From the Back Cover

Annabel is about to marry the perfect man . . .

The last thing Miss Annabel Wheaton desires is true love. She learned the hard way that love makes a woman foolish and leads only to heartache. That’s why she agreed to marry an earl who needs her money. He’s got a pedigree and a country estate, and he won’t ever break her heart. There’s only one problem . . .

Christian isn’t about to let her marry that pompous prig . . .

Christian Du Quesne, Duke of Scarborough, thinks the stubborn heiress is about to make the biggest mistake of her life, and he’s determined to stop her. Tempting beautiful women is Christian’s forte, after all. When her family offers him a nice sum of money to stop the wedding, he’s happy to accept.

Falling in love with Annabel was never supposed to be part of the bargain . . .

Format: Mass Market Paperback
America heiress Annabel Weston is determined to marry a titled gentleman to help provide a better coming out for her younger sister, following her own humiliating episode. Even though Annabel is beyond wealthy, everyone still thinks of her as 'white trash' from the backwaters of Mississippi and Annabel dreams of a better life in England and just knows a title will do that. She meets the Earl of Rumsford and believes all her hopes are coming true much to the dismay of her uncle who sees Rumsford as the fortune hunter he is. Her uncle concocts a plan with the help of the dashing Duke of Scarborough, Christian De Quesne who also happens to be in great need of funds but has no desire to marry again after his disastrous first marriage. But Annabels uncle makes too good of an offer to Christian that he can not refuse and he reluctantly agrees to board the ship bound for England and try to stop the wedding.

When Annabel and Christian first meet the sparks fly right away but Annabel shoves them away as she believes her fiance is perfect. But the more little snippets that Christian feeds to her about how 'perfect' Rumsford is, the more her cold feet start to show up until on the day of her wedding she is seriously considering crying off. She bucks up though and the resulting actions are quite funny and put Annabel and Christian in quite an awkward position. As they move forward with their lives and try to put the scandal to rest, their feelings deepen and they try to ignore them but fate has other ideas naturally.

Laura Lee Guhrke has written another excellent, unique story set in the fascinating time period of the early 1900's.

The premise of this HR, that of American heiresses marrying into the British peerage at the turn of the century, has always interested me. Edith Wharton's unfinished novel was made into a pretty decent miniseries The Buccaneers. The Earl of Grantham of Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey has an American wife whom he married to shore up his estate and happily found true love with her. Daisy Goodwin has an OK novel about the same theme: The American Heiress: A Novel. So I was all settled in with this Guhrke book to enjoy some Edwardian romance.

Heroine and heiress Annabel Wheaton grew up dirt poor in Mississippi but unexpectedly came into a fortune when her father (long divorced from her mother) dies in Alaska, leaving her his gold mines. Very nice! Unfortunately, she learns that money does not necessarily buy acceptance in society, as the upper-class snobs of New York City still do not want to associate with her.

What to do? How about buying herself a title and a place in British society? It's all the rage, after all. Annabel finds Bernard, who's an impoverished earl. They're to be married shipboard on the way to England but her uncle Arthur doesn't like Bernard and offers an impoverished British duke, our hero Christian DuQuesne, lots of money to talk Annabel out of getting married.

Christian agrees because his estate is badly in need of funds but he has vowed never to marry for money again.

I have just finished reading a pile of new publications from a lot of my all time favourite authors such as Laura, and I am beginning to wonder if a lot of them are beginning to reach their "sell by" date...and sadly, I am beginning to wonder that about Laura. The last few books she has written have lost their edge and originality, which is a real shame because I adore her earlier books. This book isn't bad...it just doesn't stand out amongst similar story lines. For Laura at her best, read The Marriage Bed (Avon Romantic Treasure) or And Then He Kissed Her.

In 1904 on board the Atlantic Ocean liner, nouveau riche American heiress Annabel Wheaton knows she still has Mississippi mud running through her veins as the New York Knickerbocker snobs reminded her, but will marry into respectability. Her wedding to impoverished womanizing Lord Bernard Rumsford will give her what she craves. Bernard with one dance in Saratoga after three years of ostracizing made the redneck relevant and now they will marry on the ship at sea.

A week earlier, her Uncle Arthur wanted the fortune-hunter Rumsford out of his niece's life as he wants better for her. He hired the Duke Christian Du Quesne to prevent the wedding. Christian succeeds in his task, but now covets being the groom to the affluent steel magnolia. However, a raging Annabelle rejects his proposal as the ducal rake, unsure why he feels the way he does, has fallen in love with the American from Goosebend.

Although the premise of competing rakes chasing after the money of an affluent country bumpkin is not new (see Bedtime Story), talented Laura Lee Guhrke provides a fresh exciting Edwardian Era romance. Filled with humor and heart, fans will root for the heroine who as a rebel with a cause fights for what she wants; though her choice seems between two Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Trouble At The Wedding is a delightful romantic comedic historical.
