Helena, Melissa, and Chloe are arranging marriages, but not all will go smoothly on the way to a happily ever after…

Warren Beaufort, the Earl of Steinbeck, prides himself on having the best of the best. From his furnishings in his townhouse to his clothes, he chooses everything with the intention of impressing others. And more than that, he has amassed a fortune that is the envy of many in London. One thing he lacks, however, is an heir. In order to get the heir, he’ll need a wife.

Lady Iris, the Duke of Hartwell’s daughter, has money, but she lacks both grace and looks. One thing she does have, however, is the good sense to know a gentleman like Warren is all wrong for her, which is why she’s horrified to learn she’s been matched with him for marriage. But the Duchess of Ashbourne and her friends assure her that she and Warren have so much in common they are an ideal match.

Having no way out of the marriage her father has arranged for her, she has no choice but to marry Warren. While she might have to give him the heir, she will never, under any circumstance, give him something far more precious…her heart.

About the Author

Ruth Ann Nordin has written seventy romances, ranging from Regencies to historical westerns to contemporaries. She plays with other genres from time to time, but her first love is romance. She has been happily married for eighteen years to a sweet and funny guy, and they have four sons, who are all taller than Ruth now that they're 12, 13, 14, and 16. The good thing is she doesn't need a ladder, and there's always someone to take care of a mouse that squeezes its way into her Montana home. She considers herself very lucky to have led such a charmed life. Being able to play with characters and create stories is just icing on the cake. Hopefully, she'll get to keep doing this many years to come.

Just under 190 pages that I would say was more of a novella than a full length novel. This book has potential to be a great book. There could have been a little more details in developing the relationship more thoroughly.

I totally love Ruth Ann Nordin books. This one was just as captivating as all the other books I have read. I love the characters and Iris and Warren were so cute. One comment regarding virgins..... I don't understand why most of the time authors do not mention the blood????? Or they mention it to be just a few drops. Sure some women are like that but some are gushers!! Just saying! Loved this story!!!

Another nicely done installment of the Marriage by Arrangement series. We finally get to see what makes Warren, the Lord Steinbeck, tick. His morally superior attitude came off a pretentious and annoying. I liked watching him realize how his behavior has effected others and work to make changes. The way he works at pursuing his wife is endearing and at moments humorous. Iris has spent an entire season being ridiculed by rivals at the ton and ignored by gentlemen. I loved her brilliant mind and that when she lets her guard down with Warren she amazes herself and him. While the beginning of their relationship starts off rough they reach a place where they each truly love, care for and support one another. There is a bit of cloak and dagger, a bit of spice and some really sweet moments. Adult read
