Can a lady tempt a Free Fellow to surrender his heart? 

As a founding member of the Free Fellows League—a group of four gentlemen who signed a pledge to never wed when they were lads—Griffin, Viscount Abernathy, swears that he will put off marrying as long as possible. But when he is suddenly called off to war, he has no choice but to obey his father’s wishes and find a wife…

Just days later, he marries the lovely Lady Alyssa. For a man committed only to his freedom, she seems a perfect—and perfectly undemanding—bride. Intelligent and self-sufficient, Alyssa craves her independence just as much as Griffin loves his. But as the irresistible attraction between them flourishes with every look and touch, they discover there is something they desire even more than a loveless marriage of convenience—the passion they find in each other’s arms…  

Book 1 of the “Free Fellows League” Series, which includes BARELY A BRIDE, MERELY THE GROOM, HARDLY A HUSBAND, TRULY A WIFE, A BACHELOR STILL and CLEARLY A COUPLE (a novella from TALK OF THE TON)

    Enjoyed the new twist regarding the league. It seems boys of that time didn’t have meaningful examples of adult manhood. Lots of surprises when we go back in time. Thanks.

    I truly enjoyed your book. It was delicious to sample and indulge myself. My only regret was reading it too quickly and reaching the end before I wanted. Thank you for a pleasurable few hours. Blessings, Elizabeth Wilson
  • It was a good book.

    By ClaudiaS1234
    I was surprised this was a good read. I have to admit that my standards were low because the cover looks a bit cheesy, but it was a well written, and emotional book. The only thing I didn’t like was the secret league that Griffin belonged to and the pact he mad as a child. I think it was childish, specially when he returned, to keep to that code.

    Interesting book. I usually don’t like historical novels but this was well written and a good read. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
  • Romance novel obsessed

    By Keezey_
    Judy Garwood is my favorite romance novelist, had you slapped her name on the cover I wouldn’t have noticed the difference. Thanks for the amazing read!
