Marry in Secret
Author: Anne Gracie
What I’m Talking About:
Marry in Secret was a fun, fast moving novel. Lady Rose is easily my favorite of the Rutherford sisters, and she does not disappoint in her novel. She is quick-witted, smart, and proves to be both fearsome and soft as the occasion calls for.
Thomas is cold, hard, sharp, hurt, and lost. His need for hope and love is perfectly set against Rose. Through their novel we come to understand why Rose appears cool, standoffish, and unwilling to consider a love match.
As they reconnect and rediscover one another, the hard become soft and the hurts heal. In classic Anne Gracie style, the banter is quick and fun, the chemistry intense, and the love true.
I found Marry in Secret to be a fast moving, enjoyable poolside read, and I think you will too.
My Rating: A, Loved It
About the Book:
Lady Rose Rutherford—rebel, heiress, and exasperated target of the town’s hungry bachelors—has a plan to gain the freedom she so desperately desires: she will enter into a marriage of convenience with the biggest prize on the London marriage mart.
There’s just one problem: the fierce-looking man who crashes her wedding to the Duke of Everingham — Thomas Beresford, the young naval officer she fell in love with and secretly married when she was still a schoolgirl. Thought to have died four years ago he’s returned, a cold, hard stranger with one driving purpose—revenge.
Embittered by betrayal and hungry for vengeance, Thomas will stop at nothing to reclaim his rightful place, even if that means using Rose—and her fortune—to do it. But Rose never did follow the rules, and as she takes matters into her own unpredictable hands, Thomas finds himself in an unexpected and infuriating predicament: he’s falling in love with his wife…
