WHAT'S WORSE THAN A RELUCTANT BRIDEGROOM? A FORGOTTEN BRIDE!
Zoe Bennett was in a terrible fix. A shetered vicar's daughter, she had stars in her eyes when a handsome lord asked her to dance...and nearly swooned when he kissed her. Then he proposed that they elope - and she said yes. If only she'd said no! For Zoe, it was love at first sight, but for the inebriated Jerrold Layton, it was a night he didn't remember. Wooed, won, and wed in hours, Zoe was the Honorable Mres. Jerrold Layton...for life. But no one knew except the Scottish preacher who'd secretly joined them in marriage.
Now, seven year later, the reformed Lord Layton is astonished to learn that he possesses both an heir and a wife. Zoe claims to despise him; Jerrold demands they reunite...in name only. In either case, the ton is headed for a scandal. For when a warring couple starts fencing and flirting, true love can't be very far away!
When a rakish lord proposes, it can bring romance--or ruin!
