“Intrigued yet? You should be. ”
~ Under the Covers

Excuse me a minute whilst I shed a few tears… Why you ask? Because Marriage of Inconvenience is the last book in the Knitting in the City series! What am I supposed to do without my regular dose of Tuesday knit nights? Of the ladies hilarious shenanigans and unwavering support of one another? Of drooling over their hot HEAs? It’s a big concern, but I suppose I can always reread.

I’ve long anticipated Marriage of Inconvenience, or rather I’ve long anticipated Kat and Dan’s story, they’ve quietly had the hots for one another for most of the series and I knew it was bound to explode onto the page sooner or later. Only it seemed Reid chose to tell their story later, much much later as the finale in the series. Was it worth the wait? Did Kat and Dan live up to expectations? Yes, it was worth the wait. No, because it turned out Dan and Kat circumnavigated my expectations by not quite being who I thought they would be, but in a good way.

What I like about Penny Reid’s books is that although they have the prerequisite modern fairy tale feel of most contemporary romances, she tends to add an issue that it’s a bit closer to reality and maybe a twist or two to get you thinking. In Marriage of Inconvenience Reid drags out two tired old story devices: marriage of convenience and billionaires and messes with them a little. Then throws in the issue of the illusive female orgasm in for good measure. Tumble those three concepts in a brew of unrequited love and that gets you Marriage of Inconvenience. Intrigued yet? You should be.

If you are after an intelligent and funny contemporary romance than you need to give this book a try. However, I suspect that if you have read this far in the series you don’t need any more encouragement from me. However, if this is the first you are hearing of the Knitting in the City series, you have to go and try them out. They are all brilliant and unique in their own way and the last book in the series is no exception.

About Penny Reid

Penny Reid has difficulty writing about herself in the third person. She finds it strange and unsettling. Therefore, Penny will now switch to the first person.

I'm originally from California but now live in the Southeast US with my family. I work full time in the biotech industry as a researcher. I work a lot. I'm also a full time mom to two diminutive adults (boy-5 and girl-3), wife, daughter, knitter, crocheter, sewer, general crafter, and thought hijacker.

I don't like to sit still unless I'm writing, reading, or knitting and I usually only knit in my knitting group... or at red lights while stuck in traffic. I only read on planes (where I'm trapped). Luckily, I travel a lot for work.

The voices in my head (characters) became so loud over the summer of 2012- specifically, Janie Morris- that I was forced to write Neanderthal Seeks Human, my first attempt at a full length novel. It took me 7 months.

If I could have any job in the world it would be my job because I feel like what I do makes a tangible difference in the lives of every living person. If I could have any life in the world it would be my life. Happiness is the seed of good fortune and success. Do what it takes to be happy and be a source of happiness for others.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
