The Captain’s convenient wife…
Battle-scarred Captain Robert Fawley was under no illusion that women still found him attractive. None would agree to marry him – except, perhaps, Miss Deborah Gillies, a woman so down on her luck that a convenient marriage might help improve her circumstances.
Plain and somewhat shy, Deborah accepted his pragmatic proposal – because she was already halfway to falling in love with him. As remote as Robert was, though, could she ever hope to reach his guarded heart?
Biografía del autor
Annie Burrows love of stories meant that when she was old enough to go to university, she chose English literature. She wasn’t sure what she wanted to do beyond that, but one day, she began to wonder if all those daydreams that kept her mind occupied whilst carrying out mundane chores, would provide similar pleasure to other women. She was right… and Annie hasn’t looked back since.

UPDATE. Have just found out that there is a kind of a "prequel" to this noves, that is, "The Earl's Untouched Bride." It provides lots of details of the hero's life that only confirm my point. Oh, and I would also give the prequel in question five stars (so surprised nobody else did). Both books are excellent, if you just go below the surface a little bit, and read between the lines...
Let me mention that I downloaded it free on my PC so I didn't lose anything but time reading it and all in all I was satisfied and it kept me interested enough to read it in one sitting. Stayed up till 1am to finish it.
No offense meant to any reviewers we are each entitled to our opinions so here goes:
I believe it was so well written that the characters brought out the emotions in we the readers regarding Robert's behavior. I know that I was close to tears at points in his ill horrendous treatment of Deborah. That shows great writing skills again IMHO.
If you sat on the fence and made no prior judgements such as I did you found that Deborah was a cleaver thinker and way mature for her age. She was able to discern Robert's lack of self esteem and bizare reasoning behind some of his cruel comments. Yes Deborah lacked self esteem and at times you wanted to slap her silly to do something but she was able to distract him from further verbal abuse by her tame reactions not actions.
I had to keep thinking about how damaged he was mentally as well as physically in order to not flat out hate him don't get me wrong....no one deserves to be abused in any way, shape or form. Maybe I was more open to his behavior because of having had a father that suffered PTSD and behaved similarly, I suppose I understood him. When those people that suffer PTSD are bad they are very bad but when they are good they are great it goes with the territory, again not an excuse merely an observation.
This is one of those books that you wanted to shake the characters and say talk to eachother and these silly misunderstandings will all smooth themselves out but then if that happened we wouldn't be reading this story would we now?
I felt that the other 3 star reviewer hit the nail on the head in their review. It ended a bit flat for me and an epilogue would have summed it all up nicely. An epiloge would have acted as a balance showing their happy future kids, white picket fence etc... and made us feel that it was almost worth all his bad behavior in the end.
I will also recommend it as the other review has especially if you enjoy this Annie Burrows other books. Happy Reading and Enjoy
This is the first book I read by AB and I thought, all in all, that it was pretty well-written. The author managed to switch between H and h views/feelings without impeding the plot and the sex scenes were sexy without the icky/funny metaphors. However, the ending left me unsatisfied. I felt, after reading so much on H and h problems, the ending should have had more fireworks. Plus, I'm a sucker for epilogues/last chapters that show all the characters some time later with their kids, a picnic, sunshine and happiness, and there was none of that here. This book won't go into my keeper shelf, but I would recommend this book to get lost in and read on a rainy day.
