Kit Adderley is the worst man in England, a bored libertine who’ll do anything to entertain himself, including kidnapping the strong-minded, freckled dab of a girl promised to his partner in crime.
Bryony Marton is trapped in a quiet life and looking for escape, when her awful fiancé’s best friend inadvertently offers it. Everything would be fine if he hadn’t kidnapped her pretty young cousin as well. And now there’s a handsome young Bow Street Runner chasing them..!
On the road, Bryony embraces her freedom, and she’s more than willing to embrace her captor, a man who kicks over convention and isn’t nearly as bad as he and the rest of the world think he is, but now she has a new problem: how to convince the worst man in England, Scotland and Wales that he’s the best man for her?
