Add to Wish List
To extricate himself from financial difficulties, John
Beauclerc, the Earl of Finchley, concocts a scheme to marry
a stranger who's answered his advertisement.
He'll show his grandmother! That ladyâ€™s withholding money
until he can demonstrate more maturity and less scandalous
behavior. At six and twenty, the last thing he wants is to
settle down. He goes to the church at St. George's Hanover
Square to wed Miss Margaret Ponsby of Windsor, send her on
her way with Â£100, and continue to pursue wine, women and
faro with his fun-seeking friends.
After the ceremony, he realizes he's married the wrong
woman. Miss Margaret Ponsby of Windsor obviously thought the
wedding was to occur at St. George's Chapel in Windsor. Lady
Margaret Ponsby was at St. George's in London. How can he
extricate himself from this wretched marriageâ€”a marriage
over which his grandmother is ecstatic? If only Lady
Margaret Ponsby weren't so shy.
When the lanky young (though most disreputable) earl she's
worshipped from afar for as long as she could remember asks
her to move to the church's altar with him, she's powerless
to decline. Even after a wedding ceremony begins, she still
remains mute. She must be standing in for Lord Finchley's
true bride. But once she realizes she really is married to
Lord Finchley, she determines to do everything in her power
to make this a dream marriage. Even if it means imitating
her clever, talkative sister.

Re: Countess by Coincidence
I enjoy quite a bit of tropes... some of my favs are fairytale types, secret baby, mistaken identity, etc...

I enjoy books about princesses, heiresses, brides, everyday
people, nurses, mysteries especially the cozy ones with

mistaken identity - characters who re-connect - loving from afar and then the hero realizing the heroine who loved him from afar is REALLY the right person for him!

I like topes where the hero goes after the heroine right from
the start..she can protest but he knows she's his. Also, a
little comedy, or mystery, or spooks.
I enjoy your books, but I haven't read this one yet.

I enjoy tropes - mistaken identity or marriage of convenience. Thanks.

I like a variety. Marriage of convience and books with kids (they can be so
funny) are among my favorites.
