Overview

Their marriage was convenient. . .

Simon St. James, fifth Earl of Trask, knows he could do worse in the marriage of convenience department. Sophie Stanton may be a bit of a social liability, with her ungovernable ways and flighty nature, but Simon has responsibilities as an earl that far outweigh happiness in the household. And as for happiness in the bedroom. . .he has to admit he sees Sophie's potential in that arena. . .

Their passion was not!

But Sophie isn't some bargaining chip to be traded, and she's not about to let Simon St. James tell her how to live her life--even though she has nurtured a crush on the handsome young earl for as long as she can remember. If his idea of courtship is telling her what to do, then she is not interested, or at least she is trying not to be. But when his scolding words turn to scorching kisses, suddenly Sophie starts paying attention. . .

    Unlikable hero........................................... He ran

    Unlikable hero...........................................
    He rants raves and generally treats her  like she is an idiot.   He tells her he wants to marry her because her dowry contains land rich in coal and he needs it for a business deal even though he is already filthy rich.  She always forgives him because she has been in love with him forever.  She has a social awareness which he considers childish..  If you feel sorry for the heroine at the end of the book it is not a good sign.  Don't recommend.

    Average read, but not the worst ever

    This was a somewhat enjoyable read. It is the first book I have read from this author. It's a typical Earl and the sister of his best friend kind of love story. The Earl does need to marry her for his own personal gain, but feelings can change as they spend more time together.

    Sophie was also your typical lady bordering on spinsterhood, and could be fairly clumsy. At times these features made her sort of adorable, and the Earl's protectiveness were romantic sometimes. After a while though, their complaints of each other got overly repetitive for me and the end of the story was a welcome conclusion to the whole situation.

    So overall, it was an average read and was entertaining, but I did not consider it to tbe a keeper.

    A delightfully fresh Regency romance

    In 1815 the Earl, Simon St. James knows he must marry; the only woman who interests him is intelligent Sophie Stanton. It does not hurt that the obstinate strong willed female, who opposes child labor, owns land with an abundance of coal; something Simon needs for his project.

    Sophie loves Simon and hopes to get him one day to reciprocate. However, her activism against the use of child labor places her at odds with the man she loves. As they argue, fuss and fight, they agree to a marriage of convenience as they debate principles. Each knows the intelligence and passion of their disagreement heats up the bedroom as much as the den.

    The key to this delightfully fresh Regency romance is the background of the industrial revolution as the lead couple inconveniently is on opposite sides of the debate. The main couple is a wonderful pairing as each has strong arguments supporting their hypothesis. Vanessa Kelly captures the essence of the era below the typical elegant hedonism of the Ton as her lad duet (and others) takes sides on complex societal issues like child labor.
