London’s most scandalous bachelor has finally gone too far. Caught in a situation that was innocent but too compromising, James Simpson is forced to admit that he must do the honorable thing and marry the lady. Unfortunately, marriage alone will not be enough to appease her father. He won’t agree to a dowry unless James can find a suitable husband for the lady’s elder sister-the shy and awkward Lucinda Cardington.
Lucinda doesn’t care that she is close to being “on the shelf”; she has more serious pursuits in mind. She enjoys the friendship she and James share over their love of photography, but she leaves dreams of romance to silly young ladies like her sister. James does manage to find a match for Lucinda, and his efforts to get them together are about to succeed…until James comes to the distressing realization that he doesn’t want Lucinda in anyone’s arms but his own.

    So, Jennifer, you’re a “travel-loving history geek”! Me too! These days I must travel virtually and by the printed word, however. Spent a full Summer in 1986 in the British Isles and saw much of England, and a little of Scotland, Wales and Ireland. My reading addiction to historical romances became cemented in my psyche at that time, although I started reading my mother’s hidden stash (e.g., Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor and Gone With the Wind) when I was in 8th grade. Thanks for your tour and this post.

    How awesome that you were able to spend a full summer in the British Isles. I’ve spent nearly a month there over the course of two visits, and can’t wait to go back. I’ve been able to travel many places, but I do a lot of “virtual” travel too. And I spend so much time researching Victorian England by reading the books and periodicals written during the time (many via online sources), that I feel like a virtual time traveler as well. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment!
