Reader Review: The Reasons for Marriage was surprisingly clean - which was great. The love scenes are not graphic at all compared to others. The story line follows the Duke who is looking for a bride in a cold, and practical manner and decides on a woman who has decided that marriage was never meant for her. As a self-proclaimed spinster, she's never left her country home and experienced London. When they marry, she finds herself completely suited as a Duke's wife, and he is pleasantly surprised to realize that there are more than just practical reasons for getting married. The story line is a bit dull, there isn't a major conflict and it just goes through the rigors, or lack of, of boring ton life.
The Dashing Duke...
Lenore Lester was perfectly content with her quiet country life, caring for her father, and having no desire for marriage. She took steps to remain inconspicuous and tried her best to show indifference--but to no avail! The irresistible Duke of Eversleigh had found her out and was quite persistent in his affections....
The Shy Miss!
Notoriously charming Jason, Duke of Eversleigh, could easily see behind Miss Lenore's brilliant disguise. Though the awkward lady hid behind glasses and pulled-back hair, she couldn't cover her beauty. And Jason was ever determined to loosen the hold she had on her heart.

The Reasons for Marriage
Chapter OneThe door of the Duke of Eversleigh's library clicked shut. From his chair behind the huge mahogany desk, Jason Montgomery, fifth Duke of Eversleigh, eyed the oak panels with marked disfavour.
"Impossible!" he muttered, the word heavy with contemptuous disdain laced with an odd reluctance. As the sound of his cousin Hector's retreating footsteps dwindled, Jason's gaze left the door, travelling across the laden bookcases to the large canvas mounted on a nearby wall.
Expression bleak, he studied the features of the young man depicted there, the impudent, devil-may-care smile and mischievous grey eyes topped by wind-tousled dark brown hair. Broad shoulders were clad in the scarlet of regimentals, a lance stood to one side, all evidence of the subject's occupation. A muscle twitched at the corner of Jason's mouth. He quelled it, his austere, chiselled features hardening into a mask of chilly reserve.
