OrangeReviewStarKillian St. John, Viscount Locksley, is shocked when his long-widowed father, the reputedly mad Marquess of Marsden, advertises for a bride to provide him with an additional heir. To protect his father from a probable gold digger, Killian marries her himself. But it's not money that Portia Gadstone wants, it's the security and safety of being married to a peer that she needs, and she'll do what she must to get it—and protect a secret she never wants revealed. Yet neither can deny the attraction that sizzles between them, one that threatens to turn into a love they never wanted.
VERDICT Sexy, clever, and emotionally wrenching, this heartfelt story breathes new life into the classic marriage-of-convenience plot and adds another winner to Heath's addictive series. Heath (The Earl Takes All) lives in Plano, TX, and is noted for her deeply touching historical romances.
