It’s her wedding day and there is no groom in sight. But why should Amelia Brice be surprised? Hiram, Lord Friar is known for having no gentleman’s honor to speak of and his jilting her on their wedding day makes it official.
Elijah Banks cannot allow his childhood friend to continue to be shamed this way. It’s been almost an hour past the time when the wedding was to start, and that bounder still hasn’t shown up. Unable to sit still a second longer, Elijah does the only thing that seems logical from where he stands: kidnap the bride and marry her himself in order to escape this scandal with one far more forgiving for a young lady’s reputation.
The only trouble is, she has a secret…but so does he; hers is big…but his is bigger.
Review: I am so happy that I decided to read this book. I have read several by this author before and I loved them.
I couldn’t imagine what I would do if I had past out at a costume ball and woke up the next morning on a strange bed and my clothes half way off. I would be ashamed and I wouldn’t want to show my face. That isn’t what Amelia does. She decides to marry the guy who really makes her stomach sick. Even though she had been waiting on true love and the one she loved just wouldn’t give her the time of day.
Elijah Banks has been in love with Amelia for awhile. Even though she used to run around trying to kiss him when she was younger and he didn’t want anything to do with her. Needless to say that when he got older he changed his mind like his father warned him he would.
This story was well written and I couldn’t help but laugh. You could tell that these two were meant to be together and you just wanted to say enough already and just admit your feelings to each other. That wouldn’t have made a great story line so we got to enjoy it a little more. I was beginning to think that they both would never reveal their secrets to each other.
Every time I read a book by this author I am drawn in more and more. She just weaves her stories so well that I get so into them. I enjoy the play between the characters. She always makes sure that you get some laughs out of her stories and every one of her characters are strong and know how to take care of things. They have spunk and you just know that you will get a great story.
I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves a great historical and enjoys the romance between a great couple.
