As children, Arabella Trent and Gilbert St. John were best of friends. Wherever he led, she happily followed. Their friendship held fast until Gilbert went off to fight Napoleon and Bella stayed home. Years passed and their youthful camaraderie faded to pleasant memory.

Now Gilbert is home from the wars and Bella needs his help. From the moment she climbs in his bedroom window, he knows he's in trouble. Can this beautiful desirable young lady be the same hoydenish friend from his childhood? Can Gilbert rescue Bella from her desperate circumstances even if it means . . . marriage?

EXCERPT:

With both hands on the broad shoulders, Arabella shook with all her might. "Gilbert St. John! Wake up this instant!"

Strong arms clasped around her middle and pulled her down on top of the hard body under the sheet. "I'm awake, love. How about a kiss?"

She tried to push away. "Let go of me, you big oaf! You don't want to kiss me. I'm not one of your bits of muslin." She wiggled and pushed, and wiggled again.

Gilbert grabbed hold of her wrists, and rolled over, reversing their positions. "Just one kiss. One kiss, love. That's all I want."

Before she could protest, Arabella found herself being passionately kissed like she'd never been kissed in her whole life. Of course, she'd never actually been kissed at all. It was a sad reflection, really. She was twenty-two years old and practically on the shelf.

She surrendered to the onslaught of Gilbert's kiss. Just a few seconds more, then she would call a halt. Maybe another second . . . the sensation was pleasurable. No, that didn't describe what she was feeling. She shouldn't be feeling anything, because this was Gilbert for goodness sakes. The pressure of his mouth on hers was making her melt inside. And a warmth in her stomach began to flame into something bigger, stronger . . .

ABOUT THIS BOOK:

To His Lady's Rescue is the first installment in my series Damsels in Breeches. I wanted to try my hand at writing a novella and I had a blast. Bella and Gilbert's story is (I hope) a fun fast-paced read. Warning: This is not a sweet Traditional Regency. Oh no. It's a sexy little Regency Romp. Enjoy!!!

This was another favorite of mine since the story was based on one of my most loved themes: childhood friends that become lovers and partners for life in marriage. I love how it seemed such a natural thing for the childhood friendship to progress to lifetime love.

Nice story but ends to fast. Even thou the book is 300 and some odd pages it turns 2 to 3 pages at a tme. It only took me a few hours to read. Book starts out really well but ends very quickley and with just what you would think.

I have to commend someone for writing anything past a few pages, but that doesn't mean it's good. Don't waste your change or your time! There are better FREE books available.

I wasn't impressed with this book. No surprises, only one twist and you knew how it would end. . I too, liked how it started, but went down hill from that point.
