A runaway bride jumps out of a window—and into the clutches of a rake—in this witty Regency tale by “a brilliant star of the romance genre” (RT Book Reviews).
Ellen Marling lives in terror of her wedding night to the beastly Baron Basil Brockhaven. After she is forced into the marriage by her father, a leap in the dark from the bedroom window seems more appealing than spending even one night with the loathsome lord . . .
Until she discovers her leap has delivered her straight into the hands of the notorious Marquess of Trent, as handsome as he is hedonistic. Ellen has traded a monstrous husband for a masterly rake, and now faces the prospect of the greatest danger of all: falling in love.
