Iain Hunter is a steam ship builder. He is strong willed, confident, smart and does not suffer fools or manipulations well. While he was not born with a title he has more integrity and honor than a large portion of the ton. Unfortunately, he needs the assistance of Cordelia's father to help pave the way for his business to grow.
Theirs is a hot steamy and intense relationship. Their one night together was cataclysmic and neither of them has forgotten it. When they meet again a year later things are still just as explosive. Her father manipulates them to gain position and to get Cordelia off his hands. Their road to happiness is filled with jealousy, triumphs, misunderstandings, personal growth and revelations and steamy kisses. Iain finds he wants and needs to take care of and nurture Cordelia, something they have both lacked in their lives. This is a fast paced story that uncovers some of the Armstrong family secrets and reminds us that families are complicated. This is the fifth in this series and I have now read two of them. I plan to catch up and read the others. Ms. Kaye has created complex characters, relationships and brilliant stories that make you want to stay and enjoy longer.

Cordelia has learnt some life lessons by now and met some men, calling herself an ordinary widow. She's been travelling and producing guidebooks for lady travellers. In her father's office she meets Iain Hunter, a Scots engineer who designs paddle steamers. Without knowing that the two have already met, Lord Armstrong orders Iain to marry Cordelia if he wants to secure a contract to build boats for Araby countries with which the Armstrongs have family connections. Secretly Iain gets the haughty Cordelia to agree on a pretended betrothal.
I liked all the travel and contrasts in this tale, which moves from Scotland to the Red Sea in gradual stages, including a look at the shipbuilding yards on the Isle of Dogs in London. This departure from the normal period scenes of balls and card parties made UNWED AND UNREPENTANT memorable and a very good read. There is plenty of adult behaviour as it turns out that the two can't keep their hands off each other, though they are determined not to marry. I enjoyed this book.
Lady Cordelia Armstrong went her own way years ago, but she is finally back and asking her father to let her see her family. Her father has his own plans for her. Will she give into them in order to see her sisters? Or will she walk out again?
Iain Hunter is a very skilled shipbuilder, and Cordelia’s father has plans that involve Iain right now, and in the future. When
Cordelia and Iain discover that one of the things that her father wants is to announce an engagement between the two of them they devise a plan of a fake engagement to appease him. There is just one problem, the more time they spend together traveling to Arabia, the more they find that it may be more than they bargained for to just walk away as they planned.

The Armstrong Sisters Series Book 5
Lady Cordelia Armstrong was not going to marry someone of her father's choosing. She could make the best choices for herself, or so she thought. After ten years of separation from her family, she decided to come home to England. To face her biggest fear, her father.
Iain Hunter was a shipbuilder. He needed Lord Armstrong's connections to go and talk with Arabian prince about building ships for them. What he didn't expect was to run into the woman he had met a year ago in Glasgow. A woman he had never forgotten.
Lord Armstrong fits his name well as he likes to strong arm those around him. He was falling from his political heights and an up and coming man like Iain could help him, especially if his daughter was thrown into the match. And Cordelia will agree to most anything to see her two sisters who are in Arabia. Even pretend to give up her independence.

Ten years ago Lady Cordelia Armstrong eloped rather than be forced into marriage by her father, Lord Armstrong. Now she’s back, a wealthy woman in her own right, and wants to see her brothers and sisters again. Her father agrees, on one condition - that she will agree to become betrothed with his business partner, Iain Hunter. But Lord Armstrong has no idea that the two of them have met in the past - and been lovers.
The thing I like about Marguerite Kaye’s books is that they never go in quite the way you expect them to. Cordelia and Iain are perfect for each other but Cordelia’s inability to commit, and the arrival of an ex-lover on the scene, conspire to keep the couple apart. One of the final scenes (which I won’t explain because of spoilers) is very cleverly written, with each character completely misunderstanding the other’s motivation right through to the end.
The story alternates between Cordelia’s and Iain’s point of view and moves between London, Glasgow, Zante, Cairo and Arabia. I think Cordelia is my favourite of all the Armstrong sisters. She is strong enough to stand up to her father, knows what she wants and is, as the title says, completely unrepentant for her past ‘sins’.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable read and I absolutely loved it. I’m sorry this will be the last story about Armstrong sisters but, on the other hand, they do have four half-brothers …
