[Read by Lucy Rayner]

''I have my pride. I have sworn to marry the girl, and marry her I will.''

After ten long years, the Earl of Devenham has returned to wed Mary Anstey, only to find that their feelings for each other have cooled off considerably. Nevertheless, they both put on bright faces for the benefit of family and friends.

But Mary's younger sister Emily sees through their masquerade and would sacrifice anything rather than see her retiring sister married to the now-haughty earl.

Desperate measures were called for: a sleeping draught in Mary's wedding-morning chocolate and Emily could don the veil and then force an annulment once the trick was discovered.

It was the kind of plot that could - and would - get young Emily into trouble.

About the Author:

M. C. Beaton ('aka' Marion Chesney) has won international acclaim for her bestselling Hamish Macbeth mysteries and the Agatha Raisin mystery series. She is also the author of more than one hundred romance titles and a series of romantic suspense novels, the Edwardian Mystery series. Born in Scotland, she now divides her time between Paris and the English Cotswolds.

From Publishers Weekly:

This Regency romance begins with the Earl of Devenham returning home after 10 years of war to claim the hand of Mary Anstey, whose family spurned him when he was a young and untitled soldier. But Mary's sister Emily, an avid reader of romances, is determined that her sister shall not suffer a loveless marriage, and she vows to sacrifice herself instead. A drop of laudanum in Mary's chocolate on the morning of the wedding, a brown wig and a heavy veil, and a switch is accomplished at the altar, with Emily blithely assuming the marriage will be annulled as soon as the dupe is discovered. But the earl has his pride, and Emily is stuck in a marriage with a husband who detests her. Worse, she realizes that she is gradually falling in love with him. The dei ex machina are a gossip-mongering former mistress and an interfering cat named Peter, apt choices in a book that is as light as a powderpuff and twice as fluffy.
