Don't be misled by the title: These Englishmen are good-looking, charismatic and attentive lovers. The only bad thing about them is they have the misfortune to fall for complicated, headstrong Americans. The characters from the first story are woven into the two subsequent ones, connecting them all into a creative, heartwarming tale of finding love and belonging in England. The only drawback: Some of Warren's main characters are cliched.

When George Hartley, the 19th Earl of Ponsford, agrees to open up his castle home, Hart House, for a historical documentary, he finds himself working a little more closely with director Maxine Larraby than he ever anticipated in "George and the Dragon Lady."

In hopes of breaking through her writer's block, suspense author Meg Stanton comes to England, where she finds the perfect man -- both for her villain and for herself -- in "Nights Round Arthur's Table."
