Read full description of the books:
Lady Sarah promises her dying sister to look after her son and not to reveal that he is her (the sister's) illegitimate child because of the scandal it would bring to the family. So Lady Sarah pretends that the child is from some distant relative, but everyone figures it's hers, bringing scandal to the family anyway. I never did see the point of that promise... Sarah breaks off her engagement to the man she loves because of this, but she can't tell him the real reason for it. 4 years later Justin returns from the wars, with one leg cut off below the knee and a very bad prosthesis, thinking that Sarah has an illegitimate child that was conceived very soon after he left and of course "hates" Sarah for this. But Sarah is rich and he is broke and really needs money to restore his estate, which was ruined by his useless father and brother. Sarah offers to marry him and provide the funds to help him restore his estate. After some rather silly hemming and hawing on his part, they end up getting married, but decide that they won't have sex, so Justin will never find out the truth about Sarah that way either.
Up to this point I was enjoying the story quite a lot, even with the nonsensical requirement for Sarah to keep quiet about the child's true parentage. But not having sex just made no sense. They love each other (even if they can't admit it), they're married, and even in marriages of convenience the couples sleep together, so there is absolutely no reason for the celibacy. From this point on the angst, which is the biggest element of this story, just seemed contrived and needlessly stretched out. Everything ends happily after some major drama in which Justin has to fight a bad guy (and finally has sex with Sarah) and Sarah's insane father almost ruins things.
If you like lots of angst and extremely contrived situations to generate that angst, then you'll like this book. I usually love a good angsty story, but this one didn't work for me.
