    Fantastic start to a new series!

    The Earl's Countess of Convenience is the first book in author Marguerite Kaye’s newest series “Penniless Brides of Convenience” and what a fantastic start it is! I look forward to reading the rest of the series! Alexander Sinclair has become the Earl of Fearnoch on the death of his only brother. He must marry before his thirtieth birthday or forfeit his inheritance to his cousin an inveterate gambler. Although not interested in the lands or the title, Alexander feels a responsibility to the people and his mother who will be affected. So he arranges a marriage of convenience with a friend’s niece. Eloise Brannagh lives with her twin sisters and their Uncle’s wife, Kate. They’ve lived with Kate ever since their parents and younger brother died in a tragic accident. To accept a marriage of convenience she feels she will gain freedom for herself and her sisters. I really liked Eloise and Alexander from the start. Their experiences from the past keep them from wanting to marry or fall in love. They both went into this marriage of convenience with every intention of keeping it platonic. But there is definitely a spark between them and they struggle to stay away from each other. They were a sweet couple and I couldn’t help but want them to find a way to trust and admit their love for each other. This was a beautifully written story of two people who truly deserved to find love. With wonderful secondary characters that will have their own books in this series, this was a book I enjoyed from start to finish. I enjoyed Ms. Kaye’s writing style and look forward to seeing where she takes the rest of this series!

    Tree Climbing Countess?

    When Eloise Brannagh accepts her uncle's recommendation of a marriage of convenience, she expects her new husband to be old, deformed in some way, or to be completely unappealing. She doesn't expect him to be virilely handsome, young and strong. Why would a man like him choose to marry in such a fashion, when women must be knocking down his door to have a chance with him? Alexander Sinclair never wanted the earldom, but when his brother dies he must marry by his 30th birthday to secure his inheritance. His job requires complete dedication, so a marriage for love is out of the question. He chooses instead a marriage of convenience with his co-worker's niece. He's sure he can withstand any pesky attraction. He can't risk falling in love because the distraction could kill him. He also can't risk leaving a child behind, and with the father he had, he has no wish to be a father. When he meets his bride, however, Eloise is far different from what he expects. Her beauty grabs him, but it is her agile mind that ensnares him. Can he keep his heart intact, and still do his job? I liked this historical from Marguerite Kaye. The main characters were fun, engaging, and so very clueless about matters of the heart. Neither had grown up in a home where their parents were loving or caring in any way, so neither wanted to put their hearts on the line. Some of the situations they get into are pretty funny - how many Regencies have you read where the female lead likes to climb trees? If you like Regency-era romance, pick this one up. The marriage of convenience is well done, as is the mystery surrounding Alex's job.
