The Fugitive Heiress
Fleeing a proposal and in search of a fortune, one headstrong young lady moves to London to play the high-stakes game of love
Catheryn Westering has no intention of marrying her respectable but boring cousin,, Edmund Caston, and her aunt and uncle have no intention of giving her access to her newly discovered fortune. Daringly, she rushes to London to appeal to her distant, very attractive kinsman, the Earl of Dambroke, for help. Before Dambroke knows it, she’s become an essential part of his household: an eager participant in the London social whirl; a protégée of his mother; a confidante to his spoilt sister and his mischievous younger brother; and a thorn in the masterful Earl’s side. But London is a dangerous place, and although Dambroke frequently objects to Catheryn’s “interference” in his family and social affairs, is it possible that, beneath his exasperation, much warmer feelings for Catheryn have already ignited?
