First Book Stop


Nathaniel Spencer, the Fourteenth Duke of Kirkbourne wakes up with an almighty hangover and a wager note in his pocket stating he has agreed to marry the Earl of Brackingham’s daughter. And he can’t even remember ever meeting the chit. Clearly his drinking has got out of hand.

Lady Sarah Steele is horrified when her father announces that the Duke of Kirkbourne has agreed to marry her and even more horrified that her father wagered her hand in a game of cards. Not only that, but the earl has not told the duke of the riding accident that left Sarah paralysed when she was sixteen. But he’s dying and she knows he wants to see her settled before the inevitable happens.

Despite Nate’s drinking and Sarah’s possible complicity in the earl’s plan, they agree to marry. But when accidents start to happen, the newly-weds must deal not only with the fact they are practically strangers, but they must find out who is trying to kill one or both of them. Nate’s drink problem and Sarah’s disability are only a couple of the hurdles they must face to find lasting love.

A review Through Lisa's Eyes:
I'm easy since I love the historical Romance & Fiction genre. However when reviewing not that easy. What I liked about Ms. Taylor's work is her uniqueness.
Usually when  there is a heroine with a limitation she has to prove herself worthy of the hero's attention before his sees her worth. Nathaniel Spencer was a true man of honor. He'd honor his word and protect his own, no matter if it was a wife acquired through dubious means.
Lady Sarah lives up to the times expectations of a how a woman should behave no matter what. Her husband will learn she hasn't a self-pitying bone in her body.



Em was born and brought up in the Central Belt of Scotland and still lives there. She was told as a child she had an over active imagination--as if that is a bad thing. She's traded her dreams of owning her own island, just like George in the Famous Five to hoping to meet her own Mr Darcy one day. But her imagination remains the same.
