As a ship’s captain, highborn bastard Morgan Pryce has spent his life sailing away from England. The last thing he needs is a wife. But when he fears that his titled half brother, Neville, is about to be snared by a gold digger, Morgan aims to protect Neville by tricking the lovely crook into marrying him first. He knows he can't allow himself to believe a word she says. If only she weren’t so convincing....
Determined beauty Bliss Worthington is not terribly fond of finding another man waiting for her at the altar—after all, no one tricks a Worthington and gets away with it. Somehow she must persuade her dangerously handsome new husband to grant her an annulment, because her heart is set on his brother.
Soon the newlyweds must deal with a secret but mutual attraction. Morgan finds himself oddly devastated by her tenderness and braveness. When Neville shows up to rescue her from a loveless marriage, she will have to quickly decide which man is the right one for her..
I wasn't so thrilled with the whole arrangement and the ignorance of all the characters involved. I didn't buy into the wedding not knowing who the groom is or the way Bliss was treated following the nuptials. The sad Cinderella story after marrying someone desperate to save his brother and family from her when it wasn't necessary then beaten in until well after the horse was dead was fairly off putting and neither the growing affection on either side was enough to redeem anything that took place once they decided they actually loved one another. Too little too late.
Until next time book lovers...
