Valerie Bowman's Regency-set historicals are filled with witty dialogue and headstrong heroines (and the heroes who get to tame them—or be tamed!). Today, H&H is pleased to reveal the cover for her newest, Secrets of a Runaway Bride, book 2 in the Secret Brides trilogy.
Here's the official description:
THE THRILL OF ESCAPE
Miss Annie Andrews is finally free to marry the man she loves. With her overprotective sister out of the country on her honeymoon, nothing can prevent her flight to Gretna Greene—nothing, that is, but an abduction by the wrong gentleman.
THE SWEETNESS OF SURRENDER
When Jordan Holloway, the Earl of Ashbourne, promised to look after his best friend's sister-in-law, he didn’t realize she would prove so difficult. But when he spirits her away to his country house to prevent her elopement, he discovers that the tempting beauty knows how to put up a fight. To make matters worse, he’s stuck playing the role of honorable protector...when what he really wants is to run away with her himself.
Secrets of a Runaway Bride will be available March 26, 2013. Good news for those who hate to wait, though: the first book in the trilogy and Valerie Bowman's debut novel, Secrets of a Wedding Night, is out on September 25—look for an excerpt soon!
