Married to a StrangerThe third and final book centering around a Shipwreck in the Miniseries Danger Desire a trilogy billed as Shipwreck Scandal and Society WeddingsIn Married to a Stranger a marriage of convenience becomes something but neither party is brave enough to speak upTen years after the twins left for India only one twin the wrong one comes back Cal is finally a man with 27 years of age and he has a prosperous career before him all that is missing is a wife Sophia seems perfect she is mature and was the fiancée of his twin Dan who he was not able to save in the shipwreck Cal believes if he married Sophia then he would also fulfill his promise to care for her if something happened to his twin Sophia is with her 26 years of age a spinster her family has huge debts and Cal's propose seems like a fine solution to the whole mess But can they both overcome their misplaced guilty feelings and what happens when Sophia falls in love with Cal because he is just too caring to resist? The sexual tension between those two does not make everything any easier but was great to readBesides the plot around Cal's and Sophia's marriage the book deals with three very interesting topics the uniue bond between twins independence of women and trustAnyway there ist this rumour that twins share a special bond where they are able to experience thoughts and feelings from each other Cal lost his twin Dan in the shipwreck and feels now empty inside He thinks he will never be able to love again because he will not risk getting hurt once Sophia is desperate in showing Cal that love is worth everything I admired her strong attitude but also her understanding of the situationFurther Sophia was dealing with her own problems Independence of women was not easily reached and also not during Georgian times Sophia is described as an talented artist Finally she wants to take the next step and find out how her art would be accepted by the publicAnd with that there is the last issue about trust Sophia does not trust Cal enough to tell him about her art she is afraid he will forbid it But you need this trust that your love will understand and accept you no matter what your dreams areWell I like some books by Louise Allen and this was one of them There was no murder or kidnapping or intrigue It was just about two people who learned to trust each other and to care for each other and in the process to fall in love with each otherThe Story was sweet and fascinating and I enjoyed it very much A SHOCK PROPOSALSophia Langley's life is in turmoil When she learns of her estranged fianc 's death in a shipwreck the last thing she expects is for his twin brother Callum Chatterton to make a shock proposalHer inner romantic objects to a marriage of convenience and brooding Cal makes it very clear that's all it can be Yet to save her family Sophia accepts with trepidation and a highly inconvenient trembling of desire for her reluctant husband Miniseries Danger DesireAllen delivers a lovely sweet story demonstrating how strangers can build a relationship based on lost love The gentle yet powerful emotions of a grieving brother are sure to touch readers as will the budding romance between him and a shy but emotionally strong woman RT Book review 4 stars Where was Callum? There was no sign of him not so much as a note Had he changed his mind and decided that after yesterday when she had slapped him insulted him stolen his horses and abandoned him in the middle of the woods that she was impossible duty or no duty?No No He didn't change his mind Even thought there was no 'duty' anyway Even though men are under no obligation to propose to their brothers fiance Even though any intelligent man in existence who would have changed his mind Even though any man or woman would be extremely pissed if they were slapped for no good reason Aaaand I had enough of this stupiditySkimmed the rest nothing exceptional guy won't love cause he's afraid to be hurt girl falls in love but is afraid to tell him he also falls in love but is afraid to tell her you've read it 100 times But this version has nothing to add to a typical theme such as humour a mystery drama or something Heartless was the only book that made an impression on me with this themeCallum the handsome rich 27 year old polite childhood friend from a good nice family who proposed slapped him after he asked if he could kiss her and then kissed her when she said YES The slap and insults etc were cause he's a great kisser Yes if a man kisses great a reasonable woman will slap him insult him steal his horses and carriage and leave him stranded in the middle of nowhere with no money That'll show you for kissing well you bastard Really wanted to enjoy this after reading One night with a rake was sadly disappointed I hate to be brutally honest though wish there had been to sink my teeth into It sadly seemed to lack a plot and lacked chemistry between the main characters To me it seemed she fell in love with him only a days into their marriage but how and why? What made her fall for him in such a short time considering he was closed off reserved and practically a stranger? Unfortunately I found it boring repetitive very repetitive and nonsensical in some parts? A bigger plot or twist where Daniel returns and tries to steal her back from Cal etc Or maybe when she sees Daniel again her feelings start to return for him? Could have been built on this foundation after all it seemed Daniel was the only one whom didn't survive? Though had completed reading the book unfortunately from me it only earmed two stars Will continue to read of Allen's novels 😊 I started out not liking this one then it grew on me and I really liked the couple Until the very very end when everything got really stupid really fast and I didn't like it again The big conflict felt rushed and stuffed in there just because the author felt like it needed conflict and the heroine's reaction to said conflict felt wildly ooc A good couple with good chemistry foiled by uninspired writing I can't believe I actually read this book The plot was horrifically boring I felt no chemistry between the characters It seemed forced in writing the whole way through A story of girl who is betrothed to a twin and he dies so the brother marries her out obligation or love? It could have been better Way better The setup was decently done But after that it was neither angsty nor particularly funny Too modern and frigging adversarial for me plus woman in lust and uneasy about it and dude just seems to be doing a job never added up to anything interesting or enjoyable for me so I ditched it Not my usual read but I enjoyed this I liked the uiet pace and gentle humor This is actually the first book in this genre I have read so I cannot review the historical accuracy of the language or items used etc but I can say I did enjoy this It is uite a gentle uiet book maybe that is simply the style of this historical romance genre I don't know having not read this genre before But overal this was an easy likable read I liked the character's and there was some nice soft humor and also some nice if lacking in detail bedroom scenes It's hasn't made me want to rush to read another historical romance but it was a nice easy read
