Elijah Banks can't stand to see his childhood friend, Lady Amelia Brice, marry a man that she doesn't love. Not when he's in love with her and can offer her marriage to save her reputation. Lady Amelia Brice doesn't love the man she's supposed to marry. Her heart belongs to the friend she's loved since they were children. But what can a girl do when she must marry to avoid a scandal? Especially when the groom-to-be appears to have left her at the alter. To avoid an even bigger scandal, she agrees to marry Elijah. There's just one problem to their future happily ever after - she's hiding a secret. So is he, and his is bigger. Can these two find their way to happily ever after?
This is the third book in the Banks Brothers Series, and while I've not yet read the first two, I did enjoy this one. It helped that I have read all of the books in the Scandalous Sisters Series and the Groom Series where some of these characters are first introduced. Yes it is a secular romance book. Yes it does have all of the elements of a secular romance book. The story itself is well developed. The author writes her characters to have quirks and still be loveable. I plan on reading the first two books in this series soon. I also look forward to reading the fourth book, His Brother's Bride, which will be about Elijah's twin Henry, once it comes out.
I received the Smashwords-Kindle version of the book for free from the author for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
I recommend reading the books in the Scandalous Sisters Series and the Groom Series before picking up this book as it will help in understanding of the characters.
Recommended to fans of Historical romance, secular romance, Historical fiction, Harlequin Historicals.
For my readers who only read Christian fiction, this is not a book for you. This book contains things that are not found in Christian fiction and I don't want you to be shocked or offended by it.
