What's love to do with anything? ...
Immersed in her herbal laboratory, Lady Felicity secretly yearns for a dashing, romantic love straight from a gothic novel. So when her brother's houseguest, Lord Andover, presses her hands to his chest, and proposes, she is too stunned to take in his words of undying love. Words he surely spoke. Didn't he? Oh, drat, she should have listened...
Victims of misguided and inept medical men, Lord Andover's father and brothers are in their graves, his mother lost to the apothecary's opium. Desperate to save his mother, give her a will to live, he sets three goals: marry a sweet, soothing young lady, produce an heir and free his homes of herbalists and quacks. In return, he offers all that he is, all that he owns, except his beleaguered heart.
Title, wealth, and good name are all a man need offer.

About the Author
Writing was a tool, not a toy, until a stay in a haunted hotel. Howling wind and creaking floors sent Becca to a bookcase full of dog-eared romances. Fascination swept away sleeplessness. Hooked, she read old romances, new romances, both sexy and sweet, until her own tales begged to be written.
Living in Florida, Becca divides her time between dreaming up stories, diving deep into history, kayaking, and swimming. Her husband gives her the space she needs by fishing mangroves and waterways, or watching football (the English sort) with his British buddies. Becca and her hubby break the routine with adventure travel; though, at heart, Becca is a homebody believing there is no greater playground than inside the mind.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
An Independent Miss by Becca St. John is an entertaining read. Ms St. John has delivered a well written book. Felicity and Andover's story is loaded with lovable characters, drama, humor and spice. I enjoyed reading An Independent Miss and look forward to reading more from Becca St. John in the future. An Independent Miss is book 2 in The Women of the Woods Series, but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
