An Innocent Encounter Forced to leave her governess position in underserved disgrace, Miss Susan Layne wonders how she'll ever secure another post. Then, on the coach ride home, she meets Arabella Leighton, an heiress who is fleeing her overbearing guardian. The two women look remarkably alike . . . so Susan can hardly be held accountable when an accident lands her — literally — in the shoes of her newfound friend.
An Accidental Imposter Irresponsible chit! Not that the Earl of Mayfield could really blame his ward for running away; the suitor he'd permitted to court Arabella was a rather unappealing sort. But to now claim that her name is Susan Layne and not his Arabella was simply too much! As for "Arabella" she was enjoying her new life in London . . . and beginning to like her handsome guardian. What was an innocent imposter to do? Why, make him fall in love with her, of course!
