The Wedding Runaway jumps right into action, with our heroine, Lydia, dressing herself up as a young man. When Victor meets her, he is immediately disturbed by feelings of attraction toward "him." I think this is handled extremely well--he's as freaked out as any hetero Regency gentleman would be, but the story doesn't lapse into homophobia. Of course, he finds out before long, and I love the way that happens.

A Daring Deception

Boston heiress Lydia Hamilton is betrothed at lastand soon betrayed when she finds that her fiancé cares more for her family's fortune than her love. Disguised as a young man, she flees to England, employing her skill at cards in Londons most elegant gambling clubs. But when the brash newcomer wins too much and too often, Victor Bartlett, the Earl of Wedmont, intervenes. To conceal her identity, Lydia has no choice but to accept his challenge: a duel at dawn.

A Dangerous Discovery

The dashing earl only meant to teach "Leonard" a lessonand he certainly intended to miss. But when the cursed pistols misfire, Victor is aghast to discover
that his wounded foe is female, and that Lydia's overprotective older brothers and irate fiancé are scouring London for her. Lydia begs him to hide her
until she is healed and Victor, as a gentleman, must agree. He is willing to risk everything to help so lovely a lady...even his heart.
