The Accidental Abduction

Dependable and trustworthy Harold Rayburn is about to be taken for the ride of his life…

Rejected by the girl he intended to marry for being too “boring,” Harry is ready to give up impetuous women for good—until beautiful and fierce Leannah Wakefield barrels into his life.  The wild beauty inadvertently kidnaps him while on a breath-taking carriage ride, which ends with Harry more than ready to take the reins firmly in hand…

Leannah Wakefield would sacrifice everything to protect her family. So when her little sister elopes, Leannah races across London to stop the ill-advised ceremony.  But her breakneck journey is nearly interrupted by a stranger who ignites her desire beyond all reason.  Suddenly, Leannah’s the one contemplating a runaway marriage, one that will unite her with this handsome and mysterious stowaway.

As word of their hurried nuptuals spreads, Leannah and Harry are met with opposition, anger, jealousy, and suspicion.  Can fragile love and unquenchable passion possibly be enough to keep the couple together—especially when both bride and groom have devastating secrets to hide?

Where’s the Amazon Link?

Because of the ongoing attempt by Amazon.com to force publishers and independent authors into an ever-increasing downward price spiral for books, which ultimately will mean fewer authors can afford to continue to write because their incomes will continue to shrink, I have chosen not to offer a direct link to Amazon.com on my site.  If you are a Kindle reader, I encourage you to explore Books-A-Million or All Romance Ebooks which will offer a Kindle friendly option for you.  If you are a paperback reader, please check out IndieBound, which will allow you not only to get your favorite reads, but support your local independent bookstore.
