Marriage of Inconvenience
By Cheryl Bolen
Proposing to the Earl of Aynsley seems a sensible—if unconventional—solution to
Miss Rebecca Peabody's predicament. As a married woman, she will be free to keep
writing her essays on civil reform. Meanwhile, the distinguished widower will
gain a stepmother for his seven children and a caretaker for his vast
But the earl wants more than a convenient bride. He craves a true
partner, a woman he can cherish. To his surprise, the bookish Miss Peabody
appears to have every quality he desires…except the willingness to
trust her new husband. Yet despite his family's interference, and her steadfast
independence, time and faith could make theirs a true marriage of hearts.
At the end of this book, Cheryl Bolen wrote: "Though I have been writing and
publishing romance novels set in Regency England since 1998, this is my first
one for Love Inspired Historical, and I feel I've found my home with these
wholesome stories." I couldn't agree more and hope this is the first of many
Regencies Cheryl writes for this line.
I have been a fan of the Regency
romance since reading my first Georgette Heyer book over 45 years ago, and am
thrilled to see them in an inspirational format. Marriage of Inconvenience has
an interesting plot, good description of the times, and the writing style flows
well. I highly recommend "Marriage of Inconvenience" to all who enjoy Christian romance, especially Regencies.
