The premise was good, a man promised in marriage by dad flees to India then returned to regretfully make the match. The hero annoyed me at first, he seemed a bit of a sap, and no regency gentleman would be as impolite as he was... the lady was slightly better. They both improved. I could see the villain coming a mile away. The ending was quite nice. But there was precious little sparkle or vibrancy in the writing. And lots of description of emotion....
I enjoyed this book and would recommend it. It was written well and enjoyed all the characters and the chemistry between the main two. It is always nice to read a sweet clean regency romance. Now I want to read - Mending the Duke - after reading the sneak peak.
Philip Traveled to India to look over his business after he is told he is to marry a woman named Miss Weston. They met a few times and he left for months and wrote to the lady and she wrote back. He is a bit disturbed that he is forced into marriage and decides that he will release her is this is what she wants.
He sees her and then decided to do his duty and propose to her but the man wants to court her first. Only another gentleman has set his sights on the young Miss Weston. Will he be to late?
I enjoyed reading this book I’m sure you will also! My disclaimer... I was given a copy of this book for my honest review. Any book or novels I leave reviews on are not dependent on the book/novel review author’s opinion. No one influenced my voluntary review for any of the books or novels I read, they are my own opinions
Enjoyable story that will have you turning page after page to see what is going to happen next. So much miscommunication between the main couple makes you want to shake them both at times. I enjoyed the humour when Galsworthy tries to apologise for his previous behavior and only makes things worse. Suspense, intrigue, despair, forgiveness and a twist you don’t expect make this book well worth the read. I highly recommend it to Regency lovers. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Philip, betrothed according to father's wishes to Marianne. Well written, in depth characterisation, great plot featuring jealousy, rivals, slow burn romance, a plot twist didn't see coming made this a compelling read!
