readers read my The Wedding Bargain, Brazen Brides #2,
they begged for more stories of the Birmingham brothers, the
richest family in England. So I wrote a short novella titled
Lady Sophia's Rescue (no longer available), featuring
William Birmingham. Then, many, many readers loved that
story but asked that I turn it into a full-length book. Now
that novella is a full-length novel, with an entirely
different middle and ending. Much of the beginning of this
runaway bride story is the same.
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?
