Bestselling author Valerie Bowman sets the stage in Regency England for her Playful Brides series, where couples' misadventures on the way to the altar are witty, romantic romps based on some of the world's most beloved plays. The sixth charming entry, The Legendary Lord, is inspired by George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion.
THE MAKING OF A LEGEND…
When Christian Forester, Viscount Berkeley, flees the stuffy ballrooms of London for his Scottish hunting lodge, the last thing he expects to find ensconced before his fire is an incredibly beautiful woman. But the plight of lovely young Sarah Highgate, who has run away from an unwanted betrothal, inspires an eminently practical exchange. He’ll safeguard her reputation with the ton while she advises him how to best attract a proper bride…
As the undisputed belle of the season, Sarah has enchanted plenty of suitors. Still, she isn’t interested in marriage, especially not to the pompous bore her father has chosen for her. But her hasty escape seems reckless now that she’s estranged from her family and has no one to count on besides Christian. Turning the lucklesslord into such a catch has another unplanned consequence for Sarah: Has he run away with her heart?
The Legendary Lord is the sixth installment of Valerie Bowman's Regency-set Playful Brides series.
Bowman's sixth 19th-century Playful Brides tale (after The Untamed Earl) is a sweet and fulfilling snowbound romance. Lady Sarah Highgate has run away from London and the betrothal her father has secured for her, only to land in the part of the Scottish Highlands. After she and her governess lose their way, they wind up at the cabin of Christian Forester, Viscount Berkeley. When Sarah and Christian are snowed in together with no chaperone, she agrees to help him find a wife as he tries to concoct a plausible tale about her disappearance from London. Neither counts on their mutual attraction, which continues to grow when they return to London even though Sarah is still engaged to a man she dislikes. Enjoyable characters from earlier installments fill the pages as they try to figure out how to unite Sarah and Christian. The relationship begins as a friendship, and readers will love watching it develop into intense attraction and love.
