Publisher's Summary

It was the ideal marriage of convenience...until they met.

Cassandra DeWitt has seen her husband only once - on their wedding day two years earlier - and this arrangement suits her perfectly. She has no interest in the rude, badly behaved man she married only to secure her inheritance. She certainly has no interest in his ban on her going to London. Why, he’ll never even know she is there.

Until he shows up in London too, and Cassandra finds herself sharing a house with the most infuriating man in England.

Joshua DeWitt has his life exactly how he wants it. He has no need of a wife disrupting everything, especially a wife intent on reforming his behavior. He certainly has no need of a wife who is intolerably amiable, insufferably reasonable...and irresistibly kissable.

As the unlikely couple team up to battle a malicious lawsuit and launch Cassandra’s wayward sister, passion flares between them. Soon the day must come for them to part...but what if one of them wants their marriage to become real?

Hilarious, heartrending, and hot, this standalone Regency romance tells the story of a marriage of convenience between opposites.

Loved this book. Don’t miss the fun!

This book is funny, sad at times, and very good. There are numerous sexual scenes but are between a man and wife. This book is not erotica by my standards and I really do not like erotica, cheating, and excessive foul language. I loved the characters of the book and assumed it was a series. I’m sad now because I was all ready for to buy the next book and there isn’t one. I must go pout now. Don’t miss this one!
Kate Reading is a great narrator.

A fun and wicked story

Casandra had been jilted by her fiancé. Two weeks before their wedding, he eloped with another young lady. Casandra was heartbroken. Her father was worried about his estate going to someone else if he died unless Casandra was married, so he arranged a marriage for her with Joshua. Joshua had been the heir to an earldom until it was revealed that his father was not legally married to Joshua's mother. Joshua was stripped of his title and thrown out by his hateful father. Joshua worked very hard and became rich beyond imagination. He married young and they had a child, but both wife and child died Joshua grieved. He agreed to marry Casandra but said the marriage was in name only. Cassandra and Joshua saw each other only once - their wedding day and night. Two years later they meet again. Their interaction is hilarious. The dialog is quick and witty. These two characters are so lovable. They fight their way to what I hoped would be a HEA.

The writer is very good. She told an interesting, funny and sexy story. Great job! Kate Reading's narration is perfect. She makes the story sparkle and come to life. An amazing treat.

Loved it!

I would hope Audible will publish more stories by Mia Vincy...as long as they are narrated by the great Kate Reading. This was a terrific story with good characters. I highly recommend.

What a lovely book!

I loved the characters and couldn’t stop listening. I’m hoping for sequels about the younger sisters. Kate Reading was wonderful, as always. I listen to a lot of historical romances, rolling my eyes about half the time. So nice to discover an intelligent and well written romance.

What we want is not always what we need

He is a tortured soul, she is as warm as she can trust herself to be. Romance stories have many similar basics and this book has them all; history of pain or loss, parental influence, societal pressure, sexual desire/tension.
With that said, this story is well narrated and written with the consideration of the attitudes of the time. Still, plenty of passion, love and a happy ending - mixed in with the trials to get there.

A must read for romance readers- rare find

The banter between the two main characters was so much fun. Best compliment I can give is that I will miss these characters, so rare to find despite all the books I go through.
The story was plausible, another facet I need from a book. The evolution of the relationship and the changes they wrought in each other came naturally too, and was beautifully done. So sad when it was over.

What a fun read with great narration..


This was such a great love story, and so very funny. Joshua was hysterical through the whole book and Cassandra hated him and was beginning to love him at the same time.

Even though I thought it was a little long I didn’t skim anything, except the sex scenes. There were too many of those, but the rest of the book made it worth having to skim all the sex.

There was a lot of sadness in this book but worse than the sadness was Cassandra’s 19-year-old alcoholic sister. Jeez, you couldn’t help but hate her, and she never got any better. Lucy was a good hateable character.

So, lots of sexual tension and sex but no swearing.

As to the narration: Kate Reading did an excellent job on the voices and the emotions when she reads.

TOTALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK

I had never read this author before so I was hesitant... I will look for her books from now on. I loved the characters, the relationship between them and everything in between.

The narrator was excellent (something I have a hard time finding lately) and did a fabulous job on the story!

Well done! Please do more series like this... I'm desperate for good books with good narrators. lol
