From beguilingNew York Timesbestselling author Jane Feather comes this classic tale brimming with intrigue and passion.

A quirk of fate has made Sylvester Gilbraith the heir of his sworn enemy, the earl of Stoneridge. But there’s a catch: To claim his inheritance, he has to marry one of the earl’s four granddaughters. The magnetically handsome nobleman has no choice but to comply with the terms of the will, yet when he descends on Stoneridge Manor prepared to charm his way into a fortune, he finds that the lady who intrigues him most has no intention of becoming his bride. Maddeningly beautiful and utterly impossible, Theodora Belmont refuses to admit to the chemistry between them, even when she’s passionately locked in his embrace. But soon the day will come when the raven-haired vixen will give anything to be Sylvester’s bride—and risk everything to defend his honor . . . and his life.

I really liked this one a lot and if I could I'd rate it with 3.5 stars. This book has everything I like: a distant hero suffering from a severe head wound, a marriage of convenience and war secrets ... Read full review

Review: Valentine (V #5)

User Review  - Jennifer - Goodreads

Sylvester goes into the marriage without revealing the full details of the grandfather's will and multiple times says "But I never lied to you." That really doesn't help his case nor does it make this book quite likable. I skimmed through the last 2 thirds. It was rather tedious. Read full review
