Sensuality: Red Heart
Harry has to wed a virgin, and soon, or his father’s fortune will go to his back-stabbing stepmother instead of him. The matchmaker he hires sets him up with Martine, a young woman with more secrets than he could have ever imagined, which is okay at first because the whole thing starts out as strictly a business deal, but it quickly becomes quite a bit more personal as Harry and Martine get to know each other. Harry was sweet throughout this whole thing, a guy it is near impossible to dislike, but I felt a bit bad for him given all Martine’s secrets. I wished she could have trusted him a bit earlier on and let him help her. The unraveling of Martine’s past was almost like the solving of a mystery, and it was enjoyable in and of itself. Entertaining modern-day mail-order bride type of story. Great series!
