Visit Ki Pha @ Doing Some Reading and check out her pick for the week as well.
This week, I’m featuring Stephanie Laurens.
The Reasons for Marriage, published in January 2004
A dashing duke persuades a reserved young woman to be his wife, in THE REASONS FOR MARRIAGE, by New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens. Captivating historical romance from one of today’s top-selling authors!
Lenore Lester is perfectly content with her quiet country life, caring for her father, and has no desire for marriage. She takes steps to remain inconspicuous and indifferent, but the Duke of Eversleigh has found her out. And this particular duke is quite content to convince Lenore of THE REASONS FOR MARRIAGE.
That book summary gives nothing away. Nothing, that is, but questions. I haven’t read this book but I want to ask all these questions when I read that blurb. Why does Lenore desire to be inconspicuous? What motivates her? And how does the Duke of Eversleigh see her exactly?
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts about it? I’d love to hear from you guys.
