It was the ideal marriage of convenience…until they met

Cassandra DeWitt has seen her husband only once—on their wedding day two years earlier—and this arrangement suits her perfectly. She has no interest in the rude, badly behaved man she married only to secure her inheritance. She certainly has no interest in his ban on her going to London. Why, he'll never even know she is there.

Until he shows up in London too, and Cassandra finds herself sharing a house with the most infuriating man in England.

Joshua DeWitt has his life exactly how he wants it. He has no need of a wife disrupting everything, especially a wife intent on reforming his behavior. He certainly has no need of a wife who is intolerably amiable, insufferably reasonable … and irresistibly kissable.

As the unlikely couple team up to battle a malicious lawsuit and launch Cassandra's wayward sister, passion flares between them. Soon the day must come for them to part … but what if one of them wants their marriage to become real?

Hilarious, heartrending, and hot, this historical romance set during England's Regency tells the story of a marriage of convenience between opposites.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, the two protagonists are very well done, and the dialogue is hysterical! I'll look for more by this author.

Cassandra DeWitt entered into a marriage of convenience to secure her family's home following the death of their only brother. Her bridegroom, Joshua DeWitt is the illegitimate son of a member of the nobility following a bigamous marriage. He has made his fortune in commerce and is received by society but is notorious for his rudeness. Following their wedding night Joshua left Cassandra and they have led separate lives ever since. He lives in London and Birmingham, she lives at her family's ancestral home with her two sisters and mother. Cassandra determines that her younger sister needs to be presented at court and determines to come to London to entreat her paternal grandmother to make the presentation, despite her husband's instructions to stay at home. Of course there is the excruciating moment where Joshua and Cassandra meet at a society event, neither recognising the other. This is sort of beauty and the beast - although in this case Cassandra is someone who makes friends everywhere whereas Joshua is antisocial. As Joshua and Cassandra live together in London they must confront the truth about the circumstances surrounding their arranged marriage and their own unresolved feelings towards former relationships. Overall, I really enjoyed this. Joshua and Cassandra were engaging characters and there were sufficient plots and side plots to keep my attention. My only criticism is that both Joshua and Cassandra were constantly second-guessing the other's words and actions, you know 'he says he wants me to stay, but does he really mean it or is he just being polite?' Not once or twice but constantly. I wanted to shake them. Recommended by Ilona Andrews so therefore I bought it immediately.

different plot, engaging characters, skillful writing.just enough heat to maintain your interest, but not too graphic.
