Lady Fiona is desperate for funds, so much so she approaches one of the richest men in England to help her. Fiona’s brother is kidnapped in Portugal and she needs twenty five thousand pounds to pay the ransom. Setting aside her pride she asks Nicholas Birmingham to wed her and give her the money.
Nick is surprised by the offer and being a wonderful businessman, he knows that a marriage with Fiona will only help his business ventures; he can arise in the ton’s esteem. The two marry knowing that this is not a love match, Fiona, in fact, was rejected just last year by the man she thought would be her husband and Nick has had a string of mistresses over the years.
In some ways this is an uncomplicated story between the leads. They both try to make the most of their marriage. They are imminently compatible and they are mostly considerate of each other but neither one is honest with the other with their feelings. Mostly this is a matter of pride on Fiona’s part and in I felt Nick did not want to know the answers to some of his doubts. For chapters everything goes along fine and then their misgivings would creep in, “was Nick faithful” and “was Fiona over her first love.” Usually something along this nature would get too old but actually their suspicions made perfect sense although they do not communicate nearly enough.
There is a secondary romance that happens way too fast and I would have enjoyed if that had been its own book. The couple was interesting and there was so much more to explore with their feelings.
The tension between the leads is not as tight as it could be but still, they are an enjoyable couple mainly because they are the kind of characters a reader wants to root for. Fiona is an egalitarian and generous and Nick is too. They are couple who are sincere and become besotted because they recognize and admire the fine traits in each other.
at first was just going to give her the money. He changed his mind after talking to his brother. They married and thought it would be for convenience only. They had no problem sexual but each thought they had another person in their life. He also had not told her he had his daughter by a former mistress living with him. They begin to care for one another but took them awhile to see that they loved each other . The story has secondary characters which added to the story one ending up in a happy ever after. I like the author's work and marriage of convenience romances are my favorite.
Lady Fiona must marry a rich man to save her brother. A ransom is beyond the exhausted resources of her family. However, she proposes to the wealthy, Nicholas Birmingham, who in the Regency era is considered not of the ton. They marry across these artificial class lines and grow toward trust.
Great book with lots of twists and turns that keep you wondering if they will find out how much they do love each other.
