Your pretty summer beach tote will arrive packed with
Elizabeth Boyle's new book, AND THE
MISS RAN AWAY WITH THE RAKE, a Jane Austen notebook for
recording your summer romances (or romantic reads), and
autographed copies from two of Elizabeth's favorite authors,
Cathy Maxwell and Lorraine Heath.
Miss Daphne Dale is a practical young lady with no illusions
of romance--until she answers an advertisement by a
"sensible gentleman looking for a sensible lady." Convinced
she fits the bill, she begins a romantic exchange with "Mr.
Dishforth." Meanwhile, as she helps her best friend, Tabitha
Timmons prepare for her wedding to the Duke of Preston, she
is constantly thrown into the company of Lord Henry Seldon,
the duke's uncle. The two of them clash constantly, all the
while discovering a passionate connection that makes no
Lord Henry Seldon is not amused when Preston put a joke of
an advertisement in the paper calling for a sensible wife
for Henry. And when letters start pouring in, he is furious.
That is, until one note catches his eye-a chiding scold from
a "Miss Spooner." But when Henry discovers that his
correspondence is with none other than Miss Daphne Dale, he
doesn't know whether to flee to the continent or take the
passionate and infuriating minx with him.
