The only thing Lady Cordelia and Lord Rockport can agree on is their mutual abhorrence.
A Scottish rogue...
Gerard Highgate, Marquess of Rockport and the ton's most aloof rake, knows better than to wed an Englishwoman, especially one as prickly as Lady Cordelia. But when his mother dies and he finds himself saddled with her debts, he needs a wife at once.
An exacting Englishwoman…
Lady Cordelia knows hastiness in husband hunting leads to mistakes. But when she visits an aristocrat to warn that his life might be in danger, he misinterprets her suggestion to flee to Scotland.
An unexpected elopement…
Most elopements are born of love, not misunderstanding. Cordelia and Gerard have already broken that rule, but perhaps they can still make their marriage one of love.
