Romantic Times hails Jill Barnett as "a true new star of the
genre!" Unfailingly engaging and original, she now concocts
another winning tale wherein a stubborn lord and a
high-spirited lass are locked in a battle of wills...and on
a collision course with love.
Most English girls meet their heart's desire across a
crowded ballroom or in a genteel parlor. Letitia Olive
Hornsby finds hers when she knocks him into a river. A
curly-haired, blue-eyed hellion of only eleven, she decides
even then that Richard, the dashing, handsome, and totally
disreputable son of the Earl of Downe, is the white knight
of her dreams.
Now fully grown and unexpectedly beautiful, Letty is
spinning a plan to save Richard from himself...by marrying
him, of course. And he soon has the bruises to prove it. The
insufferable, albeit unforgettable, chit has come back into
Richard's life with a crash -- literally falling into his
arms. He is struck by her softness, her dizzying scent, and
her impossible meddling in his ruinous drinking, gambling,
and amorous liaisons.
But when fate makes them prisoners of a ring of dangerous
smugglers, Richard discovers in his mischievous cellmate a
pure, romantic, questing spirit that sparks a flame in his
own shadowed heart. If only they can escape, a wondrous
passion can blaze free...and they can find a lifetime's
adventures in each other's arms.
