I received a complimentary audiobook copy of this book from the publisher.
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…
Catherine Marks has been with the Hathaway household for two years. She very much enjoys her time with the Hathaway sisters, but absolutely dislikes their brother Leo Hathaway. He is rude, arrogant and rubs Cat the wrong way.
Leo knows that there is something that Catherine Marks is hiding and he is hell bent on figuring it out. If he purposely needles Miss Marks to get a rise out of her – so what? After one of of their tussles ends in a passionate kiss, Leo and Cat can’t stop thinking about one another. Added to the growing attraction between Leo and Catherine, Leo must also marry and produce an heir within a year in order to keep the estate his family resides in. What will Leo find that Cat is trying to hide and will it abruptly stop their attraction towards one another?
So many friends recommended that I read the Hathaway series and I finally had an opportunity to listen to the audiobook of Married by Morning. I LOVED Leo and Cat so much. Lisa Kleypas is queen at writing witty banter and the dialogue between Leo and Cat often left me laughing out loud. These two had so much sexual tension and I love that the book started off with a bang and their attraction only grew from there!
The audiobook of Married by Morning was narrated by Rosalyn Landor and I feel she did a wonderful job narrating Leo and Cat! I was often amused listening to Cat and Leo bickering and then swooning over how much they cared for one another. This was a wonderful audiobook and I found myself making my walk longer, finding extra chores to do around the house so I could continue listening to Married by Morning.
Although Married by Morning is part of a series, I read it out of order and it completely stands alone. I can’t wait to go back and read the rest of this series!!
