Victoria is an appealing heroine, initially rather gauche in society principally due to the fact that her father persistently ran her down; but she blossoms after her marriage and sh I’ve been on a bit of a “marriage-of-convenience” kick of late, and this book definitely fed my craving! I do congratulate callen, though, for managing to maintain my interest in the novel to complete the story.
Again, this was definitely a failing of the characters that Callen wrote, because I know that she is most certainly able to write great chemistry and interesting characters who complement each other read His Scandal.

The Lord Next Door
The endearing words were used, but the phrasing occasionally felt awkward or stilted. The mother of three grown children, an avid crafter, singer, and outdoor enthusiast, Gayle lives in Central New York with her dog, Uma, and her husband, Jim the Romance Hero.

As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1 reading about romance 2 writing about romance and 3 talking about romance with my gals.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Never Marry a Stranger. Until she remembers her childhood friend and next door neighbour who she had a secret correspondence with.
For the Highland Weddings Series, will CatRiona’s cousin have her own book if so when will it come out? The Rose and the Shield. This book shows how cruel people can be and how love can help turn that around.
The story wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t all that entertaining. Not too far apart! He decides to marry Victoria to benefit both of them. Scandals which are made bigger by themselves and which would weigh much less on their minds if they opened up earlier to each other. But even as she strives to be the perfect wife, her calm demeanor masks a shocking secret The blurb sounded so promising but unfortunately the book did not quite live up to the promise. Secrets, misunderstanding and scandal rule their worlds but Victoria and David find each other in a nice average story.
