The Earl of Hawkeswell’s life has been not been very good as of late. He was to be married and gain a sizable amount of money, which would help with his money woes. But his bride has disappeared on their wedding day. She is not officially declared dead, so he is in a state of limbo with not many choices.
Verity is the missing bride; she faked her death in order to flee a marriage she feels she was tricked into. She cares nothing for the Earl’s status; she has no desire to be controlled by a marriage. She wants to continue to be independent.
When she is discovered alive and the plans she made were not going to happen, Verity braces herself for a loveless marriage. But she soon discovers that the Earl invades her mind and body like no other. Can they make a relationship out of this marriage or is it destined to be a loveless, dull life?
Provocative in Pearls is a wonderful read; a tale of romance with two people who seem so different yet find common ground on which to start a life together after a very bad beginning. This is a great trip back in time and to another place that will feel like a vacation for your mind.
