If only she will fall in love with Jamie 00 as Jamie's devoted older sister predicts 00 the family's financial woes will be solved.

Though she dare not admit it, even to herself, Axia dreads being wed to a stranger. Suddenly Jamie realizes that he savors even her most barbed words life the rarest nectar..that he is falling desperately in love with this bold, maddening beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! 30 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
What a great book! It's so romantic that Jamie would give up a "rich" woman for a "poor" cousin for love...and then he finds out what he really got!! It was so much fun to watch how the love developed between Jamie and Axia, to sit there and scream out "Just tell him!!" I felt every heartache and laughed right along with all the characters. What a great read!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced romance, with lots of laughs! 5 Aug 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Axia is in a dilemma. She is the daughter of the richest man in England and she is about to leave the only home she's ever known and travel across England to meet her betrothed. He is a man she's never met and her father, also whom she's never met, has arranged this marriage for her.

Axia has been protected all of her life. Her father put her up in a massive castle with high walls and she's never been outside it. He has controlled everything in her life, including removing those deemed untrustworthy and hiring spies to report to him of her daily activities, including her escapades. Axia's only two trusted companions are Tode, a disfigured man who runs the household, and Frances, a distant cousin.

When Jamie Montgomery is hired to escort Axia, his sisters convince him to woo her. Jamie's older brother, Edward, had squandered the family fortune and is now dead, leaving Jamie, his sisters, and his mother in near destitution. The only solution, it seems, is for Jamie to marry a wealthy heiress, and Axia certainly fits that bill. Jamie, however, is an honorable man and has many reservations about this plan but he reluctantly goes along with it.

When Jamie meets Axia and Frances, he mistakes beautiful Frances as the heiress and Axia as the poor cousin. He tries to solicit Axia's help to woo Frances but in a fit of rage Axia thwarts him. They clash again and again throughout the trip but there is also no mistaking their undeniable attraction for each other. Despite their growing love, Axia can't trust Jamie with the truth, but then their world is turned upside down when Frances is kidnapped.

This was such a great story to read. Even after I was done, I had to go back and read through some of my favorite parts and relive the excitement it brought.

My life is so unescapeably miserable untill I read this book. It excited me from the begining to the end. The best ending I could ever wanted in such a story. Put it this way, I want to have a cigaret after I was done. I give this the best standing inovation of all time.
