"Married By Midnight" is an effortless read, lacking in emotional stimulation.
Lord Garrett, the illegitimate youngest son a Duke, returns home after 7 years to fulfill the requirements of the Dukes latest will; that all his sons must marry before Christmas or lose their inheritance. The old Duke, developing mental disease, believes a curse will destroy the castle unless all his sons are married before midnight on Christmas eve.
Lord Garrett has no wish to marry, so his two older brothers find him a wife that will be a wife in name only. After their marriage, they will each go their separate ways. Afraid of being married off to some old lecher, ruined Lady Anne, disowned by her family, with no money and no prospects welcomes the opportunity to live independently on the money she will receive for marrying Lord Garrett, although they have never met.
"Married By Midnight" does not live up to what I expect from Julianne MacLean.

Of course Rosalyn Landor is one of my favorite narrators and I enjoy Julianne MacLean's books very much. This one was lovely. Both characters were nice people and fell in love at first sight. There wasn't a lot of tension or any "will they or won't they". It was pretty much a forgone conclusion that there would be a happy ending. And, that is okay with me.
