Abigail Moore wasn't looking for a husband when she boarded a ship bound for England. Even without her innate distrust of men and their careless betrayals, her upbringing alone was sure to prevent any decent match. So when a chance encounter with handsome Bradford St. James, Earl of Lynbrook, compromised her virtue, she was horrified to learn he had offered for her hand — even though she was tempted by his masculine charm.
Lovely American Abby was the last woman Brad would have imagined as his bride, but he couldn't deny that he was moved by her innocence — and enticed by her beauty. Yet, his sweet wife seemed to be keeping a secret from him, so when he found himself in danger more than once, he began to suspect that Abby was behind it. Now he would move heaven and earth to find the truth . . . and protect the passionate love they had found together. Precious Gem Historical Romance - # 78
