyed meeting Brock and Diana and felt they were well matched and would have a happy life together forever. Did I enjoy these stories? Yes Would I read more by these authors? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

  • Arranged to perfection!

    Mischief and the Marquess by Sylvia Day Justin, the Marquess of Fontaine, has been enamored of Lady Sophie Milton-Riley since their childhood. Neither party will admit that feeling is reciprocated, which is a shame, since their families are attempting to nudge them into an alliance. Because of their current situations, Sophie is convinced they'd never suit, and intends to enlist Justin's help in convincing their matchmaking relatives this would never work. But spending some time together might be just the thing they need to ignite that shared spark... Justin and Sophie's attraction is a delicious thing, and Ms Day writes their longing and attraction beautifully. Watching them tumble headlong into this sexy affair will make your heart beat faster and raise your temperature. Definitely a winner! The Duke's Treasure by Minerva Spencer Beaumont Halliwell is the newly minted Duke of Wroxton who has just agreed to marry one Josephine Loman, heiress. His title and status in exchange for her father's deep pockets. Josie knows she's considered no prize--her plain features and plain-speaking generally turn gentlemen away, not draw them nearer. But her father is on his deathbed, and despite herself, she can't help finding Beau incredibly pleasing to the eye. Ms Spencer's marriage-of-convenience, ugly duckling story is a gem. Jo's well aware of her physical lack of "oomph" and recognizes that her fortune is the greater part of her appeal to many in society. Beau for his part can see that he's far from perfect, and Ms Spencer allows us to witness their relationship unfolding and building upon the small concessions and truths and admissions and small kindnesses that allow them to create a foundation relying not on what others see, but on honesty and using their words to construct rather than create walls or tear down. Beau's decision to commit to Jo and to build a relationship unlike many of those around them (including that of his own parents) sets into motion a lovely read, and I look forward to rereading this one as well as catching up on Ms Spencer's other books. The ugly duckling and marriage of convenience conventions are two of my favorites, and the way Ms Spencer has written this story has made it near perfection! An Inconvenient Countess by Kristin Vayden Charles Brook, Earl of Barrington and Miss Diana Lambson come to an agreement--he needs a respectable wife, she needs his funds. Neither wants nor expects more, but both are happily surprised by the mutual respect, friendship, and then more that grows from this simple, business-like arrangement. Brook and Diana don't particularly get along when they first meet, but it's clear neither is a fool nor cruel. Seeing what grows from the seeds of their relationship when watered with kindness and mutual respect is lovely indeed. This is the first I've read of Ms Vayden's work, but I look forward to reading more of it!
