Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Julianne MacLean comes a passionate and emotional tale of a most unexpected love…
Married by Midnight: A Pembroke Palace Novella
For seven years, Lord Garrett Sinclair - the ruggedly handsome illegitimate son of the Duke of Pembroke - has been traveling abroad with no intention of ever returning home to Pembroke Palace… until his father commands that he must marry by Christmas in order to thwart a family curse or lose his inheritance forever. Haunted by a tragic accident that has hardened his soul, Garrett entrusts his brothers to seek out a bride who will agree to a marriage in name only. Her reward? A sizable share of his inheritance - payable immediately after the wedding night.
Lady Anne Douglas has been ruined by scandal and disowned by her father. Facing a life of poverty and spinsterhood, she leaps at the generous terms of the marriage contract to ensure her independence. But the charade of a two-week engagement proves more of a challenge than either anticipated when they cannot resist the intoxicating lure of the marriage bed. Anne knows they will part ways after the wedding. Will she dare risk her heart for two weeks of pleasure in the arms of an irresistible rogue? Or will her surrender become her undoing after a most unexpected turn of events mere hours before the wedding?

Effortless Read

"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.
