Wed at Leisure by Sabrina Darby Review


In all of Sussex—scratch that—in all of England, there is no one prettier than Kate Mansfield, and Peter Colburn, heir to the Duke of Orland, has known that since the age of 15. But since her vivacious nature comes with a temper to match, Peter has always masked his hunger for her behind ruthless teasing.

As far as Kate is concerned, there is no one as annoying or as incredibly handsome as Peter. So when he surprises her with a sudden and romantic courtship, Kate is sure this must be his idea of a sick joke. After all, he's the one man who knows how flawed she really is. And the only man to whom she has ever been so attracted. It's only after she rejects him that she realizes he might actually have been serious. And she just might be regretting her hasty decision.

As Kate's determination wars with her traitorous heart, it may be too late. Now she's putting everything, including her reputation, on the line to give this accidental tragedy a happy ending.


When I started this book I honestly didn't think I would like it. I was expecting the brat Kate from the first book to be even worse in the second, but wow! I can't believe how wrong I was.
This book actually reduced me to tears! My heart went out to Kate and all the pain she went though as child had turned her in to a person with a very think wall, to shield herself to outsiders as well as her own family.
But one person saw though it. Peter has horrible childhood to! Treated much differently than his brother Reggie. But has managed to overcome much of it, a lot better than Kate.
I really did LOVE this book and I wish it had been longer. I love the characters Kate and Peter so much and I think that's because they are flawed which makes them more life-like to me.
This book just flowed and I fell head first into the story, I felt every emotion that Peter and Kate were living, including me yelling at my kindle at Reggie, which earned me a few strange looks from the family.
So it earns a 9 out of 10 from me, so keep your tissues handy and you heart open because this book will remind you to never judge a book or person by its cover!
