The pleasure of your company is requested at thewedding of Miss Eliza Cynster . . . but not until she's rescued from a daring abduction by the most unexpected of heroes

Brazenly kidnapped from her sister Heather's engagement ball, Eliza Cynster is spirited north to Edinburgh. Desperate and deter-mined to escape, she seizes upon the first possible champion who happens along-- gentleman scholar Jeremy Carling.

Villains and rescues are a far cry from Jeremy's expertise, yet he cannot abandon a damsel in distress. But danger lurks and hurdles abound in their race to escape the mysterious laird, until a final confrontation on a windswept cliff reveals what their future life could hold--if both are bold enough to seize and own the unexpected love they now share.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-09-23)

Having failed to kidnap and marry Heather Cynster (Viscount Breckenridge to the Rescue), a mysterious Scottish laird tries for Cynster sister number two. Considered by most in her acquaintance to be "meek, mild, and helpless", 24-year-old Eliza may be a better wife for the laird, who enlists the inexorable Scrope to bring her to Edinburgh. In an effort to save herself, Eliza attracts the attention of the man in the passing curricle, none other than absent-minded scholar Jeremy Carling.

But Jeremy is more than the sum of his parts and has learned something about subterfuge from his brother-in-law's Bastion Club cronies. He will rescue Eliza Cynster, but at what cost to them both? Verdict Laurens keeps her long-running series fresh by focusing on the younger members of the clan. Both Eliza and Jeremy here discover hidden depths that alter them in ways they could not have imagined. The chase goes on a bit long, with every conceivable Scottish landscape traversed, but our protagonists' resourcefulness, especially their facility with maps, is something to admire. Does the laird meet his final reward on the craggy cliffs of his homeland, or could he be Laurens's next hero? Cynsters rule and readers triumph.

Book description

The pleasure of your company is requested at the wedding of Miss Eliza Cynster... but not until she’s rescued from a daring abduction by the most unexpected of heroes!

Brazenly kidnapped from her sister Heather’s engagement ball, Eliza Cynster is spirited north to Edinburgh. Desperate and determined to escape, she seizes upon the first possible champion who happens along— gentleman scholar Jeremy Carling.

Villains and rescues are a far cry from Jeremy’s expertise, yet he cannot abandon a damsel in distress. But danger lurks and hurdles abound in their race to escape the mysterious laird, until a final confrontation on a windswept cliff reveals what their future life could hold— if both are bold enough to capture and own the unexpected love they now share.
