Middle Ages romance - Orphaned Julia of Childress has become an exceptional cook for the nuns, but
Griffin de Grandaise pays the nuns well if she will come & cook for him for 1 year. She has other plans.
Orphaned at a young age, Julia of Childress has become the angel of the kitchen at the Convent of the Brides of Virtue. All Julia wants is a kitchen of her own-and a husband for whom to cook. Griffin de Grandaise will do anything to make Julia his personal chef-even keep her virtue intact for one year.
Griffin de Grandaise will do anything to make Julia of Childress his personal chef--even keep his vow to return her to the Convent of the Brides of Virtue in one year...with her virtue intact. But nothing prepares him for Julia's sumptuous meals--or for the maddening way she drives him wild with desire. To make matters worse, it's obvious Julia is determined to get him to propose a more lasting arrangement--and it will take every ounce of Griffin's willpower to resist the feisty beauty.
Betina Krahn is one of the best. And 'The Marriage Test' is absolutely one of my top favorites not just of Krahn but of all the books I have read. She is great with dialogue and plot and I love her humor that gives each of her books that extra reading pleasure.
