Lord Dragoner's Wife by Lynn Kerstan

Lord Dragoner's Wife by Lynn Kerstan.

Delilah has been waiting five years for her husband to appear. She wants to have a real marriage and would love to have children.  Unknown to Dragoner, Delilah picked him after carefully examining several eligible gentlemen.

Dragoner marries Delilah because his parents need money and Delilah's father wanted a title. He comes to his wedding drunk and disappears right after the wedding night.

Dragoner suddenly appears in England and Delilah is hoping for a chance to make their marriage a true one. Unfortunately, Dragoner has returned to seek a divorce. He thinks that Delilah will want the divorce as much as he does.

When Dragoner discovers that getting a divorce in England is not as easy as he assumes, he allows Delilah to persuade him to take some time to finalize a decision. Dragoner heads back to France and his life of a spy for Wellington.

Not knowing that Dragoner's reputation is made up to cover his life as a spy, Delilah follows him to France in hopes of learning that his reputation is not as bad as she has heard. As soon as she arrives, Dragoner tells Delilah to go back to England. Unfortunately for him, she doesn't listen.  Delilah is soon caught up in spying business and learns that all is not as it seems.

I enjoyed reading this book, but I have to say that it took me a little while to get into it.  I'd read a little here and a little there. It wasn't until about the second half of the book that it caught my attention enough to sit for a longer period of time to read it.

***I don't know who to blame for this, but the Kindle version has horrible spacing issues. That might have been why it took me so long to get through it. The spacing issues were very distracting when reading.

You can purchase at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Thanks go to NetGalley and BelleBooks for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
