Review quote

"Henry and Daphne are willfully blind to how perfect they are for each other, so every encounter is entertaining and slightly manic. They clash constantly, but their kisses are sizzling. Their eventual mutual epiphany, complete with a madcap race to Scotland, is the perfect finishing touch to this delightful Regency." -- Publishers Weekly on AND THE MISS RAN AWAY WITH THE RAKE "In order to concoct a great family feud you need three elements: two passionate families and a trifling incident that might have brushed over with an apology - save for one thing - did I mention the passion part?" -- Romantic Times on AND THE MISS RAN AWAY WITH THE RAKE "The book charms and entertains, and the hook is unique and fun, earning a few extra points for originality: a good bet for historical romance fans." -- Kirkus Reviews on AND THE MISS RAN AWAY WITH THE RAKE "Ms. Boyle's writing is always a pleasure to read. She has a knack for creating engaging and entertaining stories with just the right amount of romance. Her characters are always likable." -- Fresh Fiction on AND THE MISS RAN AWAY WITH THE RAKE
