About the Book

He believes love is an unattainable goal. She is facing a marriage without it. But when their paths cross in a mud-drenched alley, both discover something neither thought possible—hope.

Four years ago, Lord Michael Ashton stood at a crossroads in Gretna Green, abandoned, penniless, and determined neither would happen again. The third son of the Duke of Kennet, Michael left his family for a life in the darkest streets of London. Now his father has delivered an ultimatum, and Michael faces a steep climb out of the gutter.

Lady Clara Durham struggles to find her place in Society as well. She is too round and too smart to please most aristocratic gentlemen, and far too quick with her tongue. But with her father’s health declining, Clara agrees to marry the Duke of Wykeham, a prickly man with ulterior motives.

Everything shifts, however, when Clara’s kitten disappears down an alley. Clara darts after her, tripping headlong into a mudpuddle behind the Kennet stables. When Michael helps her up, he becomes fascinated by this woman who loves horses, talks about hunting with a falcon, and is more interested in finding her cat than cleaning off the mud.

The sparks that fly between them leave both determined to help each other out. But their struggle to make new places for themselves in London’s Society explodes into a conflict between three powerful families that results in a horse race with their future at stake and a duel that could destroy them both.

About the Author
Abigail Bridges

Abigail Bridges wrote her first historical romance, titled The Belle of the Ball, when she was thirteen. It was, of course, horrid. But it firmly established her love of all things Regency, a mild obsession with Georgette Heyer, and a determination to become a writer. After a master’s degree in English and years of being paid to write and edit other types of material, she has returned to her first love. She is busily binge-reading all her favorite authors, resuming her study of the history and culture of the Regency era, and plotting like a madwoman. She does all this in a small cottage near Birmingham, Alabama.
