Romance Historical

Can he fool his new family?
John Fitzhugh Barrett, surprised to learn he is heir to a marquessate, is determined his new status won't mean giving up his freedom. But as families from all over England descend upon Somerfield Park for the shooting season, their unmarried daughters are lining up to bag the newest trophy buck-him.

Or is he only fooling himself?
John's instinct for self- preservation inspires him to divide his attentions between a scandalous young widow, and the safely ineligible Rebecca Kearsey, daughter of a destitute baron.

The charade gives John the illusion of controlling the game but when he loses his heart to the beautiful Rebecca, all bets are off.

At our age, it's a little different (60's) so it could be watching
a favorite TV show together. Maybe having popcorn. Sometimes he
brings flowers in from the yard and will even put them in a vase
for me. It can be the little things that make it special.

A delicious dinner, at home our out, and maybe a movie!
Lily Shah 6:56pm June 12, 2015)

What’s your ideal romantic evening? I have a few but my
most favorite is a picnic on the beach with music and the
ocean. Just the two of us under the stars. Walking hand
in hand and just talking or maybe get a game of Whist in.
You just never know.
Tina Ullrich 8:08pm June 12, 2015)

We have small children, so any time we can sneak away! A babysitter, and dinner at a nice (not-kid-oriented!) restaurant is lovely!

Well I like doing every day things and not so ordinary things with my fiancé.
It can be any evening when we get to spend time with each other and say
good night to each other.
