When Anne Gardiner slips from a ladder into the arms of a handsome stranger, her unstable father, Colonel Gardiner, deems the innocent embrace cause for immediate marriage. Anne quickly agrees while the flustered Robert Weston stammers in amazement.

At fist believing he's been taken in by charlatans, Weston eventually sees that the "marriage" was performed for the Colonel's sake and that Anne had as little choice in the matter as he did. His feelings change completely when he learns that she's sacrificed her own reputation to protect his name. Despite their rocky beginning, Weston finds himself drawn to Anne. And Anne is not immune to the kindness he directs her way. Weston's heart has told him that love it overrated. Anne has survived on her own for many years. Will they trust God as they step into a new relationship? Will they recognize love when it finally reaches them?

Avid reader of Lori Wick. This book I have 2 of so that is why I am posting here. Hope you enjoy

This book introduces the characters of Anne Gardiner and Robert Weston quickly, and gives them the impetus to fall in love: Gardiner's senile father forces them to marry (at swordpoint, no less!) when he rescues her from falling off a ladder and misinterprets their circumstances.

That a senile old man with a sword is allowed to wander England without supervision is ludicrous enough, but then we're expected to believe that Weston really is rescuing Anne from a life of poverty. There is one cute scene that follows near the end, where Anne is dressing and Weston watches her from a mirror--that scene had wit and charm. Only if the rest of the book were so fortunate. This series is dull at best and tediously boring and overly preachy at worst. Find another of Wick's books to read.
