"Kasey Michaels' best work to date"
Feeling pity when Viscount Willoughby Rutland and his
wife Abby saw the innocent looking Regina Bliss begging for
spare change outside the theater, they hired her as a
maid. When Earl Bradley James sees Regina working for the
Rutlands, he asks her what brought her to such a crisis?
Regina, an actress, relates her tale of woe, but Bradley
does not believe her. He makes a few inquiries and draws
the attention of the wrong people. Soon three aristocrats
abduct Bradley and toss him into the Thames to die. He
survives and devises an ingenious plan to flush out the
culprits with Regina's assistance as she too has a score to
settle with these thugs. As they work together to catch a
killer, they fall in love, but a relationship will have to
wait to see if they survive their endeavor.
Adored by readers for her Regency romances, Kasey
Michaels provides her audience with her best work to date
in THEN COMES MARRIAGE. The relationship between the lead
couple is hilarious due to their witty repartee that
camouflages their true feelings for one another. Also
amusing is the straight-laced Brady takes on the persona of
Gawain Caradoc, a frivolous dandy so that he can move
freely among the Ton. This is more than just a strong
regency; this tale is an engaging historical romance that
should be on everyone's short list.
