An Heiress in Distress
The late Corlinda Corville had always run other people's affairs; even death could not stop her. Corlinda had invited her grandniece, Lynn Marston, to visit England. But when the lovely American arrived, she found that her great-aunt had died and left her a sizable bequest: a fabulous estate, a phenomenal fortune, and abundant jewelry, which included the royal Stuart necklace. All would be hers . . . provided she marry one of three cousins: aristocratic Anthony, stylish Rollin or sensitive Myles.
Each man was dashing after his own fashion; each conspired to win her hand; and, to Lynn's dismay, one kept trying to do her in for a share in the fortune. But which one? It was an impossible situation: scrappy Lynn was stranded under the same roof with a would-be villain. She would not, could not, be frightened away . . . nor would she marry simply to acquire wealth. And so she resolved to outwit her dastardly pursuer, never dreaming that by doing so she would lose her heart, win a beau, and uncover an ancient family secret!
