The very well bred Miss Sarah Clarke-Townsend has always quietly yearned for adventure, but she gets more than she bargained for when an impulsive act of courage saves her pregnant twin, but puts her own life at risk. If the kidnappers after her sister discover they've abducted Sarah instead, she will surely pay with her life. Rob Carmichael survived his disastrous family by turning his back on his heritage and becoming a formidable Bow Street Runner with a passion for justice and a talent for rescuing damsels in distress. When he discovers that the sister-in-law of his friend the Duke of Ashton has been abducted, he swiftly follows the kidnappers to Ireland. After Rob rescues Sarah, they undertake a hazardous escape. As they dodge their pursuers, Rob discovers that his companion is as intrepid as she is sunny, and Sarah finds a man who is as trustworthy as he is dangerous. But when they reach England, Rob's past reaches out to seize him in a shocking way, and the fearsome Bow Street Runner may not survive without the aid of a graceful golden lady.

Not one of my favorites, but an unusual plot that uses family relationships and friendships to enrich the setting. The romance is present but not overwhelming. A light summer read.

Sarah Clarke-Townsend was visiting her very pregnant twin sister, Mariah,the Duchess of Ashton.
Mariah was unusually restless and wanted to be moving. She talked Sarah into going out in a curricle. They made their way up to an abandoned church. They were looking at the interior when Mariah started to go into labor. The groom, who had been following them was told that the baby was coming and to go and get help as Mariah would have to be taken down the hill in something where she could lay down and she could not do so in the curricle.
The groom hadn't been gone long when they heard voices outside. Thinking it was Mariah's husband, Adam, Sarah went to the door only to be shocked as she heard men plotting to kidnap her pregnant sister.
Fearing that if they took Mariah, the baby and possibly Mariah could perish, Sarah decided that she had to save Mariah and the baby. Hiding Mariah behind the altar in an old crypt she closed the trap door and met the kidnappers head on. Because she looked just like Mariah, she convinced them she had already had her child and that she was the Duchess, The kidnappers took her not knowing that Mariah was in the crypt. They headed to Ireland.
Rob Carmichael, a bow street runner, was on his way back to London. Ashton had offered him hospitality whenever he was near Aston's family seat.
