When Major Bartholomew Blackpool learns the girl-next-door from his childhood will be forced into an unwanted marriage, he returns home to play her pretend beau. He figures now that he's missing a leg, a faux fiancée is the best an ex-soldier can get. He admires her pluck, but the lady deserves a whole man-and he'll ensure she gets one.
Miss Daphne Vaughan hates that crying off will destroy Major Blackpool's chances of finding a real bride. She plots to make him jilt her first. Who cares if it ruins her? She never wanted a husband anyway. But the major is equally determined that "she" break the engagement. With both of them on their worst behavior, neither expects their fake betrothal to lead to love..."
Major Bartholomew Blackpool came back from the war missing the lower half of his right leg and his twin brother Edmund. While recovering, he’s yet to forgive himself for leaving his brother behind. He’s all but a recluse with little to no contact with the outside world, except with his servants.
Bartholomew's life is turned upside down by a letter from Daphne Vaughan asking for his help. Daphne needs a fiancé to thwart her guardian, Captain Blackheart from marrying her to someone she doesn't want or to be sent to Bedlam for being crazy.
Bartholomew agrees to the marriage contract, but didn't expect to fall for Daphne in the process. Daphne doesn't want a husband because it would mean she couldn't devote her time to her causes that will surely fail if she's married. Can this fake relationship turn into something more? Your answers await you in The Major's Faux Fiancée.
