Deirdre and Desire By M. C. Beaton

Flame-haired Deirdre is determined to marry for love. She refuses her father’s choice for her—the gorgeous and rich Lord Harry Desire—out of hand, choosing instead to elope with Guy Wentwater. But when Wentwater proves not to be the paragon Deirdre believes, she never expects Lord Harry to come to the rescue—nor to welcome his return.
