Shipping heiress Georgiana Caversteed is done with men who covet her purse more than her person. Even worse than the ton’s lecherous fortune hunters, however, is the cruel cousin determined to force Georgie into marriage. If only she could find a way to be . . . widowed? Georgie hatches a madcap scheme to wed a condemned criminal before he’s set to be executed. All she has to do is find an eligible bachelor in prison to marry her, and she’ll be free. What could possibly go wrong?
LEAD TO TRUE AND LASTING LOVE?
Benedict William Henry Wylde, scapegrace second son of the late Earl of Morcott and well-known rake, is in Newgate prison undercover, working for Bow Street. Georgie doesn’t realize who he is when she marries him—and she most certainly never expects to bump into her very-much-alive, and very handsome, husband of convenience at a society gathering weeks later. Soon Wylde finds himself courting his own wife, hoping to win her heart since he already has her hand. But how can this seductive rogue convince brazen, beautiful Georgie that he wants to be together…until actual death do they part?
As always I want to thank Netgalley and St. Martins Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we can bring you this review.
Oh gotta love Georgie she is absolutely amazing. She is so strong and kick ass. She doesn’t put up with anything and is not afraid of showing what kind of woman she is even if that is not the norm for the time. She proves that she is a strong person and able to take care of anything she needs to without the help of a man by taking care of her family business after her fathers passing. She takes charge of her own life and does what she needs to, to keep her cousin away from her money. Benedict is a strong willed man and extremely proud. He doesn’t want to get money unless he has earned it. He wants to change the image that has been given to him and his family. He is a war hero even if he doesn’t feel like he is. This was a great book and I enjoyed every second of it
