The Rescue by Lori Wick
Harvest House Publishers, 2002, 297 pages

For some reason I don't really care too much for Lori Wicks' books (I'm probably one of a few) but it could be because I read The Rescue before I read any of her other books and they just didn't compare!

The Rescue is a regency period romance between Anne Gardiner and Robert Weston. Anne literally falls for Robert Weston and is forced by her feeble-minded father to marry the complete stranger who rescued her! Anne is such a sweet and innocent girl it's hard not to like her and Weston is such a kindhearted gentleman, I'm half in love with him myself!!!!Of course it's a romance so we know what happens in the end but what happens in between is a terrifically sweet, romantic development.

I have a soft spot for romances where the characters enter an arranged or hasty marriage and wind up in love. This story does not disappoint. If you are a fan of regency romance and amusing characters, I recommend this book. This series has been repackaged and re-released just this year so you shouldn't have a problem finding it in stores or getting an older edition for a few dollars online. The other books in the series are okay but The Rescue is by far my favorite!

  4. I enjoy the hasty marriages at times too! Not sure why...maybe because it is something out of the norm. I really liked the English Garden series...
