Katharine Daltry, the heroine of my book The Marchington Scandal (just reissued), had enough of high society when she was younger. But she can’t resist the pleas of a country cousin who’s come up to town for the Season. Only how can she help? She has no influence over the society siren who has fascinated her cousin’s rustic husband. She does know someone who might, but he’s the last man on earth she’d ask – handsome, heartless Lord Stonenden. They’ve barely spoken since she refused his proposal five years ago. But when it’s family, you do what you have to do. Right? So Katharine sets out to separate young Tom Marchington from his sultry obsession.
For his part, Stonenden finds the spectacle curiously fascinating. He no longer has any interest in Katharine, of course. Since she had the effrontery to reject him, he’s moved on to far more uncomplicated…endeavors. Yet somehow he can’t help but watch. Then he just has to give the campaign a small push. And finally he finds himself totally embroiled in the lovely Katharine’s schemes, with no desire whatsoever to resist.
Was there a time when you just had to put yourself out for family? Even though you weren’t sure what you could do? Comment to win copies of my two recent releases – The Bargain and The Marchington Scandal.
