Married in Haste | [Cathy Maxwell]

Married in Haste

Brenn Owen, the new but impoverished Earl of Merton, is looking for a bride: one rich enough to finance his estate. When he meets Tess Hamlin, he sees a woman who is not only wealthy, but a dazzling beauty as well. To his surprise, Tess quickly accepts his proposal. But behind her eagerness lurks a secret she will do anything to hide from him. As the Earl and his bride begin their life together, their path is a passionate one, but far from smooth: haste must give way to patience and understanding.

Brenn Owen, the new but impoverished Earl of Merton, is looking for a bride - one rich enough to finance his estate. When he meets Tess Hamlin, he sees a woman who is not only wealthy, but a dazzling beauty as well. To his surprise, Tess quickly accepts his proposal. But behind her eagerness lurks a secret she will do anything to hide from him. As the Earl and his bride begin their life together, their path is a passionate one, but far from smooth: haste must give way to patience and understanding. Virginia Leishman's narration heightens the drama of each colorful exchange between the lovers.

Millions of fans agree with Romantic Times when it praises Cathy Maxwell for being an author "who understands the human heart and whose stories touch our souls". Her novels are filled with dashing, daring characters, yet their desires are universal.

What the Critics Say

"Maxwell...makes good use of her trademark clean, crisp prose style, weaving a reverse gift-of-the-magi tale set in the Black Mountains of Wales and starring two engaging and lusty protagonists." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Just an OK listen"

    A "nice" story about a fortune hunter who marries a supposed heiress who keeps secret the fact that she has lost her fortune. They fall in love anyway and live happily ever after. The end.

    "Nice reliable historical romance."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    An enjoyable evening spent listening to the book, nice narrator. I won't say it is the most memorable, but light and breezy.

    "one of the better romances"

    I enjoyed this book as it had both a decent storyline and an excellent reader when compared to other romances.

    "No more Cathy Maxwell books for me"

    The story line and writing style of this book was very much that of Catherine Cookson which I have always found rather boring. The major difference with this book, of course, is the added sex scenes which were so explicit and so repetitive that the whole thing soon became too nauseous for me to continue.
