Vintage Teaser Tuesday: When A Man Marries


     "Contrary to the general belief, Kit," he began, "I did NOT intend to ask you to marry me."
     I breathed easier. He took a couple of steps toward me and stood with his arms folded, looking down at me. "I'm not at all sure, in fact, that I shall ever propose to you," he went on unpleasantly.
     "You have already done it twice. You are not going to take those back, are you, Max?" I asked, looking up at him.
     But Max was not to be cajoled. He came close and stood with his hand on the back of my chair. "What happened on the roof tonight?" He demanded hoarsely.

What do you get when you combine a wickedly sharp-tongued heroine with a case of mistaken identities, a houseful of quarantined high-society dinner party guests, and a jewel thief? A comedy of errors, a madcap mystery, and a sexy love story rolled into one—When A Man Marries by Mary Roberts Rinehart, the grande dame of early twentieth century mysteries! Originally published in 1910, When A Man Marries is one of the new enhanced digital titles from Legacy Romance's Vintage Collection, and it's only $1.49 for Kindle or Nook.
