THE NOTORIOUS MARRIAGE
Genre: Historical Romance
Eleanor Trevithick, daughter of the late Viscount Trevithick and younger sister of the current earl, is about to be married to an elderly lech. To escape the arranged marriage, she runs to her friend Kit Mostyn and begs him to help her.
Kit has other obligations, but does love Eleanor. They marry and spend a wonderful few days together before he disappears. He returns five months later to find his wife has a fast reputation and rumors are flying that he spent the last months with certain ladies in Italy. The reason for his absence is not for him to tell, and Eleanor refuses to tell him the truth about her reputation.
This is a delightful Regency romp of manners, mores and misunderstandings. Cornick's characters come to life in this charming, well-written story. SENSUAL (Jun., 296 pp., $5.50)
