This has been such a fun series. Each unique story has drawn me in and entertained me with its charming plot twists and adorable, but imperfect characters. An Uncommon Courtship was unlike any other marriage of convenience story I’ve read and the author’s voice really made it shine.
The couple’s unconventional relationship unfolds amidst a very curious society. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, the romantic tension runs high and the witty dialogue adds extra charm to the early 1800’s backdrop.
Trent and Adelaide don’t begin their lives together in married bliss and must learn a great deal about their spouse and themselves first. At times, I’ll admit their doubts and insecurities seemed repetitive and slowed the pace. I was eager for them to communicate and move forward. I wanted their happily-ever-after almost as much as they did. 😉
This is one author I follow and recommend other readers do the same. Her distinct style and wit is easily recognizable and I always enjoy her humorous way of storytelling.
I received a free copy from the publisher. No review, positive or otherwise, was required—all opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Life for Lady Adelaide Bell was easier if she hid in her older sister’s shadow–which worked until her sister got married. Even with the pressure of her socially ambitious mother, the last thing she expected was a marriage of convenience to save her previously spotless reputation.
Lord Trent Hawthorne couldn’t be happier that he is not the duke in the family. He’s free to manage his small estate and take his time discovering the life he wants to lead, which includes grand plans of wooing and falling in love with the woman of his choice. When he finds himself honor bound to marry a woman he doesn’t know, his dream of a marriage like his parents’ seems lost forever.
