Publisher's Summary

His lawfully dreaded wife…

When disaster strikes, Marianne Bray finds herself in quite a mess, and the most important things in the world are at stake: her family name and her reputation. Desperation leads to a solution she cannot bear, but she has no choice. She must bind herself to a man who can protect her, save her, and, more importantly, tolerate her. Unfortunately for her, that man is Kit Gerrard.

Her awfully wedded husband...

Kit knew he ought to have left Marianne to her fate, which was no more than she deserved, but he’d always had a weakness where she was concerned, so there was no alternative but to save her and sacrifice himself in the process. With his heart at risk, he takes her, swearing to harden himself against the one woman he’s always wanted, and prays it will be enough. But before long, he realizes he may be the one in need of saving.

It's a fun and clean series. I was so invested in the lives of all the characters.

This is easily my favorite book in the series.

The characters are easier to swallow. This book isn't filled with prideful, self loathing, self sacrificing, self righteous boobs who cant have an actual conversation. No "I love you but I dont deserve you because I married someone who treated me badly and squandered our fortunes"
I have enjoyed all the books so far but this one is way better if you're over all the idiocy.

Drawn out plot

Like pretty much all of the books in the series, the plot is far too drawn out. Sweet stories but they really should not be more than a few hours long...this plot in particular was a bit boring to be drawn out so long. Would love abridged versions to be available.

A Book Worth Listening

I was pleasantly surprised how enjoyable this final (well, kind of final) book ended up being. We have seen hints and foreshadowing regarding this relationship more than any other relationship, so I was worried it would not deliver in its full telling. However, Connolly delivered a satisfying, dynamic and winning novel.

While some parts felt reminiscent of some of the previous stories (namely Book 2), it still managed to differentiate itself. I very much enjoyed the development of both characters and their relationship. It felt, in some ways, a more realistic telling of how difficult it is for people to truly change.

Stupid

Seriously, This was the same chapter repeated about 20 times. “Act like a jerk, I’m sorry, act like a jerk.” Then repeat.

Enjoyed it despite.

I felt like I wanted to slap the main characters, or at least give them a good shake. But this only proves what an interesting writer the author is. There were anachronisms, but I tend to be forgiving. It was a thumping good story.

The Best

The ebb and tide of this story narrated so well by JEB makes it the best, so far, in this series! Totally enjoyed it.

reread ... still good

I really enjoyed re-listening to this book. easy narration, flowing prose. a few too many babies at the end.
