Although this book is part of a trilogy, each book is a stand-alone story in its own right.
Charlotte Webster thought she was eloping with the love of her life. She did not expect it to be a ploy and a way to force her way to a marriage with a stranger, who wanted an innocent bride. Held in a house of ill repute, there is little time to act to try and escape and few options to consider.
Lord Halkyn is a peer much in demand, but an expert at avoiding marriage. He has always had fixed ideas on love-it causes too many problems to be worth the trouble. He did consider marriage to one lady once, but it would have been a business transaction. Unfortunately for him, the lady in question had wanted to marry for love and had refused him. Rather than ridicule her, his opinion of her increased and he began to wonder if there was something in the nonsense that was love after all.
When visiting his favorite house of ill repute, run by a Baron, he is accosted by a woman. He is begged for help in escaping from the house. Whether it was the real fear in her voice, or whether it was the devil in him, he helped her. Suddenly his life was to become far more complicated.
Protecting an innocent, employing the services of Bow Street and racing across country, all situations that he could never have anticipated when he was first sought out by Miss Charlotte Webster.
His life was never going to be the same again.

Nice idea, but with inconsistencies
It was pretty good, not the worst, far from it but not the best. I like a little bit more intimate scenes in my romance books.
Stephen was my favorite, mainly because I love "watching" him fight falling in love. Also that he had a sense of honor.
Stephen was my favorite. I loved the narration, the fact that it was not too British, brought the character to my mind like watching a movie.
Yes, I loved the scenes during Charlotte's capture, her being thrown out of the coach, and Stephen frantically searching for her, her rescue by neighbors, and her short term memory loss..
