There's just one obstacle in his path: the lovely Lady Elizabeth Barnes-Finchley, a daring young widow who's pursuing the same goal. When a pistol shot on a moonlit heath brings them together, the rivals agree to a temporary alliance to outwit their mutual enemy. But their secret partnership soon puts both their lives in danger...and falling in love was never part of the plan.
An RWA RITA Award Finalist: Best Historical Romance of the Year
"Five stars! Shelly Thacker is definitely becoming one of my favorite authors. Her novels are thrilling, adventurous, fun, sexy and overall romantic." -BookDivas
"A wild and wonderful ride, filled with adventure, passion and intrigue. Irresistible!" -RT Book Reviews
"This enthralling tale will keep you spellbound from beginning to end!" -Rendezvous
"I don't post many 5 star reviews on books, because in my opinion, they should be reserved for those that are the best of the best and truly move me and stay with me for a long time. They also need to be masterfully written. I gave this book 5 stars easily. I would give it more if I could. Shelly Thacker and her brilliance have done it again." - Goodreads reviewer
"While reading this book, I experienced every emotion: I laughed, I cried, I sighed, I fanned myself, I felt joy and finally contentment. I didn't think Ms. Thacker could write a better book than Escape with a Scoundrel, but she did. Fantastic!" - Goodreads reviewer
"This was such a fabulous read. Nobody does historical romance like Shelly Thacker. I was pulled in from the first page and stayed right there until the last page. Loved it!" - Goodreads reviewer
