What should a proper lady do when she believes her days are numbered? Step One: Take a Lover . . . After being told she will not survive beyond the year's end, prim and lovely Marguerite Laurent intends to live what remains of her life to the very fullest. Though she may never know love, she will know passion—and she agrees to a whirlwind romance with a former admirer. But hours before embarking upon her grand adventure, Marguerite is abducted—by an unscrupulous rogue who boldly announces his intentions to bed and wed her before the week is out! Step Two: Live With No Regrets . . . Ash Courtland pulled himself up from the gutter to become a successful man of business, and now he wants revenge on his one-time partner for betraying him. Still, his enemy's bewitching daughter is most certainly not about to surrender her innocence to the infuriating—if shockingly attractive—cad who took her captive. Yet with no more than a touch, Ash makes her tremble with desire . . . and resisting the heat of his passion could cost Marguerite her last, best chance for ecstasy.

This was my first book from Sophie Jordan and it was a pleasant, fun read and I look forward to reading more of her works! The premise for this book intrigued me....Marguerite Laurent is told that she will not live to see her next Christmas. Of course she scoffs at the seer that told her this nonsen...
