All were shocked at the announcement of the “cursed” Lady Claire Cavensham to Lord Alexander Hallworth, the Marquess of Pembrooke, especially since she is already engaged to another unfortunate Lord. Perhaps she will make it to the altar this time with one of these fine gentlemen! Could her run of bad luck finally be at an end? It’s highly doubtful in this writer’s humble opinion. —Midnight Cryer
No one is left breathless at the imperious pronouncement of her engagement to Lord Pembrooke more than Claire. She hardly knows the dangerously outrageous man!
But after three engagements gone awry and a fourth going up in glorious flames, she isn’t in a position to refuse…especially once she realizes that Lord Pembrooke makes her want to believe she’s not a bad luck bride anymore…
Mr. Devan Farris, a notorious flirt, if he does say so himself, meets his match when he accepts the vicar position in the village of Thistledown, the domain of the widowed marchioness, Lady Avalon Cavensham Warwyk.
Lady Warlock as Devan affectionately calls her wants nothing to do with the irreverent vicar, and she definitely doesn’t need him poking into her business. When they’re locked in the wine cellar overnight, sparks fly, and soon they find themselves forced to marry.
