An Inconvenient Engagement
If life were fair, beautiful Cassandra would be on her way to enjoying her first London Season instead of having an awkward breakfast with the man she was promised to long ago. Christopher Warrender's years a prisoner of war in France have done nothing for his table manners, though they have given him a bold, defiant spirit that Cassandra finds oddly compelling. In fact, she doesn't know whether to feel relief or indignation when Christopher angrily informs her that he has no intention of leaving one prison only to be trapped in a loveless marriage. She is free to pursue her Season in London while he in turn will entertain himself with a bevy of society beauties!
A Timely Game of Love
Christopher has been accused of many things, but failing to expire at his fiancée’s convenience truly nips at his pride. He understands what it is to be held hostage, and he has no desire to keep Cassandra from finding true happiness with some perfectly faultless gentleman, even if he has to run away to London to free her. He never expects the lady to follow . . . or for her beauty and charm to capture his heart. And when Cassandra falls for a fortune-hunting cad, the only way Christopher can possibly save her from a disastrous mistake is to insist on his right to marry her first!
