An Imperfect Engagement book 2

Lord Hastings,

I bid you good morning.  I wish to thank you for the generous donation of your sister’s life to my worthy cause.  Interestingly, Miss Hastings seemed more than willing to assist me with my current endeavor.  If she proves most helpful, I shall return her body to you for a proper funeral.  However, if she becomes willful, as she has proven to be in the past, I regret that I will only be able to return pieces of her to you.

Rest assured that once I have found my inheritance, I will no longer haunt your family.  I appreciate your patience in this matter.

Please give my regrets to Lord Westwood for stealing his fiancé so young.  However, I do believe he will be happier without her.


Kidnapped by the man who murdered her father, nearly beaten to death and severely poisoned; so far, Samantha Hastings’ engagement to Lord Benjamin Westwood has been tumultuous at best.


When the killer revels his venomous revenge plot had assistance, the Hastings and Westwood families must band together to defend themselves against a new threat.  Samantha develops a risky plan to drawn the accomplice out of hiding, but this scheme may cost her more than she is willing to sacrifice.


The masked ball approaching and Samantha may not survive until her wedding day because - by the end of the evening - at least one person will die….
