Marry In Scandal, book two in Anne Gracie’s Marriage of Convenience quartet, was such fun to read, though it has a deeper side to it as do many of Anne Gracie’s books. Set just after the Napoleonic war, this story features a war veteran as the hero, a man who has a reputation for being cold and uncaring, and a sweet young girl with a deep secret - she can’t read or write.
This improbable pair are surprisingly well matched and it was lovely watching Lilly healing Edward while he drew her out and helped her to become confident in herself despite the challenges she faces.
With a kidnapping thrown in for good measure and a race to rescue Lilly before her reputation was damaged beyond repair there was plenty to keep me interested and I zipped happily through the story.
This has been another thoroughly satisfying book from Anne Gracie.
