Rushed to the Altar

From New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather comes the first of a wonderful new trilogy, The Blackwater Brides, set in the sensually im-proper Georgian period, in which three noble brothers discover they will be forced to find brides under highly unusual circumstances. Jasper Sullivan, Earl of Blackwater, needs a prostitute. Not in the usual way, however. His wealthy uncle's will promises to divide his huge fortune among his nephews if each rescues a fallen woman . . . by marrying her! And since Jasper's estates were already mortgaged to the hilt before he inherited them, when he catches a pretty young prostitute trying to pick his pocket, he immediately makes his proposal. Clarissa Astley is not at all what Jasper believes. The orphaned daughter of a prosperous merchant, she is searching the seedier districts of London for her young brother, abducted by their evil guardian, who wants the little boy's inheritance. But she needs powerful help, and the darkly handsome Earl of Blackwater is certainly that. So she pretends to be exactly what he assumed-- a risky charade for an innocent virgin. But when passion flares between Jasper and Clarissa, the deception becomes even more difficult to handle. . . .
Product Details


Learning that he must marry a "woman in need of salvation" in order to inherit a third of his uncle's vast fortune, the debt-ridden Earl of Blackwater has little choice but to find a prostitute and rescue her. But the gently bred Clarissa Astley he encounters in Covent Garden as she searches for her kidnapped young brother is not the soiled dove he mistakes her for-an error that Clarissa desperately turns to her advantage, with results that surprise them both. Verdict Spirited, a trifle bawdy, and occasionally dark, this saucy Georgian escapade puts a new twist on the classic marry-to-inherit plot pattern, highlights a few less savory aspects of the period, and launches Feather's new trilogy with flair. Feather (A Husband's Wicked Ways) lives in Maryland. [Ebook ISBN 978-1-4391-5549-3.] Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
