Abbott is in for a surprise when she decides to set out and find
her father, only to discover that she is broke and that the Bank
is in charge of her guardianship. It is decided that the only thing
to do is find her a husband, much to Phadra's surprise. It is the
only way Sir Cecil Evans knows to save his reputation, and he asks
Grant Morgan for help by offering Grant marriage to his own daughter,
knowing that Grant will jump at the chance to marry above himself
to have a title.
will do anything to not be like his own father. Marrying Sir Cecil's
daughter will prove that he can be better that his father. However,
he never counted on the feeling he had for the strong-headed Phadra.
When Phadra sneaks off to search for her father, and Grant has to
find her before anyone else catches wind that she is gone, all plans
are blown to pieces. After discovering where Phadra is, Grant is
shot by highwaymen, and Phadra tends to his wounds -- only to be
found the next morning by Sir Cecil and his wife. Now Grant must
marry Phadra to save her reputation.
Maxwell gives us another superb read in "Treasured Vows."
From cover to cover you will be engrossed in this story with its
wonderful characters. Phadra is not like any other lady of the Regency
times. She is her own person down to even the style of dress. Grant
makes a wonderful hero, except for his single-minded thinking, but
you will be very entertained as Phadra sets out to change that.
Grant learns to live his life for himself, not for what he wants
others to think of him. So if you enjoy a great love story that
will have you laughing, then "Treasured Vows" is one book
you don't want to miss.
