A Dangerous Expectation

The Alpha Division LLC

In the spirit of Georgette Heyer, this delightful Regency romp offers a humorous and heartwarming tale... The whole series was freaking adorable and fun. —Shari, the Delighted Reader

In the cloistered English countryside, an improbable couple will defy expectations.

Miss Cassandra Drummond, shipping heiress and consummate shut-in, flees London and the hectic to-do of her sister's upcoming nuptials. She wants a quiet summer away from everyone, especially marriage-seeking fortune hunters.

She doesn't expect Mr. Gray Abernathy to prove dangerous to her impregnable walls.

Mr. Gray Abernathy, poor ducal relation and consummate harmless flirt, gets by on his charming manners and his pretty face. He wants an independence where he isn't beholden to anyone, and certainly not a shipping heiress.

He doesn't expect Miss Cassandra Drummond to prove dangerous to his impregnable heart.

Fortunately for all, love and life can often exceed expectations...
