A bride wasnA??t in his plans . . . The last thing Marcus, the Duke of Autenberry, expects to see after sleeping off a nightA??s drunken shenanigans is a woman being auctioned in the village square. Before he can think about the ramifications, he buys her, thinking heA??s winning the girl her freedom. Instead, he discovers heA??s bought a wife. A duke wasnA??t in hers . . . Alyse Bell is almost rid of the shackles that bound her in a name-only marriage, but the day her friend promised to purchase her in a wife auction, he vanishes, leaving her to face a mob of unsavory bachelors intent on owning her body and soul. But the appearance of a wicked, wealthy stranger changes her path forever. The road to ruin . . . Marcus doesnA??t know what to do with the impertinent chit who clearly isnA??t duchess material! Insisting their marriage isnA??t legitimate, they leave for his estate in Scotland, hoping to devise a plan to get rid of each other. However, on a journey fraught with misadventure, their attraction grows and Marcus realizes heA??ll do anything to keep this fiery woman for his own.

Professional reviews

"In a Regency romance full of misadventure, Marcus, Duke of Autenberry, unwittingly purchases Alyse Bell to be his wife at a Scottish village auction. Artfully voicing the people the couple encounter as they travel through Scotland, narrator Carmen Rose displays her knack for accents. However, her ability to add personality and passion to the characters' dialogue belies the flat delivery she gives to most of the narrative. In descriptive passages she is also less than successful. The mispronunciation of the central female character's name does little for the narration as a whole. Overall, this is a serviceable but relatively tiresome production.
