Titled gentlemen are supposed to be perfect. Whether it be good looks, charm, or eloquent speech, everyone expects an earl to be refined in every way. And if the earl isn’t, he risks being shamed by the Ton. No one knows this better than Landon Tait, the Earl of Farewell, who’s been on the receiving end of the Ton’s gossip since he first made his appearance in London.

After the last Season, he vowed to stay as far from London as possible. But when his brother lands into serious trouble, he has no choice but to come to his aid. He tells himself he’ll make it quick. Just one evening and his brother will be free from trouble. Then he can return to his country estate to enjoy his life of solitude.

Miss Opal Beaufort is attending a ball when she overhears the snickers about a certain gentleman who was born with a lisp. Several ladies sneak to a private room to listen to him, and something in Opal snaps. She can’t stand the idea of someone being made the laughingstock of the Ton. But as soon as she intervenes on his behalf, a scandal ensues, and she finds herself unwittingly betrothed to him.

Now, Landon isn’t only forced to stay in London to face the ridicule of the Ton, but he also must deal with a beautiful wife who might find him as imperfect as he fears.

Married in Haste Ebook Cover for Website

Brad wants to marry. Though he tells everyone it’s because he needs to start on the matter of getting an heir, deep down he’s a romantic at heart and longs for a love match. A scandal not of his doing gives him a lady who isn’t the kind of lady he wants…but it might give him the lady he needs.

~~~~~~~~~~

For Miss Ava Baynes, it was love at first sight. For Brad Bachman, Earl of Youngtown, it was disaster at first dance…

As soon as Ava meets Brad, she knows he is perfect for her, but when she accidentally makes him trip in front of everyone at the ball, he vows to avoid her at all costs.  Fate, however, has other plans for him.  And in this case, fate takes the form of Brad’s younger brother who is out for revenge. His brother sets a trap that brings the two into a scandal they can’t escape.  Now they must marry.

As much as Ava wants to marry Brad, she never wanted to do it against his will. Upon their wedding night, he runs out of her bedchamber, leaving her bed and her heart feeling empty. Her new husband doesn’t want anything to do with her, and she doesn’t know what she can do about it.

Unknown to her, Brad is attracted to her.  He just has one big problem he can’t seem to overcome, no matter how hard he tries. He’s terrified of going to her bed. Perhaps if he had some experience, he might feel more confident, but he’s never even kissed a lady. Worse, he has to deal with a conniving brother who’s telling him that he’ll fail as a lover.

As the days pass in their marriage, things get more and more strained between them. At some point, something has to give. But can one of them break down the barrier between them before they lose their chance at a happily ever after?

Despite his notable attributes, he has nothing worthwhile to contribute to the gentlemen he would love to establish friendships with.  One thing he’s noticed is that all the gentlemen around him are getting married.  So in order to have something in common with them, he does something he never thought he’d do: he lies about being betrothed.
