"This sweet Pride & Prejudice romance will have you laughing."

Miss Georgiana Darcy's first season was a resounding success, judging from the eleven marriage proposals she received—including one from the most sought-after bachelor in the kingdom. The Earl of Hampton is handsome and courtly and clearly in want of Miss Darcy's large dowry. Uniting herself with his lordship, she is sure, would please her dear brother. If only she could forget her lifelong love of Robert, Captain Farrington of his Majesty's Dragoons, currently in Spain.

Robert returns to England to seek his brother's permission to marry a Spanish noblewoman, but has to wait until his brother returns from the Continent. His oldest friend, Georgiana Darcy (whom he has always called George), won't hear of him being alone at his nearby Bodworth House when Pemberley is teeming with activity. Robert is immediately repulsed by Lord Hampton and knows the man's not worthy of George.

Will Robert realize what he feels for Georgiana is more than friendship? Will they be able to overcome well-intentioned meddling from those at Pemberley?

Having never left Upper Barrington in her twenty years, orphan Miss Emma Hastings is  overjoyed when the uncle she's never met invites her to come live with him in London. Everything about living in the Capital lures her. She doesn't even mind sharing her seat in the mail coach with a gargantuan man whose belly rests on his lap. Even when her uncle fails to meet her at the posting inn in London, she's too exhilarated over the city's sights and sounds to be worried. After many hours pass and her uncle does not collect her, she determines to lug her trunk behind her as she struggles through London's streets at night to find her uncle's home.

Spurned by his mistress and vowing to never love again, Adam Birmingham, whose family is the richest in Britain, decides to get very drunk. As he's staggering home, he takes pity on a very small young lady who's lugging a very large trunk behind her. In the rain. Her destination is the home of his next-door neighbor, but no one answers the bell. Adam is compelled to ask the young woman to spend the night at his home. Promptly after showing her the chamber in which she'll sleep, Adam passes out on her chaise. It's not until the following morning he remembers that the lady's uncle has died.

When Adam learns that Emma cannot return to Upper Barrington and that she has nowhere to go, he offers marriage to the hysterical lady. His heart is so shattered, he will never love again. Why not make this helpless orphan happy? Soon after they wed, they become convinced that someone has forged her uncle's will--and likely murdered her uncle. Their resolve to bring the murderer to justice jeopardizes Emma's life. Knowing she's in danger brings out Adam's protective instincts--and something far deeper, something he'd thought to never feel again. . .
