The stunning follow-up to Darby's Woo'd in Haste
In all of Sussex—scratch that—in all of England, there is no one prettier than Kate Mansfield, and Peter Colburn, heir to the Duke of Orland, has known that since the age of 15. But since her vivacious nature comes with a temper to match, Peter has always masked his hunger for her behind ruthless teasing.
As far as Kate is concerned, there is no one as annoying or as incredibly handsome as Peter. So when he surprises her with a sudden and romantic courtship, Kate is sure this must be his idea of a sick joke. After all, he's the one man who knows how flawed she really is. And the only man to whom she has ever been so attracted. It's only after she rejects him that she realizes he might actually have been serious. And she just might be regretting her hasty decision.
As Kate's determination wars with her traitorous heart, it may be too late. Now she's putting everything, including her reputation, on the line to give this accidental tragedy a happy ending.
Wed at Leisure is the second book in the Taming series by Sabrina Darby and tells the story of Kate Mansfield, the mean sister in Woo’d in Haste.
This time, we will find the true reason why Kate was mean to her sister Bianca. We also see glimpses of Kate’s past with Peter Colburn, the Duke of Orland, their neighbor. Although this book is way better than Woo’d in Haste, it still did not reach the mark for me. There was nothing really special about this story and nothing that made me like Kate at all. So, her mother was mean to her. That still doesn’t make her actions right, in my opinion.
Going into this book was a little hard for me because of how my views of Kate were colored in the first book. I really hated her. It would have been better if Kate did something to redeem herself.
Kate and Peter’s romance was sizzling. I love the interactions between the two. The reunited trope is one of my favorites and this one did not disappoint.
All in all, this was a good read, perfect for summer.
