When Elsinore Cosgrove escapes a ballroom in search of adventure, she has no idea it will lead to a hasty marriage. The youngest daughter of a duke, all she wants is to make her own choices. Now she's engaged to an infuriating, handsome Scottish baron who doesn't even know her name! Using all her feminine wiles, along with advice gleaned from a training guide for hunting hounds, Elsinore is determined to mold her baron into the husband she wants.

Quin Graham is a man with many secrets. If another scandal can be avoided with a sham marriage, so be it. Only his fiancée isn't at all what he's expecting, and the clumsy, curious, and clever Elsinore refuses to be set aside. For reasons he's unwilling to explain, the last thing Quin needs is to fall for his wife.

Praise

How To Train Your Baron by Diana Lloyd was a fun read!  As an historical romance you expect a certain amount of miscommunication between the two leads.  In this case, the miscommunication was present with a dry wit and a comedy of ‘accidents’.” –Martha L., Goodreads

“I really loved this book.  It had just the right mix of fun, serious layers and adventure.” –Eva H., Goodreads

“This delightfully humorous book had me laughing out loud.” –Brenda T., Goodreads

An amusing, sweet, and adventurous historical romance. It has lovely characters and an intriguing story. I loved it.’ –Petula W., Goodreads 

“This was such a fun read! I’ll definitely be reading more from Diana Lloyd in the future!” –Erika C., NetGalley
