Description

From USA Today bestselling author Laura Lee Guhrke comes the story of a bargain, a marriage of convenience . . . and the chance for love to last a lifetime

They had a deal . . .

From the moment she met the devil-may-care Duke of Margrave, Edie knew he could change her life. And when he agreed to her outrageous proposal of a marriage of convenience, she was transformed from ruined American heiress to English duchess. Five years later, she's delighted with their arrangement, especially since her husband is living on another continent.

But deals are made to be broken . . .

By marrying an heiress, Stuart was able to pay his family's enormous debts, and Edie's terms that he leave England forever seemed a small price to pay. But when a brush with death impels him home, he decides it's time for a real marriage with his luscious American bride, and he proposes a bold new bargain: ten days to win her willing kiss. But is ten days enough to win her heart?

        Starred review from April 15, 2014
        Five years ago, with her reputation in tatters thanks to a callous, privileged cad, American heiress Edie Jewell fled to England and struck a life-changing bargain with the world-traveling Duke of Margrave: her money to set his estates to rights in exchange for marriage and a promise he would leave England and never return. Edie thinks it's an unimpeachable plan--until a wounded, newly serious Margrave comes home, determined to accept his ducal responsibilities, start a family, and win Edie's love. Edie wants him to go, Margrave intends to stay, and the outcome depends on a wager--a single kiss freely given by Edie...and in only ten days. VERDICT A spirited yet emotionally fragile heroine and a resourceful hero find love in this flawlessly written, lushly sensual tale that balances sexual abuse issues with flashes of humor and treats readers to a beautifully depicted and tender courtship. (Of course, it always helps when the villain gets his comeuppance!) A thoroughly satisfying Victorian historical. Guhrke ("When the Marquess Met His Match") lives in the Northwest.

        Starred review from May 1, 2014
        Stuart Margrave promised Edie Ann Jewell he would take her money and run. That is the only reason she proposed to him in the first place. Stuart would get Edie's substantial dowry, which he could use to pay off his family's debts and restore the Margrave estate, and then he would leave for Africa to resume his life as a noted explorer and big game hunter. Edie would then assume her duties as the new duchess of Margrave and thus be spared the horrors of having to return to America and endure a lifetime of whispering about the scandalous mistake she made in Saratoga. But now, after five perfect years of a husband-free marriage, Stuart is back in England, and from the looks of all his luggage, Edie fears her husband has plans to stay. RITA award-winner Guhrke follows up When the Marquess Met His Match (2013) with another superbly written historical that takes a classic romance story line, a marriage of convenience, and, through witty writing and skillfully nuanced characterization, makes the whole thing seem fresh and new.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)

        Five years after her in-name-only marriage to the Duke of Margrave, Edie, now a strong and confident woman, finds herself and her marriage at a crossroads. VERDICT The heroine's traumatic backstory informs but doesn't eclipse the charms of this well-developed romance. (LJ 4/15/14)
