THE VALENTINE WISH
Genre: Regency Period, England
Miss Emma Cresswell is determined to leave behind the scandalous, reckless life that is the result of her fathers notoriety as the Devilish Dandy, an infamous jewel thief.
Becoming a companion to aging Lady Hartshore seems the perfect answer to her desire for a quiet, ordinary life. Then she realizes that the Hartshore household contains more wild antics and eccentric characters than even her fathers thieving buddies could muster. And the most interesting of them all is Lady Hartshores dashing, exciting nephew.
The delightful byplay between Debbie Raleighs unconventional hero and her repressed, yet tempted, heroine is a strong element in the appeal of THE VALENTINE WISH. Wrap this story up with a box of chocolates to give as a present to yourself! (Jan., 224 pp., $4.99)
