Left for dead on the battlefield, Jack, Lord Leete, is rescued by an enemy French officer and his beautiful wife. Now back in England, he rebuffs the glittering ballrooms and the ton's matchmaking efforts. He has no desire for a silly, simpering young wife.
Practical and pragmatic, Harriet Farnum has always enjoyed crossing verbal swords with Jack, a childhood friend. But she knows the handsome, dashing lord would never fall for a plain, outspoken hoyden.
Then Jack asks her for help when he learns the French officer that saved him has become a prisoner of war. Harriet agrees--if she can't win his heart, she can at least win his regard.
But as the pair sink deeper into intrigue and uncover a dangerous French plot, Jack discovers it will take true love to conquer all.

About the author
Andrea Pickens created her first book at the age of five—a neatly penciled story about cowboys—however she has since moved on from Westerns to writing about Regency England, a time and place that has captured her imagination ever since she opened the covers of Pride and Prejudice.
