Who would make a better fiancée in a pinch — An actress? A shopkeeper? Or a school teacher?

Damion Templeton, Viscount Woodhurst, has fourteen days to find a fiancée. It’s the least he can do to make his dying grandmother happy. Of course, she doesn’t need to know it’s a temporary ruse. An actress should do nicely.

Miss Alix Adams falls off the wall of the local school while rescuing her young student from a tree. Damion rides by, and the curtain of fate rises on a new stage plan.

Secret Bride is the story of a young lady who makes a deal with a stranger. Because when you’re penniless, and an orphan, money can be so tempting.

Meet the Author

Sharol Louise and her husband live in the Pacific Northwest, where her psyche was born. However, her body was born in Los Angeles, so it took about twenty-five years for the two to catch up.

As a youngster, she thought people were referring to the dictionary when they said, “the good book,” as she grew up in the library reading Edgar Rice Burroughs, Mary Stewart, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

She’s been known to miss her bus stop when engrossed in a novel, and wishes that her books may do the same for you. Sharol is a former volunteer docent with The Seattle Public Library.

    this late Georgian romance is a warm tale

    In 1794 Viscount Damion Templeton believes his beloved grandmother is dying. He would do anything for her so when she asks him to marry, he knows he must find a bride or better yet hire someone he can introduce to his grandmother as his fiancée. Once his grandma dies, they would end the sham engagement.<BR/><BR/>Damion hires impoverished schoolteacher Alix Adams to pose as his intended. His ruse works perfect except for two things. His grandmother is not dying and he has fallen in love with his actress. Alix reciprocates even as his past rises to cause him further havoc and threatens his wealth.<BR/><BR/>Although the theme of a fake engagement has been done a zillion times this late Georgian romance is a warm tale due to the two likable protagonists who like the readers and his grandma know early on they belong together. The story line is breezy and light with the conflict coming from external sources who never quite come across as full blooded sinister villains. Still SECRET BRIDE is an enjoyable fun read as Damion finds more than a fake fiancee, he finds true love.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
