Audio: Marry in Scandal - Anne Gracie

Shy young heiress Lady Lily Rutherford is in no hurry to marry. She dreams of true love and a real courtship. But when disaster strikes, she finds herself facing a scandal-forced marriage to her rescuer, Edward Galbraith, a well-known rake. Despite his reputation Lily is drawn to the handsome Galbraith. In the gamble of her life, she agrees to marry him, hoping to turn a convenient marriage into a love match. As heir to a title, Galbraith knows he must wed, so a convenient marriage suits him perfectly. But there is a darkness in his past, and secrets he refuses to share with his tender-hearted young bride. All Lily's efforts to get close to him fall on stony ground, and in desperation she retreats to his childhood home-the place he's avoided for nearly a decade. Must Lily reconcile herself to a marriage without love? Or will Galbraith realize that this warm-hearted, loving girl is the key to healing the wounds of his past-and his heart?

Marriage of Convenience #2
Historical romance
Own

My thoughts:
I have never listened/read Anne Gracie before, but I truly enjoyed it. It felt different and more sweet than other historical romances. There was drama, but none of that two people butting heads and not talking. I kept waiting for it, and then was happy to see it not happening, lol.

But yes there is drama and quite the start! Lily is a young heiress who gets abducted. And the man doing it is a monster. I kept wondering if she would get out. Which I knew she would, but it was so intense! And Lily was the sweetest, she deserved happiness. And to get away from her aunt who calls her plump and pokes at her for not being able to read.

Edward is portrayed as the rake, but he really puts an effort into this marriage and I never saw him as a rake, instead more as she saw him. A hero who saved her. But a hero with secrets and trauma from the war. He had some things to work out before we could get a sweet HEA.

Last thoughts:
I enjoyed this story.

Narrator
Alison Larkin
She made Lily sound so happy, no that is not right, delightful, yes that is it. And like she always had a laugh close by. 

Though her voice for the niece did sound like a 14 year old boy, but hey maybe it was meant too.

A voice filled with sweetness and it made it fun listening to.

  5. Lily definitely needed to catch a break from the aunt and the abductor. Glad her rake rescued her. I think I've listened to Alison Larkin narrate a Jane Austen story and remembered that I preferred another narrator for those novels,but she was alright.

    1. I can understand that. I do not know if this is her regular voice but it was like sweet as candy and perfect! for a book like this was also sweet. But for something else...eh, too sweet perhaps

  6. That whole "not talking" business and the butting of heads because of a misunderstanding or a refusal to communicate drives me nuts, so I'm glad this book was free of that type of drama!
