Forget Me Not
Sold for a title by her social climbing father, Lydia has one chance to run away with love.
Lydia Covington has adored Irishman Brian Donnelly for years, but he is a retired soldier with no connections—hardly a suitable choice for the daughter of Britain's next Prime Minister. To make matters worse, she is engaged to the slovenly Viscount Northbridge, a man she can barely tolerate let alone love.
Brian vowed long ago to be satisfied in a life without love. Orphaned at the age of two, he knows well how fragile life can be. However, four years ago he took one glance at the beautiful Lydia, and the one thing he swore would never happen did—he fell hopelessly in love.
After witnessing a brutal murder, Lydia and Brian are kidnapped and whisked to the north of England by crime lord Felix Keith. Narrowly escaping certain death, the two race through the countryside, evading ruthless pursuers and untangling a web of lies and deception.
Despite Brian's attraction, his goal is focused—to see Lydia safely home to her father and betrothed. She, however, is only too content to stay lost, tripping through the countryside with her handsome Irish protector. As their bond grows, can Lydia convince this wounded soul to take the ultimate chance on love before it's too late? Or will Brian retreat and close his heart to the one woman who could change his life forever?
