Matchmaking mamas, rakes and gossips will do everything in their power to keep them apart. But will Society ever allow them the time to have a meaningful conversation? Can he be certain that she is not a fortune hunter? Can she be certain that his intentions are honourable? Can they find that happy ending?
About the Author
I am an accountant and a husband and father of four boys.
I grew up in a small town in northern Canada where there were a large number of characters and a constantly changing population. Being able to observe and assess people was an essential skill for small town life.
My mother taught me to read when I was four so she could get the housework done. My father loved to tell stories and taught me how. My wife and sons have taught me the value of love.
While I grew up on a steady diet of science fiction and action adventure, it was my knowledge of small town characters and love of happy endings that steered me in the direction of writing romance.
My wife is still waiting for my first science fiction book and my teens are waiting for a sword and sorcery book. It may be a while.
