She threatens to conquer his heart…
When Matthew Donovan, Duke of Brunswick, proposes to Sarah Townsbridge, she’s shocked. After all, she’s never met him before. One thing is clear though – he obviously needs help. So after turning him down, she decides to get to know him better, and finds out she’s right. But fixing a broken man is not the same as adopting a puppy. Least of all when the man in question has no desire to be saved.
Matthew has his mind set on Sarah. Kind and energetic, she’ll make an excellent mother. Best of all, her reclusiveness is sure to make her accept the sort of marriage he has in mind – one where they live apart. The only problem is, to convince her, they must spend time together. And the more they do, the more he risks falling prey to the one emotion he knows he must avoid at all cost: love.
Uncaged Review: A very nicely written romance
with Sarah and Matthew. I liked Sarah a lot more
than Matthew, but I think I would have understood
Matthew better had I more of his background and
the reasons that made him who he was. Matthew
is intent on never falling in love, and is not all that
likable in the majority of the book. I did come to
like him, but I never loved him.
This story is a nice original in the market of historical
romances. This was a bit of fun to watch these
two battle their way to their HEA, but they manage
to get there, even with a few fun moments. I would
have liked to see the character of Matthew flushed
out a bit more, but overall, this was a nice romance
and I look forward to more. Reviewed by Cyrene
