Four years ago, Jack Telford and Isabella Bruton made the mutual mistake of letting her contemptible brother come between them. Now that Jack has discovered her whereabouts, he'll cross snowy hill and icy dale to be reunited with his heart's desire. But his reception at Hope Cottage is lukewarm at best. No matter how much she might ache for Jack's love, Isabella knows she can never be the wife a future prime minister needs. Besides, she's forged a life and career of her own out from under the thumb of her brother. There is nothing for her in London. Until Jack catches her under the kissing bough and makes the proposal of a lifetime.
About the Author
Charlotte Russell didn’t always know she wanted to be a writer. At one point she had grand plans to be an architect, until she realized she couldn’t draw anything more complicated than a stick figure. So, she enrolled at the University of Notre Dame and studied her first love—history. Now she puts all that historical knowledge to good use by writing romances set in Regency England. When not pounding on the keyboard or tending to one husband, two cats, and three children, Charlotte is privileged to serve the people of her community at the local library. She's resided in numerous, varied locales, including Indiana, Mexico City, Phoenix, and Seattle but currently calls the heartland of the USA home.
