From shopkeeper… To Duke’s wife
When Beatrix, Duchess of Howden, writes to her estranged husband offering a divorce, she’s stunned when he arrives on her doorstep with a different proposition: a six-week marriage trial! Quinton Roxbury seems cold and inscrutable, but Beatrix gradually realises his rough exterior hides a heavy burden. As their connection deepens, dare she trust him with her own scandalous past and risk the marriage she never knew she wanted?
Absolutely totally fabulous!
Beatrix has run away from her arranged marriage and is now living in Bath. Thing is that she ran away after the wedding and is actually married and her husband Quinton has come to claim her and making her a deal, if she lives with him for 6 weeks and still wants to go back to her life in Bath then she is allowed to do so and he will procure a divorce for them but first she must give their marriage a chance
I loved Beatrix, she might not have come from an upper class background but she has class and although nervous is able to stand up for herself when she needs to. She doesn’t expect to like Quin but she is quickly surprised and her developing relationship with him and her discovery of herself as person makes her a brilliant character
Quin was fabulous, I totally loved him! I mean at times he would do things that would bug me but then he would do something that made Beatrix happy and more confident. He struggles with his emotions and she forces him to confront himself but this more in depth look at his life just made me love him more
There is a lot of emotion in this book and I was constantly being pulled from one emotion to another, often in the space of a few pages but I think that pulled me in even further and made me totally addicted to this book
I would recommend it to so many people but especially those who love a romance with a lot of drama, an amazing cast of characters and a story that will suck you in and not let you go
