This Deluxe Version of Fated Love includes a prequel short story What the Fates Decree, and a post-story short story How the Fathers Made it Happen, both from the parents’ POV.
In Fated Love, Lady Adina, Countess Rathcavan, thinks it’s time her grandson took a bride, not just because there was no heir to the crumbling pile of stones that was her home, but since the explosion at his mill, their finances were strapped even further. The young man needed an heiress, but he had only one lady in mind, and she was as elusive as the sun in winter.
With Adina’s seventy-fifth birthday approaching, she decided to help her grandson by bringing his chosen lass, Lady Isabel Halden, to Rathcavan. And, since the lady was friends with her great-niece, Penelope, Adina could reunite her favorite relative with the man who unwillingly broke her heart when he was sent on a mission to Afghanistan. Lastly, if she could match that soft-hearted giant, Eamon Gowrey with the statuesque Brightman lass, Adina would be extra pleased with herself.
All three ladies come from good families and had more than sufficient dowries. But more importantly for Adina, they would appreciate and continue her stud long after she was gone.
A month-long house party with a ball, a fox hunt, moonlit walks in the garden and more, all bring the three couples closer. After an accident almost takes the life of one heiress, the three ladies vow to do everything in their power to stay together always. And the way they wished to start this new life was by sharing their wedding day with each other—if they can convince their new husbands of it!
