About:

Lord Trent Hawthorne couldn’t be happier he is not the duke in the family. Free to manage his small estate and take his time discovering the life he wants to lead, he has grand plans of someday wooing and falling in love with the woman of his choice. When he finds himself honor bound to marry a woman he barely knows, his dream of a loving marriage like his parents’ seems lost forever.

Life for Lady Adelaide Bell was easier when she hid in her older sister’s shadow–which worked until her sister got married. But even with her socially ambitious mother’s focus entirely on her, the last thing she expected was a marriage of convenience before she’s been introduced to society.

With nothing going as expected, can Trent and Adelaide’s marriage of obligation survive their own missteps and the pressures of London society to grow into a true meeting of hearts and minds?

My thoughts and giveaway:

Kristi is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. She is extremely talented and knows how to write a story that will capture your heart and mind.

I have read the first two books in this series and loved them both. It was wonderful to get into Trent’s life since he was present in the other books but we didn’t really get to know him.

This book starts with Adelaide and Trent’s wedding day. The distance between them is real and you can feel that. They really don’t know who to handle this new situation and what the rules are.

I read some other reviews that complained about the role of sex on this book. But they are a married couple, sex should play a role in a healthy married. Nothing was inappropriate and overly described. It was a real struggle they both had as they figured out this marriage thing.

Kristi developed each character and the growing relationship wonderfully. Even though this is a series I think you could easily read this as a stand-alone, but the first two are outstanding so why would you??

    I loved the first book but the second book was just okay for me because I listened to it as an audiobook and the narrator was not the best. However, I would love to continue this series! Thanks for the giveaway!
