Private Arrangements

I have a review posted over at Book Binge about Midsummer Moon by Laura Kinsale.

Private ArrangementsPrivate Arrangements by Sherry Thomas
Love has designs of its own.… To all of London society, Lord and Lady Tremaine had the ideal arrangement: a marriage based on civility, courteousness, and freedom—by all accounts, a perfect marriage. The reason? For the last ten years, husband and wife have resided on separate continents. But once upon a time, things were quite different for the Tremaines…. When Gigi Rowland first laid eyes on Camden Saybrook, the attraction was immediate and overwhelming. But what began in a spark of passion ended in betrayal the morning after their wedding—and now Gigi wants to be free to marry again. When Camden returns from America with an outrageous demand in exchange for her freedom, Gigi’s decision will have consequences she never imagined, as secrets are exposed, desire is rekindled—and one of London’s most admired couples must either fall in love all over again…or let each other go forever.

When I first heard this one I was wary of it. I thought that it was going to be same song different author of Sylvia Day's The Stranger I Married. I liked that story but I was not in the mood for the same story by a different author. I was told that it was different so I decided to try it. I was delightfully surprised. I really enjoyed it a lot and was glad that it was a different storyline as well. It was interesting to watch their interactions and how their thoughts and feelings developed as they were around each other more. Their history was a lot to get over, and I was glad that they had both grown up and gotten over their past mistakes. I would recommend this one to anyone looking for a good historical read.

I'm so glad you liked it :) I really enjoyed it, though I admit the story wasn't for everyone. But it worked for me.

I have this in my TBR pile. For some reason I am hesitant to pick it up. I think it is all the misunderstandings that I am leary of. I am glad you liked it.

I have this in my TBR pile too. honestly, I didn't really want it, but got it because of the buzz. I don't know when I'm going to read it though, but I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it.
