    2. This is the first book I have read by Karyn Gerrard and I truly enjoyed it! Entertaining from beginning to end, we find two people, both who have dealt with life's unfairness. Our heroine, Lady Sabrina Lakeside has been through a lot. She was forcibly made to marry, by her father, to an aged man who treated her terribly. Now a widow with no funds, she is forced to move back with her hateful father who is marrying her off again to the highest bidder. Desperate to get away, she comes up with a sch [...]



    3. I actually got a ARC copy of this book through a KINDLE giveaway for it on GoodReads, and the following is my honest opinion.On one side you’ve got Riordan Wollstonecraft, the youngest grandson of the Earl of Wollstonecraft Hall, who, along with the rest of the young men of his family live with a curse hanging over their head. The curse with them loving in love, for if they do, the women they love will succumb to an early, premature death. As with all curses there is a way out, and this one is [...]


    4. Riordan Wollstonecraft has been taught that love is a curse. All the men in his family have loved and lost the women in their lives so Riordan determines that when he is old enough he will not face the same consequences as his ancestors. Riordan is intent on making changes in the world. He believes even the poor deserve an education so he takes up a teaching position under an assumed identity. Sabrina is a widow who just want to live a quiet life. Unfortunately, she is at the mercy of her cold f [...]

The family has always been ready to help the underdog, especially underprivileged children, and the rights of women once they are married.

    7. I received Marriage with a Proper Stranger as part of a giveaway.Riordan Wollstonecraft, scion of the wealthy and progressive Wollstonecraft family, has an expansive, liberal view of the world, aside from one unchanging belief: he must not fall in love. Due to a centuries-old family curse, the women that Wollstonecraft men form attachments to succumb to an early grave. The only way for the curse to be broken, it is said, is for all the men of the family to fall in love within a year. Turning hi [...]


    8. A heartbreaking tale of a heroine who was brutally abused physically, mentally and psychology first by her abominable excuse of a father then by her abhorrent, depraved husband. I struggled to read and comprehend what the heroine has gone through. I skimmed through few chapters.If not for The Wollstonecraft men of nobility, Gentlemen to their very bones, I would not have been able to finish reading. The Wollstonecrafts have liberal beliefs on women's and children's rights and use their power to [...]


    9. Marriage with a Proper Stranger ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️(Men of Wollstonecraft Hall #1) By Karyn GerrardTo be introduced to such a wonderful book that is part of new series by Ms Gerrard is an absolute delight. I have read quite a few of her books and she never disappoints.It has been legend that the all the women who marry into The Wollstonecraft family die a premature death either by child birth, sickness or accident. It is with such a family weight that the men of this household will no [...]


    10. This was a real treat of a book, Riordan Wollstonecraft believes that love is a curse, if he goes by all the women ithat the men in his family have lost. then it must be true. Love is off limits forever. For him giving back to his community is and will be his priority. Education is a means of survival,But when he meets the lovely widow Sabrina Lakeside he’s surprised to find that he’s willing to help in her plight. Sabrina’s father is ready to barter her off to a man twice her age, she’s [...]


    11. ‘Marriage with a proper stranger’ took a different slant on the typical romance novel with the main male character being quite noble and honourable. The name Wollstonecraft would resonate with many readers as Mary Wollstonecraft’s writings and beliefs were quite controversial at the time. Riordan Wollstonecraft obviously shares his ancestors’ strong beliefs and not only is he intent on providing education to everyone, he comes to the assistance of Lady Sabrina Lakeside. As a young widow, [...]


    12. I want to thank Karyn Gerrard, author and First Reads Giveaway for my eBook Kindle copy of Marriage with a Proper Stranger that I won in the Giveaway.Riordan Black Wollstonecraft comes from an old English family with a curse hanging over them and the pressure of family expectations. He is for reform of education for the common man and woman in England so he takes a position in a small school to try his new ideas on how to educate children.Lady Sabrina Lakeside wants desperately to escape her br [...]


    13. I really, really enjoyed reading this story but a few things didnt add up. Yes, being a historian and a vivid reader though English isnt my mother tongue, you start to notice things that do not fit together. Firs tof all it's the language - it's not formal enough for the days the story takes place. Unfortunately it's a huge issue for me. It's more 1950s like, some parts even up to today and that doesnt fit. Second - I have read tons of 19th Century novels and never ever did a man wear silk under [...]


    14. Arguably a four.ever I am giving 5. Why. Incredibly executed story line that was different in many ways, more than my expectations. I would of liked a little more of each character, but I was engrossed in the story from page one until the very end. I really want to read more on this family and will be keeping my eyes out for them now. This is a book to be savored and enjoyed not one you will want to race through. It has so many different and compelling situations that it will touch your imaginat [...]


    15. I like this story. Its a bit cheesy and parts are a kind of dis-believable but it was a pleasant read. While I did find some of the point it made a bit heavy handed and a bit repetitive, I understood the authors points. I also felt that some of the sentiments and language use as a bit modern for the setting and characters. Though the focus is on Riordan and Sabrina, the plot does include obvious set ups for two further stories and for two less obvious. Would I read the rest of the series, possib [...]


    16. Overall satisfying romance starring a very likeable heroine-Sabrina (rich girl with horrible father) and hero (handsome man with a family curse) and an interesting mix of characters. I would definitely like to read the next books in the series. Was this a genius story with original plot? No, not really. Parts of it I found very unbelievable and there was the overused plot line of hero marrying heroine in a marriage of convenience but still, I found the book sweet. Thank you for this win!!


    17. I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is book 1 in series and I am looking forward to more. This was a good introduction to the series. I enjoyed it a great deal. We have the men of Wollstonecraft who are cursed to have the women in their family die. The story was well done and I enjoyed the romance that grew. Looking forward to more!


    18. I really enjoyed this book and this author. What I love most about this book is the way it deals with past abuse and consent. The sex is hot hot hot.Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC



    19. I won this book in a giveaway and was really impressed with it. It captured my interest from the start and I found it hard to put down. It was one of the better books I have read in awhile. Thank you!


    20. That is my first book from Karyn, and I can tell you straight away that I was really impressed. I could not put the book down and finished reading it in one go!I loved that the family is distantly related to Marie Wollstonecraft, it gives it a little extra and makes it feel a little more real and let us not even talk about the family in general. I really loved every single one of them and you gotta give it to Riordan for being a really really nice guy! I do not want to say too much because, I do [...]


    21. This was a great story. Flawless writing. This was my first book from karyn Gerrard and I'll definitely come back for more.This ARC was provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review that is all my own.


    22. Who knew a temporary marriage of convenience could be sexy, dangerous and yet fun! When Lady Sabrina offers a marriage of convenience to the school master Riordan she wasn’t expecting to truly find a husband, all she wanted was an escape, she also has no clue what her father has done behind the scenes that comes back to haunt her.I really enjoyed both Sabrina and Riordan, their sparks flew off the pages as they both unravel each other’s hidden mysteries. You also get a peak at other great ch [...]
