A dying viscount, a bookish botanist, and a marriage of convenience that becomes. . . inconvenient. . .
Diagnosed with consumption, Viscount “Devil” Dare knows his days are numbered. With his greedy cousin scheming to throw Dare’s mother and sisters out of their home after his death, he can hardly refuse a mysterious lady’s solution—wedding vows. Her lands would ensure his industrial success—and secure the future for those he loves.
Bookish botanist Emilia McDowell desperately needs the land she will inherit once she marries. Her gift for the healing arts requires growing and experimenting with herbs if she’s to save lives. When she learns that her funds would benefit handsome Lord Dare, who is said to be dying, she offers a marriage of convenience.
But if Emilia touches Dare, her dangerous healing gift could kill her. As they learn to love under trying circumstances, Emilia longs to find the courage to be a true wife—until she discovers Dare’s plans for her inheritance. Can love and marriage surmount death and betrayal?
This is book five of the Unexpected Magic series.
I have read all of the books in this series so far and this one is as good or maybe better than the rest. “Chemistry of Magic” is not as comical as most of the others but is still a very well written and enjoyable read.
The only thing lacking in this one was the virtual absence of wildly mischievous children and dogs. They are there but only in the background this time.
Dare is very ill and thought to be dying so he decides that Emelia’s idea of a marriage of convenience will work just fine to keep his scheming cousin, who is his heir at bay.
Emilia has spent her life in fear of touching others due to her gift of healing which causes her pain and brought her near to death when she saved her young cousin.
Will these two find their happily ever after together or will Dare leave Emilia alone once more with his death?
I gave this book 4.75 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the author to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I have voluntarily reviewed.
