Publisher's Summary

Introducing the Bow Street Bachelors - men who work undercover for London’s first official police force - and the women they serve to protect...and wed?

Will a false marriage...

Shipping heiress Georgiana Caversteed is done with men who covet her purse more than her person. Even worse than the ton’s lecherous fortune hunters, however, is the cruel cousin determined to force Georgie into marriage. If only she could find a way to be...widowed? Georgie hatches a madcap scheme to wed a condemned criminal before he’s set to be executed. All she has to do is find an eligible bachelor in prison to marry her, and she’ll be free. What could possibly go wrong?

...Lead to true and lasting love?

Benedict William Henry Wylde, scapegrace second son of the late Earl of Morcott and well-known rake, is in Newgate prison undercover, working for Bow Street. Georgie doesn’t realize who he is when she marries him - and she most certainly never expects to bump into her very-much-alive, and very handsome, husband of convenience at a society gathering weeks later. Soon Wylde finds himself courting his own wife, hoping to win her heart since he already has her hand. But how can this seductive rogue convince brazen, beautiful Georgie that he wants to be together...until actual death do they part?

Exciting Story /Great Characters

This is a new author and I am glad I gave the book a try. I was so rewarded.
The story was interesting. The way the H/H met and married was a new one...and in keeping with a smart heroine. I liked this, as she did what needed to be done and nothing seemed to be out of character. The hero is wonderful, and not a rich lord, as is the "standard". He is also not a fortune hunter, but a man with a real job, just trying to make a life for himself. I really liked him, and not just for how he looks. Both of them are likable and you want the best for them....and they get it.
The story has complexity and adventure, so it keeps your interest. The relationship develops and I enjoy when you travel along, learning and advancing with the characters. The end is the only issue, as it wraps up a little too conveniently, but it's at the very end, so does not bother me.
The narration is great and I bought it as she is one of my favorites. Good job and the story gives her a lot to work with as there are several accents to master.
The hero has 2 friends that are funny and loyal. The first books sets up for the next 2 . I can hardly wait! Looking forward to more from this author.
