Lucinda Brant's sweeping family sagas are a perfect reminder of why I fell in love with historical romance —Cheryl Bolen, NY Times bestselling author

Set in the opulent world of the aristocracy and inspired by real events, Midnight Marriage delivers another lavish 18th century Lucinda Brant experience—heart-wrenching drama with a happily ever after.

1760s England and France. Julian and Deb are hurriedly, and secretly, married off as teenagers. Julian is then banished to the continent. Deb is returned to the nursery, told her midnight marriage was just a bad dream from the effects of laudanum. Nine years later, Julian returns incognito to claim his bride before a debonair rival can seduce her into bigamous wedlock. But Julian’s calculated deception puts his marriage and future happiness on the edge of ruin.
