In no hurry to love again, Mr Ashworth is prepared to fight his feelings every inch of the way―ruthlessly ignoring the fact that his heart and head had been bewitched by Lady Emma Munsford almost from the first moment he laid eyes on her. Throwing himself into the modernisation of his neglected estate does nothing to distract him from the alarming and desperate desire to claim Lady Emma for his wife. Lady Emma Munsford, her reputation in tatters after an engagement turns sour, is in no hurry to give herself in marriage to any man, least of all her uncle’s ill mannered neighbour―a fact which Mr Ashworth knows all too well.

The Honourable Gentleman Reviews
Fairly goodMy favorite novels are good marriage of convenience stories. This one was pretty good except it was all fighting until the last chapter. After the kidnapping, the lies, the last minute rescue, they finally end up declaring they love each other in the very last chapter. I would have rated it a solid four stars except for that.
The first half of the story deserves five stars. The quarrels between Marcus and Emma are capital, captivating, amusing. The author is a master describing their mutual lack of trust, frustrated expectations and misunderstandings. We perceive that they are both trying to hide some secrets of their past.Then comes the second half of the story that deserves two stars, because the tale keeps a slow pace, the quarrels seem to last forever and secrets are much more unlikely than expected. There is a bit of chaos in the plot. As often happens, the finale is full of blackmailers, revenges and kidnappings.3,5 stars in the end.
NOT LIKE THE FIRST 2 BOOKS IN THE SERIESFirst, it took me awhile to realize that this was really one of the books in this series. When I did I became impatient and a little disappointed because it seemed as though Marcus and Emma would be arguing with each other. I didn't expect that they would ever get it together. Emma didn't seem to have the proper instructions for a young woman. Just wasn't what I expected. Would I buy it knowing this? Yes,but only because it's in the series.
Several discrepancies, but enjoyableThe author apparently chose to forget or ignore all of the encounters the main characters had had in previous books, and started fresh with them. This was disappointing as I'd gotten the book specifically because of those encounters, and wanted to see how things turned out for the two. But, overall, it was still an interesting story.
This was disappointing after Norma's other two novels (which I loved). There was too much conflict between the main characters, and I find it highly unlikely any love could blossom or forgiveness made so quickly after all the hurtful things said and done between the two.
I liked it, but the conflict between the two lasted a little too long and was a little too much.
Very good I enjoyed this book The plots are very interesting . Hope everyone enjoys it a wonderful book to read.
