Lady Victoria Ann Keyes swears to marry her rescuer if God will only save her from the fiery blaze that her modiste's shop has become. When she is indeed miraculously saved, her romantic rescuer turns out to be a large, loveable mutt!

But his owner, Viscount Ingall, refuses even to consider her heartfelt proposition of marriage. The last time he helped a lady in distress it cost him his reputation, his home and six years of his life. Yet Fate has some shocking surprises in store for the duo.

Larceny, lunacy and laughter all combine in this lighthearted romp to bring the reader a most satisfying experience. A Romantic Times Career Achievement award-winner, Barbara Metzger knows just how to mix a dash of the ridiculous with her tried-and-true romantic instincts. (Apr., 224 pp., $4.99)
