There is more to this story than just a marriage of convenience, there is a bit of crime, drama, and mystery too.
We as readers learn the importance of communication, compassion, forgiveness, trust, and grace.
Both books have similar story line ... the Hero seeking a bride for his own purpose. In Elizabeth Rolls' book - His Convenient Marchioness - The Hero (Lord Hunt) was looking for a bride to give him an heir. The Heroine (Emma) was a widow and had 2 children. The interactions of the children is highly entertaining and make the book an easy read. On the other hand, this book - A Mother For His Family - that has a similar story line with the Hero (Lord Ardoch, John) looking for a bride for his children, written by Susanne Dietze, is slow reading and has God written in every page, or mentioned in every few paragraphs of the story. Also, the Heroine (Helena) has such an insipid character that you will doze off while reading it and find it hard to empathize with her.
The Heroine (Helena) had fallen from grace as she was seduced by a scoundrel (Frederick Coles). Her parents hurriedly married her off to a lord in Scotland (Lord John Ardoch). Hero (John) had 4 children and he needed a wife to help manage his children. His children was a handful to manage and the Heroine (Helena) took some time to gain the children's trust and acceptance. In the meantime, the Hero (John) was blackmailed with threat of exposing his wife (Helena) scandal. He agreed to pay the blackmailer as he thought it his duty to protect his wife. As you can see, the backbone of this story is simple and can be a good book to read with better dialogue written and better self -reflection / inner thoughts of Hero & Heroine. However, the character given to the Heroine (Helena) is so insipid that you find it very hard to empathize with her and to cheer her on. Besides, both Hero & Heroine are too devout a Christian for a Regency period romance. Every thoughts and reflections of the lead character are interspersed with God. In every few paragraph, God is mentioned. Example: "Her fingers itched to slap his handsome face. God help me. " or "She blinked. Even if John didn't return home until late, she would not be alone. God was with her, a comforting companion and strength even if she couldn't see him. Or- with her heart skittering with terror at seeing Frederick again - feel God with her. "
This book is probably meant for readers who are staunch / devout Christians, and the author must be one herself since she has written God in every page and thoughts. Instead of the Heroine going to the library to get a normal book to read, the author has the Heroine reading a bible! Unless you are a devout Christian or like having God in your romance story, this book is not for you.
