'The Abduction Of Julia' by Karen Hawkins
"What can a respectable Regency miss do when kidnapped by a nobleman intent on marriage? Why, marry him, of course.Julia Frant has secretly loved Alec MacLean, the wild Viscount Hunterston from afar. So when he accidentally snatches her instead of her lovely, scheming cousin for an elopement to Gretna Green, Julia leaps at the chance to make her passionate dreams come true.Alec's in no position to quibble: if he doesn't marry by midnight and live scandal-free for a year, he loses his inheritance. At least marriage with do-gooder Julia will guarantee his fortune. But as his plain brown wren transforms herself into an elegant swan, Alec suddenly can't stay away from his last-minute wife---and when he kisses her, the inheritance is the last thing on his mind. Unfortunately, scandal can occur from the best of intentions...and Julia is never short of good intentions!"Source
My Thoughts: This read was recommended to me by a very special friend and follower, Rhonda Jones. After reading the blurb, I can see why she offered this title up to me when I asked for some suggestions. Rhonda told me, "I liked this for the reasons of opposites attract.". Now I must scour every nook and cranny of my local library to find this read! Thanks for the Rec, Rhonda! And I think you should all check this book out as well!
