He had rescued her. Now she would rescue him
At the age of twenty, Catherine Carr was at the mercy of her aunt and her three cousins. Treated no better than a slave and threatened with an odious marriage, Catherine decided to escape.
As it would happen, she was rescued by Marcus, the Earl of Barrington, whom she had always secretly loved. Marcus, scarred in the war, had returned to London only to be cruelly rejected by his fiancee, Catherine's cousin.
Perceiving marriage would answer to both their needs, Marcus proposed and Catherine accepted. Knowing he did not love her did not change her determination to free him from his bonds of bitterness. She would gladly have paid any price, never suspecting how great the reward.

I absolutely loved this book. The story is part marriage of convenience and part wounded war hero regency. The story is quite the love story as both the hero and heroine are really good people-which is such a nice change of pace from the petulant beauty or notorious rake storyline that seems to pervade most regencies.
While I do not want to give the storyline away, lets just say that if you're like me and read a lot of traditional Regencies then I think you'll love this book. I finished it in a day it was so good. The bedroom scenes were mild to mildly flirtatious. The story abounds with villains, love stories, adventure and just a plain good story.
Highly recommended-5 stars
