The sample pages of Oh What a (Wedding) Night may appear familiar. That’s because they appeared in an earlier novella titled Lady Sophia’s Rescue (no longer available). At readers’ request, the story has been turned into a full-length novel with a completely different middle and ending.
As Lady Sophia Beresford (recently Lady Finkel) passes through the gates of her new bridegroom’s country estate and he begins to whisper in her ear of the delights that await her in his bed, Lady Sophia realizes she has made a most dreadful mistake. There’s only one thing to do. She must bolt.
The bride-on-the-run is rescued by the exceedingly handsome William Birmingham who thinks she’s a woman named Isadore, and though he’s the richest man in England, she mistakes him for a common (but well-to-do) criminal. Since she’d rather be dead than wed to Finkel, Sophia pretends to be Isadore and take her chances with the provocative Mr. Birmingham. But how could she have known that her ruse would bring the gallant Mr. Birmingham into such peril from the wicked man she married? And how could she have known her enigmatic rescuer would ignite passions she’d never known she possessed?

What woman would dare make her home at eerie Marshbanks Abbey, perched on a stony hill in remote Northumbria? It is said its owner, the brilliant botanist, Lord Stacks, killed his beautiful bride there ten years earlier.
Unaware of the tales of Lord Stacks’ wickedness, Freddie Lambeth comes to live with her guardian, and through his caring blossoms from a plain, shabbily dressed girl to a lovely young woman. Freddie and Lord Stacks come to need each other as his flowers need sunshine, but Stacks cannot allow himself to love her. His own wickedness has destroyed any chance for happiness.
Was he in a hurry to be rid of her? At least he wanted a sensational mate for her. There was only one mate for her, she thought morosely. And he would be sensational. She closed her eyes and thought of being enfolded in Lord Stack’s strong embrace, of resting her face against his chest, of lifting her lips to his. She grew hot as she imagined what it would feel like to have his mouth on hers, his tongue parting her lips. A wet heat centered between her legs. Her thoughts drifted even further away. She thought of lying with him, wet flesh against wet flesh. She could almost feel his mouth close around one breast.
“You do not look happy,” he said.
She drew a deep breath and faced him. “It seems my company grows tedious for you. You are in so great a haste to marry me off, to be rid of me.”
He reached out and touched a finger to her cheek. “I attempt to be selfless, Miss Lambeth. I want what is best for you. For myself, I would have you at Marshbanks Abbey until the end of my days.”
Until the end of his days. If only. . . He studied her face for a moment. “I believe the prospect does not offend you.”
“You must believe me when I tell you I’ve never been happier than in these past few months at the abbey.” She had wanted to say these past few months with you.
“Then your life must have been singularly uneventful before.”
She smiled. “That, too.”
He took a sip of wine, peering at her over the rim of his glass. “Do you miss your father?”
She gathered a handful of soft fabric from her skirt into her hand. “To be honest, no.”
His brows lowered. “How can that be? You seem to worry over every creature. You are so very caring.”
“The exact word I would use to describe you, my lord. However, caring is not a word I would use to describe my father, although he did care very much for my mother. Unfortunately, he held me responsible for taking her from him.”
“But that’s ridiculous! You didn’t ask to be born!”
“He did not see it that way.”
Stacks watched the leaves of the tree shimmer in the breeze and did not speak for a moment. “So that explains why your education in the feminine arts was so neglected.”
She nodded. “You have shown me more love in these past few months than I received in an entire lifetime.” She felt her cheeks growing hot. Why had she used the word love? She had not meant to burden him with details of her unhappy life, but she felt incredibly open whenever she was with him. “That is why I’ve been so happy here, why I am in no hurry to leave the walls of Marshbanks Abbey.”
He reached out and took her hand. “You have a home here for as long as you want.”
She looked up at him, her eyes swimming in pools of unshed tears.
Lord Stacks was moving to her. She felt his arms close around her. She felt his warm breath on her cheek, and she lif

ADD TO GOODREADS
In the first book of her dazzling new series, bestselling author Ella Quinn introduces the soon-to-be Earl and Countess of Worthington–lovers who have more in common than they yet know. The future promises to be far from boring…
Lady Grace Carpenter is ready to seize the day–or rather, the night–with the most compelling man she’s ever known. Marriage would mean losing guardianship of her beloved siblings, and surely no sane gentleman will take on seven children not his own. But if she can have one anonymous tryst with Mattheus, Earl of Worthington, Grace will be content to live out the rest of her life as a spinster.
Matt had almost given up hope of finding a wife who could engage his mind as well as his body. And now this sensual, intelligent woman is offering herself to him. What could be more perfect? Except that after one wanton night, the mysterious Grace refuses to have anything to do with him. Amid the distractions of the Season he must convince her, one delicious encounter at a time, that no obstacle–or family–is too much for a man who’s discovered his heart’s desire…
Meet The Worthingtons:
Ok, I’ll be the first to admit that this series has a lot of people in it. So I thought I’d give you a chance to get to know them. The series begins with Three Weeks to Wed. This is Matt and Grace’s book.
Mattheus, Earl of Worthington – Matt is in his early thirties and has spent most of it playing around, except when he is acting more like a father to his four step-sisters, ranging in age from eight to eighteen, than their father ever did. However as the book opens, his mind has turned toward marriage.
Lady Grace Carpenter – When she was barely twenty-one, Grace’s mother dies in child birth. Her father died eight months prior. Her mother has one last wish, to keep all the children together, and Grace promises she will. Unfortunately, none of her uncles on her father’s side think she is capable of raising seven children; the youngest still in leading-strings. But Grace prevails, and even though it means she’ll never marry, she is determined to raise all the children.
Patience, the Dowager Lady Worthington – Patience was married to Matt’s father at the tender age of sixteen. She expected a grand love, but wasn’t to be. The former Lord Worthington never stopped loving his first wife. Since her year of mourning ended, she has become a leader in the ton.
The Children: From eldest to youngest.
Lady Charlotte Carpenter and Lady Louisa Vivers – Charlotte and Louisa are both eighteen and ready to make their come outs.
Charles, Earl of Stanwood – Charlie is Grace’s brother. He is sixteen and attending Eton, but already takes his role as head of the Carpenter family seriously.
Lady Augusta Vivers – At fifteen, she is still in the schoolroom and is not sure she really does want to come out. Languages are much more interesting to her.
Walter Carpenter – Walter, age fourteen, is more than ready to join his brother at Eton. He is interested in horses, boxing, and has lately found a passion for languages. Augusta has become a welcome friend.
Ladies Alice and Eleanor Carpenter and Lady Madeline Vivers – Alice, Eleanor, and Madeline are all twelve and very silly. They have also become inseparable. Matt is dreading the day they make their come out.
Philip Carpenter – At age eight, Philip is missing that fact that his father is no longer around. Despite their age difference, he and Walter are very close.
Lady Theodora Vivers – Theo, eight going on eighteen, was the baby of the Viver’s family until they joined with the Carpenter brood. Her mother swears she earned her name with Theo. She has also become great friends with Mary.
Lady Mary Carpenter – Even at the young age of five, Mary has shown remarkable empathy for others around her. It will be interesting to see what life brings.
Duke and Daisy are both Great Danes. At age three, Duke is a well behaved gentleman. Daisy, on the other hand, is not quite a year and a half and not at all well behaved.
