I was delighted to get an early reading of Marry in Haste so I could interview Anne about the book. Marriages of convenience are such a popular trope in historical romance that they have their own abbreviation: MOC. And in Marry in Haste, Anne Gracie launches a new Marriage of Convenience series. The book released from Berkley on May 2, and it's received rave reviews.
From Romantic Times: "Gracie utilizes the ever-popular “marriage of convenience” theme to her advantage in the first of a new series. It isn’t just the premise, but the marvelous cast of characters, that will keep readers entranced…. A totally delightful read!"
And here's a rare starred review from Library Journal:
"With deep character insight, subtle humor matched with rapier wit, and brilliant repartee, Gracie puts a refreshing spin on a classic romance trope and delivers another knockout Regency that will keep fans enthralled."
Plus, All About Romance has given Marry in Haste their coveted Desert Island Keeper (DIK) rating, calling it "a gorgeously romantic read."
