Arabella Caulfield has only twelve days to make it to her arranged wedding toa prince from a far off land--and save her family from certain ruin.
Captain Lucian Westfall, dashing naval intelligence officer and the new Duke of Stratton, has only twelve days to track down a notorious lady thief and haul her back to London before she escapes for good.
When Arabella's travel plans meet with disaster and Luc comes to the rescue, she vows to resist his arrogant commands, not to mention his devastating smile. She must marry a prince, or lose everything. But Luc believs Arabella is his thief and he's not going to let her go without a fight. He'll stop at nothing to prove the beauty's guilt...not even seduction.
