Clara Blackburn is the orphan maid to Lady Elizabeth Morgan and is likely to remain so, until a chance meeting with the rich, handsome and highly eligible Charlie Hampton who has managed to get himself involved in a drunken wager either to persuade a lady to marry him or to marry her maid. Overhearing Lady Elizabeth and her cousin, Sir Taylor Rufford's scheme to trap him into marriage and perhaps widowhood to get his money, Clara thwarts the plans. Very quickly, Clara finds herself dismissed without a reference, Charlie feels responsible and decides, along with his until recently estranged grandfather, the Duke of Wensley, to launch Clara into society so that she might find a suitable husband. It becomes increasingly clear that the only suitable husband he considers suitable is himself. When Lady Elizabeth discovers that Clara is not the duke's ward but was her maid, she and her cousin are determined to cause a scandal by unmasking her. When Clara also hears of the terms of the wager, the stage is set for a thunderous climax. There is also the mystery of Clara's birth, she was never a lady, but she was never just a maid either. The Christmas Ball will be the talk of the ton for generations.

About the Author

Anna lives in a lovely village in Hampshire England, with her own romantic hero, otherwise known as her husband. She has two grown up children and two grandchildren. An ex-teacher, she has taught many subjects from religion to drama but has always had a passion for history and would love a time machine to be able to experience life in Georgian England, though suspects she would be more likely to be one of the maids washing the teacups than delicately drinking from them.

When she is not thinking about life in the nineteenth century, she enjoys travelling and learning about different customs and cultures, especially the food. Anna also enjoys walking in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales which provides much inspiration for her writing. She also plays the piano and is hoping one day, to play well enough so that the cat doesn’t leave the room. It has not happened yet.
