One of Marion Chesney's best Regencies features a young woman betrothed at the tender age of 10 to the gentleman who had kidnapped her.
Lady Lucinda Esmond's swine of a father, the earl of Sotheran, was forever fleecing young bucks in London's gaming halls with impunity - until he cheats Captain Mark Chamfrey, who kidnaps 10-year-old Lucinda for ransom. But when Chamfrey has a change of heart and returns the girl, Earl Esmond nonetheless exacts his own price: Chamfrey can redeem himself and save his skin only by marrying his little victim nine years hence.
Lucinda's father could not have foreseen what a beauty Lucinda would become nor that Chamfrey, a newly made marquess, would find that what was supposed to be his punishment turns out be exactly what he desires!
