Review ~ Not Quite A Husband by Sherry Thomas

Rating 4.5!!

Book Description (from the author's website): Their marriage lasted only slightly longer than the honeymoon—to no one’s surprise, not even Bryony Asquith's. A man as talented, handsome, and sought after by society as Leo Marsden couldn't possibly want to spend his entire life with a woman who rebelled against propriety by becoming a doctor. Why, then, three years after their annulment and half a world away, does he track her down at her clinic in the remotest corner of India?
Leo has no reason to think Bryony could ever forgive him for the way he treated her, but he won't rest until he’s delivered an urgent message from her sister—and fulfilled his duty by escorting her safely back to England. But as they risk their lives for each other on the journey home, will the biggest danger be the treacherous war around them—or their rekindling passion?

My Thoughts: This was my first book by Sherry Thomas. I really enjoyed the story it had a lot of different elements that you don't see in historical romance. There was the location the story mostly took place in India and what it now Pakistan. It also took place at the turn of the century (1897). The couple is divorced and the heroine is a doctor. So with all those different elements it made for a different and refreshing romance novel. I'm not usually a fan of books that focus around a huge misunderstanding between the hero and heroine, but Ms. Thomas made this work. Bryony was a great heroine she was very strong and independent. Leo was great he is what I would call a Beta hero. I thought that they complimented each other. I did find the location a little confusing I kept googling the different places so I would have an idea of where they were. If you are looking for something a little different I would definitely give Sherry Thomas a try.
