With her betrothal to a duke in tatters and scandal imminent, Diana Kingman has two choices: live in certain ignominy or flee into obscurity. Diana wants solitude. She never wished to wed in the first place. However, her father will stop at nothing to betroth her to one of the finest titles in the matter how loathsome the bearer. Escape is Diana's only option, and she'll pay any price to achieve freedom.

Universally blamed for the death of his wife and unborn child, Simon Hastings doesn't dispute his guilt over an accident he cannot even remember. He hasn't had a drink since, nor a moment's peace. Determined to be a better man, Simon rescues a young woman in need--only to be accused of kidnapping. They must marry to save him from prison. But how can a man haunted by the love he lost and a woman afraid to get too close find happiness together?

Review quote

"...everything I could ever ask for in a historical romance. Aside from being romantic, this book also has a bit of adventure, which is always welcomed... impossible to stop reading."

"...Darcy will send you back in time with a lush setting, rich characters and an angst/love filled story will be enjoyed."

- The Reading Café

"This is a fast paced novel that held me in until the last page."

- Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
