Overview

In this instant USA Today bestseller, a marriage of convenience between a duke's niece and a reformed rogue leads to a delightful battle of wills.

For Miss Charlotte Windham, the best way to maintain her spinsterhood — and her independence — is a teeny, tiny brush with scandal. She chooses wealthy, handsome upstart Lucas Sherbourne as her unwitting accomplice. He's intelligent, logical, and ambitious. What Charlotte doesn't count on is that one kiss will lead them straight to the altar.

Sherbourne has no love for polite society, nor is he keen on being anybody's husband of last resort. He is attracted to Charlotte's boldness, though — and her family's influence. Without a title, he knows he'll never truly be part of their world, even as he and Charlotte inch closer to a marriage that means much more than convenience. But a scheming business partner is about to test that tenuous trust, forcing Sherbourne to make a drastic choice: his wealth or his wife.

Grace Burrowes provides remarkable story lines and well-defined characters in every story, while imbuing each novel with authentic historical atmosphere. Bright, strong, intriguing women are drawn to compelling, humane, extraordinary men, while secondary characters provide leavening humor and/or counterpoint. Britain is more beautiful, lives are more interesting and challenging, and the little details such as scents, foodstuffs, clothing, and environs are richer and more compelling in Burrowes’ brilliantly conceived world of intertwined, loving, and complex families. It is always hard to leave that world at the end of any Burrowes story, and one wallows and savors as long as possible. Only wish Burrowes could write faster; only hope there are many more tales of Windhams and other families to come.

I haven't read the earlier books in this series, but it didn't dent my enjoyment. Two strong people with their own codes that inevitably crash.

I enjoyed this book, but it moved a bit slowly for me. I really loved the heroine; Charlotte is a wonderful character who is passionately committed to her ideals. I liked the hero, Lucas, and his obvious respect for Charlotte. Obviously, he loved her--it is a romance, after all--but he respected her intelligence, her mathematical talent, and her social graces. I don't always see that that type of respect in a romance novel, and I appreciate it very much. I do feel the pacing was off; the story dragged at times, particularly the villain subplot. It was quite obvious to me early on what his deal was, and I resented that much time being spent on that character--he was just not very interesting. Overall though, I enjoyed this book and am glad I read it. I have not read other books in this series and plan on going back and checking them out. ***I received an advance reader copy courtesy of Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.***

in a rogue of her own, miss charlotte windham finally finds a man worthy of her indomitable spirit. lucas sherbourne is wealthy but not titled. raised to be at war with the dukes of haverford, he's been much-maligned in the valley where they co-exist as unhappy neighbors, even as he's been the only person solvent enough to make sure the valley and all the people who inhabit it prosper. when lucas proposes a business arrangement of sorts, a marriage of convenience to save charlotte from matchmaking and terrible suitors, he's surprised when she rejects him. and then she kisses him. and they get caught by her aunt and uncle.and ae forced to marry anyway. lucas believes that charlotte rejected him because he isn't titled. but the truth is that charlotte is distrustful of men, especially after her dearest friend had a terrible experience and she's dedicated herself to helping women in dire straits make new lives for themselves and their illegitimate children. she doesn't believe lucas would support helping the women and children she's taken under her wing. and she doesn't disclose this until well after they are married. for all that lucas has a reputation of a hard-edged businessman, he's actually a really good guy. he does his best to meet all the impossible demands made of him, and accepts more blame than he should as things begin to go awry. he's a proud man who takes too much on when he could ask for help from his titled neighbors, who after years of strife have become friends, family even. once lucas and charlotte figure out how to communicate they realize they are very much on the same side. charlotte is the only person who sees lucas and the kindness he gifts to many who don't even realize they are in his debt. **a rogue of her own will publish on march 6, 2018. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/grand central publishing (forever) in exchange for my honest review.

 Charlotte Windham is a fierce protector of women who have found themselves in a delicate situation. She has no interest in getting married and she is the very last Windham cousin not married. However, she does need to be ruined so the men stop proposing and cornering her at various social functions. She wants to be left alone to pursue her goals of continuing her work. Lucas is the wealthy commoner who is the neighbor to the Duke of Haverford (Elizabeth Windham’s book, No Other Duke Will Do).  In that book, we met Lucas and for a good portion of the book he came across as the villain when in truth he wasn’t. He is a successful businessman who has a colliery in the process of being built. He is in town to find a business partner when he rescues Charlotte from an aggressive suitor. It doesn’t take them long before he proposes marriage, though both of them only see it as a business transaction. She is attracted to him but is worried he will try and stop her work, so initially she refuses him, but is later caught kissing him by none other than the Duke and Duchess of Windham, the scheming and matchmaking masterminds of the Windham family. Lucas and Charlotte find themselves married and on the way to Wales shortly after that. They don’t know each other and don’t know how to start. Their marriage reminded me of what marriages were actually like back then, which is sad, though theirs had a happily ever after. They grow close very slowly, but when it comes out that Lucas’ business partner is the same man who ruined Charlotte's best friend a rift arises. It seems hopeless for a few weeks but Charlotte has come to realize she really loves her husband and misses him, and he comes to realize how he wants his marriage to be and they both come to a very tentative understanding. He sets off to seek justice for Charlotte’s dead friend and the son she left behind, and in doing so, discovers he has friends in high places and not all aristocracy is evil and spoiled. I loved Charlotte’s confrontation at the end with her friend’s lover and I love that Lucas overheard it all. Priceless. Perfect. Romantic. And sweet.

I really enjoyed Charlotte and Lucas's story!! I fell in love with Charlotte and her feistiness in her sister's story, No Other Duke will Do, and was excited to read about her HEA! I don't think Lucas knew what he was getting into when he asked Charlotte to marry him. She think she ended up being much more than he bargained for and was pleasantly surprised that he might have a "real" marriage. Having seen the interactions between Lucas and Charlotte in the previous story, I knew that she was intrigued by him. I loved watching these two fall in love after starting their lives together with a marriage of convenience. I've loved the Windham stories that I've read (still need to go back and read the beginning stories...) and I hope that Burrowes will continue them. Regardless, I'm excited to see what she comes up with next!
