Here is the book blurb for The Reluctant Marquess - 9781908483096

Charity Barlow wished to marry for love. The rakish Lord Robert wishes
only to tuck her away in the country once an heir is produced.

A country-bred girl, Charity Barlow suddenly finds herself married to a
marquess, an aloof stranger determined to keep his thoughts and feelings
to himself. She and Lord Robert have been forced by circumstances to
marry, and she feels sure she is not the woman he would have selected
given a choice.

The Marquess of St. Malin makes it plain to her that their marriage is
merely for the procreation of an heir, and once that is achieved, he
intends to continue living the life he enjoyed before he met her.

While he takes up his life in London once more, Charity is left to
wander the echoing corridors of St. Malin House, when she isn’t thrown
into the midst of the mocking Haute Ton.

Charity is not at all sure she likes her new social equals, as they
live by their own rules, which seem rather shocking. She’s not at all
sure she likes her new husband either, except for his striking
appearance and the dark desire in his eyes when he looks at her, which
sends her pulses racing.

Lord Robert is a rake and does not deserve her love, but neither does
she wish to live alone.

Might he be suffering from a sad past? Seeking to uncover it, Charity
attempts to heal the wound to his heart, only to make things worse
between them.

Will he ever love her?
