Publisher's Summary

A rugged and ruined naval officer comes to claim his bride in an unforgettable tale of love, revenge, and redemption from the nationally bestselling author of Marry in Scandal.   

Lady Rose Rutherford - rebel, heiress, and exasperated target of the town's hungry bachelors - has a plan to gain the freedom she so desperately desires: She will enter into a marriage of convenience with the biggest prize on the London marriage mart.  

There's just one problem: the fierce-looking man who crashes her wedding to the Duke of Everingham - Thomas Beresford, the young naval officer she fell in love with and secretly married when she was still a schoolgirl. Thought to have died four years ago he's returned, a cold, hard stranger with one driving purpose - revenge.   

Embittered by betrayal and hungry for vengeance, Thomas will stop at nothing to reclaim his rightful place, even if that means using Rose - and her fortune - to do it. But Rose never did follow the rules, and as she takes matters into her own unpredictable hands, Thomas finds himself in an unexpected and infuriating predicament: He's falling in love with his wife....  

Contains mature themes.

Marvelous Narrator

Marry in Secret continues this excellent series by Anne Gracie. The stories manage to be quite fresh versions of conventional tropes, with original characters and engaging writing.

Very enjoyable story!

I really enjoyed this latest addition to the Marriage of Convenience series. It may be my favorite of all. I enjoyed the story, the characters were well developed and kept me involved all the way through. The combination of Anne Gracie and Alison Larkin is magical! I wish Ms. Gracie’s older books would be recorded by Ms. Larkin! Are you listening Audible?

Not as goo as the first two

I liked the first in the series a lot. I also liked the second. This third in the series was really not as good. The mystery part was a bit better but Rose was incredibly irritating during the first third of the book. It may have partly been the voice the narrator used for her. Very breathy and little girl. I also wasn’t that interested in the first hour or so of Rose going back and forth re her response. Her decisiveness later didn’t mesh with the person she was displayed as in the beginning. Generally the story really did hold my interest so I’m not sure why I’m not being more positive. I’m excited to read about George in the next one. I will have listened to the whole quartet over a week so I guess that is a good recommendation in itself. I also used credits for the last one and will for the next one. Maybe that’s why I was a bit more on the fence about the third.

Unique storyline

I enjoyed this book the most so far in the series. The author’s humor came out more in this one. Plus the storyline wasn’t as typical. In addition, I very much appreciated that there were no hours-long misunderstandings that so many in this genre have as a writing ploy. The refreshing development of their relationship kept the plot interesting and moving forward.

Least favorite of series

After really enjoying the first two books, I found this one irritating. The story was different enough to keep it interesting but I took a dislike to Lady Rose and the narrators lispy little girl voice for the character. Would have preferred to read this one, but not sure that would have redeemed Lady Rose.

A lovely Gracie romance, with twists.

A great story, with a dramatic start and gradual revealing of sub plots with lesser characters, lifting it beyond the ordinary love story. A delightful entertainment with twists and turns all turning out happily in the end. I have to admit the reader irritated me, as her tone of petty, pretty for the heroine was too girly for a character with cheek, and grit!
