Apparently, this was a real thing in the days when divorces and annulments were hard to come by. It makes for an interesting premise that mostly failed to live up to its promise. Alyse and Marcus were too hot and cold for the storyline to make much sense. I did enjoy seeing what happened with Marcus after his appearance in a previous book in the series, but the idea of the haughty Duke with a common farm girl wife didn't work for me, especially after his disdain for the shopgirl in While the Duke was Sleeping.
It was an okay and quick read. The sex scenes were fine though not until late in the book, and there were a few funny moments, especially with the laird who kidnaps Alyse. I'm looking forward to his book.
I did enjoy listening to this book for the most part. I enjoyed the uniqueness of the bride sale but then the story dragged around the middle. The repetition of “you are not my wife” became a bit tiresome, is it any wonder that Alyse began to believe it?
I enjoyed the road trip aspect of the book but I expected a bit more excitement from the journey but I got more “driving through Kansas” monotony rather than “the epic beauty and adventure of the highlands!”
I felt that the story began to pick up after the halfway mark, around 60% and the sex scenes were pretty spicy!
There could have been more/better dialogue and there were some questions left unanswered:
(1) What exactly happened with the creeper Tanner? Was he just a creepy guy, did he molest her? I kept expecting him to pop up and I get that he was added to show the danger Alyse was in by being sold (in case that was unclear) but I felt he was a plot point that was dropped and could have been an interesting/exciting/ominous presence that just... wasn’t. Instead...
(2) We get the non-fiancé/supposed lover crop up again at the very end wanting to marry Alyse. Why? Not really sure. And I guess he just bows out gracefully after Marcus declares himself. His reappearance at the end seemed jarring and out of place. Speaking of which...
(3) That epilogue... I get that it’s a segue to the next book but ... we never even meet this sister chick in THIS book sooooo it’s pretty hard to care. Would have preferred more married life, kids, etc. between Marcus and Alyse and less about other characters in the epilogue.
I did love the narrator, Carmen Rose. She did a fabulous job on the narration, accents were onpoint, and I found it to be a soothing not overly dramatic read. She has read a number of Tessa Dare books and I’ve enjoyed those as well.
I’d say this is a reader but maybe not a re-reader.
