Rascal's Return . . .
Miss Eloise Kendall had long known that Gregory Ward was a rascal in the first degree. So when he returned from London to visit Threwsbury Park – and raise money for his burgeoning political career – she assumed his warm demeanor belied a heart as cold as ice. Eloise hadn't forgotten the times before when he'd embarrassed her. And no longer the schoolgirl Gregory would remember from his youth, lovely Eloise would resist his superficial charms.
But when her young brother is kidnapped, Gregory goes into action, with money for a ransom and cold steel waiting for the brutes who would harm young Jeremy. And in the heat of the moment, the mistakes of the past melt away like winter's frost - and Eloise and Gregory's love is left to bloom.
