She's on the run to a wedding. He's determined to stop her making the mistake of her life.
Tom Brodie's mission - he has no option but to accept it - is to prevent headstrong heiress Emmy Carlisle from marrying a fortune-hunter. He is not happy about it but when Emmy stows away in his car, his day goes from bad to worse.
Emmy is not a woman to sit back and let things fall as they will. She has a plan and she keeps Brodie on his toes in a rollercoaster chase from the Cotswolds to the south of France. He's more than up to the challenge, but falling in love with Emmy along the way is always going to end with his heart in pieces.
