Book description
The Marquis of Falcon needed a wife in a hurry. The solution seemed simple: marry the daughter of his fabulously wealthy country neighbor, the Earl of Warnborough. Then a misunderstanding saw him married to the wrong daughter, but the right wife--and a very unusual wife indeed, as he was to learn on his wedding night....
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

When the imperious Alston, Marquis of Falcon cynically announces that he is interested in marrying his daughter in order to gain a Royal appointment, the Earl of Warnborough is thoroughly pleased. There would be many benefits to being part of his far richer neighbor's family and estates! But the beautiful Mirabel is already betrothed and so is Deirdre, albeit secretly, which leaves only Elmina, the youngest and the Cinderella of the Warne family. Nevertheless, they are all shocked when she shyly says that she will be happy to marry the dashing Marquis. But not as stunned as her new husband when she repels his wedding night advances with an expert Karate move! Self-educated and schooled in the martial and equine arts, Elmina blossoms inwardly and outwardly with an unusual allure of her own. And she prays that her handsome new husband will come to love her for herself. But, when she is kidnapped by murderous horse thieves, it seems that she will die without knowing the love she yearns for.… (more)
