Reissued by Signet, December 2005, with "Francesca's Rake."
WHILE ESCAPING ONE SCANDAL, SHE CRASHES INTO ANEW ONE! When trespassing on a lavish estate, Diana Whitney strikes Colonel Alex Valliant squarely on the head with a frying pan. Rather than see the pretty interloper fall into disgrace, the love-struck soldier asks for her hand. But Diana refuses to march quietly to the altar — and rejects the colonel's offer.
But when Diana's uncle threatens to marry her off to a man she finds completely inappropriate, she accepts Alex's lusty proposal. However, Diana soon must make a bold gamble based on the calling of her heart — and engage in a battle for a future founded on love . . .
