The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck by Kathleen Y'Barbo

The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck
#3 Women of the West Series 

Kathleen Y'Barbo

Unlikely romance is sometimes just an inconvenient marriage away…
Charlotte Beck may be entering adulthood, but she can’t seem to keep to her stubborn, independent spirit from bucking social protocol. Fed up with her behavior, Charlotte’s father Daniel pressures her to settle into a nice marriage despite knowing she is set on going to college.
Then Daniel sees Charlotte with the handsome but annoying English astronomer Alex Hambly, and everything changes.
Though Alex and Charlotte can barely stand one another, Daniel offers them a deal they can’t refuse: if they agree to marry, he will save Alex’s family from financial ruin and grant Charlotte the freedom to go to college. Reluctantly the couple agrees, but in private they plot to annul the marriage as soon as possible.
But when Alex’s feelings change and he refuses to dissolve their contract, will Charlotte find a way out of her vows? Or will she discover that maybe this marriage isn’t so inconvenient after all?

My review:
Way to funny!!  The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck (book #3 in the Women of the West Series) by Kathleen Y'Barbo is fantastic and I read it in one day. It is filled with romance and a whole lot of fun. Charlotte is a character that will keep you smiling and Alex is the perfect hero. If I could have lived in this time period, I would want to be Charlotte Beck. She is a very independent young women for her time. I can't wait to read the first two books in this series. This one easily stands on its own, I just can't get enough of Kathleen Y'Barbo books. She is on my all time favorite author list.  I love historical romance with a bit of fun and lots of giggles thrown in and this book has all that and more.

The other two book in the series are, The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper, book #1 and Anna Finch and the Hired Gun, book #2.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review.

The first two books in the series.
