75 in ’13: The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife

Which one was too proud and which one was too prejudiced? Wrong book?

Which one was too proud and which one was too prejudiced? Wrong book?

For the thirty-seventh book in the challenge, I read The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife (Regency Collection #1) by Ruth Ann Nordin.

You know, it started out pretty well. Girl of marriageable age with a horribly manipulative family, boy with money and title needing a wife to retain his respectability for social reasons, A Great And Insurmountable Misunderstanding twisted by aforementioned horrible family resulting in their hasty marriage, much tension and confusion and bruised egos. And then…?? It’s like they hit the 75% mark, looked at their watches, muttered a collective “shit!” and suddenly changed their minds and resolved everything. Oh happy day!

The writing is otherwise fine, the characters slightly more rounded than a number of other books in this genre, but hardly deep. I kept waiting for more of…well, anything, really, but was left vaguely unsatisfied. I gave it 2 out of 5 stars.
