An Unwilling Bride

Front Cover
Zebra Books, 2000 - Fiction - 351 pages
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jo Beverley has won the hearts of readers everywhere with her historical romances set in the Georgian and Regency periods. Following the highly-acclaimed An Arranged Marriage, "An Unwilling Bride" is the second book in Beverley's hugely successful "Company of Rogues" series to be reissued and re-packaged to reach her ever-growing circle of fans.

"An Unwilling Bride" is a delightful classic, hailed by Romantic Times as the "splendid love story of a young miss forced to wed a charming rake....A veritable feast of delight for the true connoisseur". The heroine, Beth Armitage, is a woman content with her life. Her work as a teacher gives her the independence she always craved and a life free from the shackles of matrimony. Yet after a harrowing meeting with the Duke of Belcraven, Beth finds herself caught in a web of aristocratic power -- and engaged to marry his rakish heir, Lucien de Vaux, Marquess of Arden. She is determined to despise her betrothed, but when Arden decides to seduce her, she needs all of her strength to keep from surrendering her heart.
