Royston has loved Helen since they were teenagers. He thought the feeling mutual until she up and married the local MP.

FOOLS RUSH IN by Julie Daines
Richard Arden needs a wife in order to collect his inheritance. Eliza Barnes needs to escape an arranged marriage to the odious Mr. Barrington. When Richard overhears Eliza’s plight at the coaching inn, he does the most reckless thing he’s ever done—he proposes to a woman he’s never met before. What begins as an easy solution leads Richard and Eliza on a journey across the country with Mr. Barrington at their heels, complicated even more when their fake engagement leads to feelings that are very real.
A LADY OF SCANDAL by Heather B. Moore
Unfortunately, Bridget’s marriage is over in four hours due to her husband’s tragic death. Fortunately, Bridget is now free from her distasteful marriage of convenience. When her year of mourning passes, and she meets her former husband’s cousin, Bridget discovers that her difficulties are far from over. Lord Hugh Wilde blames Bridget for his cousin’s death. But when Bridget’s sister elopes to Gretna Green with a man of questionable reputation, Lord Wilde is the only one who can help, and they both have to set aside their pride to rescue the errant sister.
My thoughts: Three novellas that take you on an adventure is what you find in Road to Gretna Green. I loved reading them, the time flew as the pages turned. (OK, I right clicked on my kindle.) I devoured this book in less than a day.
The three stories are unique, the common points that they have is that they are set in the Regency period and that they are all in a hurry to get to Gretna Green, not for their own weddings. All three are well written and the authors do a fantastic job at setting the characters and plot in a limited format.
If you want a fantastic book to read and you don't have a large amount of time to sit down and enjoy a full length book, you should read this one. You can quickly read each novella, have a story from start to finish and then when you get a little more time, read the next!
This book is clean with kissing.
