The fugitive colonel!
Years ago, Colonel Sir Edward Grey broke off his engagement to Arabella, destroying their chance for happiness. Now the English Civil War has thrown them back together and, fleeing for his life, Edward needs Arabella's help to protect his son.
Lady Arabella Fairburn is reluctant to aid the man who once spurned her, yet sees he is still honorable at heart. Together they escape to France, where Arabella must decide if she can take a chance on Edward—and their rekindled passion—once again!
