One of my biggest problems is the glaring anachronisms. Here are just a few: He seemed pleased by her comment. "Never let them see you sweat." * He opened his daily planner so he could pencil in his appointments. * "You sure do a lot of networking when you're here," Jeremiah said.
Really. In 1899? There is no excuse for this kind of sloppy writing.
Most offensive, though, was the author's blatant attempt to compare this "novel" to Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew." You would do well to download and read the original - for free. Granted, "An Inconvenient Marriage" was only 99¢. I want my 99¢ back.
The story is supposed to take place in 1899, but the author has not done enough resarch into this era to make it beliveable. The language and vocabulary used was way too modern. Modern day colloquialisms have no place in a "historical" novel. There is mention "plastic eggs" (really?). The description of the clothing was quite vauge. Basically most of the story could have taken place between 1950 and 1980 and it would have been more belivable, just replace the hired buggy with an automobile. I was seriously waiting for the mention of a "copy machine" or a "telephone".
The main character is a well to do gentelman, who likes to impress his buisness clients and yet he doesn't know how to ride a horse. A wealthy gentleman would certainly know how to ride a horse, it would be like any man today not knowing how to drive a car.
Jake's mother has died and left him some money, which he wisely invested. Now, he hears news his estranged father has died as well. Jake's father has left him a large sum of money, but there are some rules he needs to follow first. According to the will, Jake needs to marry a virgin and he will get half of the money, then he needs to stay married for six months, and he can have the rest of the money. Jake agrees to this and right away thinks of Sue and her financial situation. He figures he can have a platonic business arrangement with her, they can get married and they can annul the marriage after the six months are up. This way, they both get money and everyone is happy. Sue agrees to marry him.
At first Sue and Jake just want to keep the relationship platonic, but little by little, their feelings change.
I really enjoyed An Inconvenient Marriage, it was well written, romantic and funny. The storyline was great and I liked the characters.
as to men and women things are not that much different.
To me when I read this, I was thinking as to women's worth. Jake made her feel special. That's
what most women want from THEIR man. Even years ago there were women who stayed single to be
able to do what they loved. Do you really think all the things we see today started today?
I loved the book and reading it made me feel good. I didn't care if I knew how the story ended. If
it has been a different ending, I would not have felt so GOOD.

I read this whole series - all set in the late 1800's/early 1900's. Since they were "period" novels, it was my expectation that the language should align to the period... Read morePublished 4 months ago by TLMinAZ
