Refusing to be a sacrificial lamb on the altar of matrimony to satisfy her brother's debts, this determined lady will do everything in her power t to gain a proposal. After all, she has plans of her own and they don't involve matrimony. The unwilling groom Kwn as Mad Moreton to everyone in Yorkshire, Heath lives a life as untamed and wild as the moors. After all, he has a family reputation to live down. The bad blood that runs in his veins is more than eugh reason to swear off matrimony. Not even the outspoken, infuriating Lady Portia will succeed in trapping him. Bright eyes and tempting smile aside, he will resist the chit even if it kills him.

A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times bestselling author of Avon historical romances and the Firelight series. She now lives in Houston with her family.
