A HASTY BETROTHAL
Alexandra Saxon had journeyed all the way from America to introduce herself to her grandfather, Lord Saxon, and had no intention of being turned away, despite her unannounced arrival in the middle of the night. It was only in the morning that she made the shocking discovery that she had forced herself into the wrong place, and spent the night, not at her ancestral home, but at the estate of Nicholas Mannering, Earl of Linton...a handsome bachelor!
The dashing young earl was only too happy to save the lady's reputation -- and avoid a duel with her grandfather -- by announcing his engagement to the lovely stranger. But Alexandra was not about to carry their little farce all the way to the altar. And spurning his amorous advances, she led the earl on a spirited chase, with more than a few surprises.
