A headstrong Lord gets the challenge of his life in this original Signet Regency Romance from April Kihlstrom.
NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED
A stipulation in his father’s Will requires Edmund, Lord Rothwood to marry by his twenty-fifth birthday, or forfeit the bulk of his inheritance. In search of a dutiful wife who will let him do as he pleases, Edmund remembers young, docile Beatrix Trowley, whom he met years ago, and believes she will do nicely.
With her family’s welfare to consider, Beatrix quickly accepts Edmund’s offer. But only then does he discover that the once docile Beatrix is now a vivacious woman who will challenge his expectations at every turn—and just might be the true love of his life.

It was an interesting premise with promise, but I don't think the plot remained compelling after they married. I pretty much skimmed the rest, which is super rare for me. The blackmail plot was melodramatic, and I felt there were a lot of characters introduced who were poorly developed. Also, the story became very rushed and seemed poorly planned towards the end. Disapointingly, there were quite a few sex scenes, and while it wasn't quite Harlequin erotic, it was pretty explicit. To me, passion should definitely exist between spouses, but the details should remain private, intimate. I find it vulgar and cheapening to turn ones work into soft porn when it could aspire to much more. I'll be removing it from my nook collection.
