Two Weeks With a Stranger

Two Weeks with a Stranger by Debra Mullins
Avon Books
Historical Romance
ISBN: 978-0-06-079924-3
Reviewed by Talia Ricci

Earl Simon Devingham canít believe his luck.  Just married to Lucy, he finds himself enjoying his marriage bed immensely.  Though he married Lucy for pragmatic reasons, Simon is pleasantly surprised to find her just as captivated with consummating their marriage as he is.  He canít wait to teach her everything he knows.  That is, until his supervisor sends an urgent message and Simon must leave his newly wedded wife immediately without any explanation.

Lucy Heathpot, the new Countess of Devingham canít believe her luck.  While she is fully aware that Simon proposed for reasons other than love, Lucy knows that the wonderful wedding night she just experienced couldnít have been faked.  Waking up deliciously sore, Lucy goes in search of her new husband only to find that he has left her for London; without telling her why. 

Simon knows duty before pleasure but is having a difficult time with his latest assignment because he canít stop thinking about his wife.  When Lucy shows up on his doorstep intending to stay, he does his best to keep her at armís length.  When she suspects his infidelity, he is unable to explain just how wrong she is because to explain would mean surrendering his mission for the Crown and that is something Simon refuses to do.

Two Weeks with a Stranger was a delightful book to read.  Full of intrigue and sensual situations, I found both characters extremely stubborn but much suited to each other.  Then, I have to admit that Ms. Mullins stumped me with the antagonist in the book and I love when an author does that.  Two Weeks with a Stranger releases in February 2007 from Avon and would be a great addition to anyoneís library!
