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
