For better or for worse

Tired of being wooed for her dowry, Lady Madeleine Castleigh has given up on finding true love. But on her way to elope with a boring but honorable philanthropist, her carriage is seized by a nobleman on the run. Maddie is alarmed, especially when she catches sight of Jack Martingale, Marquess of Blackthorne, exactly the sort of wickedly attractive man she's sworn to avoid.

Chased by a powerful duke with revenge on his mind and a private army in tow, Jack has no choice but to confiscate Madeleine's carriage. He promises to take his leave once they arrive at the wedding in Gretna Green, but he doesn't count on his growing desire for the blue-eyed beauty. When the unexpected appearance of Maddie's father and the mistakes of a drunken priest alter everyone's plans, Maddie is furious—until she discovers that Blackthorne's kisses arouse a passion in her she'd long ago stopped praying for.

Review:

"Merry romps and derring-do feature prominently in Galen's latest Misadventures in Matrimony series entry (after Good Groom Hunting). Lady Madeleine Castleigh, rescuer of lonely orphans, destitute widows and abused animals, has tired of suitors interested only in controlling her (and her considerable dowry), so she decides to elope with a boring do-gooder who won't stand in the way of her charitable pursuits. Fate intervenes in the form of handsome, brooding Jack Martingale, marquess of Blackthorne, who commandeers Maddie's coach on the way to the wedding. Jack and his irrepressible brother, Nick, are fleeing the wrath of the notorious duke of Bleven, and Maddie, along with her cousin Ashley, is unwittingly drawn into their madcap adventure. Pursued also by an innkeeper with a grudge and Ashley's irate father, the scramble to outrun Bleven's henchmen draws Maddie and Jack together; when they finally make it to the wedding, a mishap involving a drunken priest ensures the odd pair will be spending a lot more time together. Eventually, both passion and tragic secrets are revealed, as Galen's spirited characters, lively dialogue, breakneck pace and great sense of fun propel this smart-if-standard Regency toward a happy conclusion." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Galen delivers the third installment of her Misadventures in Matrimony series, in which four young ladies vow never to marry, only to be swept away by true love. Original.

About the Author

Shana Galen is a former public school teacher in Houston, Texas. Newly married, Shana lives with her husband and two cats. She writes almost full time, which requires daily trips to the mall because shopping is the only activity that really allows her to think. (That's her story, and she's sticking to it!)
