Summary

Summary

Miss Amity Doncaster, world traveler, is accustomed to adventure and risk. Benedict Stanbridge, a man of science and a spy for the Crown, has faced danger in the darker corners of foreign lands. But they are about to face a threat that is shockingly close to home. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Neatly complemented by equal measures of smoldering chemistry and lively banter, the action-packed plot is served up with plenty of dramatic flair and just the right dash of dry wit, making this a first-rate addition to Quick’s canon of classic historical romances.” Booklist (starred review)
“When Victorian world traveler Amity Doncaster meets an injured Benedict Stanbridge in a dark alley on a small Caribbean island, she saves his life and falls in love with him, leading them both into peril…Sexy romance and intriguing mystery combine for a wholly satisfying and entertaining read.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Whether writing as Amanda Quick or Jayne Ann Krentz, this is one author who always delivers novels that draw readers into the story, and Otherwise Engaged is no different as an intrepid Lady of Lantern Street is caught in an obsessive killer’s web. Tautly written, with enough twists to keep readers on their toes, Quick’s novel features a double love story, a bit of gothic flair, and a passionate scientist hero to spice up the plot.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
“Intrigue and mystery abound in this witty, cleverly crafted tale that treats fans to a charming double romance and heralds Quick’s return to non-paranormal, suspenseful historicals—at least for the moment.” Library Journal
