Miss Annie Andrews is finally free to marry the man she loves. With her overprotective sister out of the country on her honeymoon, nothing can prevent her flight to Gretna Green--nothing, that is, but an abduction by the wrong gentleman.

When Jordan Holloway, the Earl of Ashbourne, promised to look after his best friend's sister-in-law, he didn't realize she would prove so difficult. But when he spirits her away to his country house to prevent her elopement, he discovers that the tempting beauty knows how to put up a fight. To make matters worse, he's stuck playing the role of honorable protector...when what he really wants is to run away with her himself.

Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* If there is one thing for sure in life, it's that the moment Annie Andrews is doing something extremely embarrassing, Jordan Holloway, Earl of Ashbourne, will be there to mock her. Case in point: Annie had almost finished scrambling up the shrubbery outside Arthur Eggleston's home when who should suddenly appear but Jordan? If Annie could just figure out a way to get Jordan out of her hair, she knows she can elevate Arthur to matrimonial standards. What Annie doesn't know is that her sister, Lily, has made Jordan promise that he will stop Annie from eloping again with Arthur. Jordan is positive that he can keep Annie and Arthur apart for two weeks until Lily returns from her own honeymoon. What Jordan never expects is that he just may be tempted to run away with the delightfully unconventional Annie himself. A perfectly matched pair of protagonists engages in a wonderfully amusing and deliciously sensual battle of wits in Bowman's (Secrets of a Wedding Night, 2012) second stellar Regency-set romance, and the author's flair for mixing red-hot passion and captivating characters makes her an excellent suggestion for fans of Sabrina Jeffries' and Nicole Jordan's historical romances.--Charles, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"
