Overview

A shy heiress and a well-known rake face a scandal-forced marriage that might be true love in the latest irresistible romance from the national bestselling author of Marry in Haste.

Shy young heiress, Lady Lily Rutherford, is in no hurry to marry. She dreams of true love and a real courtship. But when disaster strikes, she finds herself facing a scandal-forced marriage to her rescuer, Edward Galbraith, a well known rake.

Despite his reputation Lily is drawn to the handsome Galbraith. In the gamble of her life, she agrees to marry him, hoping to turn a convenient marriage into a love match.

As heir to a title, Galbraith knows he must wed, so a convenient marriage suits him perfectly. But there is a darkness in his past, and secrets he refuses to share with his tender-hearted young bride. All Lily's efforts to get close to him fall on stony ground, and in desperation she retreats to his childhood home--the place he's avoided for nearly a decade.

Must Lily reconcile herself to a marriage without love? Or will Galbraith realize that this warm-hearted, loving girl is the key to healing the wounds of his past--and his heart?

I have been reading histotical romance for 70 years and "Marry in Scandal" is one if the best I have ever read! It covers a range of emotions and feelings in all the characters that eventually blend together in happily ever after! Edward and Lily were charmingly honorable and loving right from the beginning although they both had stong characters and principles. Thoroughly enjoyed Edward's grandfather! A keeper for me!

I absolutely loved Lily and Edward's story!! We meet Lily and Edward in the previous book in the series (although this could be read as a stand-a-lone, I recommend reading that one first). I never would have guessed that Gracie would partner these two together, but it really worked for me. Lily is kidnapped and Edward comes to her rescue. Because of some nasty members of the ton, they are forced to marry. Lily knows that this is a marriage of convenience, but she can't give up her wish to have love in her marriage. But Edward is not willing to open up to Lily and they don't get as close as Lily would hope for. Can Lily get Edward to open up to her and get the loving marriage she always hoped for? This was a great addition to the Marriage of Convenience series and I can't wait to read Rose and Georgiana's stories!

Marry in Scandal by Anne Gracie is book Two in the Marriage of Convenience series. This is the story of Lady Lily Rutherford and Edward Galbraith. I haven't yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book. Lily was holding out for a true courtship and true love but a mishap has her tied to Edward. Lily has a disability that made her wish for the true love part as to ease her life into a marriage. But moving forward Lily tries to find love with Edward but he won't open up to her and is standing on a marriage of convenience. Edward knows of Lily's Innocent and of her friendship with his sister but with one kiss is all it takes to opens him to seeing her as more. Edward has past issues that he hasn't dealt with that make what Lily wants from him hard to give but he wants her. Ms. Gracie knows who to write a book that takes you through so many emotions! I am just crazy about her books and this one did not disappoint!

Ashendon Court, Oxfordshire - 1811 Lord Ashendon, a widower, is the father of Lily and Rose. Their governess has given her notice declaring that Lily is illiterate. The cruel woman has taunted Lily telling her that she is ignorant. It is true that Lily has trouble with reading and math, but her sister, Rose, and her late mother did all they could to help her. Now, Lord Ashendon has been made aware of this problem and he is shocked. He decides to send both Lily and Rose to a school in Bath. He declares that no one will want to marry Lily. London - 1818 Agatha, Lady Salter, is the aunt to Lily and Rose Rutherford and great-aunt to Georgiana. She tells them that the Duke of Everingham is bringing two friends to meet the girls and take them to the opera. Lily hates the opera and simply declines the invitation which infuriates her aunt. She informs the woman that she is going to a party with her brother and sister-in-law, Cal and Emm, also known as the Earl and Countess of Ashendon. While at the party, she sees a mean girl she knew from school, Sylvia Gorrie, and with her usual kindness, Lily agrees to introduce Sylvia to some people. When an urgent note arrives from her sister, Rose, Sylvia reads the note saying that Rose has sent a carriage for her and needs her immediately. The next thing she knows, Lily has been kidnapped and thrown in a carriage. After a horrendous trip in the carriage where she is drugged, she is rescued by Edward Galbraith, a friend of her brother, Cal. He endeavors to return her to London. When word leaks out that Lily had been seen with Edward out of town, he chooses to ask for her hand to stifle any rumors. But he does not love her so can they have a good marriage? I truly enjoyed this book. It is full of all kinds of side stories that all tie together. Lily is a fabulous person and Edward is too. He is carrying some serious guilt that he needs to face and Lily is just the person to help him do so. Keep an eye on Georgiana. Her sense of humor is wonderful. “Look before you leap.” When you read the book, you will appreciate this phrase. Copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
