Publisher’s Description:

A fiercely loyal lady, along with her brooding duke come head-to-head in a battle of wills! An unforgettable Regency romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Joanne Wadsworth.

He must steal a lady…then steal her love.

Desiring a man and never being noticed as more than his best friend's little sister has Lady Ellie Trentbury finally consigning herself to the truth. She must move on, and preferably with a man who lives far away from her home in London where she need never be reminded of the duke who stole her heart. An elopement with an honorable American shipping merchant sounds perfect.

The Duke of Ashten has no choice but to bound into his best friend's carriage when he discovers little Ellie is inside and intent on eloping with a man to Gretna Green who she barely knows. He can't allow her to make such a terrible mistake, yet convincing her might mean giving into his desire for the golden-eyed enchantress who has followed him around since he was a lad.

Her pouty lips and bountiful charms can no longer be ignored, only convincing her of the truth of his intentions will mean jeopardizing both his sanity and a lifelong friendship as well.

My Thoughts:

This is book #1 in Joanne Wadsworth’s new series”Regency Brides”

This tale of a tag along little sister all grown up and her brother’s best friend is an unforgettable story of what is thought to be unrequited love on both the hero and heroines parts.

Ellie has loved Ashten as long as she can remember. Ashten has long since forgotten about how he thought of Ellie as his friends pesky little sister. She has grown into a beautiful and very desirable young woman. Now he must stop her from making a grave error. She is running away to marry a man she barely knows. Abducting her on her way to Gretna Green is the only way Ashten sees to stop her from making the biggest mistake of her life. After all he wants her for his own even if he will never admit it.

I liked this book but it is not the best I have read by this author.
I gave this tale 4 of 5 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 2 of 5 flames. This is an essentially sweet/ clean traditional regency romance.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

SYNOPSIS:

Some men conform to societal expectations, but not the Gentlemen of Intrigue. They operate in the shadows on the fringes of polite society. They don’t follow rules; they break them-especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

With Uncle Charles away, the rakes are out to play . . .
Every rakehell in London seems to believe Regina Darlington is ripe for seduction without a protector at her side. They are mistaken. She is well equipped to defend her virtue using an ancient warrior art she learned from her uncle. Protecting her heart is another matter. When a down-and-out thief knocks himself unconscious robbing her uncle’s town house, Regina takes pity on him and discovers she has no defenses against his charms, or a marriage of convenience that spoils her plans.

The price for his redemption is one more sin . . . 
American scoundrel Xavier Vistoire gambled with the wrong man and lost his freedom. Now he has a chance to return home and atone for past mistakes, but first he must break into an earl’s house and steal a map. After he surprises a goddess during her bath and falls down the stairs trying to escape her rabid poodle, he wakes to find he has a new jailer–one who quickly captures his heart. And he’ll risk everything to protect his reluctant bride from an enemy willing to kill for what he wants.

ABOUT CANADIAN ROMANCE AUTHOR B.J. SCOTT:

THERE ARE THREE AUTHORS WITH THE SAME NAME, B.J. Scott, SELLING BOOKS ON AMAZON.

She has thirteen books currently published. Eight Scottish Romances, three Highland Time Travel. and am part of 2 multi-author boxed sets and more coming soon. Please use the author link on any of my book pages and not a general author search if looking for my books.

Checking the author bio and other books on an author’s site also give insight as to what type of books they write; MY BIO With a passion for historical romance, history in general, and anything Celtic, B.J. always has an exciting work in progress.

Each story offers a blend of romance, adventure, suspense, and, where appropriate, a dab of comic relief. Carefully researched historical facts are woven into each manuscript, providing a backdrop from which steamy romance, gripping plots, and vivid characters–dashing alpha heroes and resourceful, beguiling heroines you can’t help but admire–spring to life.

A PAN member of RWA, World Romance Writers, and Savvy Authors, B.J. also writes contemporary, paranormal, time travel, and romantic suspense.C.S. Lewis first captivated B. J.’s imagination in the fourth grade, and her desire to write sprang from there. Following a career in nursing and child and youth work, B.J. married her knight-in-shining-armor, and he whisked her away to his castle by the sea.

In reality, they share their century-old home in a small Canadian town on the shore of Lake Erie with their dogs and a cat. When she is not working at her childcare job, on her small business, or writing, you will find her reading, camping, or antique hunting.
