Marriage is out of the question!
A successful horse breeder and self-proclaimed rake, Harry Lester samples women like wines. But after having his heart trampled upon by someone he actually loved, he has no intention of falling for a woman again, let alone be ensnared by the trap of marriage. Now, with a large inheritance to his name, Harry knows that he'd best start running from London's matchmaking mothers and widows.
Harry heads for the racing town of Newmarket, only to encounter Mrs. Lucinda Babbacombe, a beautiful, independent widow. And before he knows it, Harry vows to protect Lucinda from the town full of lonely gambling men, despite her refusal to accept his countless offers of help. Lucinda is extraordinary: an intelligent, tender, marriage-worthy woman... but will Harry let himself be taken prisoner in this most passionate of traps?

An Unwilling Conquest
I can’t imagine the heroine in this book would waver as much as is written. One moment she is strong and clever, the next she acts as a quavering pudding. Then she has no voice what so ever when the hero smacks her bottom for having been nearly abducted. Ugh! Don’t bother if you have one iota of female courage.
this book starts on chapter 6, kind of inportant info. missing..........
