Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Amanda Quick is one of the pseudonyms of Jayne Ann Krantz, one of the best selling romance writers in the world. Many of Krantz’s books have a supernatural element but this one is simply a good historical crime romance romp. Amity Doncaster rescued Benedict Stanbridge in the Caribbean and nursed him back to health on the journey home but gossip about their innocent relationship has got her into trouble, not least because a dangerous serial killer has her on his hit list. Of course Amity and Benedict must join forces to defeat him and though fans may be a little disappointed at some repetitive plot devices it’s still a fun romp.

If you like Amanda Quick you might also like to read books by Jayne Ann Krentz, Caroline Harvey and Mary Stewart.

Synopsis

Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick

One does not expect to be kidnapped on a London street in broad daylight. But Amity Doncaster barely escapes with her life after she is trapped in a carriage with a blade-wielding man in a black silk mask who whispers the most vile taunts and threats into her ear. Her quick thinking, and her secret weapon, save her . . . for now. But the monster known in the press as the Bridegroom, who has left a trail of female victims in his wake, has survived the wounds she inflicts and will soon be on his feet again. He is unwholesomely obsessed by her scandalous connection to Benedict Stanbridge—gossip about their hours alone in a ship’s stateroom seems to have crossed the Atlantic faster than any sailing vessel could. Benedict refuses to let this resourceful, daring woman suffer for her romantic link to him—as tenuous as it may be. For a man and woman so skilled at disappearing, so at home in the exotic reaches of the globe, escape is always an option. But each intends to end the Bridegroom’s reign of terror in London, and will join forces to do so. And as they prepare to confront an unbalanced criminal in the heart of the city they love, they must also face feelings that neither of them can run away from. . .
