This is entertaining book has an aloof heroine at its core and a hero who doesn’t have much going for him (at first). The momentum is great and there is some fun banter.
Jemima needs to marry fast so she is free to find her missing brother. Ralph needs a rich bride to fund his sister’s coming out. When they marry they are estranged until each is drawn into the other’s family problems.
I like that Jemima grabs pistols at any opportunity and that we get to see Ralph evolve as a man. I was a bit disappointed that Jemima’s character doesn’t evolve and that she not as relatable as Ralph.
While this is good reading there are so many excellent writers in HR that ‘Inconvenient Bride’ misses out of being in the top tier with Mary Balogh, Amanda Quick, Eloisa James and Lisa Kleypas.
This is not your typical romance story!!! :) Through the first books in the series we are introduced to Lady Jemima Stanhope and the rake Lord Northmere. They are not friends and they are well..chalk and cheese. Yet, Jemima receives word that her brother could be alive and she is willing to do anything to find him and reunited with him. On a dare Lord Northmere proposes and is shocked when she accepts! They marry in haste and over time begin a tentative friendship that leads to love. I highly recommend reading all the novels they are unputdownable!! I highly recommend this book...just loved it!
