Love is worth a little scandal.

Owen Hadley needs a wife. Preferably a wealthy one. Alas, there aren’t a great number of heiresses willing to marry a rogue of no particular fortune—luckily, if there is ever a gentleman capable of melting a lady’s chilly heart, it’s Owen. 

Milly has had enough of the marriage mart. If matrimony means giving up her freedom for a foppish husband, then society can take their idea of marital bliss and toss it. But when the ton’s most notorious rogue mistakenly makes his way into her bedchambers, Milly finds herself unexpectedly and unwillingly at the altar . . . 

Yet the more time she spends with her new husband, the more Milly starts to wonder if the marriage she never wanted may be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Now it’s up to Owen to convince Milly that what started as a mistake is anything but—and that every night with him will be more wonderfully scandalous than the last.

A GENTLEMAN NEVER SURRENDERS by Lauren Smith is a great Recency Romance. Book 2 in her “Sins and Scandals” series, but can be read as a stand a lone. I would suggest reading Book 1, but not necessary to enjoy this book.
Well written with engaging and a bit troublesome characters. The plot is interesting, compelling. A bit unpredictable, and very enjoyable. Can a marriage of convenience become a marriage of Love?
A story of love, redemption, and finding a HEA. I was hooked from the beginning. I enjoyed watching the H/H come to love each other after such a rocky start. Ms. Smith did a wonderful job telling this story. She brought the reader to a better understanding of the H/H in a way that was captivating and compelling. A must read for Recency Romance lovers. Another great read by tthe marvelous Lauren Smith!
I received a complimentary copy, however, all opinions are my own.
