A Rake To The Rescue 

Lucy Vaughan has never wanted a husband after witnessing her father’s mistreatment of her mother. Now she faces her worst nightmare, a forced marriage to a man she fears. Who better to help her to flee than Bertie Lovell, the boy who slayed dragons for her when they were children.

Bertie is the black sheep of his family but longs to leave his wild ways behind him and settle down. Spending time together on the road, when Lucy’s suitor proves difficult to shake off, leads to their friendship developing into something deeper. Bertie offers to marry Lucy himself.  Can Lucy overcome her fear of marriage and accept Bertie’s offer?

About Josie Bonham

I live in the English midlands, surrounded by towns full of history such as Evesham, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwick and Worcester. Which is perhaps why my favourite reads are historical. Out of all the periods to choose from the elegant Regency era stirs my imagination the most. The true Regency lasted from 1811 until 1820 but dates as wide as 1789 to 1837 have been included in the extended Regency period. For me the true flavour of this period emerges after the iniquitous hair powder tax of 1795, unsurprisingly, scuppered the fashion for hair powder almost overnight.

I have always dabbled in stories but it took the combined efforts of my sister and eldest niece to set me on the path to writing novels. My Regency romances, with a dash of adventure and intrigue, are the result.
