A quick note:
This book features Charles Duff, who is the brother of Heather. I first introduced Charles in Kidnapping the Viscount. Kidnapping the Viscount was Heather’s romance.
I introduced Miss Eris Tumilson in The Reclusive Earl. Her role is small, so there’s not much of her in it.
Some people enjoy it when I mention when a character appeared in another book, so I thought I’d mention these here. 😀
A Perilous Marriage is the first book of a brand new series.
I currently have 3 books planned for this, but depending on how things go in Book 2, the series might expand to 4 books.
What A Perilous Marriage is About
Eris, a wallflower and spinster, finally gets her chance to marry someone. On her wedding night, it turns out her new husband dies, but no one (including her) finds out about it until the next day. So poor Eris is left widowed and without even the possibility of having children all in one night.
Charles, known for jumping to conclusions in Kidnapping the Viscount, has once again jumped to conclusions. He is convinced that Eris murdered her husband. Her husband, by the way, happens to have been his best friend. Since he can’t convince the law that his friend was murdered, he sets out to prove it himself.
This is a story where the hero doesn’t trust the heroine right away, but he needs to play the role of the doting suitor. So he’s going to pretend to be in love with her. This is a romance, so there will be a happy ending.
If this setup sounds like the kind of book you’d like to read, here is where you can find it:
