An Inconvenient Beauty by Kristi Ann Hunter
Griffith, Duke of Riverton, likes order, logic, and control, and he naturally applies this rational approach to his search for a bride. He’s certain Miss Frederica St. Claire is the perfect wife for him, but while Frederica is strangely elusive, he can’t seem to stop running into her stunningly beautiful cousin, Miss Isabella Breckenridge.
Isabella should be enjoying her society debut, but with her family in difficult circumstances, her uncle will only help them if she’ll use her beauty to assist him in his political aims. Already uncomfortable with this agreement, the more she comes to know Griffith, the more she wishes to be free of her unfortunate obligation.
Will Griffith and Isabella be able to set aside their pride and face their fears in time to find their own happily-ever-after?
My Thoughts: This is book number four from the Hawthorne House series and I’m so glad it was sent to me by the publisher to review. As you might already know I love historical romance novels but this one was especially good. I love that it has a bit of the Pride and Prejudice feel with a strong female lead and royalty. Of course it isn’t all good, there are huge barriers to over come and the story is exciting. This is a great escape read and makes me want to read more of Kristi Ann Hunter’s books.
