The Wrong Coach . . .
Penniless after the death of her vicar father, Matilda Seldon has little choice but to follow her disreputable cousin's counsel, board a stagecoach, and spend her days living off the charity of distant relatives. Unfortunately, the advice is as bad as the cousin, and after discovering her last remaining treasures have been looted, Matty finds herself stranded in a village where she doesn't know a soul . . . and no one knows her. Taken in by a mischievous noblewoman, Matty is suddenly transformed from poor spinster to a lady of mystery, an attractive, perhaps scandalous, woman with a sudden bevy of persistent suitors.
The Right Gentleman . . .
As one of England's rising young solicitors, Charles North is used to the competition of the courtroom, but finding it in such abundance on the field of romance is another matter. After all, what does he really know of this Seldon woman, other than that she is kind, intelligent, attractive, and that she keeps him, a sensible barrister, rather on his well-polished toes. The handsome nobleman's son does know that the other fops and rakes vying for Matty's hand are certainly not honest or worthy of her attention. And it could be that the only way to protect the lady from making a grievous mistake is to convince her that he is the perfect choice in a husband.
