Vanessa disliked Viscount Lyngate from the moment she laid eyes on him. Yes, he was very good-looking, but he acted so superior; as if they were beneath him somehow. When she found out he intended to ask for her older sister’s hand in marriage she had to step in; so she proposed marriage to him.
Elliott, Viscount Lyngate, was not thrilled with the responsibilities he had inherited from his father. Especially since he has to go to a small village to find the new earl. He just wants to get it done and be on his way, but the Earl's sisters have managed to delay things. They are all a handful, but Vanessa is the one who gets under his skin.
Agreeing to marry, Vanessa and Elliott embark on a journey of self-discovery. In order to move forward, the past must be dealt with and old insecurities must be laid to rest. As they become more familiar with each other, can theirs ever become more than just a marriage of convenience?
First Comes Marriage is an exciting romance you will not want to miss out on. It is fresh and animated; thus keeping the reader well entertained with the Cinderella-type story with not one Cinderella, but a whole family. This is book one in a new series and I am sure the rest will be as entertaining as the first.
