Summary

A rake and an independent female find themselves tangled in the web of a marriage of convenience....

Lord Heath Knight is the quintessential wastrel second son. He has spent his youth raking and making merry to be as opposite of his brother as possible. When he finds himself almost dead, his dictatorial older brother has had enough and issues an edict for him to marry or be cut off. Heath decides to marry the most unsuitable lady he can in order to vex his brother the duke.

Cecilia Dudley is an heiress with a catch - her father is a cit. Her dowry is so vulgar that she has decided she would rather avoid marriage in favor of an independent life where she can live as she likes. When she suddenly finds herself married, she quickly realizes a marriage of convenience is not so convenient.

Heath quickly realizes he cannot ignore his new wife. Cecilia cannot accept his wild past and the baggage that follows him. Will Cecilia be able to resist the charms of a seasoned rogue?

Better than the first book

I couldn'† warm to the heroine who is tedious and totally undeserving of the hero. I was also puzzled at what he was supposed to have done that warranted an apology.

This was nice!

Alex Wyndham obviously was perfect. I loved his voice for Heath.

I was a little shocked at how much I liked Heath considered his role in the previous book, but he was actually the saving grace. Largely, I thought there was a lot to like in this but couldn’t quite connect to Cecilia’s mercurial feelings for most of the story.

This was a vast improvement from the last book though and I look forward to the rest of the series.

A very good read

This is part of a regency family saga. Reform of rakes, helping orphans and fallen women etc. Well read with characters you can believe in.

Beautiful Storyline

This book 2 of the Knight brothers, is far superior to the first. Although it also gives us an opportunity to further plumb the characters that we met before and are drawn closer to them.

Heath is far deeper and lovelier than you first imagine him to be, and you can see both he and his brother the Duke mellowing...

Cecelia is very well written, with such a level of both maturity (& confused innocence), that you easily forget that she is just barely 18 years old. Closest in age to Eugenia, yet eons older! We also get to meet the next brother - Philip, albeit briefly - and learn a little more about Edward, whom I believe has the next story...

Great story, exciting characters, amazing narrator

I'm listenting to all the Knights books in order...this book was #2. I really really like this series so far. Ms. Johns is a very creative writer and her characters are well-developed. And of course Alex Wyndham is like icing on a delicious cake. Now...I'm on to Knight #3. Thank you EJ and AW for such great entertainment.

Narrator…

When Alex Wyndham narrates a book, it is a winner! He gives his hero characters wit, sassiness, sexuality, kindness and so much more. I have never been disappointed listening to a book narrated by him. He absolutely breathes life into a book, you just hate for it to end.

Enjoyable

Good story, clean romance. Surprised at how much I came to like Heath. After the first book, I didn’t think it was possible but the author managed to win me over.

Looking forward to the next book!
