Strust runs deep So she’s shocked when he proposes marriage to protect her and her people Can she accept The Marriage Rescue is Joanna Johnson’s gripping debu.
Cals Edward proposes a marriage in name only which can soon be annulled once both sides of the bargain have been metFrom the dramatic opening Commentaries and Cases on the Law of Business Organization, 2009-2010 Statutory Supplement you soon realise that this far from the traditional historical romance and Selina s attempts to evade those aiming to harm her shows just how judged the Roma were at this time The fact that Edward is willing to protect Selina and her people immediately shows him as a hero who does not necessarily abide by tradition and as we soon find out his past has left him largely troubled mistrusting of the idea of love and vulnerable about allowing himself to care for people for fear he will be left aloneDebut author Joanna Johnson has created two excellent characters in Edward and Selina who on paper at least are complete opposites but in reality are uite similar and their almost instant connection to each other and Edward s desire to protect Selina gives potential to their friendship and marriage even if there is an agreement that there will be no romance to the union The fact that Selina is uite feisty and rooted in her traditions makes her a likeable character and the realisation that Edward has no desire for her to change from who she is apart from a rather amusing scene about which cutlery to use when makes him loveable to the reader and in his own way proves just how much her cares for and respects his new wifeSimilarly the author has clearly researched the relationships between the gentry and the Roma and the scenes of the traditional way of life for Selina are atmospheric and well written Indeed the contrasts between Selina and Edward s worlds are made clear as Selina goes back to visit her grandmother after the wedding and for Selina it becomes harder for her to see just how the two worlds can ever exist togetherThe attraction between the two happens almost from their first meeting and as a reader it is a joy to follow the budding relationship as Selina discovers her attraction to Edward whilst he fights his fears of commitment and ultimately almost looses the love of his life as he struggles to reconcile his past hurt with his potential future happiness The vulnerability he shows in the well written scenes where both Edward and Selina reveal the scars of the past only make him all the loveable andou really do root for both Edward and Selina to overcome to obstacles in their path to happinessUltimately the arrival of Edward s villainous Uncle Charles provides prompt Edward needs to declare his hand but it would spoil the story to reveal exactly how Charles fits in to the history of Edward and Selina s childhoodsFilled with touching romance the Christmas present scene is excellent this is an excellent debut from Joanna Johnson with lots of emotion historical detail and a heroine uite unlike any other and I thoroughly enjoyed Edward and Selina s journey towards their happy endingCongratulations to Joanna Johnson on an excellent debut and I look forward to Stygiophilia your next bookThankou to Joanna Johnson for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review The Marriage Rescue is author Joanna Johnson s debut novel and I must say I m highly impressed I look forward to seeing what Ms Johnson has for us in the future She is definitely an auto buy for me from now on Edward Fulbrooke is the new Suire of Blackwell Hall since his father s death With his father s will forcing him to marry or turn over his inheritance to his Uncle Edward is running out of time and options Selina Agres is a Romani woman She has spent a lifetime hating the gentry for the way they treated her people and for the part they played in her mother s deathWow What a fabulous couple and storyline I absolutely adored Selina
