Engaged in Passion
Francine Richards has one task: to marry an aristocrat. Her life-and a massive dowry-is dedicated to that goal. But as the daughter of a merchant, no one is offering marriage except lackwits and fortune hunters. She's just about to accept one of them when disaster strikes: Francine falls in love. Anthony Pierce is a far cry from a title lord. A bookkeeper in Mr. Richards's hat shop, Anthony has ambition and the skills to revolutionize the business. But he's falling in love with the boss's daughter. When Anthony and Francine cannot escape their attraction, Francine creates a plan of her own. Can the two have a future despite their families' objections? Or will their own desires destroy their only chance at happiness?
