A Lady's Point of View: A Regency Romance

Free sample

Being nearsighted in Regency-era London isn’t a crime—but it feels like one to a young lady in disgrace!

Meg Linley can barely see and is forbidden to wear spectacles. When she accidentally cuts the prince’s friend Beau Brummell at a ball, the scandal sends her packing to the countryside. Her faulty eyesight causes her to enter the wrong coach, which delivers her to the estate of handsome Lord Bryn. He mistakes her for the governess who was due to arrive from London.

Preferring work to a life of isolation, she goes along with the erroneous impression, and can’t help adoring his mischievous orphaned niece and nephew. When Meg begins falling in love with the handsome lord just as he’s about to become engaged to another woman, however, she can’t see a way out of her dilemma.

This is a lighthearted tale in the traditional Regency romance style—no sex, but plenty of romantic complications and a happy ending. “Ms. Diamond is one of the most consistently enjoyable Regency authors around.”-- Melinda Helfer, Romantic Times magazine.

A taciturn soldier and a social butterfly —is the perfect home worth the price of a marriage of inconvenience?

Blake Montague’s draconian temper and clever mind belong on the Continent, decoding French communications. Instead, as the youngest son of a baron, he’s terrorizing London ballrooms in search of a wife who will buy the commission he can’t afford.

 

Jocelyn Carrington, after years of smiling through the pain inflicted by an uncaring family, has just inherited a fortune.  Now she can buy the special home with an aviary her eccentric younger brother needs—but Blake Montague’s family owns it. They offer the house if she will marry their son and prevent him from marching off to war. Except Blake will use her dowry to buy his commission.

 

How can Jocelyn gain the home of her dreams while keeping alive a courageous man with a bad habit of attracting trouble? Can Blake believe the beautiful Jocelyn might actually free him from his family’s manipulations? 


Can this wary, cynical pair open their hearts to trust in the power of love?
