Despite their contrary companionship, Louis Tomlinson convinces Captain Liam Payne, formerly of Her Majesty’s Navy, to run away and elope with him. Unknown to Liam, however, is the fact that Louis is only using Liam to help him win a song-writing contest and that there’ll be no actual wedding.
Along the way they nearly run over traveling minstrel-in-training, Harry Styles, manage to get their carriage stolen at gunpoint, only to have it returned the next day and gain two more traveling companions, Niall and Zayn. An odd adventure, to say the least.
And not one of Louis’ more brilliant ideas, to be honest, as somewhere along the way he goes and falls in love with his fake fiance. What will happen when he has to tell Liam the truth?
based on A Week to be Wicked by Tessa Dare; written for the Harlequin1D challenge..
