About the Author

USA Today bestselling author, Bree Wolf has always been a language enthusiast (though not a grammarian!) and is rarely found without a book in her hand or her fingers clued to a keyboard. Trying to find her way, she has taught English as a second language, travelled abroad and worked at a translation agency as well as a law firm in Ireland. She also spent loooong years obtaining a BA in English and Education and a MA in Specialized Translation while wishing she could simply be a writer. Although there is nothing simple about being a writer, her dreams have finally come true. "A big thanks to my fairy godmother!" Currently, Bree has found her new home in the historical romance genre, writing Regency novels and novellas. Enjoying the mix of fact and fiction, she occasionally feels like a puppet master (or mistress? Although that sounds weird!), forcing her characters into ever-new situations that will put their strength, their beliefs, their love to the test, hoping that in the end they will triumph and get the happily-ever-after we are all looking for.

I couldn't even get 100 pages in. The plot is just so uninteresting and boring. Anna is annoying and so angry. First without any thought but to save her sister from marry someone else but the man she truly loved she makes it so the duke offers for her instead. It was all her decision and all her plan. But because she finally noticed afterwards that she was gonna be missing out on love and true happiness, she gets angry and spiteful towards her new husband!! Her anger is not justified and I was tired of reading about her. I archived this book and will not read anything else done by the author.

A First of It Kind Within this period of history, women had few to no rights. As property dispersed to the most advantageous suitor, love was a rarity. Wolf's book is the absolute first to have delved into the woman's emotions to an extent that was beyond a simple complaint. The heroine's devastation over the forced pairing was powerful. The hero's realization of what he had done was a love story in itself. Although this is a clean romance, more emotion can be felt between the characters than books that are graphically described. I enjoyed the first of the series and was delighted to like this one even more. The author also developed the secondary character in a way, that makes me look forward to the next book.

Really? Who in their right mind would put up with a wife as vile and dangerous as this one. There were no redeeming qualities, and believe me I kept waiting to see a more caring and reasonable side to this heroine. There was none. But the most pathetic was the husband who let his wife pull a knife on him, and then scar his face. REALLY, that made him fall in love with Her?

Well developed characters, even though the female lead was a tad ridiculous. Story started out quite good but then it dragged on and on until it finally became interesting in the end. Done with the series as the 'dragging' part seems to be the norm in the first two books
