First Comes Marriage (Huxtable Quintet, #1) by Mary Balogh
I've read other Mary Balogh books and found this to be one of her least engaging. The plot of the story called for an arranged, mostly romance free marriage. Supposedly, they fell in love with each other during the last 2 thirds of the book, but I found the romance scenes to be quite passionless, even the "honeymoon scene." Not recommended for someone who enjoys a real "love" story, as I didn't feel the love in this story. In the back cover description it says this is the first in a quartet of regency romances, hopefully the others are more engaging.
