An Unsuitable Husband was a light hearted and humorous story. Theresa and Emile get married for the strangest of reasons - and an agreement to divorce in one year, no strings. The only problem with their arrangement is that they seem to be having too much fun. Theresa and Emile have a connection - even though they don't seem to have much in common - they make each other laugh and stop to enjoy life for awhile.  Emile was the shining star in this one. He was everything I imagine a playboy frenchman to be. He was teasing and had innuendo coming out everywhere. Theresa was a little more flighty. She didn't seem to know what she wanted, other than to annoy her mother - which while it may be fun to annoy your mother, it shouldn't be the motivating event in your life. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

Amusing, passionate, fast moving romance about a corporate lawyer having to get married to get her mother off her back and French footballer who cannot get rid of his ex-girlfriend and is willing to anything to appease his coach and re-establish his reputation. Although with a story line a bit improbable, this romance story will keep you glued to this book until you are finished. After all this is fiction, right? By the end of this book , you will agree with me you want to switch places with Theresa and have a go at Emile. He is the hunkiest book boyfriend you ever dreamed of. The story does make you think about people who treat marriage as a contract and do not place much emphasis on feelings and consequences. Fortunate for us, our two main characters are what dreams are made of. Fall in love with pair, just like I did. Enjoy!

Theresa Chartley has no time for marriage, and no room for disappointment--especially with French soccer player Emile Renaud. Sure, he’s gorgeous, but he’s wrong for a career woman like Theresa. If only her mother would stop pressuring her to get married and let her live her own life. Finding a very unsuitable husband to shock her parents into silence and put an end to the marriage campaign is the only answer. Emile will do just fine. Theresa’s outrageous proposal is the answer to Emile’s problem. They’re complete opposites living in different worlds, but a fake marriage will let him ditch his clingy ex once and for all. Then he’ll be free of commitment and free to live his life the way he wants to. A contract. Twelve months. And they walk away Scott free. But a year of marriage tests them both in unimaginable ways. Maybe Emile isn’t unsuitable after all, but how can Theresa let herself love him when she signed a contract to let him go? Review: Sexy, French Soccer Star anyone??? Well, let me say...Me! Me! Me! Maybe I just have not found them, but I say there should be more stories about soccer players, especially ones like Emile in this story. I liked the premise of the two different people, who seem only to have a connection of convenience.  But what starts two people attracted to each other and need each other for issues in their lives, turns into friendship and eventually love.  Even though they seem total opposites, they are a lot a like.  They are both driven to succeed in their fields, are smart, sexy and really caring people.  I liked that the author showed different sides to the characters and made me really care about what was going to happen to Theresa and Emile.  And holy crap, they are sexy together! Other things I liked about the story, was the setting; England and a trip to Brazil.  Being from the United States, so many Authors I read are from here and I like the different setting.  I also liked that it was about Football (soccer) and American football, which is so much more widely played around the world that I thought it was a great change from more typical stories, we see here. This was a great story, funny, smart, super sexy.  I kept me entertained and reading until it was finished. 4 Stars

Reasons you should read An Unsuitable Husband: 1) It's set in London (always nice to read a book set on our little island) 2) It has a very sexy Frenchman 3) It has a feisty strong lady 4) It's sexy, passionate and intimate 5) It's laugh-out-loud funny Theresa Chartley, corporate lawyer, singleton and commitment-phobe meets a sexy stranger in a nightclub. Emile Renaud is that stranger and after rapidly swapping actual dancing to that of the horizontal variety, she discovers he's French, wealthy and a footballer with the playboy reputation to go with it. Throw in a nagging mother, a stalker of an ex-girlfriend and a proposition, and we get a romantic journey that is fun, sexy, frustrating, touching and sweet in every way. I absolutely loved it. I don't believe that I have ever laughed so hard when reading an Indulgence book and I sincerely hope that this is what Ros Clarke intended (if not I am clearly just warped), as from very early on in the book I was having a major fit of the giggle-snorts. It was perfect British dry humour, but balanced with equally perfect passion and Theresa and Emile had an amazing chemistry on all levels. I loved Theresa and her wit, confidence and down-to-earth nature and Emile, oh I adored him. I fell in love with the Frenchman who puts the mmm in Monsieur. He had it all; he said and did the right things and was cocky, confident, witty, cheeky and thoughtful. I even read all his dialogue with a French accent! So yes, I sighed and swooned, laughed and smiled. If a light, low-angst, fun, passionate romance with a real couple is what you're after, this is the book. I received a copy of this courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest and unbiased opinion

Entertaining and rather funny at times. I liked the rather unusual way this story played out. I found myself smiling and ended up feeling happy all around by the end.

This was a refreshing romance between Theresa a career woman, and Emile a French soccer star. She is pressured by her mother to settle down and he has a crazy ex that is blackmailing him into renewing their relationship. After a hot hook up Theresa impulsively proposes to Emile, he declines, but later decides to take her up on her offer. They marry and become both friends and lovers.  This was one of the best books I have read in a while! I have put Ros Clarke on my autobuy list.  I was given a free copy for an honest review.

An Unsuitable Husband by Ros Clarke is the story of Theresa Chartley who is not look for marriage but her mother keeps pressuring her to find a husband.  Emile Renaud is a soccer player with a reputation for being bad.  When she needs to stop her mother from setting her up and he needs to clean up his act they decide to get married.  This was a great story. Two people who don't think marriage and happily every after is in store for them.   I love that Theresa is strong independent character,  I love Emile he is the charming and sweet.  I love how Ros Clarke tell the story of both these characters.   You find the fights and friendship which is building toward the love.   This a great fast read.   I love the way Ros Clarke wrote the story leading to a wonderful ending.
