An Ambitious Lady . . .
Marianne Pamberley had but one goal for the coming Season — to make a brilliant match! After years of doing without at Lady Brook Cottage, her sister's fine marriage had brought Marianne all the dowry she needed to take London by storm. So what if her dear friend, Jaspar, thought her want-witted and shallow-minded. It would take more than the disapproval of a former stable hand to stop Marianne from seeking her destiny among the highest circles of the ton. If only Jaspar would stop kissing her so wickedly, she knew she could accomplish her objective in record time!
A Determined Gentleman . . .
Having risen above his humble beginnings, Sir Jaspar Vernham meant to show Marianne the error of her ways. The little minx would find nothing but heartache among the calculating Corinthians, but she refused to see that life in the country — as his beloved wife, of course — would bring all the joy she sought. Vowing to set things aright, he followed her to town and planned a campaign of his own. He would befuddle her with stolen embraces, and teach her that love matches could be the most brilliant of all!
