The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck **Book Review**

The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck  by Kathleen Y'Barbo takes place between London and Colorado in the years 1887 - 1891. I am one that is in LOVE with Historic Romance Novels, so when I saw this book to review I was super excited; and thankfully not disappointed at all!

Charlotte Beck is a menace! What she wants she manipulates and makes a creative plan until she gets its. The last thing Charlotte is looking for is love! She wants to prove that she is a grown up, not so she can find a husband, but so she can run her fathers business. In the 1800's this is not a normal all! 

She is at her "unofficial Debut" and falls into the arms of Martin Hambly or was it Alexander Hambly? From that point on every time she runs into Viscount Hambly there is nothing but trouble that happens, usually Charlotte's fault but she would not state otherwise of course. 

After numerous annoying run ins with one Mister Hambly, Charlotte and him make a truce to never see each other again.After one, no, two great kisses they may keep their distance but, neither is forgetting about those kisses! 

Hambly's family is in need of money and Charlotte wants to go to University to study Mathematics, what to do, what to do? Mr. Beck has an idea. Daniel Beck will give Viscount Hambly the money he needs in exchange, that in 4 years when his daughter is done with school they marry. Both reluctantly agree. Charlotte, thinks her father will forget the deal in 4 years and in those 4 years it is never again mentioned. 

Things are just not that easy though, are they? Read this great story to see what menacing things Charlotte does to try and get out of the marriage and what happens next!

I received this book in exchange for my review, however everything is my opinion and mine alone! I can not wait to read more from Kathleen Y'Barbo, she is an excellent writer and I really enjoyed this book!
