Lord Trent Hawthorne couldn't be happier he is not the duke in the family. Free to manage his small estate and take his time discovering the life he wants to lead, he has grand plans of someday wooing and falling in love with the woman of his choice. When he finds himself honor bound to marry a woman he barely knows, his dream of a loving marriage like his parents' seems lost forever.
Life for Lady Adelaide Bell was easier when she hid in her older sister's shadow--which worked until her sister got married. But even with her socially ambitious mother's focus entirely on her, the last thing she expected was a marriage of convenience before she's been introduced to society.
With nothing going as expected, can Trent and Adelaide's marriage of obligation survive their own missteps and the pressures of London society to grow into a true meeting of hearts and minds?
"The third book in Hunter's Hawthorne House series is surprisingly poignant. The exploration into how to grow a relationship is at times raw and painful, but ultimately redemptive and meaningful. . . . The ending is beautiful and touching."--RT Book Reviews

Lady Adelaide Bell is certainly not known for bravado, her quiet, unassuming beauty has kept her nearly invisible from society, primarily as a result of her mother's determination to display Adelaide's older and more accomplished sister, desperate to improve her own standing by marrying her daughters to rich, titled husbands. Her mother's scheming seems to pay off when Adelaide's uncommon affection for gathering mushrooms in obscure locations, produces the desired nuptials; Adelaide finds herself married to the young lord next door; Trent Hawthorne, a handsome, carefree younger brother of the Duke, who has no idea what to do with a wife, should he even want one.
Lord Trent Hawthorne always dreamed that he would marry the love of his life, but along the way God intervened and gifted him with someone totally unexpected; the quite lovely, but very lonely Lady Adelaide. Clumsily attempting to navigate a marital relationship with a virtual stranger, he improvises a plan which surprises everyone, especially Adelaide, when he decides to "court" his wife. Obviously, Trent has a lot to learn about love.
This sometimes endearingly awkward story is more than entertaining, since who could have imagined that a love affair and pineapples would have anything in common? Kristi Ann Hunter has once again proven herself to be a writer who can take Regency romance to an entirely new level.
I received a copy of this book from Net Galley. The opinions expressed are entirely my own.
I found Trent's desire to court his wife adorable and romantic. I could relate to Adelaide's insecurities and had an intense dislike of her mother. Hunter nails these characters, their desires, and their fears, making them very believable. And while I still love the first book of this series the most, it was wonderful to finally see Trent receive his happily ever after with such a deserving woman. His tender treatment and protection of her made him the hero we already believed he could be.
As always, Mrs hunter writes amazing stories!!! Thank you for writing fabulous Christian-romance. Now, everyone is waiting for Griffiths story (he is my favorite character by the way:)
*The second and elegant facade.
*This is the third. (an uncommon courtship)
*And the fourth one is an inconvenient beauty ( which I can't wait to buy and read)
I really loved this book for many reasons.
It's full of Innocense which we lost now.
It doesn't have the cheesy romance which we are encountering in some books.
It has many smiles and happy moments.
It's a story about second son of Duke who is so optimistic and full of dreams, who got trapped with bookish, neglected daughter in some ruins and ended up marrying her with no previous love as he used to dream.
It's a book to keep with emotions, ups and downs with family strength to help to make this marriage a happy one.
In general its abook to keep.
