Overview

The marriage of Lady Catherine Nettle and Marcus Windfair, the 7th Duke of Kensington, was declared the affair of the Season. They seemed perfect for one another... until they weren't.

Now after three years of living completely separate lives Catherine wants a divorce. She can no longer remain married to a man who does not return her love and is willing to do whatever it takes – including following her husband to the secluded cottage in the highlands where they spent their honeymoon – to get what she wants.

Marcus can no longer trust his wife after the scandal that plagued them three years ago. Refusing her ridiculous request for a divorce, he escapes to Woodsgate, confident Catherine not follow him into the wilds of Scotland. Until she shows up on his doorstep, soaking wet and spitting mad.
Forced together, they reach an unusual compromise: Marcus will agree to the divorce... if Catherine gives him an heir first. It is the perfect solution for two people who claim to no longer love each other... or is it?

A Brooding Beauty is the first novella in the Wedded Women Quartet.

Editorial Reviews

Swept Away by Romance - Steffi A
A story of pride, miscommunication and stubbornness but also of a love so strong that it can overcome years of bitterness and heart-break... I really enjoyed Jillian Eaton's way of story-telling.

Reviewed by JoAnne Book provided by the author for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book This is an historical novella that had an actual storyline with a beginning, a middle and an end and also had a lot packed into its 63 pages. There was such animosity and hatred between Lord Kensington and his wife Cat, as he called her. Neither knew how to talk to the other and engage in an actual conversation as opposed to flinging accusations and hurtful comments. They would each retreat then boldly come forward only to retreat again. There was laughter, tears, anger, hatred, love and animosity. Each had their pride which also prohibited them from talking to each other in a cultured and respectful way. There was good closure through a nicely woven epilogue. There were complex characters but the chemistry was there though and I couldn’t help but root for them to be reunited as a couple and a family. Does this happen in the end? You’ll have to read it to find out. Eaton is a new to me author and I look forward to reading other books she has written. The first chapter in book two in the series was in the back of this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to read it in full Another new to me author has made her way to my ever growing TBR pile! Favorite Quote: “I loved you yesterday, today and I shall love you for every tomorrow. You are my heart, my soul, my very reason for being,” he finished simply.

Read in one afternoon and loved every minute of it. For a novella it sure packs an emotional punch! Well worth the $0.99 IMO. Can't wait to read the next book in the series! Easy 5 stars.
