Wedded Bliss by Barbara Metzger

Well, I have been trying to get through some books, but I felt I needed to talk about a book. I figure I could tell you about a book I read a couple years, which was Wedded Bliss by Barbara Metzger. The first time I read this book, I thought it was alright. However, since I didn't have many books, I decided to re-read it again. On the second go around I really liked.  Here's a glance of what the book is about:

Robert Rothmore, the Earl of Rockford, comes home to find his boys are missing and have been staying at Mrs. Alissa Henning. As you can tell Rockford doesn't take the news lightly and marches over there. Upset he takes one of her boys who is also named William, thinking the child is his. She comes running out with a pistol. Yeah that would leave an impression.

Rockford comes up with an idea: his boys need a mother and Mrs. Henning needs a protector, why not kill two birds with one stone. So, they married. Alissa moves into his home and he goes back to London to woo the Austrian princess. Trouble starts to brew and she needs to go to Rockford for help and the game changer; she wants to have a baby girl.

This isn't conducive to his lifestyle and basically orders them out. While in London, things happen to make Rockford feel like a total CAD. You feel so bad for Alissa when she decides it was a mistake to come to London and heads back to house to start packing to go back to the country estate. Rockford decides to change, is it enough to get Alissa to stay?

After writing this, I really want to read this book again. However, I can't, other books await. Maybe one day I will be able to re-read this book. I hope that you get a chance to check it out. Happy reading.
