A wild young beauty breaks from prison into High Society--only to fall victim to international intrigue in this delightful romp through Regency England. Charmingly frank and high-spirited, Mary Clampton learns to her horror that the man she's so rashly consented to marry to get out of jail is the fearsome Lord Menton, son of the villain who put her there. And no sooner is she free than she whisked off to Brighton to learn to be a lady; only when she IS one will her captor see her. Then comes the first, formidable interview, and to her own dismay, Mary finds herself drawn to the dashing, aloof Menton.

Alternately charming and maddeningly insensitive, he proceeds with a sham courtship, threatening her immediate return to prison should Mary fail to prove herself worthy of the London aristocracy. Intrigued and increasingly eager to penetrate his cold exterior, Mary finally extracts his reason for marriage and finds herself caught in a dreadful dilemma. A Love So Wild combines a beguiling heroine with an exciting story to provide uncommon entertainment.
