From nationally best-selling author Rebecca Hagan Lee comes a romance set in England during the 1790s. The Earl of Weymouth insists his son marry before going off to fight the French. Lady Tressingham insists her daughter marry as soon as possible as well. The children, however, are very resistant to the institution of marriage. But they do wed as a matter of convenience. When Griffen returns from war, though, he's a different man than before.

Slow start

This book is overall pretty good. The problem with it is that the author takes so long in setting up the story and the characters that you are likely to become bored before things really take off. However the ending leaves you wanting to know where the next book will take the story.
I hope that the publisher creates an audio version of "God's Concubine" which is the next book.
