Lady Isabella’s Ogre

Free sample

She’s one of London’s beauties ... He's London's ogre.

Lady Isabella Knox enjoys her independence. She collects strays—dogs, kittens, runaway brides—but she has no intention of collecting a husband.

Major Nicholas Reynolds returned from the Battle of Waterloo a hero. He’s had enough of soldiering; all he wants now is a bride ... but his scarred face sends young ladies fleeing.

When a slip of her tongue brands the major an ogre, his chances of marriage disintegrate. Determined to put things to rights, Isabella sets out to revive the major’s marriage prospects. How better than for the two of them to indulge in a make-believe flirtation? They both know it’s not real, so where’s the danger?

But Isabella is soon in over her head—and so is Major Reynolds.

"This story has it all: damsels in distress, villains, heroes, romance, suspense, mistakes & misunderstandings, all wrapped up in one cannot-put-it-down story." ~ Goodreads reviewer

(Lady Isabella’s Ogre is a new version of Beauty and the Scarred Hero, which was published under the penname Emily May. The last few chapters have been rewritten. Some things are the same, some are different...)
