Mercy's Embrace Book 2: So Lively a Chase
and a beguiling smile
have overcome all her defenses...
Twelve-thousand a year and an extensive estate can gild a sow's ear, or so Elizabeth Elliot has always supposed. But now that she's fallen for the dashing Patrick Gill, Elizabeth is almost ready to give up Mr Rushworth's fortune.
Yet, painfully aware of her bruised pride and vulnerable heart, Elizabeth can only despise herself for loving so common a man. But it has never occured to her that darling Mr Gill guards a secret of his own--and that he just might be responsibile for her father's disappearance.
“The world of Jane Austen’s Persuasion fairly sparkles under Laura Hile’s deft and humorous touch. While Elizabeth Elliot retains the abrasive edges of Austen’s original, you’ll be as delighted as I was to see her develop into a woman deserving of a good man’s love.”
--Pamela Aidan, author of Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman
