A Kasey Michaels Alphabet Regency Romance Classic.
**BONUS NOVELLA: The Ninth Miss Noddenly**
THE SAVAGE MISS SAXON:
Long ago and far away, in 1976 actually, Kasey was asked to compile the history of her Pennsylvania township as the entire country celebrated its Bicentennial. She fell in love with the Lennai Lenape Native Americans who had inhabited the area, and in 1985, she decided to bring one of those noble men to England to protect his charge, the orphaned but quite independent Alexandra Saxon.
You can pretty well see the reason now for the title, yes?
Alex had promised her dying father she’d travel to England and present herself to her curmudgeon of a grandfather, who was certain to take her in.
Well, somebody did…
BONUS! THE NINTH MISS NODDENLY, A Regency Novella:
Miss Virginia Noddenly was the ninth and youngest daughter of Sir Roderick Noddenly, the most stubborn, pigheaded, although adorable man this side of Perdition.
“My girls will marry in the order of their birth,” Sir Roderick had decreed many years ago, and almost daily since then. “First Faith, then Hope, then Charity—good names all, but then I had never bargained on more than three—then Lucille, then Marianne, then Lettice Ann, then Myrtle—named after my sainted grandmother, who always said if I had enough girls I’d finally come through and honor her—then Georgette—after my grandfather, as fair’s fair—and, lastly, my sweet Virginia. I’ve said it, and that is how it shall be. I shall brook no opposition!”
He’d managed to pop off all but the last four, and to Virginia’s mind, that meant she was destined to die an old maid. That was bad enough, but Virginia was very much in love with one marvelously handsome Jonathan Wetherell, fourteenth Earl of Mayfield, and he loved her back.
What to do, what to do?
Why, host a house party of course, Virginia bringing her sisters with her and Jonathan providing some likely grooms. A fortnight, no more, and they’d all be happily betrothed, clearing the way for Virginia and her Jonathan.
