I loved it,
This review is from: The Wedding Escape (Mass Market Paperback)
Set in England, 1883. Amelia Belford was an American heiress. Her parents arranged for her to marry Lord Whitcliffe. They wanted his title and he wanted their fortune. However, Amelia wanted none of it! Amelia and Whitcliffe found each other to be disgusting. Only minutes before she was to march down the aisle, Amelia leaped out of a church window and into the coach of Jack Kent.
Jack Kent was a seafaring Scotsman who was only in town long enough to see his family and then take off again. The damsel in distress put a chink in his plans but he felt honor bound to help her out of her mess. Jack planned to keep his family OUT of it though. He would deal with it himself. Problem was his family was a lot like his servants, most wee thieves and orphans hired right out of prison and put to work. So of course they would stick their fingers into the mix. In addition, Jack was having trouble with his ships. A saboteur was at work and Jack needed to capture him before he lost his business.
***** Author Karyn Monk is a master at turning madness, mayhem, and chaos into an exciting story that readers are unable to put down. I read only for a few minutes and was surprised to look at the clock and find out that hours had flown by. Exciting story from an amazing author. *****
