To ruin a man's life once takes a regrettable mistake. To do so twice takes a woman like Julianne Baxter.
Eleven months ago, Julianne's statement to the authorities wrongly implicated Patrick, the new Earl of Haversham, in his older brother's death. The chit is as much trouble as her red hair suggests, and just as captivating. Now she has impetuously tracked him to the wilds of Scotland, insisting that he return home to face a murder charge and save his family from ruin. A clandestine wedding may be the only way to save her reputation - and his neck from the hangman's noose.
Julianne has no objection to the match. More and more she's convinced of Patrick's innocence, though when it comes to igniting her passions, the man is all too guilty. And if they can only clear his name, a marriage made in haste could bring about the most extraordinary pleasure....

I love the heroine in this book. She goes against everything socially important to right a wrong she has done and at the cost of her own reputation and good name. She is also fiercely loyal and goes to extreme extents to clear the man's name she has wronged. The hero is also a very likable character. He is an honorable man with a soft heart and gentle personality. The story began as interesting and got REALLY exciting about 2/3rds into the book. I like suspense and that certainly got worked into the story nicely. But the best part was the ending. I never suspected who the villain was. It’s a book worth the credit.
