Summary from Amazon: She thought he was her knight in shining armor, but will a marriage of convenience prove her wrong?
After Vivian’s fiancé dies in the Great War, she thinks her life is over. But Henry, her fiancé’s best friend, comes to the rescue offering a marriage of convenience. He claims he promised his friend he would take care of her. She grows to love him, but she knows it will never work because he never shows any love for her.
Henry adores Vivian and has pledged to take care of her, but he won’t risk their friendship by letting her know. She’s still in love with the man who died in the Great War. He won’t risk heartache by revealing his true emotions.
I really enjoyed this story by Tamera Lynn Kraft. I haven’t read very many books set in and around World War I, but several have come across my path this year, and I’ve really been enjoying them. I also usually like stories about marriages of convenience because I enjoy the storyline of love growing within the already-existing relationship. This novella delivered on both counts! It also pleasantly surprised me with some twists and turns I did not see coming and more realism than I expected from a romance. I loved that the characters were flawed and how the author managed to pack a lot of character growth into less than 100 pages! There was really nothing I didn’t like about this book, to be honest. I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author and am so thankful to have received this complimentary ARC to get a taste of her work!
