From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "I Thee Wed" comes a Wicked Worthington novel of a love that will not be denied... As a ship's captain, high-born bastard Morgan Pryce has spent his life sailing away from England. The last thing he needs is a wife. But when he fears that his titled half brother Neville is about to be snared by a gold-digger, Morgan aims to protect Neville by trapping the lovely crook into marriage first. He knows he can't allow himself to believe a word she says. If only she wasn't so convincing . Determined beauty Bliss Worthington is not terribly fond of finding another man waiting for her at the altar after all, no one tricks a Worthington and gets away with it. Somehow she must persuade her dangerously handsome new husband to grant her an annulment because her heart is set on his brother. Soon the newlyweds must deal with a secret but mutual attraction. Morgan finds himself oddly devastated by her tenderness and braveness. When Neville shows up to rescue her from a loveless marriage, she will have to quickly decide which man is the right one for her...."

Cocktails and Books received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect our opinion of the book or the content of our review.

To be honest, I worried about this book as I got started with it, but I was so glad I stuck with it. Wedded Bliss is part of the Worthington series, but I didn’t have any trouble enjoying it by itself once I got past the slightly slow start.

The cast of characters is entertaining and the premise behind the story unique. Bliss and Morgan are both easy to like and root for as they sort out the truth behind their unusual marriage. Light intrigue in the form of a nefarious uncle and an amazing secondary cast round out this well-written story.

I enjoyed the author’s portrayal of the female cast. She allowed them to be strong characters who were smart and creative while maintaining their femininity and living within the bounds of their society. Add in a few surprises along the way and I was left with a story that made me want to read more by this author.

I'm a stay home parent and squeeze reading in wherever I can around driving kids around to school and activities. I read a little bit of everything, but really enjoy indie authors and Happy- Ever-Afters. I've been reviewing for Cocktails and Books since January 2015.
