My thanks to the author for my copy of the book

Marry in haste. Fall in love at leisure?

Angeline Carlow’s hasty marriage to her childhood best friend Jason, the Duke of Rotherton, was purely practical. She knew that he could never love her the way that he loved his late wife. Yet in her new husband’s month-long absence, she’s found her place as mistress of their estate. Now he’s back, just as guarded but undeniably handsome, can Angel find her place as his wife — and boldly claim their wedding night?

πŸ“– My Review..

It is no secret that I love a regency romance and have done since my early teens when I discovered Georgette Heyer and Barbara Cartland. More years have passed that I care to remember and I'm still enamoured of a good historical romance and what is always guaranteed from this talented author is a good story, well told.

Angeline Carlow is taken for granted by her family so when Jason, Duke of Rotherton offers her marriage, Angeline accepts even though she knows that for Jason this is merely a marriage of convenience. However, as time progresses time and fate have a very different idea for Jason and Angeline. Wed in Haste to the Duke is easily one of those books which I read entirely in one sitting which always makes me feel a bit guilty as I know how long this author spends on her writing and research and for me to fly through the book at speed feels a bit unfair to her. However, impeccable research pays off as she, once again, plunges us into the world of Regency romance, which she creates so diligently, and which once started , I can't put down.

A gentle love story, with a little bit of spice and oodles of passion, Wed in Haste to the Duke is as heartwarming as it is heart-affirming and is a lovely addition to this author's catalogue of Regency Romances.
