Overview

Marcus Sinclair, sixteenth Earl of Sinclair, has lived the last thirteen years as a recluse following an accident that left him heavily scarred. Though a recluse, Marcus has still managed to fall in love. The problem? The woman he's taken with is none other than the sister of the lady he was once betrothed to!

Emma Green has fancied herself in love with Marcus since she was barely out of leading strings and he taught her how to fish. Neither her sister's engagement to him, nor the accident that left him disfigured has altered those feelings. But that matters naught. Why would he ever be interested in the younger sister of the lady who ruined his life?

Her Reluctant Groom by Rose Gordon Book 2 in the Groom Series If you enjoy series you will want to read the Scandalous Sisters Series first and than the Grooms Series. Emma Green has loved Marcus Sinclair since they first met as young tikes. Being four years younger than him, it was her older sister, Louise, that Marcus asked to marry when he was seventeen. After an accident that scarred Marcus badly, Louise ran off with a Duke. Emma felt that Marcus would never care for her after her sisters cruel treatment but she would often visit her friend Caroline or grit her teeth and spend time with Olivia, Marcus's sister, just so she could see him. Now that Caroline was married and Olivia off to the Americas, she rarely glimpsed the man she loved. Marcus Sinclair was a recluse for the past thirteen years. If only he had waited until finishing school to propose to Louise he would have seen that Emma was the beauty, both inside and out. He also would not be the scarred and hollow man he had become. Even though he loved Emma he would never have her. That did not stop him from finding a way for her to stay with him for a few weeks. For some reason Emma was not staying with her sister but with Caroline and Alex, they were having a house party and Caroline had asked him to allow Emma to stay with him. Emma discovered a book Alex had that helped her in her pursuit of her love. Lady Bird's Ladybird Memoirs, pictures included. A naughty little book that helped her understand things between a man and woman, and she tried to use what she learned to help her snag her man. Only Marcus did not feel worthy of her. Rose will have you both laughing in crying in her stories. And you always get to visit old friends and meet new ones. In this book we get a chance to know Patrick Drakely better, his tale in in the next book. And we also meet Sir Wallace, Drake's cousin. A unique sort of fellow that you quickly fall in love with, even with his quirky ways.. such as counting anything he can when he's nervous. His story will be in the 4th book. **Sexual situations within marriage.

This is the second book by Rose Gordon that I have read. As in the first book, I found this to be....OK, not great. It is very predictable and the conflicts between the characters seem contrived. The do not flow naturally or seem to make any sense, really. I feel like the author had a great premise of love beyond physical beauty, but did not develop that in the characters dialogue or actions. I love a good romance novel, but I found these characters to be shallow and ill-defined.

Of the grooms this was my favorite of the 4 couples. I loved that Emma looked past the scars and fell in love with Marcus for who he was. I felt very sorry for him to be related to Olivia. He was a saint when it came to her.

I love "beauty and the beast" themed romances, and this one was an enjoyable read from an author I was not familiar with. My only complaint would be that the historical strictures placed on relationships in this time period are completely or mostly ignored. But, that doesn't take away from the sweet love story. I enjoyed it enough that I bought another by the author.
