Review: His Wicked Wish (Cinderella Sisterhood #5) by Olivia Drake
MARRIAGE TO A NOBLEMAN? NOT IN HER WILDEST DREAMS. . .
The daughter of a disgraced woman and a common actor, Madelyn Swann has been shunned by the nobility. No proper lady would traipse about on a Covent Garden stage, let alone sell herself at auction to the highest bidder. So why in heaven’s name would Nathan Atwood, Viscount Rowley, make a generous offer for her hand?
Turns out Maddy is exactly the type of woman Nathan wants as his wife. Finally, he can embarrass his snobbish and cruel father, the Earl of Gilmore—and scandalize London society—with his beautiful, unsuitable bride. Then he’ll depart England forever and leave his wife behind. Having secret plans of her own, Maddy is happy to play the role … only to find that enjoying her husband’s seduction requires no acting whatsoever. But as she falls madly in love with Nathan, can she persuade him to stay with her for always?
Light and Sweet.
This is the fifth book in the Cinderella Sisterhood but it can be read as a standalone. I never read anything by Olivia Drake before.
My biggest problem with this story is that I just didn’t buy it when they professed their love. The hero was charming at the beginning but as we get to know him, he was bitter and treated the heroine with disdain, while she doesn’t do a thing to him.
Marriage of convenience is one of my week spots, I’m a fan, but I had mixed feelings about His Wicked wish. Light, sweet and easy reading historical romance.
