Sir Gareth Locke lost an arm at Waterloo. He’s in love with his new bride—but he’s dreading their wedding night. He knows it will be an ordeal: clumsy, awkward, and mortifying.
Cecily Locke knows what to expect in the marriage bed—after all, she’s been married once before. It will be uncomfortable and a little messy, but over quickly enough.
But Cecily and Gareth are about to have a wedding night that neither of them expects...
**The Baronet's Bride is a novella of approximately 15,000 words. It is a direct sequel to The Spinster’s Secret and features some of the characters in that novel. For the best reader experience it should be read after The Spinster's Secret.**
