"Put her back in the carriage, now!" Her assailant snarled the brusque command, sending a shiver of fear through Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam.
An unseen attacker seized and tossed her into the coach.

Duncan walked unsteadily to the sideboard, poured half a tumbler of brandy and took a healthy draught. He stared at his glass, contemplating his options. There seemed to be only one.

MY IMPRESSIONS: I've just started reading this book and I'm hooked. The synopsis on Amazon says, in part:
He has the woman of his dreams, but what price will he have to pay to win her heart?
Kidnapped and sold at auction in a London brothel, Lady Katarina Fitzwilliam squelches an undeniable attraction to the masked stranger who purchased her, pits her wits against him, and escapes him and the scandal that would ruin her life.
Unable to resist temptation in a London brothel, Duncan Ferrers, Marquess of Dalbury, purchases a fiery beauty. She claims she's a lady, but how can she be?
So far in my reading, Katarina has escaped with her virtue intact, but she has enchanted the rogue who won her in the auction - a nobleman who didn't believe her story about being a member of London society. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next!
