He saved her life…

When Annalise Hadley is tossed over the side of her honeymoon barge, the newly-minted duchess knows she’s been left for dead — for her husband’s only interest is in her vast dowry, not her muddied lineage. However, she didn’t count on a savior. Especially not an honorable, sinfully intriguing earl who will tempt her to risk everything—again.

Now he will seduce her heart and soul

A man with his own demons, Owen Crawford, the reclusive Earl of McDowell, is enchanted by the mysterious, courageous woman he rescued. He will help her heal, teach her to protect herself, and then send her away—so that she’ll never see he’s far from the hero she believes him to be.

But days and nights alone prove that some secrets are meant to be discovered…some desires are too powerful to resist…and some wounds can only be healed by love.

My Review 
I recently discovered Sophie Jordan over the past few months, and have really loved her books that I have read so far. This newer series of hers, has been so far, inspirational. There is such emotion that is played out throughout this one. I read the first one not too long ago, so I was thrilled to have a chance to read this one though Avon and Edelweiss. This story brings out a unique tale of a woman that has had the shock of her life, and has to learn to rely on a stranger for help. When her husband on their wedding trip, tries to kill her and dumps her in the river, she barely survives, and with a broken leg, spends weeks with Owen Crawford. Owen is a army man, and has done many things that he regrets. He finds that Anna is a beautiful and engaging woman, too much temptation for him. Owen at first tries to resist her charms, but before long he sucumbs to a passion that sweeps them both away. Anna has a big secret that she must keep from Owen, in order to survive. She must never let her husband know that she is alive, or her life could be in danger again, and she might not survive the next time. I found this story to be a engaging story that was well worth the read. With some suspense, and intense drama at times, a few gypsy’s thrown into the mix,  and a villian that is bound to put chills down your spine. I found my attention captivated once more by Sophie Jordan. There hasn’t been one book by this author that I haven’t liked, and I have to say that “How to lose a bride in one night” went way beyond what I expected from Jordan. This couple may seem normal on the surface, but in the end they became very endearing especially in the end. A wonderful and sweet tale set in the Regency Era that is bound to curl your whole body. You are in for one hell of a find!!! Guaranteed for pure enjoyment.
