Rosie’s #Bookreview of #Romance From Courtesan To Convenient Wife by @MargueriteKaye

From Courtesan to Convenient Wife (Matches Made in Scandal, #2)From Courtesan to Convenient Wife by Marguerite Kaye

4 stars

From Courtesan To Convenient Wife is a regency style romance set in Paris. It is book #2 of the Matches Made In Scandal series.

The book opens in 1818; a woman known as The Procurer has been asked to find someone who would be willing to play the role of a wife for a short period of time. Lady Sophia Acton has had a fall from grace and is heading towards poverty when The Procurer calls with a fortunate job offer.

In Paris, French wine merchant Jean-Luc Bauduin needs an instant wife. A mysterious woman recently claimed that she had a legal contract of proposed marriage between herself and Jean-Luc; a document he knows nothing about. He hopes that Sophia’s presence will head off an unwanted situation.

The storyline has interesting links to the post-French Revolution era which involved the Reign Of Terror when large numbers of the French nobility were sent to the guillotine. I thought it was a thought-provoking glimpse into a part of history that I knew little about. The Romantic nature of France and its people shines through in this book, and it is a lovely addition to the series.

Every woman wants to marry him But what if he is already taken? In this Matches Made in Scandal story, Jean-Luc Bauduin, Parisian society’s most eligible bachelor, is determined to take only a wife of his choosing. But until that day comes, he’ll ward off his admirers by hiring Lady Sophia Acton to wear his ring! The passion Jean-Luc shares with his convenient bride is enormously satisfying–until he discovers Sophia’s utterly scandalous past!
