Overview

When Beth Hawley journeys to Lord Wraybourne's castle to help young Lady Sophie Kyle prepare for her wedding, she has to share her carriage with two unexpected travelers, the rakish Sir Marius Fletcher, who is stranded after his curricle overturns, and an unidentified elderly woman, found unconscious in a wrecked carriage.

As the date of Sophie's wedding draws near, Beth realizes some mysterious shadow from the past seems to haunt the bride and groom. The elderly woman, suffering from memory loss, may hold the key. Beth turns to Sir Marius for help, but her efforts are thwarted at every turn as she encounters a most unlikely villain-while her only ally seems to have his mind set more on romance than the danger at hand...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lady Sophie Kyle is engaged to marry Lord Randal Ashby. The two have been in love since childhood, but two weeks before the wedding she decides he has been forced into a declaration and therefore doesn't really love her. In the dismals, she manages to get kidnapped. Beverly ( Lord Wraybourne's Betrothed, The Stanforth Secrets, LJ 6/15/89) builds her current novel with events and characters from previous ones. A reader with knowledge of the two earlier Regencies will understand the machinations of this one, for the denouement rests on previous knowledge. This novel can stand alone (barely), but is much better understood in context. Piers Verderan, the sinister, sardonic, and brooding antihero friend of Lord Randal is sure to be the hero of the next installment. Buy if you have Beverly's other books and they proved popular.-- Paula M. Zieselman, Debevoise & Plimpton, New York

A relly lame book. Very little plot, poor character development.
