About this ebook

One of the 20 Most Romantic Books Ever, According to BookBub Members

Inspired by real events, a secretly arranged marriage establishes a dynasty.

After years in exile, Julian returns to claim a bride he doesn’t know. To his delight, he discovers she is everything he’d hoped for. Unaware they are already married, Deb is content with her independent life. Julian’s challenge is to have her accept him on his merit, even though she has no choice at all. The future of the Roxton dukedom depends upon it.

Set in the opulent world of the Georgian aristocracy, Lucinda Brant delivers another lavish 18th century experience in her trademark style—heart-wrenching drama with a happily ever after.

Character-driven romantic adventure

Non-explicit, mild sensuality

Story length 100,000 words (not including bonus material)


Lucinda Brant’s sweeping family sagas are a perfect reminder of why I fell in love with historical romance —Cheryl Bolen, New York Times bestselling author


You will once again be reminded why Lucinda Brant’s books are such a treasure. —SWurman, Night Owl Reviews 5 STAR TOP PICK

The energy starts on page one and never lets up. Twists and turns, dramatic revelations, and some enjoyable chaos make this a book that keeps the reader turning pages. Highly recommended! — Fiona Ingram, Readers’ Favorite 5 STAR MEDAL WINNER

Lucinda Brant fully immerses the reader in the world of Georgian England, keeping you turning pages, or listening late into the night as the case may be. For those historical romance fans who have been gobsmacked by Nicholas Boulton (as a narrator), I am thrilled to report that Alex Wyndham is every bit as good. His narrative voice is deep and lovely. I unreservedly recommend that you listen to Midnight Marriage.—Lady Wesley, Romantic Historical Reviews audiobook review

This book is missing a lot of details and has too many point of views. It would be ok with the point of views if the characters were given a brief introduction to let the reader know who is speaking. The introduction to this book was not described well enough to know what was happening. This book can transition into a novel if it was more descriptive.

Good read. Rushed in the 1st 3rd of the story, but gets much better. Great characters. Comical even. Love that Lucian character. Overall a keeper. One to reread again and again.
