"A warm and toasty romance"
In 1816 England, American visitor Quinn Peverill misses
the freedom of her native Baltimore. Bored with societal
rules and not knowing most of them, Quinn goes about London
unescorted while her father conducts business. At about
the same time, Lord Marcus Northrup takes on the Robin Hood
mantle of the Saint of the Seven Dials from his recently
married friend when he observes Quinn disguised as a lad
trying to help a young pickpocket.
Not expecting to see one another ever again, Marcus and
Quinn are caught in a situation that requires they marry.
Neither one wants to wed a stranger, but society dictates
they must to avoid a scandal. Thus the couple get
hitched. As they become acquainted with one another they
argue and fight until love enters the relationship.
Brenda Hiatt is highly regarded by Regency romance
readers for her energizing tales starring warm characters.
Her latest novel, THE REBELLIOUS BRIDE, is a fun sequel to
ROGUE'S HONOR. Though the bickering between the lead
protagonists is amusing it also slows down the action.
Still, readers will find the independent fiery Quinn a
charmer and Marcus a hero while simply enjoying the latest
Saint tale and vowing they want more such stories.
