The overly scientific, always respectable, and socially awkward Alexander Banks has just been informed his name resides on a betrothal agreement right above the name of the worst chit in all of England. With a loophole that allows him to marry another without consequence before the thirtieth anniversary of his birth, he has only four weeks to find another woman and make her his wife. Being the logical scientist he is, Alex decides to take his friend's advice and treat his quest for a bride just like a science experiment...
Caroline Sinclair is still trying to scrape her jaw off the floor after hearing her cousin, Lady Olivia’s, latest announcement when the object of their conversation, Alex Banks, Olivia’s intended, arrives for what Caroline assumes is a bout of drawing room chitchat with his betrothed. But when an experiment is mentioned, Caroline, who cannot resist a science experiment any more than she can deny her lungs air, volunteers to help before she even knows what it is!

About the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author Rose Gordon has written eight unusually unusual historical romances that have been known to include scarred heroes, feisty heroines, marriage-producing scandals, far too much scheming, naughty literature and always a sweet happily-ever-after. When not escaping to another world via reading or writing a book, she spends her time chasing two young boys around the house, being hunted by wild animals, or sitting on the swing in the backyard where she has to use her arms as shields to deflect projectiles AKA: balls, water balloons, sticks, pinecones, and anything else one of her boys picks up to hurl at his brother who just happens to be hiding behind her.

If you enjoy your books in series and want the whole picture you will want to read the first three books in the Scandalous Sisters Series by Rose. You will meet Alex and Olivia in those books and understand better who they are and what they are like. Book 1: Her Sudden Groom by Rose Gordon Groom Series Edward Banks, now on his death bed, tell his eldest son Alex, about a betrothal agreement he made with his best friend when his daughter was born on the same day as Alex eight years later, Lady Olivia Sinclair. Later on they added a statement saying that if either of them married before his 30th birthday, the agreement would be null and void. Alex has thirty days to find a bride, Alex who is brilliant when it comes to science but not so much when it comes to woman. He does know he could never tolerate life with Olivia, if it were bad enough that she unattractive, dressed poorly and smelled bad but her disposition was even worse! Marcus Sinclair agrees that if Alex can find a bride within thirty days he won't hold him to marrying Olivia, after all Marcus likes Alex. Marcus suggests that Alex treats finding a bride as an experiment. When Caroline Sinclair overhears that word she wants to join in and help with what she thinks is a scientific experiment, she missed the first part of the conversation. Alex finds her lovely and distracting but as smart as he is it takes Marcus to point out how perfect they would match up. Caroline was adopted by her Uncle's family when she was seven. Her mother was dead and her father a addict. She had to put up with her cruel cousin Olivia all these years. Caroline was jealous of her cousin who would marry the handsome man. It was Caroline who was getting to spend time with him though. She was busy writing up notes for experiments, playing lawn games and spending time with him. And finding out it was true, Alex seemed to only be able to converse about science. This book continues where the Scandalous Sisters left off. Alex Banks is their cousin who we meet in the other books. He is always being scientific. We get to see our old friends from the first three books and meet some new ones as well who will be in the next books. The earlier books will prepare you for Olivia as well, she is quite irritating! **Sexual situations within marriage.

This is a series that started back with the bride series and I have loved every book so far. I like that in every one of series she draws you into the newest character introduced so that when you finish the current book you want to read the next book to find out how that character that was introduced in the book you are reading turns out. Very smart writing on her part, which of course has kept me interested enough to keep buying her books considering the first one was a free book! PS: Although it has been a few days since I have read this book (I usually try and review sooner) I can't remember how many pages it was. I believe in the 300 range. I always like to let the next person know how long the book is because I hate reading short books as I am rather a fast reader.

"Her Sudden Groom" is one of the best I've read in a long time. Once I started, I couldn't set it down! It is a great combination of romance and mystery. Rose Gordon has become one of my favorite authors and I am looking forward to reading all of her books in the very near future!

3.5 star BRIEF SUMMARY Alex loves science as he eats and breaths it. So, when his father informs him he is and has been betrothal to Lady Olivia since birth, he is not too happy. Lady Olivia is known for temper and Alex is not looking forward to being married to her. He is to be married in a matter of weeks, however, Alex¿s father also informs him that there is a loophole that might not let him married Lady Olivia, and that loophole could be Caroline, Lady Olivia¿s cousin. THOUGHTS I found this to be an interesting reading. I love what the basis of the story was. Also, the moment the story started it went right to what the plot was about, Alex finding out that he is betrothal to Lady Olivia. Alex¿s character definitely seemed awkward at times as his love for science is shown but also lovable. Caroline has been comfortable in her role in the Sinclair household. She also has a love for science and never forgot the day four years ago when Alex turn her away from his Society club. Now that it was pointed out that Alex¿s problems could be solved with marriage to Caroline, he needs to fall in her good grace. As I found the story to my liking, a few scenes dipped in and out for me when it came to holding my interest. Storyline: FAIR Enjoyment: FAIR to GOOD Romance Novel Junkies

Finally a romance more than skin deep. There was actually substance to the characters and the story. I fully recommend this refreshing read.

I loved this book. I loved the humorous and off-beat characters. It was a free book, but I enjoyed it so much I bought all off Rose Gordon's Nook books! I hope you enjoy them as well!!

This is the first book I've read by this author, but it definitely won't be my last! It was interesting from page 1 and I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to start the next one!

Not great. Alex is too dull. Caroline too forgiving to everyone. Their romance did nothing for me. Hopefully the next book will be better.

I bought this book after it was recommended on a blog I read. I'm so glad I did! Romantic and sweet. I wanted Alex for my very own. I can't wait to read Marcus' story.

This was fun read. The hero in this story is not your typical hero, which made it fun. This book had me laughing outloud one moment and shedding tears a while later. I highly recommend reading The Scandalous Sisters series before this one so you can get to know some of the characters better.

Of the four grooms series this was my least favorite of them. Way too much science that made it a little boring. I didn't fall in love with the hero like I did the other ones.
