Book Description

For Better?

Corporate wife Mallory McIver has promised her new husband a businesslike marriage, with no messy emotions involved.

For Worse?

Then Torr announces he's moving to the Highlands of Scotland to restore the derelict castle he's inherited. And he expects Mallory to accompany him....


As Torr swaps his suits for jeans, Mallory is bewildered. She married a sophisticated city type, but in the country he's rugged, capable and altogether gorgeous.... Soon Mallory realizes she's breaking the terms of their arrangement--by falling for her own husband!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 blue ribbons from Romance Junkies June 29, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mallory McIver's marriage isn't the hearts and flowers union that girls dream about - it's a business arrangement. Her fiancé/business partner left her in dire straights and in exchange for bailing her out of financial ruin all Torr asks in return is marriage. She's played the perfect hostess to his business associates and takes care of his home but she craves something more and is determined to go back to work.

Mallory's stunned when Torr returns home from work and announces that he's inherited an estate complete with a crumbling castle in the Scottish Highlands. Torr's sold his businesses and his home and has no qualms about trading in his business suits for casual wear and jeans and relocating to Scotland - but his wife is far from enthusiastic about his plans. Mallory had intended to return to the workforce, but what chance of that is there if he's serious about moving. She doesn't even have the option of remaining behind since he's sold the house. Her sister's apartment complex doesn't allow pets so she can't move in there, and there's no way she'd return her beloved dog Charlie to the shelter.

Mallory doesn't understand what Torr gets out of their relationship. She doesn't see any reason why he'd even want her to stay with him in his new home. There certainly won't be any entertaining in such a remote place, so what does he expect from her? To complicate matters, there's only one decent bed and she'll be sleeping with him - something she isn't prepared to do. She's still hurt from Steve's betrayal and secretly has held onto her feelings for him. Can she continue to deny the truth about Steve? Will she ever accept Torr and allow herself to see him as her ideal man?

Jessica Hart really fulfilled my every expectation when I picked up this book.

When Steve, Mallory's prince in shining armor turned out to be lying, cheating flim flam man, she lost everything ---- her home, her business, and her heart. Marriage seemed a good solution to keep a roof over her head, especially when Torr offered to pay off her staggering, mind-boggling debt. When Torr inherits a Scottish castle, Mallory wants no part of this ruin, but what choice does she have? Things go from bad to worse when they arrive. If the isolation, lack of the modern conveniences like heat weren't bad enough, there is wildlife, scary storms, no neighbors and bugs! Mallory's marriage seems more and more a mistake and she will do anything to get out of Kincaillie. Can Torr open her heart to see him in a new light before it is too late to save their marriage? Can these newlyweds find new start in a new setting?

In NEWLYWEDS OF CONVENIENCE , Jessica Hart creates a modern fairy tale romance, a unique blend of fairy tale situations imbued with modern psychological depth. Jessica Hart writes a romance that brings love to the darkest corners of the heart, a heart in pain. Depression leaves Mallory unable to do little else but look inwards, turning her hurt and anger against herself. The reader feels her emergence from depression, step by step. Torr has an almost magical effect on her as he frustrates her. Her anger empowers her, turning her feelings outward, giving her energy and an emerging fighting spirit. Overwhelmed by fear and anger, Mallory fights her way back from the devastation of her past.

This romance is a bit different than others I have read by Jessica Hart but every bit as powerful. NEWLYWEDS OF CONVENIENCE is almost exclusively told through Mallory's point of view.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a favorite May 22, 2014

I have re-read this several times, and it's as wonderful as the first time. I wish this had been one of Ms Hart's later books where we knew Torr's thoughts. A few of the things I would have changed...the tiny diamond necklace...she could have sold it to get a wedding ring for Torr to, or found out is was fake and worthless so she could have gotten over her ex even faster. When they go to dinner in Iverness, either she could have gotten to the bar first and Torr had to stop another man trying to "pick her up" or if he had gotten to the bar first, all conversation would stop and eyes turn to her when she enters the room (okay, a little too Pretty Woman-ish). I recommend this for a nice Harlequin read.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an okay book but very one dimensional. The entire story was told from the heroines point of view. You were never given insight to how he felt.

If you don't mind everything from one view it was an okay read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable February 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book a lot and would have given it more stars but I spent half of it wanting to smack Mallory and Torr both. They made things so much harder than they had to be but it worked out in the end.

She first stumbled into writing as a way of funding a Ph.D. in Medieval Studies, and since then she has written 59 books for Harlequin Mills & Boon's Romance/RIVA series. A multiple finalist and past winner of both a RITA (Christmas Eve Marriage, Best Traditional Romance 2005) and the UK's coveted Romance Prize (now the RoNA Rose Award), Jessica was awarded the National Readers' Choice Award (Traditional category) for her 50th book, Last-Minute Proposal, in 2009 and again in 2010 for Cinderella's Wedding Wish.

Jessica lives in York, a historic city in the north of England, and also writes 'time slip' novels as Pamela Hartshorne.
