Publisher's Summary

Although this book is part of a trilogy, each book is a stand-alone story in its own right.
Charlotte Webster thought she was eloping with the love of her life. She did not expect it to be a ploy and a way to force her way to a marriage with a stranger, who wanted an innocent bride. Held in a house of ill repute, there is little time to act to try and escape and few options to consider.
Lord Halkyn is a peer much in demand, but an expert at avoiding marriage. He has always had fixed ideas on love-it causes too many problems to be worth the trouble. He did consider marriage to one lady once, but it would have been a business transaction. Unfortunately for him, the lady in question had wanted to marry for love and had refused him. Rather than ridicule her, his opinion of her increased and he began to wonder if there was something in the nonsense that was love after all.
When visiting his favorite house of ill repute, run by a Baron, he is accosted by a woman. He is begged for help in escaping from the house. Whether it was the real fear in her voice, or whether it was the devil in him, he helped her. Suddenly his life was to become far more complicated.
Protecting an innocent, employing the services of Bow Street and racing across country, all situations that he could never have anticipated when he was first sought out by Miss Charlotte Webster.
His life was never going to be the same again.

Nice idea, but with inconsistencies

I got this audio book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

As romances go, the book is OK, but there were some things which weren't convincing, such as one of the protagonists thinking they were too old to marry a woman seven years younger than them.
At the time, the difference in age was commonly even bigger than just seven years.
And then all the physical reactions -- really? We're not talking about a teenager here.
I have to admit, that all the explicit sexual talk doesn't really fit the era in which the story is set.
As is usual with Elizabeth Klett, the narration was excellent, so it was an enjoyable listen after all.

Regency Love

Where does An Inconvenient Wife rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was pretty good, not the worst, far from it but not the best. I like a little bit more intimate scenes in my romance books.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Stephen was my favorite, mainly because I love "watching" him fight falling in love. Also that he had a sense of honor.


Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Klett – was your favorite?

Stephen was my favorite. I loved the narration, the fact that it was not too British, brought the character to my mind like watching a movie.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, I loved the scenes during Charlotte's capture, her being thrown out of the coach, and Stephen frantically searching for her, her rescue by neighbors, and her short term memory loss..
