"Burkard combines elements of Sense and Sensibility and The Importance of Being Earnest to craft a delightful and comedic story that will certainly please historical fiction aficionados and those who enjoy wholesome, romantic stories."


"Thoroughly enjoyable! A witty romp that will have you smiling and swooning throughout." 


Miss Margaret Tavistock is promised in marriage to a captain who's been at sea for a decade. When she finally meets him, tempestuous sparks fly, and she impulsively adopts a daring false identity. Going by "Lady X," she vows never to marry such an infuriating man.


Captain Gabriel Rempeare is prepared to fulfill his duty and marry Miss Tavistock--if only he can clap eyes on her! Circumstances keep them apart though he cannot seem to avoid the maddeningly lovely Lady X.


When the two are thrown together in Mayfair, Miss Tavistock discovers the real nature of the captain, and regrets her subterfuge. But can such a noble man forgive deceit? Or has her mistake already cost her everything?
