How Would She Marry Her Only Love? He Avoided Her like a Plague! Though the world thought her sap-skulled for refusing Lord Littlecote's hand, Mary Anne Hawtry could not marry a man she didn't love. Unfortunately, Captain Anthony Rodes, the man she did love, had made it his mission in life to avoid her. Worse, he was engaged to another!
She had refused him once — convinced she could never be happy with an impoverished captain. Determined to make amends, she actually had a few tricks up her sleeve — but only as the very last resort! Characters: Captain Anthony Rodes and Miss Mary Anne Hawtry, Sir Maxwell Cunliffe and Sydney, Lady Cunliffe.
