I love almost everything by Ms. Layton. Would recommend anything by her for a good read.
Her father's ill-fated ventures land Dulcie Dawn Blessing in London's notorious debtor's prison. In a desperate scheme to win her freedom, she consents to marry a stranger ... for a day. Down on his Luck but ever a gentleman, Crispin West agrees to oblige a lady in need, even if it means playing the groom in a mock wedding. But flustered by the unexpected loveliness of his bride, Crispin signs the marriage certificate with his true name, Viscount West of Darnley Hall.
Then Crispins fortunes are miraculously recovered, allowing him to proceed with his plan to marry Society's darling, Lady Charlotte Barrington. But the very night he is to ask for her hand, Dulcie appears at his doorstep. Their marriage certificate, legally binding with Crispin's signature, has disappeared and may have already fallen into the hands of rogues intent on mischief--or worse. Now Dulcie and Crispin must race against time to retrieve the document ... while an unbidden passion threatens to irrevocably alter their future....
Four stars, a happy story. Great for a rainy day. Love was lost but gets found.
