Overview

Lucinda Brant's writing is evocative, emotional, and a treat for the senses —Annette Blair, New York Times bestselling author

Roxton Family Saga: Mary and Christopher’s Happily Ever After

1770s Gloustershire and Hampshire.

Widowed and destitute, Lady Mary Cavendish is left with only her pride. Daughter of an earl and great-granddaughter to a Stuart king, expectations demand she remarry. But not just any man will do; her husband must rank among the nobility. As always, Mary will do her duty and ignore her heart.

Country squire Christopher Bryce has secretly loved his neighbor Mary for many years. Yet, he is resigned to the cruel reality they are not social equals and thus can never share a future together. Never mind that his scandalous past and a heartbreaking secret make him thoroughly unworthy of such a proud beauty.

But with the help of a family ghost, and the never ordinary members of the Roxton family, a happily ever after might just be possible.

I was totally captivated. Another superb book to add to an equally superb series. If you have not yet read these books, then you have many hours of wonderful storytelling to look forward to…” —Carol Cork Rakes And Rascals HIGHLY RECOMMENDED STELLAR 5 STARS

While Proud Mary can be read as a standalone, there is much more pleasure to be had by reading the series and learning to know and love this family as much as I and many other readers have. Each book has been a joy to read, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.” —Lady Wesley Romantic Historical Reviews, Rated 5 STARS

A love story of unrequited love and passion. If we’ve learned anything in the previous Roxton Family tales, love has a way of conquering all stereotypes and norms. PROUD MARY carries on the tradition of endearing and engaging works of art by Lucinda Brant.”—SWurman, Night Owl Reviews 5 STARS TOP PICK

Romance. Drama. Family secrets. There’s never a dull moment for the 18th Century’s first family…
