A hellion on the run.

Lady India Sinclair will stop at nothing to live life on her own terms—even stealing a ship and fleeing to the Mediterranean. At last on her own, free to do as she pleases, she is determined to chart her own course. There's only one problem...

A gentleman determined to possess her.

Nicholas Warre has made a deal. To save his endangered estate, he will find Lady India, marry her and bring her back to England at the behest of her father. And with thousands at stake, he doesn't much care what the lady thinks of the idea. But as the two engage in a contest of wills, the heat between them becomes undeniable . . . and the wedding they each dread may lead to a love they can't live without.

MY REVIEW:  "A Wedding by Dawn" is a captivating historical romantic adventure from author Alison DeLaine. All of her life, Lady India Sinclair wished for one thing--freedom from the conventions and constrictions of a world ruled and dominated by men. A misfit and outcast within her own family, India had always known that she would never measure to society's expectations of a lady's proper behavior. Her domineering father had been merciless in his attempts to break her will and force her into a suitable marriage. Despite her beauty and title, her well-known misadventures and love of the seafaring life had narrowed the list of matrimonial prospects to gentleman willing to be bought by her father. With the help of her friend, Millie, India commandeers a friend's ship, and once again she escapes by sea, this time to the Mediterranean. Dressing as a man, and acting twice as bold, she thinks perhaps she has finally found a free life. However, she hadn't counted on the very determined Nicholas Warre, Lord Taggart, who comes bearing a marriage contract signed by her father. Nicholas is desperate to save his family estate from being confiscated by debt, and the generous sum paid by India's father as an inducement to marriage will solve his money problems. India herself is a world of trouble, even more vexing and desirable than he could have imagined. She wants nothing to do with marriage, and certainly nothing to do with him--even though he stirs new longings that she has never experienced. As the two of them engage in a battle of wills and fight the fiery attraction between them, something else begins to bloom between them. Each has secrets and personal issues shadowing their path, but will a growing mutual affection lead to joined hearts and the happiest of futures? For the most enjoyment read the author's trio of adventure-filled historical romances in this order: "A Gentleman 'Til Midnight"; "A Wedding by Dawn"; and "A Promise by Daylight".

The complication they don't want…...

Lady Katherine Kinloch survived captivity once. Now the notorious captain of her own ship, she refuses to let anyone jeopardize her hard-won freedom. But on a voyage to England to fight for her family's endangered estate, Katherine is thrown off course when she unknowingly rescues celebrated naval captain James Warre…, a man who stands for everything she despises. 

The passion they desperately need...… 

Haunted by regret for his role in her dark past, James is determined to be more than the cold, calculating officer Katherine expects. Her seduction is his obsession, but his pride hangs in the balance if he gives in to temptation. And hiding beneath the scorching attraction between them lies a secret that could force the two apart for good.

A notorious rake…

In the aftermath of a near-fatal accident, the virile and charming Duke of Winston vowed to reform his ways. But for an infamous rogue, it's easier said than done. Hiring a personal medic, he sets about recovering from his injuries—and avoiding temptation at all costs. Little does Winston know, the one temptation he can't resist might be hiding before his very eyes.

Tenacious and untouched…

Without a friend or farthing in the world, posing as a man is Miss Millicent Germain's only chance to achieve her dream of becoming a physician. But working for the decadent duke is trickier than no-nonsense Millie anticipated—and his touch threatens to awaken her deepest desires. By daylight, the two are at odds…but by night, their attraction may prove undeniable.
