The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband by Julia Quinn Audiobook

With her brother, Thomas, injured on the battlefield in the colonies, Cecilia Harcourt is forced to choose between living with a maiden aunt and marrying a scheming cousin.
Instead, she opts for option three and sets out on a journey across the Atlantic to heal her brother.

Instead of her brother, she finds her brother’s best friend, the handsome officer Edward Rokesby, after a week of searching. Cecilia swears she’ll do whatever it takes to save this soldier’s life, even if it means telling one little lie, and he’s unconscious and in desperate need of her help.

When Edward wakes up, he is more than a little perplexed. The blow to his head had wiped out three months of his memory, but he was certain he remembered getting married. He recognizes Cecilia Harcourt, even if he doesn’t recall her face, and with everyone calling her his wife, he decides it must be true.

Cecilia risks her entire future by giving herself completely to the man she loves. When the truth is revealed, Edward, on the other hand, may have a few surprises in store for the new Mrs. Rokesby.

More than tolerable i suppose although nothing to the comforts of home the officers are housed two to a two-room apartment so we have a bit of privacy i have been assigned to live with another lieutenant a fellow named roxby he is the son of an earl if you can believe that from thomas harcourt to his sister cecilia edward fought to breathe his heart felt as if it were trying to claw its way out of his chest and all he could think was that he had to get off this cot he had to figure out what was going on he had to stop cecilia cried throwing herself on him in an effort to keep him down you must calm yourself let me up he argued although some tiny rational part of his mind was trying to remind him that he didn’t know where to go please she begged transferring her weight to her grip on each of his wrists take a moment catch your breath he looked up at her chest heaving what is happening she swallowed and glanced about i think we should wait for the doctor but he was far too agitated to listen what day is this he demanded she blinked as if taken off guard friday the date he bit off she didn’t answer right away when she did her words were slow careful it is the 25th day of june edward’s heart started pounding anew what if you will only wait it cannot be edward shoved himself into a more upright position you were wrong she shook her head slowly i’m not wrong no no he looked frantically about the room colonel he yelled doctor anyone it would stop she cried moving to block him when he flung his legs over the side of the bed please wait for the doctor to see you you there he ordered pointing a shaky arm toward a dark skinned man sweeping the floor what day is it the man looked to cecilia with wide eyes silently asking for guidance what day is it edward said again the month tell me the month again the man’s eyes flicked to cecilia’s but he answered it is june sir end of the month no edward said falling back to the bed no he closed his eyes trying to force his thoughts through the pounding in his skull there had to be a way to fix this if he just concentrated hard enough focused on the last thing he could remember he snapped his eyes back open and looked straight at cecilia i don’t remember you her throat worked and edward knew he should be ashamed of himself for bringing her so close to tears she was a lady she was his wife but surely she would forgive him he had to know he had to understand what was happening you said my name she whispered when you woke up i know who you are he said i just don’t know you her face trembled as she rose to her feet and she tucked a lock of her hair behind her ear before clasping her hands together she was nervous that much was easy to see and then the most disjointed thought popped into his head she didn’t look very much like that miniature her brother carried about her mouth was wide and full nothing like that sweet mysterious half moon in her portrait and her hair wasn’t golden either at least not the heavenly shade rendered by the painter it was more of a dark blonde rather like thomas is actually although not quite as shot through with brass he supposed she didn’t spend as much time in the sun you are cecilia harcourt aren’t you he asked because it had just occurred to him she had never actually confirmed this fact she nodded yes of course and you’re here in new york he stared at her searching her face why he saw her eyes flick toward the other side of the room even as she gave her head a little shake it’s complicated but we are married he wasn’t sure whether he’d said it as a statement or a question more than tolerable i suppose although nothing to the comforts of home the officers are housed to to a two-room apartment so we have a bit of privacy i have been assigned to live with another lieutenant a fellow named roxby he is the son of an earl if you can believe that from thomas harcourt to his sister cecilia edward fought to breathe
