Her betrothed has gone missing and the only one who can help her
find him is the one man to whom she could give heart. . .
After patiently waiting six years for her bridegroom, Miss Lucy
Beresford finally comes to London to force him to the altar. But
when she arrives, her prospective husband is nowhere to be found.
Lucy then enlists the services of her betrothed’s closest friend,
Lord Montague, to help find her missing fiancé.
Monty doesn’t like to let on how worried he is about his absent
friend, especially to the man’s fragile fiancée. Nevertheless, he
consents to help the lady in her quest to find the man she’s
betrothed to. The more Monty’s with the lady, the more he realizes
his friend was a fool not to marry her, and the more he realizes the
shy persona Miss Lucy Beresford reveals to others conceals a woman
of vast appeal.
Their search—and the subsequent investigation which takes them
across England and to the highest levels of government—places them
in danger and makes Monty vow to do everything in his power to
protect his friend’s future wife.
