A good angsty little story with interesting characters and excellent writing The story falls into three parts The first uarter is a little slow as it sets up the stage for later On her 15th birthday Belinda falls in love with a stranger she meets on a path who kisses her before he leaves to join the cavalry When they finally meet again 5 years later at her selfish cousin's house Not only does he not remember her but he is infatuated with her MARRIED despicable cousin Dierdre By this point I'm getting a little tired of Belinda always getting she shit end of the stick She's a compassionate kind woman who never comes first or even second with even her own father Now she's in love with a turd who would try to run off with a married woman DamnSOooo after a couple uncomfortable weeks of watching them flirt and hoping nobody else notices Deirdre's sister in law arrives She is a ruthless woman who misses nothingNext thing you know Belinda is marrying the Captain Anthony The wedding doesn't go well and their wedding night is full of vitriol He leaves again for war and she leaves to stay with her old governess in northern England Now I was getting a little pissed because there's absolutely no hinting at softer feelings on the Captain's part No hint that he's realized what an ass he is and how he's overlooking the true gem for the cheap paste that is her cousinIn the last third of the book Anthony returns 5 months later a man wounded in spirit He has had time to think about his behavior and after talking to his friend JackJohn and Belinda's father he is fully cognizant of what an idiot he made of himself over Dierdre and how she played him But that he was also at faultI loved that Belinda had written him off on the wedding night She never replied to his letters which kinda sucked anyways Even when he does show up out of the blue her heart doesn't go pitter patter But he wants to make their marriage work and together they travel to his great uncle's who is unwell They make peace and even become friends Cause Belinda doesn't hold grudges I got a little impatient with this part I wanted to savour it but it was telling then showing unlike the earlier parts of the book So it wasn't really satisfying He also never showed any inclination that he desired her like ever And she is fine with that at first I wanted him to prove that he cared and desired her than Dierdre Especially as Belinda and her cousin look so much alike Eventually they do get busy but it seemed so out of the blue He told her he burned for her and was waiting for her to make the decision but where was the evidence This is a guy she saw flirting with her cousin day after day for weeks She caught them in an embrace kissing He couldn't keep his hands off Dierdre So pardon me for not being convinced by his change in affectionsAt the end we get the return of Dierdre which I loved I hate when OWs just fade into night never to get their just desserts I do wish Anthony had been vehement in his pushing her away though Maybe had some disgust on his face or somethingI felt really bad for Dierdre's husband So there was lots to love about the writing and the characters but I wasn't blown away by their love when all was said and done They felt like friends than loversSafety is not great of course but better than I hoped view spoilerAlthough Anthony had been pursuing Deirdre for months since before her marriage she spun lies he never did than kiss her passionately He leads Belinda to believe it had been when he was being cruel But anyways Belinda is a virgin and he is the only asshole man that she's kissed Dierdre is mad at the end but unrepentant There is some sexy times near the end Not terribly explicit but not PG either hide spoiler

A Temporary BetrothalCousin – Lady Deirdre Archer – summons her to Archer Hall while her husband is away Belinda reluctantly agrees to act as her companion In the whirl of society activity Belinda crosses paths with the handsome Captain Anthony Wainright newly returned from the Peninsular war To her dismay she discovers that he is nursing an illicit passion for D. I always love to read some nice angst when dealing with a marriage of convenience perhaps because some characters truly shine through the trial by fire and Hey we get to read some nice humble pie being eaten The story center focus was mainly on Belinda Melville whose life hasn't been a bed of roses but neither did she have an uncaring family When she's sent to spread her wings a little she goes to spend some time with her selfish married cousin There she meets a man whose been in her dreams since he stole a kiss from her and brought light to a dreadful day Sadly Capitan Anthony Wainright does remember that day with only eyes for Belinda's married cousin puts Belinda down when she makes it know she doesn't approve of the relationship he and her cousin are carrying on When both put a wrong foot forward it's up to Belinda to save both their hides and enter into a marriage with a man who doesn't love her who she doesn't trust but her heart just still clings to a dream Belinda really shows what a strong character she is when she takes a unwanted burden when the Capitan and her Cousin are caught Her cousin along with some of the other characters were pretty much two dimensional when I was dreading that Tony would end up the same stupid man he surprised me with his insight and his humbleness I've read a few books where the hero doesn't prove his love or that he's even changed by the last page Tony see what an asshat he was and truly showed remorse in his actions toward Belinda and those he hurt mostly Belinda's cousin's husband He proves he changed and how he came to really and truly love Belinda I loved the play emotions and the great changes the characters go through and with the author's great style of writing this was a truly wonderful traditional
