Wedding Night

Overview


Dear Diary,
Four years have passed since the utter humiliation of my wedding night. But it seems like just yesterday that my husband left me--before consummating our marriage. So why, then, do I still harbor feelings for the selfish cad I once adored? Why did my heart quicken when I finally saw him again? I have my own life to lead, and my own secret, romantic novels to write. Samuel Firth has no place in my world.

Of course, the only reason ...

Overview


Dear Diary,
Four years have passed since the utter humiliation of my wedding night. But it seems like just yesterday that my husband left me--before consummating our marriage. So why, then, do I still harbor feelings for the selfish cad I once adored? Why did my heart quicken when I finally saw him again? I have my own life to lead, and my own secret, romantic novels to write. Samuel Firth has no place in my world.

Of course, the only reason Samuel returned to England was to contest my wish for a legal separation. He says he will not grant it--unless I agree to play the role of his wife until his place in Society has been secured. I knew he only married me for my noble name!

Yes, I was forced to agree to his sordid scheme. But if he thinks that our bargain grants him access to my bed, then he shall be sorely disappointed. In truth, it shall be quite amusing to lead him on--and then spurn him as he once spurned me!

From the private diary of Lady Cassandra Firth

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Barbara Dawson Smith is a fabulous storyteller."
-Christina Dodd
Publishers Weekly
Arrogant, alpha-male heroes with hearts of gold are a dime a dozen in romance novels, and the hero of Smith's (One Wild Night, etc.) formulaic Regency does little to distinguish himself from the pack. Samuel Firth, the illegitimate son of the former Marquess of Stokeford, married 14-year-old Cassandra Grey, the daughter of a Duke, to raise his social stature and build a dynasty that would rival that of his aristocratic relations. But when he realizes his bride is too young to start a dynasty, he abandons her on their wedding night and travels the globe, returning four years later when she petitions him for a separation. Although Samuel agrees to give Cassie what she wants provided that she helps him reenter society, he has no intention of letting her go. At 19, Cassie is now a beauty, and Samuel is prepared to use every tool in his arsenal, including manipulation, to get her into bed. Samuel comes across as little more than a bully wrapped in a handsome package, but his flinty encounters with the independent-minded Cassie will keep readers turning the pages, many in the hopes that she'll give him the dressing-down he deserves. Inevitably, the novel ends on a bittersweet note, with Cassie succumbing to her husband's sensual coercion, which will make some readers sigh with satisfaction and others with exasperation. (Apr.)
