Romance Historical

To extricate himself from financial difficulties, John Beauclerc, the Earl of Finchley, concocts a scheme to marry a stranger who's answered his advertisement.

He'll show his grandmother! That lady’s withholding money until he can demonstrate more maturity and less scandalous behavior. At six and twenty, the last thing he wants is to settle down. He goes to the church at St. George's Hanover Square to wed Miss Margaret Ponsby of Windsor, send her on her way with £100, and continue to pursue wine, women and faro with his fun-seeking friends.

After the ceremony, he realizes he's married the wrong woman. Miss Margaret Ponsby of Windsor obviously thought the wedding was to occur at St. George's Chapel in Windsor. Lady Margaret Ponsby was at St. George's in London. How can he extricate himself from this wretched marriage—a marriage over which his grandmother is ecstatic? If only Lady Margaret Ponsby weren't so shy.

When the lanky young (though most disreputable) earl she's worshipped from afar for as long as she could remember asks her to move to the church's altar with him, she's powerless to decline. Even after a wedding ceremony begins, she still remains mute. She must be standing in for Lord Finchley's true bride. But once she realizes she really is married to Lord Finchley, she determines to do everything in her power to make this a dream marriage. Even if it means imitating her clever, talkative sister.

Re: Countess by Coincidence

I enjoy quite a bit of tropes... some of my favs are fairytale types, secret baby, mistaken identity, etc...
(Colleen Conklin 12:52pm July 8, 2015)

I enjoy books about princesses, heiresses, brides, everyday
people, nurses, mysteries especially the cozy ones with
recipes.

mistaken identity - characters who re-connect - loving from afar and then the hero realizing the heroine who loved him from afar is REALLY the right person for him!
(

I like topes where the hero goes after the heroine right from
the start..she can protest but he knows she's his. Also, a
little comedy, or mystery, or spooks.
I enjoy your books, but I haven't read this one yet.
(

I enjoy tropes - mistaken identity or marriage of convenience. Thanks.

Cheryl, I love your books!

Wow! What a situation! I'll bet there are a lot of exciting events in A Marriage of Convenience.
(
Anna Speed 12:04pm July 11, 2015)

Of the many I like, friends to lovers are my favorite.
(
Nancy Luebke 3:34pm July 11, 2015)

I love mysteries!
(
Denise Austin 4:31pm July 11, 2015)

I like a variety. Marriage of convience and books with kids (they can be so
funny) are among my favorites.
(
Laura Gullickson 11:45pm July 11, 2015)

Thank you, Mary Hay and Sharon Shearouse.
(
Cheryl Bolen 10:42pm July 20, 2015)

I love romantic suspense and historicals
(
