Overview

Madcap Tomboy...
When the local magistrate jailed Jacelyn Trevaine's pet dog as a public nuisance, the country miss knew he meant to blackmail her into socializing with his nephew. High-spirited Jacelyn decided to free her dog by kidnapping the precious nephew, but unfortunately she abducted the wrong gentleman! Her captive was none other than handsome Lord Leigh Claibourne--returned war hero and rake extraordinaire. And four hours alone with the libertine Earl was tantamount to social ruin. Of course if she was already ruined, Jacelyn may as well give society something to be scandalized about...

Hardened Womanizer...
Claibourne found country life tiresome and dull ... until he was kidnapped by an irrepressible chit whose candor was utterly disarming. Even rakes have their points of honor, however, and when the situation threatened to compromise Jacelyn, the cynical nobleman was forced to give the appearance of being betrothed to her. Claibourne never gave something for nothing. And in the case of the deliciously appealing Jacelyn, he'd hold her reputation hostage…for a rake's ransom.

A fun romp Considering fox hunting to be inhumane Jacelyn Trevaine managed to interfere at every hunt and Squire George Bottwick couldn’t take it anymore. When Jacey wasn’t repentant enough after her latest effort the Squire jailed her dog, Penelope, for being a public nuisance. Jacey was outraged and with the squire throwing the gauntlet Jacey planned to get the upper hand. She knew the Squire’s nephew, Lord Arthur Ponsonby, was arriving at the estate that evening, so she planned to take him hostage and demand her dog be released as the ransom. Wearing a groom’s outgrown clothes, she waylaid a man and horse on the road and her plan was on track. Then everything went wrong. Or was it right? Once again Ms. Metzger had me excitedly turning the pages. With well-developed characters and a delicious plot filled with humor I didn’t want to put the story down until it had reached its conclusion. Barbara Metzger’s books are a guilty pleasure I so look forward to reading. *Book source ~ Many thanks to Untreed Reads for providing me with a review copy. Please see disclaimer page on my blog.
