MISS WESTLAKE'S WINDFALL
Genre: Regency Period, England
Ada cannot bear the thought that Viscount Ashmead should marry her out of pity and refuses to believe that he can truly love her after all, he still calls her Addled Ada as if they were merely children! When his lovely neighbor turns down his proposal of marriage yet again, the Viscount determines to find a way to convince her of the sincerity of his regard.
However, planting a small fortune in her orchard turns out NOT to be his best idea ever. It takes all of his ingenuity, not to mention the help of his piratical half-brother, the ladys eccentric yet lovely sister and a smuggler or two to finally convince his darling that he does indeed love her to distraction. This enchanting little tale will no doubt have readers laughing out loud with its witty dialogue and delightfully absurd situations. Ms. Metzger proves yet again why shes such a favorite with Regency fans. (Apr., 224 pp., $4.99)
