Claiming His Wedding Night by Lee Wilkinson

Readable modern romance
3 stars

Perdita Boyd has one chance to save her father’s ailing business and there’s only one man that can help her do it. Unfortunately, that one man is Jared Dangerfield – the sexy, dangerous man who also happens to be her estranged husband.

Married in a secret ceremony, Jared and Perdita were young and in love. But when Jared seemingly betrayed Perdita on their wedding night, she left and managed to stay hidden for three years. But now Jared’s back and ready to take his revenge and ensure he gets the wedding night he’s due.

I liked the premise for this book as I always like a ‘second chance at love’ story. Being part of the Modern Mills & Boon line, I was expecting the strong, ruthless man and a woman perfect for him. However there were times that I thought that Perdita was a little too weak and almost pathetic compared to Jared. With his strong, domineering ways it would have been nice to see her match him rather than sometimes come across as bending to his will. It wasn’t all the time but it irked me a little!

Overall the plot is quite basic but easy to understand and perfectly believable for the most part. It’s not demanding and I enjoyed reading about Perdita and Jared and the evolving love story up to the inevitable conclusion. I would have liked the ending to be a little bit more fleshed out with perhaps an epilogue but it was satisfying nonetheless.

If you’re looking for an enjoyable, readable Modern romance story that takes you away for a couple of hours then I would recommend this book to you. It’s not earth shattering but I enjoyed it and it did the job. 3 stars.
