A brother with a disability, a fiancé lost at sea, a truly nasty villainess and an American in London in 1812 while feelings still run high between Britain and the former colonies . . . what could possibly go wrong?
Judith Bosworth, of Philadelphia, loved Mr. Gilbert but he was captured by the British and they say he was lost at sea. She arrives in London, with her beloved mentally challenged brother, Matthew, in tow, determined to find out what really happened to Mr. Gilbert and whether a doctor there can help Matthew.
Sir Richard Warfield thought it would be a good idea for his mother to invite Miss Bosworth to visit. Now he must shepherd both Judith and her brother safely through the shoals of London society. His task is even more complicated when a former love tries to destroy not only him but any possible object of his affection.
Together they must find a way to outwit those who would harm them—or Judith's beloved brother—and the answers she seeks. Love wasn't supposed to be part of the equation.
Note: The primary romance has been totally rewritten in this updated version of the book previously published as a Signet Traditional Regency with the original title of Twice Betrothed.
