Overview

What do you do when you’re The Other Woman, and your rival is younger and prettier than you are?

Althea Jameson, a young widow, has no desire to marry again. After her difficult marriage, she prizes her independence, and her friendship with Jeremy, the Viscount Stanton. It is only when his engagement to another woman is announced that she realizes she loves him.

Jeremy can’t marry for love, not with the debts his father left. Marriage to Miss Evadne Powell seems just the thing. Evadne is young, pretty, and charming. Jeremy, a veteran of the Peninsular War, is restless and energetic, and ready to settle down. He is also in love with someone else: Althea.

Events conspire to bring the three together. Althea soon realizes that Evadne is all wrong for Jeremy. He needs someone more caring and less self-centered. He needs her. Their affair is more than inconvenient; it seems impossible. But when the chance comes for something more, will Althea have the courage to reach for happiness?

Originally published by Kensington Books as An Intriguing Affair.

"This is a particularly insightful book. Ms. Kingsley has good reasons for every one of her characters’ actions and feelings...a remarkably good Regency." - Rendezvous
