Description from Amazon:
From handsome hostage . . .
When Eva de Courtney kidnaps Godric Fleming, her only plan is to stop the irritating earl from persecuting her beloved brother. But once she has the intriguing rogue in the confines of her carriage, she longs to taste the passion she senses simmering beneath his rugged exterior. Her forbidden plan is foiled, however, when Godric turns the tables, taking her hostage instead—and demanding they marry at once . . .
To unexpected suitor . . .
The last thing Godric wants to do is make the fiery, impulsive Eva his wife, despite her delectable mouth and alluring innocence. He knows from experience that nothing is forever, not even love. But honor demands he do right by the lady, no matter how stubbornly Eva tries to hold on to her independence. And while the road to the Scottish border is beset with danger, Godric’s greatest challenge is to keep his hands—and his heart—from his captivating bride-to-be . . .
There is so much more to this book than the description blurb indicates. In the beginning Eva is very whiny and naïve and so over-the-top that I disliked her, but she becomes more mature as the book goes on. Godric is our typical handsome hero who shows he is capable of being strong as well as kind. The plot starts out being rather tame and then all kinds of action takes over. So there are some surprises as well as twists. I highly recommend this book as well as others by Minerva Spencer.
