Originally appeared in the print anthology Three Weddings and a Kiss.
Gwendolyn Adams is about to propose to an earl. On his deathbed.
Gwendolyn Adams isn't shocked at being asked to save a handsome earl's dying line, even when she learns the prospective bridegroom is seriously ill and possibly insane. She's quite a good nurse, after all, and her family is famous for producing healthy male children. Those stories about his riding the moors half-naked on a pale white horse? Extremely intriguing—especially after she gets her first look at the gorgeous lunatic.
The Earl of Rawnsley wants only to lose what's left of his mind in peace and privacy. But his busybody relatives have saddled him with a surprise bride and orders to sire an heir forthwith. (And they say he's mad?) But with Gwendolyn, his health is returning, and his resistance ... crumbling. Is it possible that love is the finest madness of all?
Actually 3.5 stars-needs to be longer
I loved the book but I wanted more. It felt more like a long novella. Still it was so good and very complete as is. I just like like it could have had more to it. I was certainly ready to read more about them. I gave it four because it is so good, but it is quick, too quick for such a great couple which is why I titled it 3.5 stars. My favorite Chase book is lord of scoundrels and this is in the same vein, Jessica and Dain even make an appearance, but I felt like Chase had more in her she could have written about this great pairing....
