Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Laura Lee Guhrke comes the story of a bargain, a marriage of convenience…and the chance for love to last a lifetime.

They had a deal....

From the moment she met the devil-may-care Duke of Margrave, Edie knew he could change her life. And when he agreed to her outrageous proposal of a marriage of convenience, she was transformed from ruined American heiress to English duchess. Five years later, she’s delighted with their arrangement, especially since her husband is living on another continent.

But deals are made to be broken.…

By marrying an heiress, Stuart was able to pay his family’s enormous debts, and Edie’s terms that he leave England forever seemed a small price to pay. But when a brush with death impels him home, he decides it’s time for a real marriage with his luscious American bride, and he proposes a bold new bargain: 10 days to win her willing kiss. But is 10 days enough to win her heart?

Wonderful! Simply Wonderful!

I love anything narrated by Susan Erickson. The story line kind of started off slow but, then it gripped you to the very end.

Don't Judge The Book By The Tittle.

Don't Judge The Book By The Tittle OR You'll be dissappointed. At first I thought this is kind of light romance about how to get rid of unsuitable man for a husband, instead I find the story so charming and sweet that involve marriage of convenient and hidden dark past. My first with the story theme, as well as the author and the narrator. So happy to find it undissappointing, and so glad to spend my credit on it.

Emotional and heart breaking

this book is an erotic historical romance.

Duke of Margrave Stuart is not ready to settle down, but he is on the verge of having no money soon unless he can get rid of a few relatives that are nothing more than taking everything. But when the American heiress gives him an offer with no string attach of course he jumps at the chance to leave everything behind and continue as he was. Until an accident and he being to realize that there is more waiting for him. So he wants to have a real family, but his wife wants nothing to do with it and after he finds out why, he might have to let go of his dream to have an unconditional love with his wife.

American heiress Edie is running from something and the only way to get out of this is to marry someone who is never around. When she finds Stuart, who would rather live a life in Africa than be tied down. She has the means to help him financially and no inclination to be with any man. It is perfect and it was going great for 5 years, but now her husband wants to be a husband and break the agreement to never see each other.

A step up from describing someone breathing

I got 2/3 of the way through, but seriously, it dragged and dragged. I gave up.
