Book Description

War hero and Horseman of the Apocalypse William Tyler de Sayre, Lord Clun, happens upon love while intending to avoid the catastrophe altogether by arranging a marriage to someone he’s never met.

Meanwhile, Lady Elizabeth Damogan, whose father betrothed her to the baron without so much as a ‘by your leave,’ will be damned if she marries a man she’s never met, much less a man who refuses to consider the possibility of love.

Until she realizes, sometimes it's the hero who needs saving.

More About the Author

Miranda Davis has loved Regency romances since Mr. Darcy won Elizabeth Bennett's heart. (Not that Miranda is 200 years old.) Miranda's mother must take responsibility for her daughter's love of Georgette Heyer.

At various points, she has earned degrees from Smith College and Harvard University and worked at everything from scooping ice cream to big-time advertising. When she's not busy with family along the Old Santa Fe Trail, she's happily dreaming of Regency England or reading about it. Or knitting. Or working on the next story slowly but surely.

Another important individual contributed to her efforts. Though he never read (that the author knows of), her hulking, brown, part-gargoyle dog provided the inspiration and the dignified model for Attila.

By the way, only one of the photos is of me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm, funny and tender 14 Feb. 2013
By Caz
Format:Kindle Edition
The Baron's Betrothal is a worthy follow up to The Duke's Tattoo: A Regency Romance of Love and Revenge, Though Not in That Order (The Horsemen of the Apocalypse Series). Like the hero of that novel, William Tyler de Sayre, Baron Clun is one of the so-called Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, named thus because of their audacity and courageous service during the Napoleonic Wars.

Our heroine, Lady Elizabeth Damogan is an independent-minded young woman who, at the beginning of the book, has fled London to escape the marriage that her father has arranged for her. Cleverly, she reasons that the last place anyone will look for her is on the estate of the man from whom she is hiding; and thus she ends up living in a small cottage on Clun's land in Shropshire.

Clun is a giant of a man - tall, dark and intimidating - and when he stumbles across Elizabeth for the first time, neither of them knows who the other is. Although they have been betrothed for the past year, they have never met. Clun soon discovers her identity, and decides to have a little fun at her expense by not immediately revealing himself to her, and teasing her about the decrepit state of her future husband.

While the pair experience a very strong physical attraction, they are also growing to like each other; and although Elizabeth is initially annoyed at Clun's deception, she is nonetheless pleased to discover that her intended is a man she could easily love, rather than the "toothless old macaroni" of Clun's description.

But therein lies the rub. Clun, the product of an unhappy marriage, his mother an incredibly bitter and malicious woman, doesn't want a love match.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable read 3 Mar. 2013
By M. Day
Format:Kindle Edition
No need for a synopsis of this e book as two reviewers have written extensive and accurate plot outlines. I have found that a favourable review from 'caz of frinton' ensures a jolly good read and, once again, she does not disappoint. Many thanks Caz for saving me time and money. Having an English proof-reader has made this story mostly free from the Americanisms so common in this genre and there are few, if any, errors or typos. I found this to be very refreshing and this increased my reading pleasure immensely. Please, MD, do the same with book 3; we shoot grouse, we don't 'hunt' them and I cannot think of a single grouse moor in Somerset. Move the timeline to September and have them shoot partridge and delight all us pedants. That aside, I would recommend both this and the first in the series highly and look forward to reading the last two. I appreciated the author's notes being interested in the historical facts and wondered if they could not be footnotes? It's easy to stick a bookmark at the back of a printed book but time consuming finding the correct location in an e book. When enthralled by the story, as I was, it's an unwanted distraction and my memory is not what it was. Nitpicking over; a great story, lovely characters and very good value. I would urge lovers of this genre to treat themselves to the first two in the series, you won't regret it and it will give this new and, IMHO, very talented author impetus to finish book 3. I can't wait to read the last two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful story from Miranda Davis 15 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Blurb: Poor William Tyler de Sayre, Lord Clun, finds true love while hoping to avoid the catastrophe altogether by arranging a marriage to someone he's never met. At the same time, Lady Elizabeth Chapin Damogan, whose father betrothed her to the baron without so much as a `by your leave,' will be damned if she marries a man she's never met, much less a man who refuses to consider the possibility of love.

This is the story of two very determined people learning to recognize that not all of their preconceptions about love and marriage are necessarily correct.

Our hero is William Tyler de Sayre, Baron Clun. He is dauntingly large, with a wild mane of black hair, a gruff manner of speaking, and a habit of scowling out from under his dark brows. Ladies and gentlemen alike find him intimidating, particularly given the fame he has earned as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, renowned for their ferocious exploits in the wars against Napoleon.

Clun has returned from the wars unscathed and is mindful of his duty to marry and beget an heir. He has no interest in subjecting himself to the "full horrors of the Marriage Mart," so he arranges with the Earl of Morefield to marry his daughter, Lady Elizabeth Damogen. Clun has never met the lady, but he doesn't need to. In his view, a "marriage required mutual honor, respect and wifely obedience. He wanted a sound marriage free of nincompoopery so he selected a spouse as his forebears had, based on rational considerations alone."

Clun most assuredly does not want a marriage like his parents had. "Their marriage, begun in the heat of impulse, had curdled like fresh milk on a hot day and left a permanently sour taste in the mouths of man and wife ever after.
