This different (Australian?) cover for Anne Gracie’s Bride by Mistake popped up when I set up the Kindle app on my new computer, and I thought it was really interesting. Yes, the woman is wearing poorly-fitting evening clothes in the middle of the day, but I like the Georgian house as the backdrop (it helps that I am a huge fan of Georgian architecture!).
I read this book several years ago, and reviewed it HERE.
Here is the original cover:
And here is what it’s about:
Eight years ago, Lieutenant Luke Ripton made a hasty wartime marriage to protect a young girl from a forced union and then left her protected in a remote mountain convent. Now, Luke is Lord Ripton, but he has been unable to obtain an annulment, which leaves him no choice but to collect a wife he never wanted.
For nearly a decade, Isabella has waited like a princess locked in a tower, dreaming of her handsome, dark-eyed prince. Her dreams are shattered when Luke reveals himself, not a prince, but an autocratic soldier, expecting her unquestioning obedience, which is something Isabella’s fiercely independent nature will not tolerate.
But while Luke and Isabella’s fiery personalities clash at every turn, they remain bound to their vows, never expecting that the passionate fury they share could become passion of a different kind . . .
