In this "entertaining comedy of errors" from a New York Times bestseller, a runaway bride is ransomed to collect on her father's debts in Regency England (Publishers Weekly). Due to a bad wager by one of its founders, the popular Poor Relation hotel is in financial trouble. Fortunately, founder Colonel Sandhurst has a plan. Offering the hotel as a sanctuary to a bride running from her arranged marriage, the colonel plans to return her to her father in exchange for a ransom rich enough to settle the hotel's debts. But the colonel's plan goes awry when the bride's jilted fiance shows up instead, mistakes a hotel maid for his future wife, and promptly falls in love. To make matters worse, the ransomed bride herself is now smitten with another dashing guest, a nobleman unhappily betrothed to another woman. Now it will take all the matchmaking prowess of the eccentric staff of the Poor Relation to get these romantic affairs in order—and save their beloved hotel from bankruptcy. "A delightful cast of memorable, unconventional (and fabulously named) characters." —Publishers Weekly
