As I did, you may worry about Elsbeth. The owner of the house she was consigned to as an orphan is not a happy place for her--she does not know why but the owner really dislikes her and does everything to make her miserable. Someone is paying for her to be there instead of a poor house-but who, she has no idea. When she is informed that she has to put a garland of flowers around the gate for a ball she really does not want to attend--Viscount Andrew Blakely spots her. She is not interested which makes him all the more ready to catch her! When he hears from a friend that there is to be a ball there that evening------Meanwhile the hellacious home owner does everything she can to make the young gent think he can get Elsbeth to do what he wants---NOT. She wants to be a governess-not someone's mistress! He ends up offering her a position of governess to his niece-hoping to be able to "make her see the light" She ultimately makes him see the light!

Happily ever after--not quite yet. Someone comes to claim her from the family she never knew she had--to force her to marry his stepson--and this old codger means business!!

Will Elsbeth and Andrew find their happily after after? Read this Regency Romance and find out!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Elsbeth Blakely: An orphan who craves independence
Viscount Andrew Radford: A notorious rogue used to getting what he wants
A clash of wills – who will win?

The world always ignored Elsbeth Blakely, given that she was just another young orphan at the Smithfield House for Girls. She was never a part of the bustling world of London Smithfield Market, cooped up inside the great house with no freedom of her own.

However, life suddenly takes a turn for the worse when Elsbeth meets Viscount Andrew Radford. A notorious carousing rogue, Lord Radford sets his sights on Elsbeth to be his latest object of affection, expecting that she will simply fall into his arms as every other lady has.

But Elsbeth is determined to have her independence. Despite being forced into working at the Radford estate, Elsbeth stands up to the young viscount, finding him determined to get what he wants from her.
But, underneath it all, is Lord Radford really the scoundrel that he seems?

When news of Elsbeth’s real family comes to light, Elsbeth finds her whole world turned upside down, with only Lord Radford able to help. One thing is for certain, however, Elsbeth Blakely is not who she seems either.

Welcome to the world of the Smithfield Market in Regency Era London, a new standalone series by Rose Pearson.
