In this mayhem-filled romp, MacAlister delivers a charming, sweet love story, rife with fast-talking and faster moving characters and a feast of love and laughter.

Penniless Danish Princess Dagmar Marie Sophie must leave her beloved country before her odious cousin forces her into a convent. Fate is on her side when she discovers an unconscious man in her garden. He’s clearly a gentleman — one who won’t know he’s married her until it’s too late. Leo Mortimer, Earl of March, barely remembers being attacked and imprisoned by the Danes. He wakes to find his wife caring for him. Dagmar secures them passage to England and, once in London, Leo attempts to discover what happened to him. Why did he marry a woman he can’t remember? The irrepressible Dagmar turns everything upside down — including Leo’s life. (SOURCEBOOKS, Aug., 384 pp., $7.99)
