Glee has been in love with her brother's friend Blanks forever and sees a chance when he must marry or lose his inheritance. She decides she can change him and make him fall in love with her once they're married by acting like one of the fast ladies he likes.
This just wasn't for me. It's a trope used a lot in historical romances, and the writing and characters here just didn't make it interesting. The hero and heroine are immature and Glee is just bratty. I have no idea why she wanted to run away with a stablehand, but I wish she had and left poor Blanks alone. Their acts of charity didn't add anything to the story and only make them look more superficial. This wouldn't make me read Ms. Bolen's other books. ( )

Sensual and exotic to me. A very mellow read!

Book description
HE MARRIED FOR MONEY, NOT FOR LOVE, FORTUNATELY, HIS WIFE DID QUITE THE OPPOSITE ...

Young and spirited Glee Pembroke had always been secretly in love with her brother's best friend, Gregory Blankenship. So when she learned that this dedicated bachelor must marry by his twenty-fifth birthday or lose his inheritance, she boldly proposed a marriage of convenience, while secretly planning to win his love. Knowing of her new husband's reputation as a lover of loose women, Glee decided she must become "fast" herself --- in order to capture his attention.

Though marriage to Glee did seem a sensible solution to his dilemma, Gregory had no intention of giving up his rakish ways, and he certainly wouldn't tolerate his bride gallivanting about Bath like some wanton female. Her outrageous antics were causing him no end of aggravation --- and strangely --- inspiring a jealousy he was not used to feeling. When did he become so possessive about his wife? Surely, he was not succumbing to the one condition he had so studiously avoided ... love?
