Her marriage of convenience seems far too convenient . . .

Desperation drove Cecilia Mallory to seek a union with a stranger—one who would wed her sight unseen and grant her full access to her inheritance with no expectations whatsoever. She anticipated, perhaps, an older, undesirable, equally desperate husband—never the young, vibrant, and devastatingly attractive man who answered her call. What could such a man really be after?

Unknown to Cecilia, Viscount Michael Blackthorne, a soldier and gentleman, owes a debt of honor to Lady Cecilia's father, and granting her unusual request to wed seemed a worthy way to repay it. But an unseen threat perilously close at hand is convincing Michael thathis true responsibility is to protect the beautiful, warm-hearted lady he has married . . . the woman he is unexpectedly coming to love.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jun 18, 2012 – Callen (Every Scandalous Secret) launches a series with a charming Victorian romance that might be called the case of the mail-order groom. Recently orphaned Lady Cecilia Mallory wants to run her late father’s earldom free of a meddling guardian. Sgt. Michael Blackthorne, a viscount and her father’s best friend, is on permanent assignment in India, and Cecilia thinks he’s her father’s age and likely to “die sooner rather than later, to be blunt about it,” so in a diverting about-face from tradition, Cecilia proposes a marriage by proxy. He consents, as a favor in memory of Lord Apperton. All is well for the fiercely independent Cecilia until Blackthorne is injured and returns to England—specifically, Apperton Hall—to recuperate. Hilarity ensues when Blackthorne encounters the beautiful woman he’d assumed was a plain frump and she meets the ruggedly handsome young man she’d believed was elderly. The lively banter and mild suspense are certain to entertain aficionados of historical romance.

Very, very, very boring

I always wonder how writers get such horrible, boring books published. This is one of those books!

Good read with a good mystery.
