Summary: (from goodreads) What should a proper lady do when she believes her days are numbered?

Step One: Take a Lover . . .

After being told she will not survive beyond the year's end, prim and lovely Marguerite Laurent intends to live what remains of her life to the very fullest. Though she may never know love, she "will" know passion--and she agrees to a whirlwind romance with a former admirer. But hours before embarking upon her grand adventure, Marguerite is abducted--by an unscrupulous rogue who boldly announces his intentions to bed and wed her before the week is out

Step Two: Live With No Regrets . . .

Ash Courtland pulled himself up from the gutter to become a successful man of business, and now he wants revenge on his one-time partner for betraying him. Still, his enemy's bewitching daughter is most certainly "not" about to surrender her innocence to the infuriating--if shockingly attractive--cad who took her captive. Yet with no more than a touch, Ash makes her tremble with desire . . . and resisting the heat of his passion could cost Marguerite her last, best chance for ecstasy.


Marguerite was uprooted, by surprising events foreseen by a seer, from her bland practical life style. Having been told that she had less than a year to live, she makes a promise to herself to be more adventurous before her time is up. To add to her troubles, her long lost Dad re-appears and selfishly expects her and her two sisters, she just learns existed, to give him a place in society. She makes a decision to meet her sisters before she jumps into the new life of adventure as a kept woman, but this puts her at the wrong place in the wrong time.

Ash, her father's partner, abducts her to deviate the older man's plan and to put an end to the double crossing he feels coming from him, with a crazy idea he tries to implement. He was not counting on the clash of strong personalities and the inevitable attraction. To make things worse they both have a terrible fear to a heartbreak and the secret that she keeps of her soon to be demise makes a terrible void that is difficult for them to ignore.
The story is both sad and lighthearted at times, also gives you a frustrating wish to shake some sense into the characters, in all a very entertaining story.
