He is everything she wants to avoid...
For two years, Catherine Marks has been a paid companion to the Hathaway sisters—a pleasant position, with one caveat. Her charges’ older brother, Leo Hathaway, is thoroughly exasperating. Cat can hardly believe that their constant arguing could mask a mutual attraction. But when one quarrel ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response—and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison.
She is not at all what she seems...
Leo must marry and produce an heir within a year to save his family home. Catherine’s respectable demeanor hides a secret that would utterly destroy her. But to Leo, Cat is intriguing and infernally tempting, even to a man resolved never to love again. The danger Cat tried to outrun is about to separate them forever—unless two wary lovers can find a way to banish the shadows and give in to their desires…
I'm a huge fan of the Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas. So, when I saw that Married by Morning was available for Kindle I bought it without a second thought.
Married by Morning is Leo and Catherine's story. They've been favorites of mine throughout the series, I love their bickering and there was a sense of attraction between them both that gave me a feeling that their story would be great.
And I wasn't disappointed. It was a great story even though I felt like the second half of the book was rushed. I enjoyed the way the author put them together and slowly they became "sort of" friends. They learned how to trust each other. Both Leo and "Marks" have their own demons to slay but they find a way to deal with them. The chemistry between them was sizzling, which was very nice. But my favorite part of this couple is their banter, the dialogue was amazing. It was nice to see all the Hathaway's together, with their unique family dynamics. The scene stealer of the book definitely goes to Dodger, the ferret.
