Nathan St. James and Sara Winchester were forced to marry to appease a family feud. Then Nathan returned to school and Sara with her parents. Sixteen years later they still have not lived together. But there is a contract still outstanding that needs to be fulfilled.
Nathan writes to her father to expect him to come take her. A few days before his arrival date, she runs away on a visit to her aunt. Now she has returned with her aunt. Nathan knows the only way to get his bride is to kidnap her.
He is in for a surpise. Sara isn't a simpering Regency England miss. She is stubborn, determined, and devoted. As he went to kidnap her he found her sneaking out of her home. She could not be escaping him because she did not know he was coming. What was she doing?
Sara has to rescue her aunt. She has been waiting for her husband, and appealed for his help with her aunt. Now she is determined to rescue her aunt from her own family by herself. She books passage on a ship for them both, then slips out of her house to release her aunt.
While I was working in the bookstore recently, a customer took this book off the shelf and handed it to me. She said it was one of the best books she had ever read. She then went on for another five minutes about how good it was. She also promised to ask me my opinion the next time she was in.
She was right. This book is so much fun. Nathan and Sara are well drawn characters. Sara gives as good as she gets. Nathan cannot understand his bride or himself towards her.
Once going, I finished it in less than a day. (It helped I was sick and on bedrest at the time. Otherwise, I would have been frustrated the times I had to put it down.) It's a charmer.
