About this title

Synopsis:

HAS ENGLAND'S INFAMOUS BRIDE THIEF FINALLY MET HIS MATCH? Samantha Briggeham is far more interested in science than marriage, and is horrified when her well-meaning but ill-advised parents announce their plan for her to marry. Sammie has no intention of being betrothed--especially to a man she does not love. Her clever plan to unbetroth herself goes perfectly--until she is swept into a pair of powerful arms and spirited away by a masked rider. News of Sammie's heroic rescue by the Bride Thief turns her into the toast of the ton, wooed by suitors far and wide. But she can't forget the swashbuckling, mysterious brigand who abducted her. Then she meets Eric Landsdowne, the dashing and seductive Earl of Wesley... His exploits are legendary, his life filled with danger, the hangman’s noose a constant and growing threat. With his true identity a scrupulously guarded secret, the elusive Bride Thief helps women escape the unhappy fate of forced, arranged marriages. But when he mistakenly rescues the newly unbetrothed Sammie, Eric finds himself battling feelings he believed long buried. Marriage is out of the question, which leaves only one option: A clandestine affair that can lead to scandal, social ruin, and the unmasking and ultimate death of England’s Notorious Bride Thief. "A passionate tale peopled with appealing characters, D'Alessandro's newest Regency-era romance is fresh, funny and loaded with charm"--Publishers Weekly "Jacquie D'Alessandro writes romance at its enchanting best!"--New York Times Best Selling author Teresa Medeiros "Full of charm and love and laughter...a delightful read."--Affaire de Coeur Dear Reader, The Bride Thief was originally published in 2002. I am delighted to be able to make this classic Regency-era historical romance available again to readers who missed it the first time around. The story sprang from a tiny seed of an idea that took root in my mind after watching the movie The Mask of Zorro. I immediately knew I had to write a masked hero, and soon after The Bride Thief was born. I hope you enjoy Samantha and Eric’s love story as much as I enjoyed writing it. I wish you much good health, happiness, and of course, romance. Best regards, Jacquie D'Alessandro

From the Inside Flap:

HAS ENGLAND'S MOST INFAMOUS BRIDE THIEF FINALLY MET HIS MATCH?

At six-and-twenty, Samantha Briggeham knew her marital prospects were fading by the season and she was pleased by the thought. She had no intention of being betrothed–especially against her will–to a man she did not love. She had a plan...and it didn't include being swept into a pair of powerful arms and spirited away by a masked rider. News of Sammie's heroic rescue from undesired wedlock turned her into the toast of the ton, wooed by suitors far and wide. But she couldn't forget the swashbuckling brigand who'd abducted her–something about him intrigued her completely. Then she met Eric Landsdowne, the dashing and seductive Earl of Wesley.

His exploits were legendary, his life filled with danger. He was the elusive Bride Thief, who had his own reasons for helping young women escape the unhappy fate of arranged marriages, and whose true identity was a scrupulously guarded secret. But from the moment he rescued Sammie–only to discover she'd already managed to get herself un-betrothed–Eric knew he couldn't lose her a second time. Marriage was out of the question. Which left only one option: A clandestine affair that might lead to scandal, social ruin, and the unmasking of a love-bested legend. . .
