Lady Caroline Forrester is on the run from her brother's scheme to marry her off to the highest bidder.

    Interesting

    Good writing with a good mix of humor and romantic tension. I did get frustrated that neither the hero or heroine actively tried to change the expected outcome. I will look into other books by this author
