Talk about bad luck--Cathryn Blankenship had plenty of it--some of it her own doing. She was as stubborn as they come and just as naive!

When her father tried to send her to England she wanted none of it and attempted to escape--one big handsome problem. Her father had someone watching her like a hawk until she was settled in her grandparents house in England. She was brought up in the colonies and really was not prepared for what the people were like there! Needless to say she kind of fell head over heels with her escort---he had other ideas.

She ended up abducted by the man her grandparents wanted her to marry--ended up marrying her heart throbs best friend--he died and she headed back to the colonies to her brother since her father had died in the interim. She had twins! Of course with the war with Britain going on in the colonies everyone wanted her back in England-----eventually that is where she ended up.

If you truly like historical romances this one will keep you on your toes!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Cathryn Blankenship has no desire for a season in London! Why on earth would her father want her to leave her home in Charles Town? Upon Cathryn’s steadfast refusal, Governor Blankenship is forced to assign a young lieutenant to watch over Cathryn on the journey and ensure his daughter’s appearance in London. Cathryn finds Lieutenant Jake Pennington the most aggravating, maddening man she has ever met...a man Cathryn soon admits she is in no hurry to see leave.

But fate has other plans for her in a world she is ill prepared to enter. She descends into a place where love and betrayal go hand and hand, where greed and treachery are second nature, but moreover the threat her father believes he has sent her is awaiting her arrival. When fate tears her apart from her Lieutenant, Cathryn finds herself desolate and alone. Soon, Cathryn makes fateful decisions that will send her back to her home.

A home far different than the one she left. A war rages. Soon, she discovers her life is in danger and the only one that can save her is the one who left her heartbroken.
