Facing an arranged political marriage, Diana Exeley flees her betrothal party for a deserted boathouse. When her intended and his mistress appear, she hides in a rowboat—and is carried off by the Thames. Rescued by the mysterious recluse who inhabits an overgrown island, Diana feigns amnesia. Playing for time, she prays she can avoid a loveless marriage ... and follow her own heart. Regency Romance by Nancy Butler; originally published by Signet
Still remember the first read
New author, first novel published, not the usual ton-set story.

Get all your rights back, Nancy, please, so that I don't have to wait years for a move to a house with adequate shelf space.
