Some might consider him a bit of a beast. Others knew him to be particular and demanding. The Marquess of Penrith didn’t really care. After returning from war. All he wanted was peace and quiet. But, duty and honor demanded that he marry the young Miss Davis. An obligation that could not be denied.
Luckily, marriage did not equate to love.
Miss Catherine Davis dreaded the thought of marrying such a man. But what choice did she have. Penniless, without family. Her options were limited. The fact that he was extremely handsome, powerful, and rich, only made things worse.
Two people from different worlds, forced together, both searching for happiness. Perhaps they can only find it by coming together.
I really enjoyed the characters and their story even though our hero more than once made me want to kick his ...shin...because he obviously has a bit of a problem getting close to people and, well, you know the kind. In this case though, his problems at least made sense and he (and the author) wasn't milking it ad nauseam but he realized at least that he might be hurting his wife. And his wife, well, she is just sweet and kind and you just have to love her! Despite her personal circumstances, she isn't someone who just rolls over when she is pushed but she stands up to her husband. Not always but when it counts. The ending - well, miracles happen and when it is the good kind of miracles, I'll take them.
So far so good. Unfortunately, the book would definitely profit from some serious proofreading. The typos were the least of my concerns in this case but the punctuation was a mess. A mess meaning that it was really difficult to read and enjoy reading due to the punctuation. The sentences were cut off or cut in two or three parts, periods instead of a comma and so on.
The story itself would have been nice but this made it really hard to read.
