Undaunted By Adversity
Poor Melissa Drayton! Her eagerly awaited visit with her old school chum found her in the most unsettling situation. She had arrived at the Yorkshire estate only to find beautiful Sarah overcome with misery, and her handsome brother Adrain — newly returned from Waterloo — cold and decidedly unfriendly.
Imbued with the overzealous missionary spirit of a clergyman's daughter, cheery Melissa cannot resist the challenge to restore well-being — and soon she's off on another of her infamous crusades. But she's met her match indeed with the indomitable Lord Carsdale, a man as determined to remain in his dark melancholy as she was to free him of it. Worse, his elegant form and penetrating gaze evoked the most confusing sensations . . . as did the wild beating of her innocent heart.
Adrian, Earl of Carsdale and Miss Melissa Drayton
