Beautiful, headstrong Madeleine of Elford has picked her husband. Unfortunately her family disagrees. When her father organizes a tournament to parade alternative suitors in front of Madeleine, she is outraged but determined to stay true.
Childhood nemesis, Thomas of Draycott, arrives at Elford and from the moment they meet again, tests her resolve. A skilled warrior, handsome and honorable, Thomas is her father’s favorite, and only has to be near Madeleine for sparks of all kinds to ignite.
Thomas remembers Madeleine well from fostering at Elford, and even his desperate need for a rich wife would not persuade him to woo a woman who hates him. Except Madeleine is all grown up and Thomas is experiencing strong feelings of a most inconvenient kind. And Madeleine doesn’t appear to hate him after all.
Battle lines are blurred, as enemies become lovers, in the Betrothal Melee.
Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.
Mimicking her globe trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother. She currently lives in Ottawa, Canada, filling her empty nest with fur babies. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.
