Lady Bethany would rather die a spinster than submit to marriage—and thus reveal the horrible secret she has harbored for more than a year
Lord Locke is far too immersed in his service to the Crown for romance, but Lady Bethany is in dire circumstances.
Indebted to Bethany’s late father and his close friend, the earl offers a perfect solution for both of them: a marriage in name only.
Perfect, if only they weren’t so irresistibly drawn to each other—and if Bethany hadn’t found herself falling in love with a man even more mysterious than his reputation. Perfect, until she unwittingly learns he’s protecting her from a threat to her life.
To Mark, Bethany is just another assignment, a woman he’s convinced is hiding something. His offer of marriage was meant only to make it easier to safeguard her.
But when the simple threat turns to attempted murder and treason, Mark realizes that Bethany has stolen his heart and he can do nothing less than throw himself into a race against time to save her, whatever the price.
Susan was born and raised a California girl but is grateful to have lived on the Oregon coast and in the Rocky Mountains of northern Utah. She’s now enjoying living with her husband in the incomparable beauty of the Redwood forest, nestled against the rugged coast of Northern California.
Susan raised a tribe of children, making ends meet as a registered nurse and lactation consultant, and now her tribe members have tribes of their own and she just doesn’t get to see enough of them. She loves to travel and is thrilled with a good movie or a great book, but writing is her passion. She writes almost anything, especially epic fantasy and romance. Saving Lord Whitton’s Daughter is her first Regency Romance.

Saving Lord Whitton’s Daughter is a clean, engaging historical romance by Susan Tietjen. I found the reading great, the pacing smooth and the characters fun and likeable. The scenes portray a proper era and the characters play their part divinely.
Lady Bethany doesn’t want to marry on account of being hurt horribly one night, and she feels that she has nothing to offer a man. For up to a year she manages to avoid the wedding bells, until her mother tells her that if she doesn’t marry soon they will lose their home and the precious horses her father raced there.
Lord Locke, for his part, after finding out about the young woman’s dire situation, and having been great friends with her late father and older brother, feels the only way he can help her is by marrying her. His work for the crown keeps him away from his home most of the year, so he offers her a marriage of convenience and only in name.
It is so fun to see them slowly falling in love, yet no wanting to impose on the other’s feelings. Also their promises to each other to not demand from the other any rights to their marriages vows keeps them apart for a long while. It is an excellent romance and could be loved by either YA or adults alike. Great job.
