Genre: Historical Romance
Christopher Wesley, the Marquis of Daxonbury, travels to Yorkshire to find out why the family has not heard from his aunt for several months. His aunt, Lady Miranda, is involved in a sort of home cottage industry of making lavender-filled pillows with two other lady partners.
