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.
