AN INFAMOUS MARRIAGE
Genre: Historical Romance, E-book, England
Fraser creates an intriguing story with a fast pace, but the connection between the principal characters occasionally lacks spark. The transition from adversaries to friends to lovers seems a bit formulaic and drawn out for true believability. However, Fraser infuses enough chemistry between the protagonists to foster interest in their fate. Hours of engrossing page-turning await the patient reader.
Jack Armstrong marries widow Elizabeth Hamilton so that his sick mother will have a companion while he’s on campaign in Canada. They don’t forge a proper marriage before their separation, a week after they are wed, but the start of a lovely friendship begins through their correspondence. That is, until Elizabeth hears gossip about Jack’s social exploits overseas. Once he returns home, Jacks discovers the woman he wed is not pale and meek, but rather a woman of pride, beauty and spirit. Will Elizabeth let Jack prove he is truly committed to their marriage? (CARINAPRESS.COM, dl. $5.99)
