When not escaping to another world via reading or writing a book, she spends her time chasing two young boys around the house, being hunted by wild animals, or sitting on the swing in the backyard where she has to use her arms as shields to deflect projectiles AKA: balls, water balloons, sticks, pinecones, and anything else one of her boys picks up to hurl at his brother who just happens to be hiding behind her.

- To His Lady's Rescue (Historical Regency Romance)
on April 06, 2011
This novella grabbed my attention from the start as it opens with Bella, our tomboyish heroine, climbing into a naked man’s bedroom. But not just any naked man’s bedroom, this man, Gilbert, was once her closest friend and she’s sought him out to help her escape her impending marriage to her repulsive cousin, Edgar.
Gilbert doesn’t recognize her at first and reacts as any man in his condition would when he sees a beautiful girl: he sweeps her into his arms and under him, then kisses her. Thoroughly.
Once Bella is able to get him to understand who she is, he releases her and she explains her current situation. Unfortunately Gilbert has no real solution for her and tells her his problem: he’s in financial ruin and is about to lose his prized estate.
Quick-thinking Bella comes up with a plan that just might save them both: a marriage of convenience!
Reluctantly, Gilbert agrees though he’s not sure it’s morally right to take advantage of Bella and her sizable trust in this way, even if it is just a marriage of convenience. But when she’s kidnapped and he’s forced to hunt her down, he realizes the strong emotions he feels for her may not be just the love of a childhood friend, but something more. Yet, as he realizes these feelings, he also realizes he may not make it in time…
This novella moves at a nice, quick pace without a lot of extra “fluff” to bog it down. The story flowed smoothly together giving enough detail to show the closeness the hero and heroine shared when they played together as children as well as enough to make you cringe when you read the names of the villains, aka the heroine’s family members. If you like plots where childhood friends can fall in love, you’ll enjoy this novella.
