Hell hath no fury like a bride scorned!

Highborn country heiress Mallory Edwards was dutifully fulfilling family obligations when she exchanged marriage vows with a dashing gentleman she barely knew. But the charming beast abandoned her on their wedding night. Years later—facing prison because of her husband's debts—she has finally found the blackguard, John Barron, again. And she's not leaving until the faithless rogue grants her a divorce!

John is enchanted by this delightful hellion who causes a scene at his London soirée. Could this be the forgotten rural miss whom his father once forced him to wed? Now that Mallory's reentered his life, John desperately wants her to stay—and not merely to help him snare the criminal who is ruining them both. But winning her hardened heart will take more than sweet words and sensuous kisses—he will have to become the caring, thoughtful husband who is truly worthy of her passion and her love.

Review: Falling in Love Again

User Review  - Anissa Robere - Goodreads

I love Cathy Maxwell but I feel like all her books end the same, the beginning and the middle are great but then everything comes to end. Everything just comes to a sweet, happy (abrupt) ending with only ten pages left in the book. Read full review

Page 70 - Often such songs, with their scope for character, would be acted, some elder piping up, "O true love, have you seen my gold? And can you set me free?
