Life as a convict in an Australian penal colony was brutal, but James Hunter had the advantages of raw physical strength and courage on his side. He survived, and now he is back; a selfmade man of means, determined to take the bride he was promised.
Lady Thea Willers knows nothing of the bargain her father made to save her brother, nor does she have any interest in marriage. It might be a radical idea, but what Thea wants is a career.

The revelation that her brother’s liberty depends on her marrying James Hunter is devastating. But nothing, it seems, has the power to shake Thea’s world upside down like James himself, or the way he makes her feel.

My Review:
The highlight of this book was definitely the characters.  They had their own time of personalities, although they also appeared flat at times.  Being a novella I think a whole book as a whole would have made the characters pop.  Everything about this story was rushed.  I didn't feel like I had time to really get into the story at all and everything just flew on by.  There was no build up to the romance it kind of just happened.  I was left feeling like I had a lot of questions with no answers

Note: I received this book via Netgalley.
