A Regency Novel
Running away from possible charges of theft, assault, and breach of promise, Lady Riana Travistock heads for London where she is knifed in a street brawl when she helps a man attacked by footpads. Luckily for Lady Riana, the victim of the attack is army surgeon Captain Devlin Carrington.
Dev takes injured woman home to tend her injury. When Dev cuts off her blood-soaked chemise to suture the wound, a fortune in jewels spill onto the blood soaked sheet. Has he saved a lovely jewel thief only to watch her hang?
Weaving together a tale of half truths, Riana claims the jewels as her own. Worried about the consequences of their situation–she is after all, a lady, and he is the son of a baron–she tells Dev she ran away from her abusive husband who is a jewel merchant. Although captivated by his lovely patient, Dev investigates her story.
Set in 1811 England, Lady Runaway chronicles the tale of two people who go against society’s conventions to grab the lives they want.
