Fiona Amberley wants nothing more than to dig in the Roman ruins near her home. But her dying grandmother wants to see her married, so she makes up a fiancee to grant her grandmother's wish. That is all fine and dandy until, Fiona tells her grandmother that she will soon meet the man that she will marry. The only problem now is to find a man willing to go along with her deception.

Just trying to stop the carriage so it doesn't wreck, Fiona never imagined that she would be mistaken for a highwaywoman. But she decides to go again and take advantage of the situation and try to her her "victim" to act like her fiancee.
Will she be able to convience the Duke to do her bidding before he has her arrested?
This was a wonderful debut novel by Blythe! It was quite comical and had me laughing out loud through out the story. There were so many misconceptions that lead to other misconceptions that I didn't have a clue as to how the story was going to end (other than a HEA, of course!).
I can't wait to see what Blythe has in store for us next!
