Overview

Can a lady tempt a Free Fellow to surrender his heart?

As a founding member of the Free Fellows League--a group of four gentlemen who signed a pledge to never wed when they were lads--Griffin, Viscount Abernathy, swears that he will put off marrying as long as possible. But when he is suddenly called off to war, he has no choice but to obey his father's wishes and find a wife...

Just days later, he marries the lovely Lady Alyssa. For a man committed only to his freedom, she seems a perfect--and perfectly undemanding--bride. Intelligent and self-sufficient, Alyssa craves her independence just as much as Griffin loves his. But as the irresistible attraction between them flourishes with every look and touch, they discover there is something they desire even more than a loveless marriage of convenience--the passion they find in each other's arms...

Book 1 of the "Free Fellows League" Series, which includes BARELY A BRIDE, MERELY THE GROOM, HARDLY A HUSBAND, TRULY A WIFE, A BACHELOR STILL and CLEARLY A COUPLE (a novella from TALK OF THE TON)

Predictable but good book. There's a lot of page filler details that one might want to skim through. Frankly; I gave it 4 stars because it was free. I wouldn't buy a book by this author.

AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A SOMEWHAT BORING STORY. THEN I GOT INVOLVED IN THE CHARACTORS I MEAN REALLY INVOLVED. IT ALMOST SEEMED I WAS IN THE ROOM SITTING IN A LEATHER WING BACK CHAIR HAVING A WHISKEY WITH THE FREE FELLOWS OR IN THE COACH-WELL MAYBE NOT IN THE COACH-SINCE ON A SENSUAL SCALE OF 1-10 THIS PART IS AN 8. AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES (I HAVE ALREADY STARTED COLIN'S STORY). NOW FOR THE NEGATIVE--IT IS STATED IN SYNOPSIS THAT GRIFFIN WAS AWAY FOR 2 YEARS-HE WAS NOT. IT IS ALSO STATED HE HAD TO WIN HIS WIFE BACK--NOT SO-HE TRIED TO PUSH HER AWAY-SHE HAD ALWAYS BEEN LOYAL AND EAGER TO HAVE HIM RETURN.THAT--PLUS VERY MEDIOCRE COVER ILLUSTRATIONS ON ALL THE BOOKS-IS NOT-OF COURSE-A REASON TO NOT READ THIS SERIES.

Another truly enjoyable tale..Having read another of the Free Fellow League Series, Merely the Groom..I had to buy and read this book..and am thankful I did!!!..what a great story, Alyssa, and Griffin are the perfect foil to each other. I was thoroughly entranced and look forward to Ms.Lee's third of the series..Hardly A Husband.. Indulge & be Delighted !!!

I loved this book! The characters were well developed and enjoyable. Alyssa, the heroine, is smart, funny, and full of energy. The hero, Griffin, is charming and witty, and everything a romantic hero should be. This is the first I have read of this author's work and I definitely look forward to more from the 'Free Fellows League'.
