Lord David Cardiff had been hit with a piece of shrapnel while fighting in Spain. He returned to England on wounded leave. En route to London he stopped for the night at an inn. He overheard a lady nearby in need of help and did not hesitate to offer it. ............ Miss Thea Stafford had been abducted by her sister's fiancé and was being taken to Gretna Green. Her abductor needed money and Thea had much more than her sister. He did not care that Thea hated him. Se was thoroughly compromised! But Lord Cardiff made short work of THAT idea. ........... One the man was gone, Lord Cardiff decided to delay his trip to London and escort Thea back into the arms of her family. Thea explained how single-minded and hard headed her two brothers and father were. He understood shortly thereafter when the trio showed up to 'rescue' her! ............. One her relatives understood the problem had been dealt with, it should have all been over. Instead, the father ordered his sons to force Thea and Cardiff to Gretna Green at gun point and see them wedded. He had decided that Thea HAD to wed and Cardiff would suit just fine. From then on, the world went mad! .......... ***** This book is so good that I read it twice! It is over flowing with humor and I found Thea and Cardiff to be the only sane people during most of the book. Thea's family is more 'stubborn' (a.k.a. pig-headed) than anyone I have ever met! ........ Author Gayle Buck has earned herself a place of honor on my bookshelf. I can hardly wait for her next release. Astounding!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
