Watch out what you wish for...
For three couples, a letter promising an anonymous gift of
wealth offers worldly success and dreams come true, provided
each pair can learn not only to work together, but also to
see differences as strengths.
A is for Amorous by Grace Burrowes
Adalicia Beauvais has no use for children, and even less use
for most men. Plato wasn't a bad sort, and Euclid was bright
enough, but the modern variety of male holds no appeal for
her. To earn ownership of a lovely country estate with a
delightfully well stocked library, Ada must raise funds for
an orphanage full of noisy, malodorous urchins.
As if that isn't challenge enough, her only ally in this
endeavor, is the headmaster, Lord John, who loves children,
referees cricket matches, and plucks Adaâ€™s very, very last
nerve, even though she knows his devotion to the children is
genuine, as is the orphanageâ€™s need for funds. Opposites
donâ€™t always attract, but in this case, they must work
together for thirty days, or neither Adaâ€™s nor Johnâ€™s dreams
will ever come true.
B is for Beautiful Secrets by Vanessa Riley
Desperate to win proper dowries for his younger sisters,
August Sedgewick has thirty days to sell his treasured art,
make amends with his estranged brother, Lord Haverthon, and
endure the prickly company of the business-minded Miss
Nettles. The dedicated dressmaker is the toughest part of
the deal for she's more adroit at lecturing him on the
habits of trade than succumbing to his charms. Yet, the
sparkle of joy radiating in her spectacles as August
distracts her with leisurely picnics and long rides in the
park, teaches him more than he bargained for.
Modiste for those with secrets--pregnant brides-to-be, aging
courtesans desperate to keep their patron's attention,
Mary-Anne Nettles would love the opportunity to have her
talent out of the shadows and as she creates the bridal gown
for the event of the season, the Earl of Haverthon's
wedding. To win that chance, the demure woman must spend
time with the earl's flamboyant brother helping him set up a
business in trade. Yet, Mr. Sedgewick proves a difficult
student, teaching Mary-Anne about fun and drawing her deeper
into the unseen turmoil of Ton.
Can two very different souls rise above secrets to find a
forever love for all the world to see?
C is for The Chapel of Love by Kelly Bowen
Henry Blackmore has always been a black sheep. He's defied
his ducal family, ignored expectations, and overcome tragedy
to chase his own dreams of becoming a renowned architect.
The only task standing between his fierce ambition and
everything he's ever wanted is the restoration of his
family's crumbling country manor. But first, he has to do
something about Heaton Hall's impossible steward.
Heaton Hall was essentially abandoned when Maeve Murray
became steward after the death of her father. When Henry
arrives with his pockets full of cash, Maeve is delighted -
until she realizes that the money is not to help the
struggling tenants but to restore the frivolous ballroom.
Nonetheless, Maeve and Henry, they need each other, and
working together might just restore more than a crumbling
manor - it could restore two broken hearts!
