Another of Cheryl Bolen's classic marriage-of-convenience stories
An innocent visit to the Duke of Aldridge's to request a donation for her war widows puts Lady Elizabeth Upton in the midst of a most shocking scandal. . .
The Duke of Aldridge offers for his best friend's sister, Lady Elizabeth Upton, after a mix-up sends her to his bedchamber—just as he's emerging from his bath. She most certainly does not want to force the duke's hand, but how can she bear the shame her scandalous behavior has cast upon her dear brother, the Marquess of Haverstock?
Once she agrees to marry her childhood heartthrob, Elizabeth realizes she wants nothing more than to win her husband's love. But capturing his heart is no easy task when former loves threaten to destroy the fragile bonds of their marriage.
A sweet forced marriage turns to love story. Phillip and Elizabeth don't really know each other. He's her brothers best friend but is 11 years older and has been out of the country for 5 years. An accidental encounter causes them to marry or bring scandal to her family. Elizabeth resists while Phillip wants to do the right thing. Although they don't really know each other they suit each other well. An enjoyable read
