For my #2 challenge (Title With 'Love'), I read Love and Mayhem by Nicole Cody.

Rather than return to the convent, Elizabeth decides to take a chance on marriage to the dour Lord Kirkheathe.

Raymond Destienne had a reason to distrust all women - years ago, he had killed his first wife, Allicia, in self defense. Her death left him with a ruined voice and a broken heart. His ove…
