READ THE BLURB
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.
READ THE REVIEW
This is a fun book! I loved the characters of Elijah and Amelia, even while I wanted to pick them up and shake them.
I'm not normally a big fan of romances that could be solved if the characters would only talk to each other, but in this case Rose Gordon makes it work. Given the social mores of the time, Amelia's reluctance to talk to Elijah about sexual matters is understandable... however, I had a little less patience with Elijah's reasoning.
Even giving that---Ms. Gordon draws characters that are easy to like. I've not read the rest of the series, but if they are as engaging as this one I'm looking forward to reading them. Good job, Rose Gordon!!
