Book review The Earl's Mistaken Bride by Abby Gaines

Book Description:
As soon as Marcus Brookstone lifts his bride's veil, he sees he's been tricked. He made a bargain with God-to marry a good, Christian girl if his mother recovered from illness. But Marcus intended to marry pretty Amanda, not stubborn Constance. His next plan, to ignore his new wife, fails as well when Constance makes it clear that she wants a true union.
Constance Somerton doesn't dare reveal that she's been enamored of Marcus for years. The man believes love is for weaklings. Someone needs to teach him about marriage's blessings. Someone who sees beyond his arrogance to the tender heart beneath. Someone exactly like Constance..

My Review:
I won this book during a blog tour last year. I am not a big fan of Regency and part of the reason is the attitudes of the upper class but I know this is the reason many like the books. In this book we see Marcus the Earl who marries Constance a parson's daughter. Marcus is typical of the aristocracy very much concerned with appearances and how others see him where as Constance is plain and has firm opinions. Marcus at times annoyed me with his shallow thinking but I know also this is part of the times. I like Constance and though she is the plainest of the sisters she has a beautiful mind and heart. I love her determination in this book. This is a good book and it will be interesting seeing the rest of the books in this series. If you like Regencies I am sure you will love this book.
