Heartless by Jaimey Grant
Blurb from the book:
A dark stranger....
Finding herself abandoned after the death of her father, Leandra Harcourt takes the greatest risk of her life. She accepts the marriage proposal of a complete stranger, the Duke of Derringer—a man the world calls Lord Heartless.
A heartless proposal....
A desperate girl with no prospects seems the perfect solution to Derringer's most recent problem: marry before his 30th birthday to gain his rightful inheritance, though marriage is the last thing he needs. The need to find his missing cousin takes priority over any silly marriage and he quickly abandons his new bride in the wreck of his family estate.
A perfect love....
Two people were never more suited for each other than the duke and his wife, but will they discover it before it's too late? With an assassin dogging his heels and a suitor wooing his wife, love will not have the luxury of time.
I love a good regency book and Heartless by Jaimey Grant does not disappoint! It was even better than most regencies I have read because it involved mystery, danger and secrets! Oh and a hasty marriage without knowing the other person; that is always exciting!!! The Duke of Derringer was an awesome dark lead man! Dark hair, dark clothes and a possibly a dark heart! And sweet Leandra, she was so honest, kind and forthright that one couldn't help but love her as a character! Can they let the other into their hearts? Heartless is an easy read and one that any regency or romance fan will enjoy. My only complaint is my unanswered question about the will, I am still thinking about it days later. Perhaps that question will be answered in another book! I am a new reader of author Jaimey Grant and now a new fan! I am anxious and excited to read more of her work!
I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
You can pick up your own copy of Heartless via Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
