LOVING LADY MARCIA
In the House of Brady, three very lovely girls have hair of gold—and hearts to match—but finding a match among the gentlemen of London is one comedy of errors that could bring down the house…
MARCIA GETS SCHOOLED…
Of the three Brady sisters, Lady Marcia has always seemed the girl most likely to lead a perfectly charmed life. But after a handsome cad breaks her heart, she swears off love and devotes her life to teaching girls at a private school. In spite of her family’s wish for a London debut, Marcia is happy where she is—until terrible news sends her back to the Brady clan…and into the arms of an unexpected suitor.
ON THE SUBJECT OF LOVE
A dark and dashing earl who knows Marcia’s past, Duncan Lattimore is surprised by what a fascinating and independent woman she’s become. Marcia, too, is surprised—by the fiery attraction she feels for Duncan. But why—why—must he be the brother of the scoundrel who broke her heart? Why must Marcia’s rival at school forbid her from seeing him? How can this lady possibly resist this fellow—when they know that it’s much more than a hunch…?
“A delicious romp that will keep you laughing.”
—Sabrina Jeffries (on Kieran Kramer’s Impossible Bachelor series)
Kramer scores with the inaugural House of Brady imbroglio. Lady Marcia Sherwood, daughter of the marchioness of Brady-and yes, her sisters and stepbrothers have names to match-was compromised by seductive Finn Lattimore on her 16th birthday. She has kept it a secret, but her strong sense of honor has prevented her from seeking marriage in the five years since. Just as a jealous rival costs Marcia her beloved position as the headmistress of a girls' academy, Finn returns to London and reveals Marcia's secret to his brother, Duncan, Lord Chadwick. Appalled by his brother's behavior, Duncan decides to make Marcia's situation right through marriage. Marcia is not immune to either Finn's charm or Duncan's determined pursuit, but she is most committed to returning to the academy. Though Kramer (If You Give a Girl a Viscount) includes her characteristic lighthearted touches, she's smart and confident enough to take her characters and their situations seriously, turning what could have been a one-line joke into a deep and appealing story.
