You are cordially invited to the wedding of Miss Heather Cynster . . . but not before she encounters kidnappers, danger, and a daring rescue at the hands of Viscount Breckenridge
Determined to hunt down her very own hero, one who will sweep her off her feet and into wedded bliss, and despairing of finding him in London’s staid ballrooms, Heather Cynster steps out of her safe world and boldly attends a racy soiree.
But her promising hunt is ruined by the supremely interfering Viscount Breckenridge, who whisks her out of scandal—and straight into danger, when a mysterious enemy seizes her, bundles her into a coach, and conveys her out of London.
Now it’s up to the notorious Breckenridge to prove himself the hero she’s been searching for all along . . .
Romance veteran Laurens opens a trilogy with her 16th Regency featuring the tony Cynster family (after Temptation and Surrender). Heather, 25 and unmarried, decides to take control of her future before she is declared "on the shelf." Never a shrinking violet, Heather sneaks into a society soiree hoping to meet the man of her dreams. Instead, she draws the attention of renowned rake Timothy Danvers, Viscount Breckenridge. Though handsome and charming, Heather feels Breckenridge is too old and too patronizing, especially when he condescendingly evicts her from the party. When thugs kidnap Heather, Breckenridge takes off in hot pursuit; after he catches up, Heather persuades him to stick close by and try to learn the kidnappers' motives. Laurens's fans will enjoy this tale of vile villains, a repentant rake, and a sassy spinster.
