Daughtry Family Series book 4

Release date 12/1/10

A price he has to pay…
He is but a pawn in someone else’s game. With no choice but to do the prince regent’s bidding, Justin Wilde must marry —marry!— a woman not of his own choosing. And for the man notoriously referred to as the Bad Baron, marriage is the last thing he wishes to consider. Especially when the bride has the beauty of an angel but the devil’s own temper…

A bed she has to lie in…
Stunned to find herself married to a stranger, Alina vows to uncover the reason behind their forced union. Yet the more time she spends with her roguish husband, the less the past seems to matter. But when the truth behind their wedding at last emerges, will it strengthen their fragile bond — or shatter their lives forever?

This is the first of this series that I have read and I will make sure to take the time and read the others (as soon as I can get through my huge tbr pile), but if like me and you are coming into the series late you can still pick this one up it reads just fine as a stand-alone, although she does bring in the other characters so if you already know their background that is just an added bonus for you.

I loved the watching the relationship grow between Alina & Justin. It begins with him trying to get back in the good graces of the prince and in order to do that (or so he believes) is to marry and protect Alina. She is just trying to get to England and away from her Aunt and towards a new future. But the sparks flew the moment they saw each other. Justin quickly figures out that he is just a pawn in a political game which he wants nothing to do with and is willing to risk any sort of relationship with Alina to avoid it. Fate though has other plans.

You will not be disappointed in this historical full of romance, espionage, intrigue, humor and friendship.

    As usual, I have a stack of her books waiting to be read. But so far, something else always caught my interest first. Though this one sounds really great. I like the married as strangers into lovers themes.
