I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
Mirabella can hardly remember the man she married as a girl. And it’s just as well. She feels nothing but contempt for the man who wed her for her fortune and promptly forgot she existed. The ton may call him “The Saint” but Bella knows better.
Forced to marry as a teen to rescue his family from certain ruin, Sebastian has been apart from his child bride since their wedding day. When he encounters an enchanting impish beauty at the opera, he’s is thrilled to find she is none other than his long-ago bride and he is more than ready to make her his wife in truth.
Too bad the beguiling beauty has no intention of coming meekly to the marriage bed.

Okay, it's stupid to say, but I almost didn't read this book because the female lead has the same nickname as my daughter. I'm really glad that I did though, because this book is really great.
It took me no time at all to get into it and I fell into the story line really easily. Even though most of the things are really easy to figure out, this book is really well written and I would have no problems recommending it to someone that is open to historical romance. Normally I'm not much into historical novels, but it's ones like these that are the exception. I would definitely read this story again and it has made me aware of a great author.
I would love to read more of Quincy's work in the future.
