Fate will have her way...
Eliza Terribury is determined to be the first of her sisters to evade her mother's attempts to shoo her down the aisle. Her novel-writing dreams will wither under the demands placed on a gentleman's wife.
Saddled with his title at a young age, Michael Gerard, the elusive Marquess of Rutherford, has always done his duty, but he will not be pressured into choosing a wife. He just never expected the rush of attraction every time the impertinent young Eliza crosses his path.
When a completely innocent incident leaves Rutherford's hands in a compromising position on Eliza's bare skin, they have no choice but to announce an engagement. Privately, they agree to seek a way out of the unwanted nuptials.
Yet Eliza's free spirit and understated sensuality stirs Michael's desire. And Eliza discovers there is more to the arrogant lord than meets the eye, especially when she wonders if it is purely her writer's imagination that puts his face behind a mysterious highwayman's mask.
Warning: Contains one haughty lord with the body of a medieval warrior, a seventh daughter with attitude to spare, and one tricky spider with eight legs guided by Fate.
