ABOUT THE BOOK
While attempting to start a new life for herself, an unexpected turn of events once again has Annabelle married--this time to Harrison Graymoor, the most eligible, yet elusive, bachelor in Philadelphia. Harrison assures her that he will secure an annulment immediately, unaware that the constable has sent word of the marriage to the press in Philadelphia. And here things continue to go awry.
Harrison's past, a philanthropic cousin with his eye on Annabelle, and the appearance of Annabelle's ex-husband threaten the tentative relationship growing between Harrison and his "wife." For two individuals set against marriage, there are certainly a lot of second thoughts regarding the one forced upon them.

Hidden Affections doesn't start off like your typical romance novel. The book opened in a surprising way that I just loved. Annabelle and Harrison are thrown together in a marriage that neither of them wants but that neither of them can come up with a way to get out of. From the first page I thought this was going to be a great romance with likeable characters that I would love and I was right.
