Summary

He had already made up his mind about her...then she changed it.

Thrice wedded, but never bedded, Mathilde Martindale has long lived in the shadow of her indomitable mother, and meekly done as she was told. Until one day she decides to become mistress of her own destiny and leave the royal court to find her own path.

Married by proxy, Lord Martindale has never even met his bride of three years. Wed as part of a peace treaty, he bitterly resents the mercenary wife who cares only for wealth and prestige. And then he meets her....

Contains mature themes.

Enjoyable story

I enjoyed this story, and the plot developed enough to truly hold my attention until the end, rather than being tepid like many historical romances. I liked how the characters grew through the story, too.

Pretty standard

Absolutely.. as expected. Not a shocking twist to the story, nor a huge disappointment. It was well written, but utterly cliché. If you like mushy with a little bit of smut, then this is the book for you. You know what you’re going to get. Slight angst before everything comes good at the end. But not so much that you worry for them..

You won’t be on the edge of your seat, but you probably won’t be bored enough to switch it off. It’s essentially a Sunday afternoon movie on a rainy weekend. Reasonably enjoyable

Alice Coldbreath is the best!

I simply adore Alice Coldbreath! If you like historical fiction with steamy romance, she's the author for you! I can't wait for the rest of the series on audible

All about sex

Half the book is sex or talking about sex. So freaking boring. Story is stupid and juvenile.

Good Narration...Good Book

Actually, I’m surprised this book hasn’t been read by more people. I like Alice Coldbreath’s writing. Yes, there’s sex, yes, there’s intrigue. It’s well done with humor. I plan to read more of her work.
