Lady Harriet Edgeworth decided, at first sight of Lord Geoffrey, that he was the man for her, her hero. In the year since, nothing has changed her mind. When Lord Geoffrey moves to an estate close to her home, she is delighted, and soon finds a way to volunteer to assist with the inventory of his new property.

The Viscount’s Unsuitable Affair
Anna Perkins needed her job, as a maid at Havisham Hall, home of the Earl of Stanningfield, to survive, but one small accident was enough to put everything at risk, including her heart. Spilling a tray of jellies all over a member of the aristocracy was definitely not what she had set out to do! The fact that the gentleman in question was kind to her, and was, in addition, quite the most handsome man that she had ever met, was more difficult to deal with than cruelty might have been.
Richard Maitland, Viscount Bellham, was instantly captivated by the beautiful maid he collided with in the corridor, jellies notwithstanding. Something about her fascinated him, and raised his desire, in a way that the husband hunting young ladies of the aristocracy did not. A rather annoying thing for him to discover, given that dallying with the lower classes was not on his agenda, and might even get him disinherited, should his family discover it.
But love and desire have no respect for “how things should be”, and, sometimes, fate intervenes with an unexpected outcome…..
