Lady Anne Gascoigne is eager to take her wedding vows-until she discovers her devious fiancé has conspired to let King Charles II steal her virtue. Now, to save her honor and her life, she must flee under the protection of a notorious but charming rake who has just escaped hanging-and proceeds to win her heart.
Finally, a Historical Romance, written in the mid 2000's NOT set in Regency England. Who could have guessed?
Very well plotted, great characters, a wonderful courtship between two lovers during Charles I's reign. Sneaky courtiers, secondary characters, a beleivable romance between the main characters, time AWAY from court. Very nicely balanced book.
