Description
Tarrisbroke Hall by Jasmine Cresswell
Marianne was a most unwilling birde...

And the Earl of Tarrisbroke wa an equally unwilling husband.

But neither of them had any choice.

Marianne Johnson, rich young widow of a merchant, could not destroy her family's one chance to be so close to the nobility. And the earl, faced with impending financial ruin, saw marriage to a plebeian fortune as his only hope.

Not for a moment did anyone expect this unlikely pair to care for each other.

Especially when, at first meeting, Marianne appeared as a vulgar, overdressed female, and the earl as an unremitting snob!
