Lord Holt Takes a Bride by Vivienne Lorret

USA Today Bestselling Author Vivienne Lorret launches a charming new trilogy about three debutantes who get more than they bargained for when it comes to the mating habits of scoundrels...

Heiress Winnifred Humphries refuses to marry the odious man her parents have chosen. She’ll marry for love or not at all. But how does a woman know a man truly loves her? Needing answers, she sets out to discover the marriage habits of London’s aristocrats. Yet when her friends kidnap a lord for research, Winn knows they’ve gone too far. Now she’s facing a wickedly handsome scoundrel who wants revenge.

Lord Asher Holt has the perfect plan to free himself of his father’s debts. But when a trio of foolish debutantes abducts him, their scheme ruins everything! Fuming and tied to a chair, Holt overhears that one of them is an heiress. Perhaps he isn’t above a little kidnapping either.

Yet, when the heiress runs away from her own wedding and straight into his waiting carriage, Holt finds himself on an adventure he’ll never forget, falling in love with a woman worth more than any treasure. But will Winn ever believe his heart only desires her... and not her fortune?

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Lord Holt Takes a Bride is the first installment in The Mating Habits of Scoundrels series.

Winn is in a difficult position – her father chose for her to marry a man who is in love with his mistress, and the thought of a loveless marriage while blinding oneself to what their husband was doing on the side sounded like pure torture. As a curvy girl, Winn resonated deeply with me, her insecurities and doubts over her physical appearance, and how she believes that affects her ability to be wanted and loved.

Winn's friends plead with her to make a run for it, but she is determined to honor her father's wishes. The morning of the wedding was the last straw, the cruelty of her future husband too much to bear...

The Runaway Bride: Historical Romance edition.

The angst and drama, while probably not too realistic, made for the perfect fictional escape, the pages flying by as the reader journeyed along with Winn... and in crashes Asher.

Bumbling and zany, poor Asher is having a time of it, thanks to his father's gambling addiction and a gaggle of kidnapping debs. Taking a page out of the debutantes' playbook, Asher devises a plan of action, where Lord Holt literally Takes a runaway Bride.

Asher and Winn are drawn closer through a humorous kidnapping plot – we're not going for realism here, folks. It's meant to be funny, zany, and lighthearted, with the captor and captee falling in love along the way. If taken too seriously, I could see how readers might not enjoy the romp.

USA Today bestselling author, VIVIENNE LORRET transforms copious amounts of tea into words. She is an Avon author of works including: The Wallflower Wedding Series, The Rakes of Fallow Hall Series, The Season’s Original Series, and the Misadventures in Matchmaking series.
