inspirational format Marriage of Inconvenience has an interesting plot, good description of the times, and the writing style flows well Very enjoyable read I generally enjoy a good clean romance , and Christian themes do not feel out of place in a British regency setting Our main character, the spinster, never makes a bad choice and her instincts are always right, when it comes to her stepchildren,

motivation to marry in order to carry on writing her radical essays under a penname But why do that when you can instead devote yourself to your husband and family Once she is happy, she never writes again That snuffed out the joy I took in the character Proposing To The Earl Of Aynsley Seems A Sensible If Unconventional Solution To Miss Rebecca Peabody S Predicament As A Married Woman, She Will Be Free To Keep Writing Her Essays On Civil Reform Meanwhile, The Distinguished Widower Will Gain A Stepmother For His Seven Children And A Caretaker For His Vast EstateBut The Earl Wants Than A Convenient Bride He Craves A True Partner, A Woman He Can Cherish To His Surprise, The Bookish Miss Peabody Appears To Have Every Quality He Desires Except The Willingness To Trust Her New Husband Yet Despite His Family S Interference, And Her Steadfast Independence, Time And Faith Could Make Theirs A True Marriage Of Hearts I enjoyed this book Rebecca s early scenes were very funny, from her laundry list proposal to her missing glove to her delightfully mixed ideas of propriety One simply did not bring one s maid when one wished to propose marriage Her character later shifted into aconventional role, but I still appreciated her gentleness and willingness to both see and help bring out the good in everyone around her.I liked the slow and gentle romance that developed between Rebecca and Lord Aynsley and I enjoyed this book Rebecca s early scenes were very funny, from her laundry list proposal to her missing glove to her delightfully mixed ideas of propriety One simply did

children as well and would have liked to seeof them Shook my head for a moment at the thought of a six year old reading Homer, then remembered I first read Little Women at five Never mind I m with you, Alex I was surprised and pleased with the way the author handled Peter s character and his relationship with Emily I also very much appreciated that Lord Aynsley s hurt over his former wife s conduct was not the result of marital infidelity.The one thing I struggled with most about this book was that while Rebecca felt guilty at the idea of marrying a man she didn t love, she never questioned the idea of marrying a man who had admittedly turned his back on God I appreciated the way she was able to help bring him back to faith, but it bothered me that she never even hesitated at the idea Her only worry seemed to be that God might not approve of their marriage because she wasn t in love For being such a strong Christian, as well as for the time they were living in, it just didn t feel right Unfortunately, this issue ended up knocking my rating down Didn t really like this book.Didn t like how the heroine was an American come to reform England when the Americas at the time were rife in social injustice Someone once told me never to discuss politics and religion at the dinner table that should go for lighthearted fiction novels too.Didn t like how perfect the heroine was No one is that saintly The fact that by her late twenties her biggest sin was concealing a self righteous alter ego did not sit right.Didn t like what a spoilt brat t Didn t really like

s politics.And I didn t like how religion was introduced to the book The prayers seemed superficial, so when God grants the characters what they pray for It diminishes the fact that life is unfair and hard and people don t always get what they want.I did like the premise of a woman marrying into a family that s already set up and dealing the struggles that were presented Marriage of Inconvenience

that he wants to marry again Shortly after he meets with Rebecca he finds out that he has loststaff due to his children s behavior He really could use a wife to run his estate These two strongly opinionated people marry to gain what they both are in need of or what they think they are in need of.Rebecca Ansley get to know each otherafter they arrive at the Ansley estate Rebecca also takes to his children instantly There is some drama with the daughter I really enjoyed watching this family form and adjust to each other not only as husband wife but also with the children As I said this the first I have read by Cheryl Bolen but I know I would pick up another one of her books again Rebecca Peabody was the studious, practical, pretty sister of Maggie, the Countess of WarwickShe loved her sister dearly but she was tired of being under her guardianship and having to adhere to rules of propriety as well as running up against her brother in law s politics She wants a family of her own and

Maggie, thinking since she and her sister look so much alike, if you discount her spectacles, he would be amenable to marry her and she can continue her writing under the alias of P Corpus, male political essayist, plus she likes children and he has seven He first refuses her, but on further consideration and figuring out her literary secret he agrees All the children adore her except his daughter who was used to running the house and who creates a confrontational situation I enjoyed this novel, my only concern was in the Counterfeit Countess taking place in 1811, Rebecca was eighteen, and in this novel taking place in 1813 , she is eight and twenty Overall, I thought this was a decent book The characters were complex and I liked the addition of politics it is not a common component in romances, especially historical romances Aynsley John was a bit boring but in the context of the story and the personality of Rebecca, it worked well His family was a fine combination of delightful, antagonistic, and colorful I loved that Chuckie wanted to be called by a different name Rebecca was able to handle all matters of the home and ready made fam Overall, I thought this was a

Rebecca was able to handle all matters of the home and ready made family easily, except for Emily, that seemed almost too easily The lack of trust was a good tension in the relationship, I liked that he knew beforehand but didn t tell her, hoping that she would share it on her own and they could experience it together but then knowing and having it build up that there was still a breach between them The conflict with Chuckie was emotionally involving Can we truly grow to love each other over time Rebecca Peabody wants a marriage that would provide financial independence and some personal freedom Rebecca is not a wild, untamed miss just a woman with a purpose that knew want she wanted to achieve in life What Rebecca found in John Compton, the Fifth Earl Aynsley was a man who needed a

lives and resources was a workable arrangement If only everything were that uncomplicated Rebecca too soon realized mothering 7 step children was a large mountain to climb but one she was going to get a handle on The boys may be mischievous and her stepdaughter a little troublesome but each of them brought joy to her life and accomplishing the task of winning them over was her new mission Convincing her new husband that he should reorganize some of his business ventures wasdaunting than first anticipated Aynsley knows his wife has a hidden agenda and perhaps a secret or two but how far should he let her go in running the household show Time will test the character of Rebecca and Aynsley both and their relationship will have a push and pulltimes than not but it may be the differences that pull them together not tear them apart Cheryl Bolen has captured the spirit of change, the art of martial compromise, and the crazy path love takes each of us on This one is okay Not awful I kept on til the end but not really good either because I started kinda speed reading about half way through The storyline was promising, I think I just didn t particularly like the telling of it Or the writing style either, I guess.
