An Unchaperoned Lady . . .
When a total stranger bequeaths her a dilapidated manor house in the village of Chemford, Miss Marianne McCord plans to live in it alone. Despite the ill wishes of the townsfolk, who believe her to be nothing more than a lightskirt, Marianne won’t budge from her new home. When she has a leaky roof, the only neighbor who will repair it is the wickedly handsome Viscount Adam Jenson — a lord with a reputation as black as the stallion he rides each morning!
A Notorious Lord . . .
Hoping to escape the scandal that resulted out of a misunderstanding, Lord Jenson returns to his estate only to discover that his ill fame has traveled far beyond London. But when the lovely Marianne McCord asks him to assist her, he is delighted that she is not concerned with what the villagers say about him. Yet she must believe the rumors. For she will not let Adam close enough even for one kiss! Could it be that she fears her own timid resolve will surrender most willingly to his heart’s desire?
