This is a typical Regency romance, that is a sexier than most. If you like your repartee witty and your shirts flounced this will hit the mark. The uniqueness of this book lies in the personalities and appearances of the hero and heroine. The hero is a brawny, burly and scarred man who sees himself as a beast. His beauty is a gorgeous damsel who is stronger than her looks would make her seem. While it is an arranged match, it is a match that both approve of, yet neither can believe the other could possibly be happy with them.
