BOOK DESCRIPTION: A beautiful young woman is thrown together with a rakish Viscount by a twist of fate and is caught off guard by her own yearning for love and passion in this historical romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter.
When Sabrina Eversleigh ran away from home to escape the abusive hands of her new brother-in-law, she quickly ended up stranded in a blizzard. She would surely have died if not for Phillip Mercerault, who rescues her and nurses her back to health. But Sabrina soon learns Phillip is not a hero. Instead, he’s a gentleman who has compromised a lady. Now there’s only one thing left for him to do—marry her.
But Sabrina turns him down, leaving him completely baffled. However, things don’t turn out quite the way Sabrina planned, and it is she, then, who must propose, sweetening the pot with a big dowry and an offer of freedom for Phillip. But what’s a husband to do when he knows his bride is afraid of men?
