Read Book 2 in Mary Lancaster's latest hit series, The Unmarriageable Series! 

Lady Cecily, a daughter of a duke, has a habit of getting into trouble. Perhaps it’s her natural curiosity or maybe, she likes excitement, especially where the notorious Lord Verne is concerned. When she’s mistaken for a hussy at the Hart Inn—by every fault of her own—staring at the handsome lord through a partially opened door in a private parlor and watching him out of her chamber window in the middle of the night—is it any surprise he abducts her? Of course, she foolishly imagines her rank and her identity are enough to protect her. 

But her family name doesn't change Verne's mind, for he is still fascinated by Cecily. 

With her reputation hanging by a thread after spending the night in Verne's house, she's forced to make a fateful decision, face the consequences of her actions, which could mean utter ruin for her and her family, or agree to a fake engagement with the rakish lord. 

Lord Verne has a tragic past and his own dark secrets to contend with, making him a bad match for the vivacious Cecily and her powerful family. But once the news of their "engagement" gets out, neither one of them is in a hurry to call it off. 

Will they find their happily ever after with each other? Or will Verne's sinister past destroy everything?

Lady Cecily Moore is a curious young woman and that is always landing her in trouble.  This time it could be truly dangerous .
Lord Patrick Verne has a very sinister reputation.  People believe he has got away with murder.  That reputation helps in the work he has taken on.  So many enemies about , it's best to suspect everyone. 
A lovely mystery and adventure for our outspoken and brave characters to undertake. This is part of a series but easily read on it's own. 
An action packed page turner.  I loved every page and can't wait for the next one. 


Mary Lancaster's first love was historical fiction. Since then she has grown to love coffee, chocolate, red wine and black and white films - simultaneously where possible. She hates housework.

As a direct consequence of the first love, she studied history at St. Andrews University, after which she worked variously as editorial assistant, researcher and librarian. Although she has always written stories for her own entertainment, she began to make serious efforts toward publication in order to distract herself from a job she disliked. She now writes full time at her seaside home in Scotland, which she shares with her husband and three children.
